You are such a brat already!

Do I sound like a meanie mommy? But that's how I feel you are :)

Two days back you were kicking around and moving so much and continued it over two days. I was hurting all over due to that. The ribs, the back, the pelvic area, the name it and it was hurting. It started on Sunday morning and continued till Monday night. Your papa told me that from the look on my face I was literally in tears. And you bet I was.

I got to you see you again on 11 Jul 2011. I had gone for an additional ultrasound to check if the placenta has moved up as my office is moving to Gurgaon which would mean about 2.5-3 hrs of traveling everyday. I had to check the placenta position and then decide how safe it is for me to travel so much. Since it hasn't moved much and is still quite low (2-3 cms from OS) I would be going to work 2-3 times a week and the rest I would work from home.

In the ultrasound the doc showed me your face in 3-D. You had your right hand on your head as if you were in a deep thought. I wonder if you were already thinking about your life outside? :D

My appetite has really increased in the past few days and I feel like eating every 2 hours. On the day of the ultrasound, my weight was 60.7 KGs at the docs clinic while at home scale it showed me at 61.3 KGs. I'm sure it has increased as the home scale showed me at 61.7 Kgs yesterday. So even if we look at the difference in scales at the hospital and at home, I would have still gained 1+ KGs so far. Your weight as per the ultrasound was 818 gms which is fine as per doc. So again no worries with respect to my low weight gain.

Your papa has been ensuring there are plenty of fruits at home all the time and also that there is lots of variety. I have been having mangoes, pomegranate, Pears, Plums, Apples and once a week coconut water too.

I love to eat Sabudana khichdi and make it almost 3-4 times a week. I also crave for Chinese cuisine but because of MSG I've to avoid it :(

The 26 week newsletter told me that you are about 14 inches long now. With the development of the network of nerves in your ears,  you may now be able to hear me and papa chat with each other. You have also started inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of your lungs. It also said that these so-called breathing movements are a good practice for you when you are born and take that first gulp of air. You continue to put on baby fat.

Your bhaiyya continues to talk to you often and always refer to you as "My Baby". He will ask "Mera baby kya kar raha hai? Ninnu kar raha hai?" (What is my baby doing? Are you sleeping?")

We moved your bhaiyya in a separate bed in our room itself so that he can get used to it before you arrive as you would need to sleep between me and your papa. It took some time but its all sorted out now. There are no tussles or fusses to handle.

Grow well my bachha. We all love you.
