This week`s news
So the biggest news from this week;
My baby, now 6 months (=24 weeks) and 3 days along...
is a BOY!
He weighs 769 grams (getting so big!)
We have come to the conclusion that the men in Yoshi`s family (he has 2 brothers - who both have sons), are capable only of making boy babies. I will have lots of people to go to for advice once this one gets a bit older.
Here is the bump photo for this week;
Friday - 24 weeks
Getting much rounder!
On that note, the next piece of news was a WARNING from my doctor that I have to stop gaining weight at such a rapid rate. I told you guys about my weight gain limit... well, I have hit it already (10kg!!) OMG. He is not happy at all and says that not only will it be really hard for me to lose the weight after the baby is born, but weight gain of more than 10-12kg during a pregnancy can be very harmful for the baby and cause it to develop problems such as diabetes! So scary.
So he told me NOT to eat any sweet / fatty foods for the next month and see if that helps. Well it sure doesn`t help me... This is the season of decadence and gift giving (not only in Japan I know), and we have cakes, candy, chocolate and delicious snacks arriving daily from friends, family and Yoshi`s business customers.
But, whatever is best for my son! I can do it.
Have a great day :)
