Size: Baby Sunshine is about the size of a large jicama, weighing in at 3.75 pounds and is almost 17 inches long.
Total Weight Gain: Thirty-one pounds (up one pound from my weight with Sophia).
Maternity Clothes: Yes. Just wishing I had a little more variety in my winter clothes. Most of my sweaters don't fit around the bump and are a bit too short...only eight weeks left to make due.
Gender: Surprise! We find out in February.
Cravings: Chocolate and salty foods.
Symptoms: Lots of vein discomfort, shortness of breath, a belly button that is flattening out, and little patience.
Movement: Yes and I can tell it is getting much harder to move around in there since things seem to be much more pronounced.
Sleep: Pretty good this week. I am still waking frequently, but I am able to fall back to sleep quickly.
Moment of the Week: Lots of good moments this week, but nothing pregnancy related stands out. I am loving seeing Christmas festivities through the eyes of a toddler.
What I Miss: Alcohol. Enough said.
What I'm Looking Forward to: Our doctor's appointment on Monday. Can't wait to hear that sweet little heartbeat.
Big Sister: Sophia has been using my belly as a pillow and constantly wanting to feeling Baby Sunshine bump around. This week found her offering to hold Baby Sunshine frequently so that I could run with her and crawl around on the floor with her.
Looking Back: Sophia had hiccups frequently while I was pregnant, this little one has only had them a few times, but I love when they happen. The thing that stood out to me the most from our last pregnancy was just having Dave around to help tackle projects. Maybe after the holiday festivities I will have him around a bit more.
