I missed last week’s regularly scheduled Bump Report, since I was traveling, but all the technical mumbo jumbo was fairly basic / ordinary and I decided to just take a week off. Let’s take a look at said technical mumbo jumbo for this week…
By this week according to babycenter.com, Baby Blueberry weighs about 2.25 pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures about 14.8 inches long. She can blink her eyes, which now sport [hopefully long and luxurious] lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through my womb. She’s also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.
I’m now in the third trimester of my pregnancy and if I were like most women I’d likely gain 11 pounds this trimester. According to Wii Fit I’m actually down a pound from my lowest pregnancy weight, but that could be different by tomorrow so I’m unconcerned. I seem to be bouncing back and forth between the same four or five pounds still. I can tell you that I feel humongous belly wise, but I’m sure I’ll get bigger still before this is all over.
If I were not possibly in the middle of moving I’d also be planning to see my doctor every 2 weeks or so after my next appointment which is tentatively scheduled for May 20 if I’m still in the state. If I am but I’m moving, I’m planning to get a copy of my medical records at that appointment and also get MM’s medical records from his pediatrician, not that they are in the same place, but you know, yeah. This month should be a fun mixture of being hugely pregnant and trying to figure out where we are moving and when, where I’m delivering the baby and when, and who our doctors will be when this is all said and done. Fun. Or something.
