After an uncharacteristically slow month at work and a few new symptoms effecting me – low back discomfort, headaches, swelling & the beginnings of what I think may be carpal tunnel – I was very happy for the lull at work and looking forward to a relaxing holiday!
Today I felt the first flutter of activity in my womb!
Blair took me out for dinner after a long day of work to our fave sushi resto downtown – Natural Sushi – and while eating a dragon roll with spicy wasabi sauce I felt a very distinct kick to the upper left quadrant!
My early X-mas present! Very kewl 🙂
We are almost 16 WEEKS into our pregnancy and we’re gearing up for a mega growth spurt!! Baby is about the size of an avocado — about 4.5 inches long and weighs about 3.5 ounces — this will double in the next few weeks!! WOAH! 🙂
So when I first went to my Medical Doctor I asked her why we calculate pregnancy based on a woman’s last menstrual period??!! She just smiled and said “Yeah I know it doesn’t make sense, but that’s how it’s done?!”
