(Belly seems less impressive than last week, but this is a bit more realistic :))
Also for fun, here's 10 weeks versus 20 weeks! I'm even wearing the same shirt :).
Ed and I just got back from San Diego, where we spend a lovely weekend. Ed was working for most of it, but we were still able to carve some time out for visiting Balboa Park, having some wonderful food, and spending some time outdoors.
Size of the Baby? Another half inch, another two ounces!
Eating? Still doing pretty well (or maybe too well!) so I think I can feel safe saying the morning sickness is gone :). I woke up a few time incredibly hungry but otherwise I think I just need to be careful about not eating too much unhealthy foods. We're finally done with the Thanksgiving leftovers (and tossing what we couldn't get through), and are going to make a better effort to have at least a couple of healthy weeks before the next holiday. So thankful that most foods are now agreeing with me, though!
Exercise: Umm...yeah. I sort of failed this week. In my defense, it was a super busy week, and I also started dealing with some fairly debilitating sciatic pain in my good leg, of all places. I'm very glad that I had an active weekend, to make up for the lackluster week, and am going to work hard to hit all my workouts this week.
Best Moment? Getting to take a nap on a weekday! It was sublime :)
Mommy Update: I've been a bit more tired this week, but am very thankful that I got the opportunity to take it a little easier with work. I did have a few baby related nightmares this week, probably just feeling anxious about our baby's health as we go into our scan. Had a great conversation with my big sister about all things pregnancy/baby related, which was lovely. Even better, she's letting us borrow some baby gear! My parents brought us one item - the swing - when we met them for lunch this morning, and I already got it mostly set up. It's so special, especially since I have so many lovely memories of tucking Amelia into it when she was little. I'm sure our little baby will love it, too!
(Little baby Amelia, our almost 3 year old niece, when she was brand new :) )
Baby Update: Baby is working on developing taste buds, gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid a day, and can now be measured from heel to head, instead of head to rump, since it can straighten out now. Bones continue to toughen up, and body parts are finally proportional!
Can't believe that at next week's update, I can finally use our baby's name and correct pronoun. Fingers crossed for a healthy and cooperative baby!
