It has thankfully been a MUCH quieter week so far:) Hunter is moving like crazy-definitely moves alot right before meal time and ALOT at night. Lil party animal!!! I can't believe we are almost halfway there-may actually be halfway there depending on when Mr. Man shows up:) I got SUPER lucky and found a lady on Craigslist that is having a baby girl next week and had two baby boys in the wintertime sooooo we are gonna swap clothes-Bella's baby clothes (perfect for her having a girl in the summer like Bella was) for her boy baby clothes (perfect for us having a boy in the winter)! Doesn't get much better than that! I'm still going to save Bella's really nice stuff to put in the Rhea Lana's Consignment sale in September.
WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH YOU
To your dismay, you may find that heartburn is more likely to occur as your uterus pushes up against your stomach. Because the movement of food through the digestive tract has slowed, nutrients reach the fetus more efficiently -- generally within one or two hours after meals. Hang in there. When your baby "drops," (first-time moms only), usually in the final month of pregnancy, there will be considerably less pressure on your stomach. Eating several smaller meals throughout the day can work well if you are troubled by heartburn. Try not to eat right before bed. Sleep with your upper body slightly elevated. Antacids that contain calcium will provide heartburn relief, as well as this essential nutrient. Be sure to check with your care provider before taking medications such as Pepcid AC or Zantac.
Yeah soooo red beans and rice for dinner tonight-NOT a good idea for a preggo with heartburn:)
WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH YOUR BABY
At 15 centimeters crown to rump, and weighing eight ounces, your baby is getting big! This week, permanent teeth buds are forming behind the milk teeth buds. Organs of reproduction are developing rapidly, getting ready to sustain future generations. The uterus is clearly visible in the female and the testes are apparent in the male fetus. If your baby is positioned just right on an ultrasound scan, the tiny penis is easily identifiable. So, if you don't wish to know the gender of your baby, ask the technician to alert you before your baby's lower body comes into view.
