Bigger every day!

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!!

Hi Rane, If it makes you feel any better babies don't grow as much the last month. That is supposed to be the fine tuning month I guess! So between 6 months and 8 months, look out mama! I am sure even though you are getting bigger you have to be digging your belly. It is sort of like noticing your boobs during puberty. They start off as kind of strange (possibly unwanted), but then you become rather facinating with them. The funny thing is I actually miss my round little buddah belly.
Love to all of you!

Hi Rob! Great to hear from you! I switched computers since we were in touch so I'll have to dig around for your address. If you have mine, I'd be thrilled to hear from you! I've been thinking, it is way past time to write to Rob.

yes, I'm a breeder!

and Cynde - that does make me feel better. Wow, it's amazing! I love the belly - that's why I don't like it when people tell me, oh you're a tiny thing!

I am not... I'm huge!! I'm PREGNANT so I must be HUGE! Respect the HUGE. I'm proud of it. But it is still really freaky!
