During month six, the average fetus measures about 13.6 inches to 14.8 inches and weighs about 1.5 to 2.5 pounds. She’s enjoying her new sense of equilibrium — she now knows which way is up and which is down. She’s growing more fat and more hair too!
How Far Along: 25
Due Date: March 13th, 2013
Boy or girl: GIRL!
Currently craving: Sour Punch Straws–sorta. I’m sick this week so I haven’t been “craving” much.
Currently Avoiding: Food in general. This sickness is not making me feel good at all.
Weight: Down a 1/2 lb, but I don’t know my weight or how much I’ve gained thus far.
Belly button status: IN!
Sleep grade: More please. Mason sleeps with me and lately more than ever he’s been ALL over me. And it seems like he can’t sleep un;ess he’s on top of me. But I can’t sleep with him on top of me!
Recent Crazy Dream: I had a dream someone was chasing me and I was hiding but it seemed like I was constantly just about to get caught. I feel like I remember going to a baseball stadium and someone’s Prom. It was random.
Evidence of pregnancy brain: Nothing right now. But it’s there.
Symptoms?: Out breathe like whoa. I can barely walk up the stairs but that may also have to do with my cold/sore throat.
Health: I didn’t get a cervical check this week as I had discussed last week but I did end up getting to hear baby girl on the doppler. Today I went in to get my weekly p17 shot and asked the nurse what I should take and she asked me to describe my symptoms (congested, sore throat, blood in the mucus I’m hacking up) and well when I said blood she got all wide eyed and went to speak with the doctor and they decided to just see me there. They prescribed me an antibiotic. Which I was happy to take. I started it tonight and I’m hoping beyond hope that I get better starting tomorrow.
Movement: All the time. Mainly at night when I’m still and sometimes I wake up to movement which I know a lot of people complain about it but I love it.
Any appointments?: I ended up having one today because I’m sick but my next cervical scan/ultrasound isn’t until next week!
Any baby related purchases? I think I ended up getting more clothes. I was going to make a collage like last time but then I got sick and lazy. I got some baby legs. And some storage baskets. I got them today and they’re going to fit so I have to order 5 more of each. Next purchase will be the mattress for the crib and her car seat!
Best thing to happen in the past week/ Worst:
Best: Baby Girl is doing well with this sickness I have.
Worst: I’m super sick and feel like shit and my patience with Mason is slim to none and I know it’s a combo of being sick and him being well two. But it’s getting rough on me :/
