The baby is around the size of an apple this week and is practicing breathing with the amniotic fluid. Although bubba's eyes are fused shut he/she can now sense light if for example a torch in placed over my belly.
This week started off with a lovely stuffy nose. I don't think its so much a cold just a pregnancy stuffy nose kind of thing. I've also had a lot of headaches this week. I'm not really sure why. I'm thinking that maybe I've decreased my water intake without realizing so I'm going to up it and see if that helps.
Food and sickness wise I wasn't sick at all this week. It feels like such a big achievement to go a whole week without getting sick. I've still felt sick the odd time but overall we are getting there. The sickness actually calmed off around the same time with Paige. I'm not really feeling meals this week. Nothing sounds good and I'm not enjoying the foods that I do eat. I have enjoyed fruit salads and I craved cake which I am eating as I write this and it is yummy!!
When I wake up in the morning I can tell exactly where the baby is. He/she must ball themselves up during the night and in the morning my belly pokes out. Its so cute. I'm still feeling the baby move and still excited to feel proper kicks from the outside. I think this happened around 21 weeks with Paige.
I do think my belly is starting to pop properly now. I failed at getting a good bump shot this week where I was positioned properly so I've added an extra picture where you can properly see bump from the side :) This may be my favourite picture to date! This may be my last pregnancy so I'm trying to soak it all in now that I'm starting to feel normal.
