Pregnancy updates #4: 9 pounds heavy

bebe shobe as kyle would fondly call the baby is growing. fast! as of last check up, i gained 9 pounds. i guess with the baby's growth spurt and my nonstop eating escapades, i didn't imagine i could gain that much over a month or so. but the good news is, and according to my OB my weight is still right on track. so no need to worry yet. (or until the next lab test results are in)

the little one has been doing ok. mostly awake towards the evenings and when i'm idle or just watching tv with the boys.

as much as i am worried about the sleepless nights ahead like a first time mom, i think i'm ready for the challenge. i didn't raise 2 boys for nothing and the ongoing nightly wakings and feedings are still in progress. but this time with "mommy dede" from keon with fake crying or "mommy i want dede" from kyle with urgent tappings on my tummy. and where is hubby? fast asleep like a baby. haha

this time i am bargaining with him that if this one's a girl, he better make sure to take care of his "princess". i've done my share with my 2 princes (haha). but yeah, looks like it'll be mommy and baby #3 with the night feedings, changing at rocking to sleep. :)

anyway, here's what babycenter says:

Your baby is still on the skinny side with no body fat but his brain is growing rapidly and he's starting to fill the space in your uterus. By now, you probably have a definite "pregnant" shape and the linea nigra, a dark line of pigmentation, may appear down the center of your abdomen. Your baby's taste buds are also forming and, believe it or not, his sweet tooth. Could that explain your sudden craving for doughnuts? No one knows for sure but it's a good excuse, next time you find yourself visiting the bakery.
