Size of the baby: Baby Barrett is now the size of an ear of corn, approx..8.5 inches long & approx 1.5lbs.
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). My belly 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 most of my pants are now maternity or stretchy yoga pants. However, I have found that now that my belly is bigger I can use the belly band to hold up some of my non maternity pants, yay for more wardrobe options =). 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. I was able to share the movement with my best friend yesterday. It just reminds me what a miracle pregnancy really is.
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. Lately I have been sleeping in what my husband refers to as a nest of pillows and that seems to be helping.
What I miss: Not having smells literally have me running for the bathroom. Not getting heartburn.
Cravings: Ummm... nothing in particular this week.
Symptoms: Nothing new this week. Just feeling some tightness in my lower abdomen when I stand up too quickly.
Best moment this week: Spending a day in Napa shopping with my girlfriends and picking out a diaper bag for Baby B.
