Size: Baby weighs in at a pound!! Baby is 11 – 12 inches long.
Next time you pick up your bag of coffee at the grocery store think about Baby. Aa 1 lb. bag of coffee is how much Baby weighs now.
Baby changes: Baby is getting taste buds this week!! Crazy, right?! Baby is also developing it’s sense of touch. Though it’s eyes are still fused shut Baby can perceive light and dark now. Baby’s hearing is also getting better.
Best Moment this past week: Our friends Jennifer and Cayman found out they are having a….GIRL! :) Since we aren’t finding out it was exciting to vicariously celebrate through them. LOL! I can’t wait to find out what all my other pregnant friends are having too! So fun! Also, last weekend we went to my brother-in-law’s graduation. He is now DR. CHRISTOPHER ALAN MORROW! Congrats Brother Chris! We also went to register this past weekend which was fun. There is SO much baby stuff out there!!
Food Craving: Nothing really ever sounds good. Then, I let myself get so hungry that I get sick to my stomach. This is very gross I know, and my husband reminds me of that fact all the time, but Taco Bell is the only thing that sounds good to me lately.
Haha!! Gross...but it's what satisfies at the moment. :)What I miss: Nothing…
Sleep: Still pretty much the same…up once or twice a night to relieve my bladder. Fun times!!
What I am looking forward to: Well, we get another ultra sound in 4 weeks. Doc said not to worry, so I'm not. Apparently the way the baby was positioned at the first ultrasound they didn't get good images as they would've liked of the heart and the face. So, my favorite part is the ultrasounds because I can "see" my baby so I am looking forward to seeing how much it's changed since 18 weeks. I will be 26 weeks at the next appointment and 8 weeks is surely enough time for a bunch of change!
Symptoms: Nothing much
