14 more weeks until we meet Baby T.
Baby: Weighs about 1 and 2/3 pounds. And is about 14 inches, the size of an English cucumber. I saw an English cucumber at the store the other day. I have no idea how that is fitting inside my belly. And she is only going to get bigger!
This week baby’s ears are becoming more sensitive. Jerry is convinced of this after last night. He was singing his nightly lullaby to the her and he got a little kick to the face. I love the look on his face when he feels her move
And I’m sure she was just letting him know how much she appreciates his singing!
Her heartbeat sounded strong at my appointment yesterday (the highlight of my week so far).
Me: I have been feeling pretty good. I am getting more frequent heartburn, but I expected that. I take a Pepcid about every other day now.
I have done less walking last week, but I am getting back on track. I also want to look into a prenatal yoga DVD.
Next week I have my glucose screening test to check for gestational diabetes. You basically chug a bottle of super sweet orange drink and then have your blood drawn. I am a little nervous. Obliviously I don’t want gestational diabetes, but I also here that a lot of people fail and then have to take a 3 hour fasting test. Which sounds rather unpleasant.
But I read somewhere that only between 2-5% of pregnant women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes.
That made me feel a little better.
Weight: Officially up 15 pounds.
Next week I will take some pics of the nursery. I am currently agonizing over which chair to order.
And a sneak peak at her closet, which is getting full!
