Baby is the size of a mango

Body Changes: I didn't weigh myself this week, and if I did, I'd be reporting with the metrics system. I can tell the belly is a little bigger. I have a maternity dress that's been too big to wear that I finally fill in enough to wear, and that's exciting!
Sleeping: I've been sleeping through the night most nights at home, and the first few nights I slept like a rock traveling! I had one rough day on a hard bed in Rome. I definitely understand now why Jacob has a harder time traveling than I do- your body is a little more sensitive to beds sleeping on your side! I've been sleeping on my side most of the trip without my body pillow, so that's been great too.
I've been too tired to remember any of my weird dreams, but I'm sure they'll return once I'm not walking 6-10 miles a day and sleeping as soundly!
Fitness: Before the trip I did one last run and some weight lifting. Running is getting harder, but weights are feeling great! I've been walking tons this trip and my Fitbit is showing that! I've felt pretty great so far and have been impressed my body hasn't been slowing down my travel see-all-the-things ambition.
Craving: For the most part he's letting me eat what I want. However, for someone who hasn't been the biggest sugar fan this pregnancy he's shocked me with a longing for gelato every day in Italy. Particularly limone- that kid loves all things lemon!
I also found they eat little protein in Italy, so the mornings we had breakfasts with eggs available I couldn't get enough of them!
He's developing his 5 senses this week, which is fun to think about him listening, learning to see, learning to smell, using that tongue and getting taste buds, and feeling around in there. I'm pretty sure his taste for Italian food will be present his entire life after this week! I can't believe how fast they grow, how alive they are, and the amazing miracle growing a baby really is!
