I don’t know if people still read my blog since I went pretty silent post-Ironman Chattanooga (cue gratuitous post reminding myself that I really was athletic this one time). I’m doing these weekly bumpdates for myself but also because I really did and do enjoy reading them from other bloggers. I like knowing what’s normal (even though I’m learning that abnormal is pretty much the normal).
Baby is now the size of: A Belgian endive or a banana. An endive is so fancy, so the banana gives me a better sense of how big baby really is. Apparently this week they start measuring head to toe instead of crown to rump. Good to know.
Total weight gain: +13.5. I guess I’m down a little from last week. I’ve been eating insanely healthy this week and I also know that I’m still right where I need to be. I know last week I was holding some water weight, and my doctor I’m sure will be happy on Wednesday with where I am. She told me at the 17 week appointment to gain half a pound per week, so I’m working on that. I should be right at that when I have my appointment on Wednesday.
