Woohoo! Over halfway there! Not by much, but it has gone by way fast!
PICS: This is me at 21 weeks exactly. I feel like while I was gone camping last week I "popped". My bump is way more apparent now and I look more and more pregnant everyday. Pretty exciting!
How far along: 21 weeks. Over halfway there!
How big is baby: The size of a pomegranate. She is manufacturing meconium (eeww) and she already has a lifetime supply of eggs in her womb!
Total weight gain: They did not weigh me during my Thursday appointment, so I have no clue. If my bathroom scale is right I have gained at least 2 more pounds, for a total of 9. Have to wait and see at my next appt.
Sleep: I have been sleeping pretty well actually. A few nighttime trips to the bathroom and some back pain, but not too bad so far.
Maternity Clothes: Still just bottoms. I am going to take a trip to EcoThrift this week and try to find some of those flowy cotton skirts with the elastic waists and maybe some more work appropriate clothes.
Best moment of the week: Finding out that Little Hill is a girl! We had our anatomy scan on Thursday and got to see her wiggling around in there! She is super active and the tech had a hard time getting some of the measurements she needed!
Food cravings : Nothing weird yet.
Food aversions: None really. I like to eat everything! :D
Symptoms: I cannot run/walk 5 miles like I used to without being super sore for the rest of the day! Had SacFit yesterday and limped around like an old lady the rest of the day!
Movement: More than last week, but still only every once in awhile. Considering how wiggly she was during the u/s I hope I can feel her regularly soon!
Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce Hill :D
What I’m looking forward to: Feeling more movements this week. Doc said week 21 can be the magical week...we shall see. I also really want Matt to feel her, but she isn't quite strong enough yet.
What I miss: Exercising without hurting the rest of the day!
Next appt: Follow up u/s on Monday to recheck a few measurements since she was so wiggly on Thursday!
