What's Baby Up To?
- Her fingernails are fully grown! Time for a mani! :)
- All of her organs are fully developed, except for her lungs.
- Her skin is no longer see-through, as she has now accumulated enough fat under her skin.
- She is supposedly sleeping 90-95% of the day... (Ha! I'm going to have to call BS on that. She is ALWAYS on the move! Although, kindly, she doesn't wake me up at night. Could I possibly be so lucky as to win the baby lottery and have an angel baby who is awake during the day and sleeps at night...? Fingers crossed!)
Symptoms: Still. Having. Heartburn. Ughhh... It is a daily occurrence. Luckily, I complained about it to my doctor and she prescribed me an extra-strength antacid medicine. Yay! Hopefully, it'll kick in soon. Does this mean baby will have a head full of golden locks when she's born? We shall see!
Other than heartburn, my belly is beginning to weigh me down. Some days I feel like it might explode because it feels so tight or even just fall off. Going for even a one mile walk is starting to be pretty taxing. I wish it were warmer - swimming in a pool, weightless, sounds like heaven to me right now...
Cravings: Popsicles. Specifically, Steel City Pops - a little popsicle shop that is within walking distance of our house. Luckily, it isn't too bad of a habit. They are made with organic, natural, and gluten-free ingredients. But... they just introduced the most delicious product in all the land - the cookie pop. A vanilla or chocolate popsicle with your choice of a chocolate chip cookie or brownie on the inside. A pregnant lady's dream come true... Or at least mine. I am trying to limit myself to 2 trips a week. Or maybe 3. ;)
Weight Gain: Too afraid to hit the scale due to my cookie pop addiction! ;)
