21 weeks!

What’s going on this week:

Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she’s practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby’s eyebrows and lids are present now.


My Update:

Due Date: November 4, 2011 – 133 days to go!

Weight Gain: +8 lbs (from pre-preg weight). Alright – that was a noticeable jump.

Symptoms:  Still with the peeing.  Also, Lisa wanted me to mention that I have been extra emotional about TV shows and commercials…and now apparently about food, too.  I brought home sandwiches for dinner tonight and my tuna fish sandwich tasted so fishy that I could only eat one bite and had to toss it. (Scott tried it and also said it was gross – so it wasn’t just pregnancy tastebuds.)  I really wanted to cry about it, because dang it, I wanted that sandwich, but instead made I myself suck it up and make a PB&J.

Cravings/Aversions: None, really.  I just want my food to taste good.  IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?!

Sleep:  Great!

I am loving: You know, so far, I have been really fine with people touching my belly.  Granted it’s only been close friends and family, but I like it!  As soon as a random stranger does it though, I might change my mind.

I miss:  Nothing right now…

Movement: About the same.  I feel him everyday, at different times.  Now it’s just a matter of time before it changes from flips and flutters to kicks and jabs.

New category!! Nursery progress:  So far, so good!  It’s becoming more and more empty as the days go by!  We bought a lamp at IKEA a few weeks back that I have since decided will go into the baby’s room, and today I ordered a picture off Etsy to go on the wall.

Exercise: Scott and I went on a walk one night.  Otherwise, I baked 18 dozen cookies on my regular yoga night and decorated 12 dozen of them on my regular pilates night.  So….

Diet:  I think I had peanut butter and jelly too many times this week.

Looking forward to: My next midwife appointment on Tuesday.
