What’s a Rutabaga?!

What’s a Rutabaga?!

Some weeks these baby size comparisons are so bizarre. Aren’t they supposed to give you a way to visualize what size baby is in there? Who chose rutabaga?! I had to Google it and I still don’t know what size it is. Hopefully next week is something easier. My app also told me my uterus is the size of a soccer ball. Now that I can visualize. And it shows in the photos ūüėā

We had a fun week this week, traveling up to Massachusetts to attend a surprise party for my brother’s upcoming 30th birthday and had Father’s Day breakfast with the whole fam! Then I proceeded to get a horrible sunburn on my boobs, bump, and thighs. ūüė© I’m usually so good about putting sunscreen on. I’m not sure where my head was. At least I didn’t do it on vacation! That could have ruined a good beach week!!!

At my 24 week appointment, my midwife said I am measuring a bit small. She added a growth ultrasound to my 28 week appointment just to make sure pork chop is on track. He was perfect at the 20 week scan so she said she isn’t concerned. Fingers crossed he’s still perfectly perfect when I go again on the 6th of July!

What a fun week we’ve had!!

I’ve been feeling really good, and just in time for a trip to Block Island to celebrate our friends’ wedding.

Pork chop got a LOT of attention.

Sleeping in a tiny bed with a spring mattress was not fun, so I left the weekend a bit more tired than usual. But we had such a blast. Lots of sightseeing, eating, and dancing!

The weekend went by way too fast!

I’m starting to feel more stretched out this week. My skin is itchy and my stomach is hard. It’s tougher to do simple things like tie my shoes or bend over because my stomach is in the way. I’ve still got a long way to go. I’m sure it will only get more difficult from here! Still feeling good. No nausea. Good level of energy (when I don’t stay out dancing til 11pm and then get up at 6am lol).

My 24 week appointment is on Thursday and I officially hit the 6 month mark on Friday!
