We are just one week short of the half way marker!!! Hip HIP HOOOORAAAAY! This week one of the blogs I read said, “baby is about 6 inches so about the size of an heirloom tomato” UMMMMM I have no idea what farm or grocery store they are getting their tomatoes from cause I have just never seen a tomater that size!! Where the heck do they get this stuff!!??? If I saw a tomato that size I would rush that thing to a county fair or something cause I’m pretty sure that would win the big blue ribbon and maybe even a cash prize to boot! Another blog I read described baby as the size of a mango covered in cheese… quite honestly that description made me throw up a little in my mouth lol. But, most just describe baby as the size of a mango… and I love mangos…. So I am good with that… sans the cheese of course! Mmmm… mango… sounds yummy.
Sorry…. Back to the blog! Baby is developing like crazy the brain is doing some really smart stuff that I would sound silly describing. But, when I read about it, it sounds pretty radical. Baby also has some sort of wax coating now to keep its skin from getting all “prune-like” in the amniotic fluid. Which is neat and all… but kinda strange in the mental picture my brain has created. Of course I am pretty darn sure I wouldn’t want my lil’ one poppin’ out lookin’ like a raisin so I suppose I am super thankful for this waxy coating stuff!!!
Still no feeling of the kicks for me!!! Boooooo… ah well I guess everyone is different huh? One blog I read said you may even be able to feel baby’s kicks from outside the belly at this point… not me friends… not me… I still feel nothing close to what they describe I will feel. What I do feel is wonderful shooting pains randomly in the lower abdomen which made me wonder if my baby is a friggin’ ninja master and that’s what I was feeling… but no, apparently those sharp shooting pains are my ligaments stretching… nice.
I also feel pretty dizzy here and there but nothing that has caused any sorts of havoc or anything. And I am ALWAYS ALWAYS OUT OF BREATH!!! Like, I am sporadically gasping for air when I am just sitting down!! Just kickin’ it there on the couch and all of a sudden I feel like I rand a marathon!!! It really is bazaar.
OHHHHHH and I think IT’S HAPPENING FRIIIDAAAAYYYY!!! 7AM BABY.... WE ARE GOING TO FIND OUT THE SEX OF OUR LIL’ MANGO!!! I am not exactly sure but if it is tomorrow… I AM PUMPED!!! WAHOOOOOOOOO WAAA WAAAAA HOOOOOOOO!!!!
