Size: an eggplant
What baby is up to: She's practicing inhaling and exhaling with her rapidly developing lungs. It's official: Baby's showing brain activity! And her brain will keep on getting more complex. She's grown to be at least 15 inches in length. She is weighing just over 2 pounds. She has more taste buds now than she will have at birth, or ever for that matter. Which means she can taste the difference in the amniotic fluid when I eat different foods and she may also react to it. She might respond to spicy foods by hiccupping or kicking when they get that spicy kick. As this week has gone by I have still been feeling really good, except for the cold I had at the beginning of the week. My kids at school have been coughing and sneezing all over the place. Needless to say we have used lots of hand washing, hand sanitzer, and lysol wipes in the classroom. I have had some issuses of sleeping through the night and finding a comfortable way of sitting or laying around to watch TV. Josh has been really supportive and helpful to try and help me get comfortable. He sometimes gives in to my cravings for foods that I should not be eating and is willing to go pick something up for me. I am getting excited for my upcoming baby showers that my friends and family are throwing for me in the next couple of weeks!
