How Big is Baby?
Well, according to Thebump.com, baby is still as big as a papaya and nothing new to report until week 25. But, according to babycenter.com,
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn’t much more than an average rutabaga, but she’s beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she’ll start to look more and more like a newborn. She’s also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you’d now be able to discern its color and texture.
How I’m Feeling Physically
Physically I’m feeling the same as last week. My energy is lowering a bit, but I still feel like myself and am able to get lots done during the day. My back pain is still an everyday occurrence and it is getting so annoying! Only 15 weeks to go until it stops. I’m confused as to why I get back pain since I have a really strong lower back and core. Oh-well, if back pain is what I need to put up with, then so be it! Luckily Keith has been rubbing my back before I get out of bed in the morning, when the pain is the worst. Only one other new development happened this week and that is I have been getting nauseas the past few afternoons. Both days the nausea has come on around 3:30pm and I’ve felt so sick I’ve had to lay down. Yesterday had my running to the toilet multiple times, but luckily I was able to hold everything together. I’m curious to see if I feel the same way again today (day three in a row). After about an hour and a half, two hours, I feel fine again. It is very strange and reminds me a lot of morning sickness from first trimester.
How I’m Feeling Emotionally
Emotionally things are slowly starting to sink in. I know I’m pregnant and can feel the baby moving inside me, but it still hasn’t sunk in fully that in a little over three months, we will have a baby at home. I don’t know when it will hit me, but we have so much to get done before the baby arrives. Since we are not having a baby shower, Keith and I have a lot of shopping to do. I think we are planning on getting as much done as we can in November since we will have family in town twice in December and just want to enjoy the holiday season without stressing over things we need to buy or get done around the house. Also, our busiest month at work is January ,of course, so the more prepared we are ahead of time, the less stressed I’m going to feel. I’m just so excited to order the nursery furniture and get Baby Cameryn’s room all set up! It is going to be so cute and perfect for her and I know I will feel more organized once everything has arrived!
