Here’s what is going on with the babies this week: (all info. taken from the Baby Center Website).
- The babies are about 3 1/2 inches, weigh 1 1/2 ounces and the size of Lemons.
- Their livers are starting to make bile and the spleen is helping to produce red blood cells.
- The hands and feet are more active, but I can’t feel any tiny punches or kicks yet.
Weight gained: About 5-6 pounds overall. I honestly haven’t cared to know my specific numbers. The doctor weighs me every time and hasn’t told me my weight gain is too much or too little, so no need for me to get caught up on numbers. As long as I’m healthy and my weight gain is appropriate for the babies, then I’m happy.
Workouts: I got in 4 this week, yay! I went to 2 Pop Physique classes and took Paisley on some short runs (slow 2-3 miles). I always feel better after excising, so I’m thankful I can still do it comfortably.
Symptoms: Still feeling hungry every few hours and get pretty tired at the end of the day, but overall feeling great- no morning sickness thankfully!!
Food Aversions: Nothing yet!
Food Cravings: Kind of depends on the day, but consistently cheeseburgers, milk, cheerios, and chocolate. Now I’m hungry thinking about all of these foods!
Sleep: Pretty good overall. I wake up consistently once a night to pee, but can usually fall asleep quickly. I started using my Bump Pillow and it is so comfortable…I’ll probably use it after the babies come. My husband and dog agree!
Baby Stuff Purchased: Ugh nothing specifically for the babies and it’s killing me. I’m trying to wait until we know the genders, then I’ll go on a little shopping spree! I have purchased some baby books so far:
That’s all for now, thanks for stopping by! ~M
