Ray took a few photos yesterday that came out really nice! This just gives somewhat of an idea of where my belly is - and I'm only 5 months! Oh my....
I receive an email once a week that says "You're (this many) weeks!" and has info about the baby and other things I might be noticing in my body. Here's what I got this week:
Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long. His eyebrows and eyelids are fully developed. And you can certainly feel him move. He's oblivious to your schedule, though, so don't be surprised if he starts working out just when you're settling down for the night.
Ok, #1: On 7/25, he weighed 1 lb 10 oz. That's twice the size they are talking about. I'm seriously considering restricting my diet! Keep up the calcium and protein and pre-natals, but - I don't know. Eat less somehow? Pushing a 10 lb baby through my stuff sounds, well, it makes me a little nauseated and scared.
#2: He's active all the time. He goes really crazy when I'm watching fight scenes in movies - like Pirates of the Carribean or the Bourne Ultimatum. If you've seen the latter, you know the scene I mean - the long mano y mano with the asset sent to kill him? Wow! What an awesome scene!!
Wee Jack was punchin' and kickin' and rollin' around. I started laughing a little and the people next to me seemed uncomfortable.
That's it on numbers. Almost every week, I'm amazed to learn the ways in which he is developing and this is just on the inside. It's going to be so much more fun when he's outside!!
