Back to another baby update!
How I’m Doing
Honestly, I’m alright. The extreme tiredness from the first trimester has pretty much gone, so I’ve got more energy. On the other side, I get random sore muscles. My legs kept being achy when I woke up, until I started using a pillow to support them. It’s also getting more difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep in at night. I also feel more pregnant in general now, if that makes sense. There’s more weight I’m carrying around (obviously, as baby grows), and I’m trying to get used to it. It’s crazy to think that in a few months, I may be waddling around as baby gets even bigger.
How Baby Is
Baby is now the size of an avocado. I held up an avocado to my stomach and it’s funny to think that baby is getting so much bigger each week. Apparently, he/she can now hear me (the bones in the inner ear are forming), so I’m trying to get in the habit to talk to baby. It feels kind of silly at first, but it’s also quite nice to take time out at the end of the day to just chat and think about baby listening. Baby is also now moving around a loooot. I should be able to feel the movements soon which is quite exciting!
I keep meaning to take photos of the bump as it grows, but I’ve been letting it slip. I’m hoping to keep it up for these update posts though!
