Due date: November 28 (according to my midwife) or November 26 (according to the date of my last period).
Symptoms: Pretty much the same as it has been since 5 weeks... Nauseous, tired, eczema rashes and acne.
Feeling: I'm a little disappointed that I'm not feeling better since I hit the second trimester, but I'm ok with it if I'm sick this entire pregnancy, as long as the baby is healthy.
Cravings: Bland food.
Sleep: I sleep a LOT. Every spare second I can, I rest.
Health: Pretty good, my iron is a little low.
Exercise: No. :(
Labor signs: Nope!
Wedding rings: Only my engagement ring fits.
Looking forward to: Ultrasound soon, I'm hoping they can tell the gender!!
Missing: Coffee, having energy, not being nauseous...
Weight gain: Like 20 pounds. :(
Movement: Small movements sometimes, usually at bedtime. :)
Stretchmarks: I think I'm starting to get some. D=
Gender: Hopefully finding out very soon!
BabyCenter update: Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")
Other stuff: I'm amazed at how much I love this baby already. I just wish I could stop worrying that everything will be ok and he or she will be born healthy!
