Size of Oliver: Last week we had out mid-anatomy ultrasound and Oliver was 15 ounces (about 1lb)! Everything looked healthy and all major organs were present. My apps put him at about the size of a Papaya or Grapefruit.
Weight Gain: 3 pounds. It feels like a TON more.
Movement: I have felt Oliver a little bit less this week but I attribute that to being on my feet a lot more than normal. I feel him the best when I'm laying or sitting down. That has not happened much this last week.
Pregnancy Symptoms: My leg cramps are better but my back has been killing me. Sometimes I can't find any position to ease my back pain. Laying down is usually my best option. I also have hardly ANY belly button left! Other than those two things, everything else is pretty normal. My nausea is finally under control with my Diclegis pills!
Sleep: I am sleeping a lot but I am still pretty tired. I get 9 hours of sleep and feel exhausted in the morning!
Craving: Rice Crispy Treats, Pears, Burger King Whopper... Dom and Eric made a rookie mistake and got Burger King without getting me any... now I can't stop thinking about Whoppers!
Aversions: Nothing Really. I still am not eating much meat.
Workouts: I have started upping the intensity of my workouts and it feels so good! I am working out 4 times a week. I am having a hard time working up a sweat, but I am sore the next day which makes me happy! Being sore makes me know that I did some good work on my muscles.
Maternity Clothes: I haven't purchased any new maternity clothes in the past 2 weeks, but, like I stated in my mid-maternity must have list, I have started using an empire waisted belt to make some new outfits.
Baby Items: The most exciting baby purchase this week was by my parents!! They bought us a glider and ottoman for the nursery! Dom won't let me open it though :( There is a good chance that we are going to be moving from this house before the baby is born and Dom doesn't want to put the glider together just to have to pack it up in a moving van! I hate looking at boxes and not getting to play with my toys!
I have also been slowly stocking up on some wipes and diapers. The other day I organized all of our baby gear to see what we have.
Here are some other baby boy clothing items I have had my eye on. If you click on the picture, it will take you to the site for each product.
