  • Very Emotional

Pregnancy first this week: I cry at anything and everything and half the time I don't know why. Its very frustrating.

My Pregnancy Brain: Its starting to feel more real on a daily basis especially during the move because they didn't let me do anything and I kept directing them to the babies room :)


Pregnancy Prep: Nothing this week.

Dr Visits: One this week to follow up on my back. It was a complete waste of time, all she did is walk in and say sorry there is nothing we can do. No Shit! I knew that already!

It's a....wait for it.....GIRL!!!!

Waist Measurements: 34.5" at the belly button

Weigh in: 125lbs according to the Dr.

Pregnancy Symptoms this Week:
  • Forgetfulness
  • Moody
  • Emotional
  • Back pain
Pregnancy first this week: Excruciating back pain, don't know what happened but it sent me to the ER, they checked the baby to make sure it wasn't preterm labor and once they cleared the baby they sent me on my ways...guess its no longer about me huh. They blamed it on the pregnancy so all I can do is rest my back.

My Pregnancy Brain: It was an interesting week. The level of fear i had when i called the on call nurse and they told me to go into the ER to make sure the baby was ok was intense. I guess its just a taste of things to come.

Pregnancy Prep: I went to a boutique in Fullerton that sells cloth diaper and got to play around with them.

Dr Visits: I had two this week. A planned one and an impromptu one last night.

Belly Shot: None this week. I cant stand long enough to have my picture taken. :(

What the baby looks like this week: she is a little over four inches long and weighs a little over 2.5 ounces. Has fingernails and toenails, and there's a lot happening inside as well. Her heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as she continues develop.

Waterworks, tomatoes and annoying lights!

Waist Measurements: 34.5" at belly button

Weigh in: 122lbs according to the Dr.

Pregnancy Symptoms this Week:
  • Forgetfulness
  • Moody
  • Emotional
Pregnancy first this week: I'm really losing my mind! I was on the verge of tears this week because we ran out of Doritos at work and I Needed some for my sandwich. I think I cried a total of 3 times this week for no good reason...

My Pregnancy Brain: I've been too preoccupied trying to get escrow to close so I can start decorating the room :)

Pregnancy Prep:
I'm researching the idea of cloth diapering and so far I'm all for it and Paul like the idea too. I want to buy one soon so I can start playing around with it.

Dr Visits: I thought I was getting a UTI so I played it safe and went in; everything was good, no signs of infections and I got to hear the heart beat. Life is good.

Belly Shot:


What the baby looks like this week: Is as big as a beefsteak tomato! Measures about 4 Inches and weights about 2 1/2 ounces. S/he has started "breathing" amniotic fluid in through its nose and respiratory tract, giving those lungs some very early practice for the real thing. Can sense light and pressure from outside of the womb, yet another way to start annoying our child, and lastly the legs are growing longer than the arms now, and can move all joints and limbs.

I'm losing my mind!

Waist Measurements: 35" at belly button

Weigh In: 120lbs according to the wii

Pregnancy Symptoms this:
  • Head Ache (ouch)
  • Forgetfulness
  • Moody
  • Appetite for carbs
Pregnancy first this week: I'm losing my mind! This week I wore two watches at once one day and then another day I talked to Paul on the phone and then scolded him the next day for not calling, granted it was midnight when he called and I was sleeping, but still. Oh yeah someone touched my belly for the first time this week. Lucky it wasn't a complete stranger so I didn't feel the urge to punch them in the face. I feel bad for the first stranger who things it's ok for them to touch me, they are in for a rude awakening.

My Pregnancy Brain: Its really nice to be able to hear the heart beat whenever I want. I can't wait till we find out gender, it really helps re assure that I'm really pregnant and not just growing a gut. Also this week I've had a few nightmares where I'm 7ish months pregnant and I get into a car accident. Its weird, now I'm no longer worried about my safety but the life that I'm carrying. I might just be cut out to be a mother! :0)

Pregnancy Prep: Nothing

Dr Visits: Nope

Belly Shot:
What the baby looks like this week: Is about the size of a peach. From head to bottom measure about 3 1/2 inches. Has a strong, whoosh-whooshy heartbeat See below :). Our baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb! The kidneys are producing urine, which s/he releases into the amniotic fluid around him. The liver starts making bile this week and the spleen starts helping in the production of red blood cells.

Pregnancy first this week: The whole not pooping thing is new :( I don't like it at all. Oh yeah so this week I tried a new pack of the sample vitamins my dr. gave me and oh boy did I regret it. It had some sort of fish oil or something...any who 2 min after I took the vitamin I could not stop burping and everytime I burped it tasted like rotten fish therefor making me gag. I spent the next 30 min trying to find something to eat that would cover up the fish...Not an easy task.
