11 weeks left- give or take!
Size of baby: Baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. Her muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and her head is growing bigger to make room for her developing brain. This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in baby's hardening skeleton each day.
Sleep: I've given up on sleep...
Movement: She's busy in there, that's for sure! Sometimes when I wake up in the morning she's all curled up on one side making my belly lopsided. Steve thinks it means she'll be a cuddler :) When she kicks it makes my whole stomach jump and I've started feeling her roll around more.
Symptoms: Unfortunately the swelling is back and I feel all around huge....but no one ever said pregnancy was easy right?
Best moment of the week: Our baby shower! It was so much fun and I loved seeing everyone. We also chose her Godparents, I'll write more about that another day.
What I am looking forward to: Starting our baby classes this weekend and more baby room projects! Steve's parents gave us his great grandfather's dresser and we are planning to paint it white and use it in the baby's room- I can't wait to see how it turns out. If anyone has any advice for painting furniture- let me know!!
