Baby already measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long. Right now, we weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds but he’s still got a ways to go — can you believe he’ll triple in weight before birth? She’s getting a little cramped in there, since she’s growing so fast. But you probably already realize that, since you’re getting all those jabs and kicks. She’s growing white fat deposits under his skin, and his energy is surging because of it. Feel a subtle twitch? It might be baby hiccupping.
Your 15.2- to 16.7-inch, 2.5- to 3.8-pound baby continues to grow. Her skin is getting smoother. But her brain is getting wrinklier — to make way for all that essential brain tissue. She’s now strong enough to grasp a finger!
How Far Along: 30+2
Due Date: March 13th, 2013
Boy or girl: GIRL
Currently craving: Ice Cream. Yum.
Currently Avoiding: I should be avoiding anything that gives me heartburn or indigestion but I have failed at that because everything gives me indigestion!
Weight: If I don’t ask I can’t tell!
Belly button status: IN!
Sleep grade: I can not get enough of it. I would like to start taking daily naps.
Recent Crazy Dream: Tons but none that I feel like getting into. I’m too tired 😉
Evidence of pregnancy brain: I leave things out all the time. Can’t remember what I’m saying half the time. I forget to write emails, I save them in drafts and then never send because I just can’t remember anything. gah.
Symptoms?: I’ve been a little nauseous lately and extremely tired but as far as being tired goes I’m not doing enough to keep myself *not tired*. Does that make sense?
Health/Appointments: So far so good! I got a shot today but I haven’t been to the doctor’s in over 2 weeks for an actual appointment which doesn’t sound like much but is a lot for me. I had to miss my appointment because I was visiting my family. So now I have an appointment on Monday morning. I get an u/s to see Baby3.
Movement: I’m feeling lots of kicks and punches but also rolls. I need to get it on tape!
Names: Standing answer. We’re screwed. I’m getting really frustrated. We’re running out of time.
Any baby related purchases? I got a ton of cute stuff at Babies R Us. It’s all seasonal/holiday stuff but it was a steal and I had a gift card! My grandmother also got some stuff for Baby3 for Christmas which is super cute. I’ll have to take pictures of everything and share!
