I officially move into my second trimester next week (although some sites say week 12 is already the second trimester!).
At 4 months nearly all of Peanut’s organs and structures have already formed. Fingers and toes have separated and hair and nails begin to grow. The genitals begin to take on their gender characteristics!! Oh please let it be a girl!
Very proud that up until now, not a single experience of the dreaded morning sickness :) And since I’ve passed the 3 month mark, won’t be having ANY at all *smug face*
Waist has become thicker.
Boobs are bigger, firmer and might be up a cup size
Still no visible baby bump (or I’d like to think so).
Constantly hungry and will feel nausea if I’m not fed.
No wonky hormones and am still sane on most days.
Back and feet hurts a little sometimes, which is why having a nice hubby helps.
Yup, he’s the sweetest
Libido increased and heightened, ahem. Every touch, every kiss, every thrust is magnified 1000x.
Just started on some stretch mark cream I got from a site called IHerb in the States. Stretch marks dont really bother me since I wont be gracing Sports Illustrated any time soon :) I’ve been told that stretch marks are genetics, so if your momma has it, you will too but still, dont know what made me get this. Maybe I am vain sometimes, afterall.
I’m still waiting for the glow and thicker hair though
This week since the baby’s gender will be decided, I’ve been praying so hard that it will be a girl. My husband on the other hand thinks I’m putting too much hope into this and says I will be greatly disappointed if its not a girl.
If it’s a boy, I’ll be putting him up for adoption. Anyone? I kid.
My husband has 95% boys from his side which scares me to death. Both his aunts (Yes both his aunts are into their 40s and pregnant) who are 2-5 months ahead of me are carrying BOYS! But still, I want to remain optimistic but it’s not helping much since everyone else on my side of the family wants to go against me and wish for a boy.
I have 4 weeks more to go before my next appointment with the OBYGYN. That’s when we’ll know.
Still fond of spicy food, but not so much like previously. I must have rice at least once a day. Starting to grow very fond of fried rice.
Likes juices now – orange juice, banana shake, apple juice, mmmm juice….
Extremely fond of husband, more so when I’m in the mood
Not so into chocolates or anything chocolatey although it used to be my favorite past time.
Constantly yearns for a foot and back massage. We go for a foot massage at least once a week now.
Always on a lookout for cute baby clothes which includes online shopping and checking out every physical baby store.
Already looking at baby items like strollers, play pen, toys, etc – only the best for my baby please.
Has no issue dropping any amount of $ when it comes to Peanut
Here are some baby clothes bought locally online recently.
Yea, I love showing off my baby’s wardrobe
Constantly stops mommy from buying anything pink because he wants to know the gender first. Whatever happened to taking risks?! But he does enjoy looking at baby strollers, car bucket seats and the way I’ve taken all this in very well now :)
That’s all for baby reporting! I know I should be more concerned about the baby’s health and well-being etc instead of worry about the gender but I can’t help it ok. We have already found an amazing name for her
