One website shows three limes as a comparison to the baby this week. Another had a cantaloupe. Cantaloupe...three limes. Yeah. Not even near the same size. I'm going with three limes. I don't think he'll be the size of a cantaloupe for several more weeks, at least the cantaloupes we find around here.
She's got working taste buds. Now, she's gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day -- that's significantly more than before.
I actually took that pic last night, so technically 19 weeks 6 days. I sort of look huge there. It just depends on what I'm wearing.
See? This morning. Another horrible picture! I need to stop taking pictures in the morning, apparently.
Halfway there! I can't really complain. No, really. Everything is good.
Avery has been so sweet and actually seems to sort of get that she's going to have a little brother. The other day she brought me a sticker and put it on my belly and said, "for the baby." I asked her if she wanted to give the baby a kiss and she said "no, I'll wait until he comes out." I showed her an outfit I bought for him and she said "oh, that's ca-ute." So I don't know if she really, really gets it, but she's doing a great job of playing along. I really think she will be a sweet big sister. I'm sure there will be moments of jealousy. We'll see.
My next appointment is March 13th. Hopefully everything from the anatomy scan looked good and I haven't gained five more pounds.
