- Girl (64%, 16 Votes)
- Boy (36%, 9 Votes)
Total Voters: 25
Baby Size: A white onion. Baby Mac weighs around 5 ounces and is 5 inches long. The skeleton is forming and the baby is still moving up a storm inside it’s home. Doing flips and somersaults, even though I’ve yet to feel it.
Weight gain: A big jump this week! Up to 6 pounds.
Maternity clothes: Yep.
Best moment this week: Feeling energetic enough to tailgate and attend a Phillies game! However I’m still so tired most of the time. Where is this elusive energy that is supposed to come with the second trimester?
Looking forward to: Finding out the sex of course! It’s all I can think about!
Food cravings: Fruit, Pizza, Pirate’s Booty!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Feeling pretty good! However, there are a few things I cannot STAND to smell, simply because I associate them from when I was really sick. Like fireplace smoke (just makes me think of being sick in our cabin rental in January) and a certain face moisturizer. Weird, right?!
Mood: Feeling happy but still anxious. We’ve been working hard on de-cluttering and simplifying for baby, but I just feel like there is so much to do.
Symptoms: Pelvic girdle pain. It’s so terrible that I now can’t walk without a limp. I’m seeing a chiropractor tomorrow.
Loving: The anticipation leading up to finding out the sex on Saturday!
