Size of the baby: Baby Barrett is now the size of a papaya, approx..8 inches long & approx 1.2lbs.
Total Weight Gain/loss: I have gained 6lbs (as of my last doctors appointment, I don't really want to get on the scale at home) and as you can see from the picture there is definitely a little bump there now =) It is growing everyday. I swear when I wake up the morning it has grown overnight.
Maternity Clothes: I can still wear some of my longer shirts, but all of my pants are now maternity or stretchy yoga pants. I am still totally in LOVE with leggings and sweaters.
Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby Barrett arrives in May! We have lots of guessing going on in the family, right now we are pretty split.
Movement: Definitely have been feeling movement. Baby B is moving all day long now. It is such an amazing feeling to feel baby flipping and kicking all day long. My mom & sister were able to feel Baby B move yesterday which was so fun to share.
Sleep: Sleeping okay. I am really not normally a side sleeper. I have always slept on my stomach so I am still trying hard to get used to my new sleeping position. I am thinking I may need to invest in a body pillow.
What I miss: Not having smells literally have me running for the bathroom.
Cravings: Ummm... Let's see this week I have had a major sweet tooth. Ice cream and hot chocolate in particular =)
Symptoms: Nothing new this week. I have been able to keep the heartburn under control with TUMS as needed. A friend recently introduced me to the smoothie flavored TUMS and they are much better than the traditional chalky version. Although my husband and I were lucky enough to catch the stomach flu this week which was a lovely added bonus.
Best moment this week: Laying on the couch with hubs feeling the baby move and hearing hubs say "I love our baby so much!" I about cried right then and there.
