According to The Bump, the baby is about the size of an avocado, measuring 4.6 in. and weighing 3.5 oz. The baby’s hair, lashes and eyebrows are growing, taste buds are forming and it can hear my voice!!

Maternity Clothes?

Not yet.

Symptoms

The usual – tired, hungry, lots of pee breaks.

Cravings/Aversions

Nothing unusual.

Exercise

Saturday: 6 mile run
Sunday: 3.7 mile run
Monday: 5K run
Wednesday: P90X Yoga*
Thursday: 3.7 mile run

*I’ve modified certain activities, as needed. For example, with yoga, I stopped doing plow and wheel when I found out I was pregnant. I loved wheel. šŸ™

This week, my belly got in the way of doing twisted chair pose, so that one is out now, as well.

Movement?

Maybe. It kind of felt like there was movement every once in a while.

Milestones

The Quad Screen, which screens for Down Syndrome, Edwards syndrome, Spina bifida and Anencephaly, came back normal. I am now “officially” pregnant, since a coworker who didn’t know I was pregnant asked me if I was expecting. Yup, that makes it official. šŸ™‚ Running has been feeling much better this trimester (so far). I kind of wish the half marathon had been in this trimester, instead!
