21 weeks – kind of a boring update. I’m sorry.

What’s new with the baby?
At 10.5 inches and about 12.2 ounces, she’s big enough now that you’ve probably been feeling her movements.During week 21, baby’s digestive system preps for the outside world; she’s manufacturing meconium — the tarry black substance you’ll find in her first dirty diaper!
Food comparison this week is…
(Not sure how we went from a banana to a pomegranate.  that seems…backwards.)
How am I feeling?

Overall..not bad.  No heartburn since those 2 days last week.  Must have been a fluke thing.  Or, it could have been that we had some lemonade in the house and I had some both of the days I had heartburn, and that’s it.  Coincidence?  Maybe…so long as it stays gone, I’m fine with it.  And I might just avoid lemonade from here on out, just in case.  Otherwise, I’m just feeling sort of large.  And I’m feeling slightly overwhelmed with the change in my *almost* two year old.  He has started getting frustrated and tantrum-y when things do not go his way.  I feel like it was a sudden change and I’m not sure what to do with it, but thankfully, the bouts of it are pretty short and he is usually pretty easily distracted.  He’s such a good and easy-going kid, that this sort of behavior is just foreign.  I hope it will be a pretty short phase.  On the flipside, he is really into hugging and kissing right now, so that mostly makes up for the whining and crying.

Weight gain?
Today was supposed to be my prenatal appt, but it got cancelled since there is a mom in labor at the birth center.  Hopefully we can get it rescheduled soon.
What do I miss?  What am I looking forward to?

Family is here!  yay!  We’re having fun so I’ll keep this week’s update short.


Nothing really new this week on this front.

Highlights of the week?

I can’t think of anything particularly stand-out except for Urijah’s first real haircut a couple nights ago.  He was freaked out and he cried, but a lollipop and holding Dad’s hand for the duration seemed to help quite a bit.

we missed last week’s picture, but I’m going to try really hard to get one taken this week.  Who knew it was so hard?!
