- cartilidge is turning to bone
- starting to gain some fat too
- umbilical cord is growing thicker and stronger
Seeing as I lost 3lbs from weeks 8 to 12, and then gained 8lbs back from week 12 to 16, I'm technically only up 5lbs. But I'm still looking at that 8lb gain in 4 weeks. Yikes!
Vegetables, finally! I've been eating a salad for lunch all week, and plenty of healthy snacks during the day.
Belly officially sticks out pasts the boobs.
Besides the weight gain.....my boobs are getting bigger by the day. Ugh. Apparently at the end of 2nd trimester, they are ready for breastfeeding. The changes are definitely being felt, I refer to it as "tingly nipples". (I like to text my husband that throughout the day as well.) Baby is moving a lot more, especially at night. Thanks kid! I noticed my pants are a little tighter as well, so I started back at the gym this week. Just walking, light weights, and squats. Lots of squats! Starting to get some inquisitive looks while working out though.
Worst Moment this Week:
Watching that Disney commercial where the dad is talking about his 14 year old daughter loving some boy. I realized that if we are having a girl, she's going to date. I may have had a mini panic attack.
Best Moment this Week:
Hubby coming home yesterday and telling me while driving home, he was thinking how he's going to be a Dad. That made me smile!
Looking Forward To:
Our weekend away! Apparently Mother Nature remembered the last time we went to Nestlenook in February, there was no snow. That should not be the case this weekend!
