Well the baby is now ten and a half inches long, which according to my handy resources is the size of a carrot...although I don't know anybody except my friend Arielle who still buys the big carrots rather than the baby carrots (And the baby is a hell of a lot bigger than a baby carrot these days!) so I am not sure how much good that does you. Still, I assume you can picture a real carrot, so that will do. I am not sure why my first reaction was that NOBODY knows what that looks like...I am an idiot. Back to the baby...it also said the baby weights around twelve ounces! That is 3/4 a pound! He or she is now sucking his/her thumb and totally practicing blinking. Good to know. It also said to start watching for movement on my stomach (and to take a bath and it will be all Jurassic Park like...), which I am excited to actually see, but also a little creeped out by...we will see how it goes.
Not to sound like I always sound, but I feel pretty great! I am peeing a lot, but I assume that is pretty normal. I am sleeping really well now that I have the pillow deal worked out and am all around a pretty happy pregnant person. I have yet to have someone actually comment on me being pregnant (like a stranger...) but I did get a look at Target the other day that was like, " Is she?? No...I am not going to ask..." and yet she kept looking at my belly. I must have really puzzled her, but if I wasn't pregnant it would have REALLY freaked me out...
Anyway...to the belly pics!
