Baby K: Baby K is the size of an avocado at about 5 inches from bottom to head and weighing about 3.5 ounces. The baby is starting a massive growth spurt and will double in size in the next weeks. Baby K can now hear our voices and even though the eyelids are fused shut can see light. The baby now has finger and toenails and can suck his/her thumb.
Symptoms: Still feeling the cramping, stretching and pains that come with the shifting and growing belly.
Bump: It's arrived. I officially have a real bump that isn't going anywhere and I judge that by the fact that I no longer fit in my jeans - even with a belly band. Didn't stop me from wearing them for these pictures though. They are completely unzipped and only suitable for stationary positions; any movement is not safe. This weekend my mom took me on my first maternity shopping spree and spoiled me with some cute work outfits and a fun summer dress. We weren't able to find a replacement pair of jeans though - the search will continue.
Looking forward to: Feeling the baby's first movements which should be in the next few weeks!
Missing the most: Nothing at the moment.
