18 week Lovely Lady Lumps

I'm getting more used to my new lovely lady lumps now. I'm not supposed to lay flat on my back anymore because baby will press down on the big vein bringing blood back up to my heart. I usually sleep on my side anyway so that's fine. This bump is getting big enough that I can't bend and fold up as easily as I've always been able to...that's taking some adjusting to, I'm usually so flexible. Feelin' a little strain on my lower back already! I need to do some yoga and get my back strong before I really have a big load to carry around!

So, they say baby's about 5 1/2 inches long and weights about 7 ounces now..about the size of a big bell pepper. His skeleton is calcifying more and more, arms and legs getting stronger and stronger. I feel him every day stretching and bouncing around in there....I LOVE IT. This growth spurt is making me pretty hungry-- seems like I have to eat every couple of hours. Half my bag is food when I leave for work in the morning. Anyway, baby and mama are doing good!
