remember when I said my sickness was a 5 week thing? well i should have known week 20 would ruin my streak! I went 10 days without puking and then Wednesday it came back. Wednesday morning was rough, but to add to it, my nose would bleed every time I would puke. same thing thursday. made for an interesting site, i'm sure, when poor philip came to check on me. kleenex stuffed up my nostril as i'm hugging the toilet :) My friend Jessie (who is 8 days behind me in pregnancy) said 'well at least you know it will end in 19 weeks'. i guess that is true:) I am definitely getting better at managing the sickness, that's for sure.
anyway, my belly is growing and so is Ainsley! and that's all that matters :)
size: This week she is the size of a 'spaghetti squash'. 8 inches long and 1 pound!!! i can't believe she is a whole pound now:)
what's going on with me: like i said, i had a good streak but sickness came back. partly because I am trying not to take nausea meds before bed. clearly that didn't work. I read my feet will start swelling, but so far so good. my scrub pants are getting a little snug though.
what's going on with baby: Her little 'flutters' have gotten more like real movements and it is a crazy feeling! This week she is developing her sense of touch. She might even be getting ahold of the umbilical cord in there (makes me nervous!). She is developing her sense of sight and can tell the difference between light and dark if I shine a flash light on my belly. Her eyelids, eyelashes and eyebrows are well formed, and her hair is forming (although right now it's pure white!).
cravings: kettle corn. YUMM.
