Baby's Size: Baby Special is the size of a large eggplant – 2.25 pounds and 14.8 inches from top of the head to the heels.
Cravings: Still no cravings at all. It’s funny, because this is one of the questions I am asked most often… and I don’t really have anything to report! Maybe these will come in the later months of pregnancy. I’ll keep you posted J
How I'm Feeling: Still feeling dang good. I am focused on staying fit and active as long as possible, and I think it’s a bit cyclical – staying active helps me to be ABLE to stay active. Eating healthily makes me want to eat healthily, etc.
Movement: Baby is moving and shaking! I thoroughly enjoy feeling him/her moving throughout the day. It’s fun – and a bit daunting – to know that I’m never truly alone. On a larger scale, it makes me question every bite of food I put in my mouth, every step I take, and everything I breathe in to my lungs. Baby is truly loved, and I refuse to knowingly do anything to harm him or her!
My thoughts: My family was here for much of the past two weeks, and it was just a wonderful time. Long, laborious days (mostly for my parents and Scott – I did a lot of chatting) but also lot of laughs and bonding and just… needed. Being pregnant and away from them has been so difficult (much as I expect parenting away from them will be)… and I’m grateful for the holidays to allow us to spend extra time together. This time has made me wish – more than ever! - that we lived closer to each other!
