Oliver's Size: Half of a foot long and 8.5 ounces approximately. It is crazy to think that in 20 more weeks he can grow 6-8 POUNDS!! The Bump compares him to the size of a Mango while Ovia wants him to be a "Zesty Zucchini".
Weight Gain: -2. Slow and steady. I am hoping to reach my pre-pregnancy weight today. I want to specify that I am by no means trying to have anyone feel bad for me being under weight when I know that many women struggle with gaining too much weight. I just want to be healthy and for the baby to be healthy no matter what.
Movement: Tons! I haven't started counting yet, but every time I lay down I can feel him. Occasionally when I am sitting I can feel him as well but not as strongly.
How I'm Feeling: Much Better. I tried to go off of the Diclegis Medicine that I was taking, but I am now aware that that won't be an option! As long as I am on the medicine, my nausea is at bay and I am having much more energy!
Sleep: Sleep is getting a tad less comfortable. I wake up 3 or 4 times in the night to readjust. I am going to start using a body pillow to see if that helps.
Cravings: Pink Lemonade, Cream Cheese, and Lucky Charms... not all together.
Aversions: Still Meat and all savory spices.
Workouts: I am on a much more regular workout schedule now! However, I attacked the inner thigh machine a bit too rigorously the other day and can barely move I'm so sore!!
Maternity Clothes: My family blessed me with a ton of maternity clothes this Christmas! I am probably set for life! I particularly like these skinny jeans from Burlington Coat Factory from my brother and this shirt from Target that my In-Laws bought me!
I have also been looking for some non-maternity clothes that will work both during and after pregnancy. I was given the ability to pick out a shirt from eShakti.com in which I could personalize the fit of the shirt to my body type! I got to pick the length of the sleeves, the length of the hem, and other unique features. Here was the result of the shirt that I picked! I love the long hemline and the belt that will give me a waistline far into my pregnancy. If you have trouble finding good clothes that fit well, make sure to check them out.
