Our little one is up to about 1.5 inches or so long and weighs about 0.3 ounces and should be moving around quite a bit, swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. There’s still quite a bit of room in its little bubble so of course I can’t feel anything yet. All the important developments are in place now so now it’s just a matter of maturation and growth. A little apprehension gets replaced by pure excitement every day!
Although I’ve only gained 2-3 pounds so far (on average… let’s just say there are good days and bad days), I’m definitely noticing a difference in the way clothes are fitting. Pants are a given, but now even some shirts are a little suspect. Or maybe I just had a really unfortunate shirt on yesterday (horizontal stripes are always suspect). I don’t really mind so much since it’s all inevitable and I’m staying healthy. I’m still hitting the gym 4-5 times a week and eat nutritiously and in typical portions. Okay, maybe I’m having dessert more regularly and indulge in junk-y snacks after my daily quota of fruits and yogurt, but hey, this is supposed to be fun, right?!?!
