Alhamdulillah, everything looks normal. the baby was very very active (so as right now, as i am typing, he/she keeps on kicking my belly). The doc tried to peek at the gender, but she couldnt confirm if it's a boy or a girl. as for now, 60% looks like a boy. but the gender doesnt really matter to us. as long as the baby is healthy, we are more than thankful.
My weight has increased rapidly. I gained another 3.5 kilos this month (same as my pre-pregnancy weight - since i lost almost 4 kg during the 1st trimester), though i dont think i change my eating habit. Early morning breakfast, morning breakfast, lunch, some munching time and dinner. As usual. So i conclude, this must be the baby.. ehehe :)
Yes, i'm getting bigger.I noticed people looked at me twice, which i believed was because they wanted to confirm it's either my growing belly is due to pregnancy or gas bloating? hahaha
I noticed that it's hard for me to walk faster, as usual. as i recalled at this time on my first pregnancy, i was so active that i could easily run or walk fast (click here). it was just a matter of climbing stairs.
Here is what i read in the pregnancy website:
The grow must go on! No wonder you’re getting so big, you’re now housing a wonder-baby who weighs nearly a pound and measures nearly a foot in length. Their perfect little pancreas is now further developed and they’ve also started producing their own hormones! Your baby's future in the circus as a world-famous tight-rope-walker is secure: their inner ear is now developed to the point that they have their own sense of balance. Lucky for your little explorer, balance also promotes physical dexterity, which has them actively feeling out their surroundings where skin, body parts, and the resident umbilical cord are the big sensory experiences. Your foot-long baby, is looking a bit like an oversized raisin right now as more and more wrinkles are showing up each week. Not to worry, all that excessive wrinkling is just their skin’s way of planning ahead for the time when they’ll start piling on that irresistible baby chub.I guess that's it for today. I'll find another time tomorrow for Lissa's new progress...
