How your baby’s growing:
Your baby’s about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds. A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it’s not very keen; even after she’s born, she’ll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she’ll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)
so having nightly heartburn isn’t a new thing, but having heartburn so bad that the meds dont fix it is. soo that means i either dont fall asleep until like 2am, or i fall asleep sitting up. went to the doc yesterday, glucose test passed and iron count was fine, so my exhaustion is normal and not a result of anemia. i’ve really hit the too big to move phase full on and getting up and down off things is difficult. mom, paul, lucas, and i did peekabelly on saturday, so below are pix of miss arianna! i’ll still have one more regular ultrasound in the coming month. i finally got some over-the-belly maternity jeans at kohls today. braxton hicks contractions seem to have decreased, but i guess she is getting too big for her house because her kicking has become stronger, of the uncomfortable variety as she attempts to rearrange my organs from the inside. overall, though, i still feel like this pregnancy has been easier than the last one. i don’t know if it is because i’ve done it before so i’ve come to expect all the ucky feelings, or if they are just less this time around.
