Life seems to be getting way busy around here. Next week we start on buying the big items for baby Grayson (crib, swing, bedding, pak-n-play, etc), this week; however,
we are I am packing. I think I have packed 10 boxes, and we have furniture stacked on top of furniture (no joke) I am keeping my eyes focused that the current tenant will be moved out, and we can move in. I will not get discouraged, I will hold on to my faith, and know that in patience, good things come to those who wait.
During Zumba this week, I started having Braxton Hicks Contractions. I hope this doesn’t mean that I will have to lay out of Zumba. Savoy (Hubby) is concerned, but I just did the best I could, and eventually my stomach stopped tightening up. I did stop and get me some more water while it was happening though.
Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you’ll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby’s hardening skeleton each day.
