13 Weeks to go!
OMG the weeks just seeming to be rushing past! Only 13 weeks to go! So SCARY!
So before I give the weekly update let me update you about something else. I am addicted to the internet. THERE I SAID IT…NO ONE tell B! He’s been saying it for weeks but I didn’t really listen but last night the internet went out at around 11:30pm…I tried to fix it for over two hours (I had downloaded something just before so I thought it was my fault) and then finally gave up. Fast foward to almost 24 hours later and I left the house to go to a local cafe that has Wi-Fi because I couldn’t take not being connected anymore! I feel pathetic! ( I have 105 posts in my google reader!?! But also keep in mind that I have perezhilton.com in there and he posts like 56 items per day) But it’s okay I’m over it and I figure I might as well indulge myself now? In a couple of weeks I won’t be able to sit on the internet all day long googling and reading blogs.
Back to Bean news…He’s still doing well 🙂 I had my glucose test yesterday and so far haven’t heard back from the doctors (the results should have come in today). So if I don’t hear from them by Tuesday I’d like to believe that I missed the dreaded gestational diabetes that my Mom and Aunt had. And just in case they do call and say something isn’t right I’ve been eating Krispy Kreme donuts and ice cream that way I won’t miss them so much when I have to give them up!
Here’s some info about what’s going on this week!
How your baby’s growing:
This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. he’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if he were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don’t bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
It’s funny because this morning is the first time I felt like I could feel him hiccuping. It’s so cute 🙂 I was up semi early this morning (especially for me) because I have an ear infection…UGH…I feel like I’ve been getting them more often and wish I could have gotten the tubes in my ears like my brother did. I called the doctors but they can’t see me until Monday by then I’m sure I’ll be feeling awful! BUT they said if I wake up early tomorrow and call at about 7:45am they may be able to squeeze me in. It’s worth a shot so I’m def going to do it. I’m such a big baby when it comes to ear infection. So I know when Bean has one it’s going to be awful on me too! I know how bad they can be!
I picked out some super cute stuff for Bean today which I’ll post whenever I come out of this non-internet hell as long as this weeks belly pictures (that we have yet to take lol)
