How your baby’s growing:
Your baby’s sensory development is exploding! Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don’t be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.
Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.

How Am I feeling?
I feel weird. My tummy’s getting a bumpy already. I’m wearing my maternity pants as well every time we go out. Still craving for a lot of food which I couldn’t find here in SAR right now. I’m loosing weight – which is not what we all expect. I’m now weighing 45kgs. The last time I checked, I was 43kgs. We’re thinking that the 2kgs is because of the baby not because I’m getting bigger. I don’t eat that much as well. I don’t have my appetite to eat and it’s killing my husband for it. So my in-laws are trying their best as well to feed me. We had to go out every 2 days just to change my mood. I hate my hormones – honestly! and I don’t like the feeling that I’m special just so because I’m pregnant. But never the less, I’m thankful and blessed to have such a supportive family-in-laws during the absence of my parents.
I’m emotionally inclined as well with my mood. I hate seeing my husband in the morning. So what he usually do is that he will not talk to me that much in the morning instead, he’ll just give a quick kiss good morning to avoid me being in a bad mood. Yeah I know, I’m one lucky girl.
