poundage: according to my home scale 5 lbs - i don't trust the one at the doctors. not being sick helps one gain weight.
baby size: the size of a kiwi
how i'm feeling: man i am the luckiest pregnant lady in the world. i don't really get that sick. i did at the beginning and at night is when i feel my worst [i get super bloated, can't eat much and need to lay down], but my worst isn't near as bad as others. i do get some twinges and pulls sometimes and get tired a lot [i currently take daily naps when landon does and it's fantastic].
how landon is taking the news: he doesn't really get it yet which makes sense. i'll talk about baby brother [bc i know it will be a boy] in our prayers and during the day or when i get sick but he just doesn't understand. i have gotten him to dance like baby brother [he'll say 'wiggle wiggle wiggle' and move side to side; it's adorable]. he has gotten pretty clingy which my friend thinks it might be because he know he's going to get edged out soon but i'm not sure.
what i've been eating: a whole lot of bland things - lots of toast, cereal, salad and soup. it's really the only thing that sounds good. pizza is disgusting, cane's makes me sick and sometimes even slurpees aren't alluring [gasp!]. yet somehow i gained 5 lbs.
what i've been doing: i've been working out pretty regularly, trying to keep those lbs in check. i tried a funky yoga class last week which was a hoot- just yoga to modern music. it was awesome! i can't really run anymore but i'm walking, doing the elliptical and lifting weights. going to classes are a lot of fun. let's see if i can keep it up!
how baby bear is doing: everything checked out great at the doctors! we got another ultrasound which was fun - he was scrunched up like a frog, jumping every now and then. unfortunately he wouldn't spread his legs to confirm it's a boy [so he doesn't take after me]. the ultrasound tech suggested i drink a slurpee beforehand next time.... she obviously doesn't know me. i've also started the rounds of genetic testing [blood, urine, blood of my first born] but i'm not worried.
what i'm looking forward to: the next ultrasound when we find out the sex, even though i'm like 95% sure it's a boy. i'm not that sick. plus i just want another boy. justin really thinks it's a girl so we'll see. i'm also super excited for justin and me to go to big bear without landon. it'll be a nice romantic getaway! these times are numbered.
