DH and I have finally decided on our baby furniture for the nursery! Since my Mom got us a changing table for free from a friend, we have been looking for something to match. The changing table came from Target, but that particular set had been discontinued. However, we found another set that will go perfectly with it, and the price is unbelieveable. Here is a picture of the crib and dresser (the changing table is no longer online):
Oh I just love it! We are going to wait to order the set for about another month, once we are into the new house.
So how is Baby Lovie doing?
This week, baby is the size of a large lemon, about 3 1/2 inches!
Baby lovie is now able to wiggle his/her toes and suck on a tiny little thumb! Baby is also producing urine and breathing amniotic fluid. The liver, spleen, and kidneys are still developing. Lanugo (the thin, downy hair) is now covering all of baby to keep him or her warm, though this will slowly disappear before birth. Baby can now squint, frown, and maybe smile a tiny bit as facial muscles develop. Finally, Baby Lovie is punching and kicking a lot, but I won't be able to feel those kicks for several more weeks.
And how am I doing? Feeling pretty good! I am definitely not as tired as I was, though there are still many days I need a long nap. But at least DH doesn't have to do all of the cleaning, laundry, and cooking (bless his heart) now! I can definitely feel my body changing also. I don't think I feel baby moving yet, but I sure do feel my hips stretching, thanks to the continuous cramping in my back. DH has give me LOTS of back rubs lately. I don't know WHAT I'd do without him!
No new cravings right now. Still ice-cold Coca-Cola, yuuummm. But thanks to the recommendation of a great friend, I've been drinking only caffeine-free Coke now! Still love the burgers too. Other than that, I've been eating about the same as before.
Finally, we had an awesome time on our camping trip! I will do another blog post about it soon. Hope everyone is doing well! God bless. +
