The good thing about this hold up is that we have the NT Scan this Friday, so now we'll have a full update on how Lil G is doing when we announce, along with a nice new picture.
In general pregnancy news, I'm starting to feel pretty good. The morning sickness has subsided dramatically, and while it still shows up here and there, it's much more bearable. In fact, I'm now on day five of eating three full meals a day. That's a big step, believe it or not. :)
I'm also starting to get little pains and twinges in my abdomen. Some are sudden and sharp -- like when I sneeze -- while others are duller and hang around for the evening. The Co-Master of Google, my darling husband, has apparently done all the research that needs doing and has deemed this all totally normal due to my uterus growing, and since the baby books confirmed, I let him have the glory.
Lil G is now the size of a lime -- for some reason that seems like a big deal. Poppyseeds and peas are cute and all, but a lime, that's something you can hold in your hand. It's substantial. It's a baby!
And baby is starting to take up more room with its growing self. Behold, the first belly pics I am releasing to the world. I still think it's a little early for this as I look like I just ate an odd shaped cheeseburger, but I have been getting requests and I think it will serve as a good measuring stick for down the road when the real bump comes in. Enjoy!
