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!
