This week the baby is between 4-5 inches long. The back muscles are gaining strength and this means baby can straighten out their neck and head. Baby can also make facial expressions and the eyes are making small movements under the eyelids.
This week has been a little quieter on the symptom front which is actually lovely. I'm still on my sickness tablets and still feeling nauseous in the evening but feel ok during the day, most of the time! I've also started getting heartburn in the evenings which doesn't help with the nausea but oh well. My belly button is starting to pop at the top. It's nearly always flat with my belly now. My skin is still up and down. Sleep is still up and down too.
Some big news this week is that we had a gender scan. If you haven't seen my reveal then baby is a girl!!!!! I thought from the beginning that baby was a girl, I just had such a strong girl feeling. I feel like I'm carrying high compared to Parker's bump too, just like with Paige. I'm really hoping that baby is still a girl at our 20 week scan in a few weeks :p and I can't wait to see her again.
Bump is really popping out now although maternity are still far too big for me. I can also still hide bump away if I want to trick people, haha. Still feeling loads of movement and can't wait for baby to get stronger so that Mark can feel her.
Waist - 28 inch. Around my belly button is 31 inch.
Weight - My scales ran out of battery!!
