Baby Size: An avocado. 4.5 inches long and 3.5 ounces. Baby Mac is looking more and more human and less alien these days. The eyes and ears are moving into their final positions, the head is more erect, and major growth spurts are going on. The baby’s heart is pumping more and more blood and has tiny toenails.

Weight gain: 4 pounds and a whole lot of bloat. 

Maternity clothes: Purchased a few other fun spring dresses. It’s SO hard finding cute maternity wear. So far I’ve been having the most luck at Gap and PinkBlush. Oh and I also scored my diaper bag this week, Kate Spade clearance. 

Best moment this week: We made a big decision this past week. We are staying at our current rental until after baby is born. This has been a HUGE stress for us, deciding what to do and whether or not to pay the penalty to move out early. But now the decision has been made and it’s a huge weight off my shoulders. So, we began to clean out our spare bedroom, getting it ready for baby!

Looking forward to: Finding out the sex in two weeks! Feeling baby Mac move. 

Food cravings: All the Easter treats.  Chips and Cheese. Smoothies. Fruit. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Feeling so much better these days! I’m down to one pill a day for my nausea. 

Mood: Started to feel a little overwhelmed this week. So much change and so much to do. I begin to have mini panic attacks that I won’t be a good mom, or I’ll be a lazy mom, or won’t be ready. I’d like to blame this on the hormones but also believe this is a normal stage for all new moms.

Symptoms: Pelvic girdle pain. Trouble sleeping because of said pain. 

Loving: Dreaming up the nursery, and counting down til we know if we’re having a little mr. or miss!
