HIS SIZE: 16 inches long & 2.5 pounds; the size of a coconut
WEIGHT GAIN: 19 lbs
SLEEP: Pretty good
SYMPTOMS: When I was pregnant with Ryann, I ended up with two hernias. I guess that is the result of having a 9+ pound baby. I had the umbilical hernia repaired surgically but did not address the inguinal hernia in my groin because as soon as she was born, it dissipated. My surgeon said that it would likely never return unless I became pregnant again. At the time, we were not sure if we were going to have an more kids so I passed on having another surgery. Fast forward four years to another pregnancy and the hernia is back. It is a weird sensation to have something pushing out of the side of your groin (sorry if this is TMI but it is real life). Anyway, aside from dealing with groin pain (lol) and super exhaustion, all is well!
STRETCH MARKS: none
MOVEMENT: At given time, my stomach looks like there is wild creature inside.
THREE THINGS I AM LOVING RIGHT NOW:
1: All things Christmas - We have had our fair share of hot chocolate, Christmas movies, gingerbread house-making and crafting the past week and a half and I love it!
