How Big are the Babies?
My sources say the babies are as big as apples this week, measuring about 4 inches and weighing 2 1/2 ounces.
How I’m Changing
I’m definitely showing now!
I think the energy and joy that is rumored to come with the second trimester also has arrived. I generally feel pretty good, save for a few growing pains here and there and a little trouble getting comfortable in bed. I feel motivated to work out, to compile our registry and to prepare for our babies.
What I’m Eating
Just like last week, my regular appetite seems to have returned.
I’m eating pretty regular stuff, just trying to eat balanced meals and snacks and enough food throughout the day.
What I’m Thinking
I’m excited to start “nesting” – shopping for baby stuff, painting a nursery, preparing the house for our new life as a four-some.
We toured several houses last weekend and found one we really like – so much we put an offer on it a few days later! We are really excited about it and are praying the process goes smoothly, so we can move in sometime yet this spring…
