8 Weeks To Go!
Here’s What’s going on according to Babycenter this week!
How your baby’s growing:
By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You’re gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, he’ll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb. He now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). His skin is becoming soft and smooth as he plumps up in preparation for birth.
Everything is pretty same old same old! I still feel good. I can definitely feel myself getting bigger and bigger by the day it seems! He’s still moving around a lot and he enjoyed Thanksgiving foods that’s for sure. The only minor problem I’m having right now is that I’m getting full pretty fast and this is a little gross but sometimes I feel like the food is all backed up in my throat. It’s a hard feeling to explain but it doesn’t feel pleasant at all. Maybe it’s acid reflux? I really don’t know. And of course I’m sorta ALWAYS tired! But it’s been like that the whole pregnancy. Here are belly pictures for this week!
