Growing Peanut: 4 months

I think I'm going to stick with monthly Peanut updates because week to week gets tedious. And I know none of you care what fruit the baby is supposed to resemble now. P.S. BabyCenter, you could actually pick something accurate instead of saying it's the size of an avocado and 3.5oz. No avocado that size is 3.5 oz.  And I would know since I love avocados. I wrote a whole post dedicated to them and all that jazz.

And honestly, I'm not finding enough change on a weekly time frame that warrants me spending precious time writing the post. Sleeping is more important than blogging. Now, without further ado, let us get onto my most favoritest of favorite (I'm not sure if that's dripping with enough sarcasm, you'll have to tell me) part of this post: the selfie!

I was going to start a chart of body statistics but eh, whatever.  Right now I'm at the top end (oops?) of my weight range (144.8) but I'm not concerned. I'm sure it'll even out in the end. It's not like I'm going crazy and stuffing my face full of food.

I had my second prenatal appointment exactly a week ago and it went well. So well, in fact, that I don't have much to say about it. Peanut's got a good strong heartbeat which the nurse found right away and all my lab results from the first appointment were normal. My next appointment will consist of the anatomy ultrasound and a regular appointment. If Peanut cooperates, we'll be able to find out whether Peanut is a he or a she. If you want to guess the sex, you can leave a comment down below. There's no prize for getting it right though!

Body Changes
In the first trimester update, I mentioned my nausea had mostly left and that still stands. Occasionally, I'll have a day where my body just decides to be nauseated and it's exhausting but it's so infrequent that I don't mind it as much. My most frequent (and strangest symptom) right now is a complete lack of appetite. I'll have days where I'm not nauseous but no food appeals to me even though physically I feel hungry. I'm a slave to the mysterious craving of mystery that I would really like to stop being so damn mysterious. It's bizarre and frustrating at times and it's totally the reason behind why I'm not stuffing my face full of food.
