As you can see baby B is getting big!! (note the new floors, lol!! AND it's the same shirt as last time)
This week was when I REALLY started to feel pregnant. My feet are starting to swell but the past few days it's gotten better since it's not so hot here (aka=hell-like temperatures) I have also developed something called pregnancy induced carpel tunnel. Fun. If there is a pregnancy induced thing seems like I'm lucky enough to get it. Morning sickness? Check! Swelling? Check! I found this out because my hands (only when I am sleeping) go completely numb. I mean so numb I could probably bite off my finger and not feel it! My right wrist is painful too. So, asked the doctor and she told me to wear wrist guard things when I sleep. I need to get them tonight so I can sleep a whole night without getting up 30,000 times to shake my hands awake! I have been a walking zombie for the past few days and I'm sure that is it!
Baby B is moving around like a mad man in there! This past week, his flutters have gone to full fledged kicks and punches. Though, they are not strong they definitely can be felt! I didn't think I'd feel him this much since I have an anterior placenta but it doesn't seem to be stopping him!
(You can clearly see his spine and if you look closesly you can see his femur!)
Baby B weighs a pound now! Apparently, according to Wombtobloom--Your baby’s skin will begin to turn from transparent to opaque during week 22 of pregnancy. No longer could one see all of the blood vessels and interior contents of your baby. The skin isn’t quite how it will look at birth, but it is getting closer. It is changing to a pinkish, whitish color and soon will have wrinkles and creases. It is also getting thicker, with more fat deposits going in place under the skin.
Also, his brain is undergoing rapid growth stage (He is smart, I just know it, lol!), his liver is beginning to break down billrubin which will later be evident by all the dirty diapers!
