With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.

As im writing this bay Jovi is kicking up a storm! I'm watching my belly move around from her movements. I feel like she is getting a lot bigger. I feel my skin stretching so tightly. Its a very crazy feeling. i guess i thought pregnant ladies had squishy bellies nope mine feels like a ballon. 

the past two days were pretty bad for me. I went to work fine on weds day but left hardly being able to walk. i had some major pains on my right side just below my bikini line.  I took it easy for the rest of the night but yesterday it was worse. I couldn't walk for most the day.  I called my mid wife and she told me
 that it was probably my round ligaments which hold the uterus in place. She told me i would have to see a chiropractor  and a get a prenatal massage to help the pain. Well i booked my appointments for the first opening (next Tuesday and Thursday) thinking i would be in pain till then, but i woke up this morning feeling great.  I'm definitely learning that everyday your body feels different during pregnancy. one day your fine the next you limping. Who knows what tomorrow may bring. 

Baby's size? baby jovi is a little more than a pound and 11 inch long.

Weight gain? im at about 13 pounds now. 

Stretch marks?  still holding strong, but my belly feels so taught that im worried they might show up. 

Belly button in or out? still an inny

Sleep? this  week has been pretty good sleep wise. i have made it almost the whole night through a few nights in a row. 

Best moment this week? getting to video chat with jesse's mom. I always forget that it's possible to video chat so when we do it's pretty amazing. 

Any cravings? nah, i pretty much eat the same way i did before i was pregos 

About a year ago we scored these amazing chandeliers. Im a total sucker for chandeliers and i seriously have way to many. Jesse has been resisting my pleadings for him to hang them, but i finally broke him down. It took a year but it was worth it. I think they look amazing. Jesse even likes them now that they are up.
