"Your baby's the size of a jackfruit!
In month nine, the average fetus is about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds and measures about 18.9 to 20.19 inches (wow!)."

How baby is growing:
- continuing to grow hair and nails.
- keeping up that lung development, too
Maternity Clothes: Is there anything that fits, period?
Sleep: I've been waking up after 3 hour increments and can't go back to sleep until a couple hours later. Could be pregnancy related or the bear who
Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week: Just trying to be patient. :)
Movement: It's slowed down a lot, but she still lets me know.
Food Cravings: frozen coke, ice cold water (like half frozen), chocolate, taco salad, Captain Crunch, cake, milk,
Food Aversions: Not really anything.
Gender: our second precious baby girl
Symptoms: My hips have been hurting while sleeping, irritability has returned, exhaustion and insomnia
What I miss: Already having a baby to hold! Having never been this pregnant before, it's crazy to think at this point I'd already had 2 and 3 week olds with Andrew and Lily by this point.
What I'm looking forward to: Holding a new little baby again, hoping I don't miss out on Halloween with my kids!
**Weekly appointment on 10/15: heartbeat was 160, bp 120/78, cervix dilated to 2, 70% effaced. I have another appointment scheduled for tomorrow to check and talk about possible induction date. Although they said as long as my blood pressure stays good, they'll let me go a week to 10 days over. ugh! We'll see what happens.
