I'm sure that someone is waiting for updates and "bump pictures." I was pretty anxious to put up any updates until after our Anatomy Scan. We had a great appointment on Monday morning. I was a little anxious about it because Steve found out at the last minute that he would have to work. He had a volunteer group showing up at YWCA that he had to assist. My amazingly wonderful mom went with me though, so I didn't have to go alone. Steve has been to every pregnancy related appointment of mine except for one, so I'm sad that he had to miss this one. I had my mom video the whole appointment on my phone so Steve could feel like he was there. I have tons of pictures too.
I know that I am so incredibly blessed.
How big is baby?:
Your baby's the size of a Papaya!
During month five, the average fetus measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces.
- Now that he's got more developed eyes and lips, he's looking even more like a newborn.
- He's sleeping in cycles -- about 12 to 14 hours per day (hint: they're probably those times you're not feeling any kicks!).
Any appointments or updates this week?: Just the Anatomy Scan. This is the appointment when we could find out the gender, but Steve wants to be surprised. So for now, we are Team Green.
Maternity clothes?: I have been wearing stretchy and maternity pants since about week 10 or 11. I did get really comfy maternity shirts at a garage sale two weeks ago for 50 cents each. Score! I love dresses the most right now because they are just comfy.
Best moment last week?: This week has been a roller coaster of emotions. I started feeling more consistent flutters this week. It's a pretty cool feeling.
What I'm looking forward to?: Holding my perfect baby. The answer to this question will probably be pretty consistent.
