So, we've made it quite a ways :) Everything seems to be progressing normally. I've been doing a good job about getting in more fluids and am finally having something resembling an appetite returning. My stomach still revolts againist me every now and again, but it is much better than it has been. My activity level is going up. I walked around 35 to 40 miles the four days that the Norman's and I spent in Rome. My only real surprise has been my shifting fat. I guess I had just figured that I would go from my normal body to a slightly forming belly and then showing all the way. Not so! Oh well, I am proud to be carrying this child if I don't care what she (no, we don't know the sex) is doing to be figure. I thought you might all enjoy the snippet from BabyCenter that lets you know more about the future Baby Thomas.
"..., he's only about 3 inches long crown to rump — roughly the size of a jumbo shrimp — and weighs just about an ounce. Despite the small proportions, there's a fully formed baby inside your womb now. Much more proportional than it was a few weeks ago, his head is now only about a third the size of his body. His tiny, unique fingerprints are already in place."
