Size: Large mango (not sure where they come up with these fruits/veggies since last week was a spaghetti squash which I think is bigger? I've never seen a foot-long mango...)
|Carly is the mom and she has the sweetest face!|
Worst moment of the week: Not feeling great - being in constant pain is frustrating, BUT - it's worth it so I really can't complain much. As soon as he starts moving around it puts a smile on my face.
Miss anything? Not being awake at 2AM!
Movement: Yes, lots of flipping around in there and Robert has no problem feeling it. In my Tuesday yoga class I had a hard time relaxing and letting my mind ease because he kept kicking and flipping in there! On Wednesday afternoon he was crazy - I got some videos of him moving, since we can see it from the outside. Feels like he is practicing karate (watch out Rowen!). He kicks around the 2-4 second mark in this video (it's easier to see if you enlarge the video and watch on the YouTube website).
Food cravings: Healthy food. Over the weekend we ate pretty unhealthy, leaving me feeling sick and wiped out for about two days. I notice that food effects my mood and energy a lot, so it was back to normal after Robert's birthday dinner on Monday.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Besides the weekend fare? Nothing in particular, although I am getting fuller much faster which can make me feel claustrophobic. He is taking up more real estate these days and I can feel it!
Have you started to show yet: Yes - I took my first bare belly shot since it looks so different without a top on! It's funny to look at - you can see he is on the right side.

Skin pigment is now forming. He is now proportioned like a newborn except it is a thinner version of a newborn baby since its baby fat has not developed much yet.
The pancreas, essential in the production of hormones, is developing steadily. Baby has begun producing insulin, important for the breakdown of sugars (that's good, break down those chocolate chips).
