No picture this week. :(
This week our little one is over 3lbs now and around 18inches long give or take a little. (I was 18inches at birth). Our baby will still gain about 3-5 more pounds, though I hope only about 3 more pounds and is just about at his/her birth length. This week our baby's brain connections are developing and our baby is already processing information, tracking light and perceiving signals from all 5 senses. Amazing! The books say our baby is sleeping more and developing more definitive sleep and awake (kicking) patterns, though I have yet to really notice this.
I am still feeling great, though starting to feel huge. My mom measured my belly today and it was 39.5 inches around. Some people say I look big, others think I look small. Some say I am carrying low. Seems everyone has a comment and wants details about our baby, even strangers on the street! It's the weirdest thing. This is probably the weirdest thing about pregnancy I have noticed yet - the conversations random people/strangers start just 'cause I am pregnant.
Only 2 months to go!!!
