Body Changes: I didn’t gain any this week, I actually am starting to think I need to up my caloric intake. It’s been heating up in AZ which makes you naturally want less food and more water. It’s great that I’m constantly wanting to eat healthy food and smaller portions, but I’m realizing baby sometimes has other plans and needs more fat than I do! I’ve had a few queasy mornings before I eat, so I’m thinking it may be time to add some more protein and/or calories in general. I am so not complaining about this!
Note to self: time to clean the chalkboard!
Baby Updates: Either this week or next he should start putting on a little fat. I can’t believe how big he is already and in the next few weeks he’s going to do some serious growing.
Something kind of awesome happened this week. He has been kicking up a storm at night, and I keep trying to see if Jacob can feel it. No such luck, but one night the little guy stretched and kicked so much you could actually see that something was poking up from part of my stomach. He locked his leg like that, so we both got the feel this bump that you could clearly make out as a little foot! It wasn’t like the cheesy Photoshopped footprint or anything, but there was a bump that you could feel, and when I pushed in on it he’d move a little, and then move it right back. We were both smiling, and also a little creeped out because hey, there’s a human on my insides trying to push on my outsides and scenes of Alien may have come to mind. But overall, super cool, and I’m excited Jacob got his first taste of feeling some of the excitement from this little human, and that you could clearly tell he is a little human!
