Week 21

How far along? 21 weeks 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: I decided this is too depressing to look at so I quit.

How big is baby? Baby is the size of a Pomegranate. at 10.5 inches long and about 12.7 ounces. The ultra sound tech said she's a little over a pound which she told me is more close to right. I don't know.
  • As her digestive system preps for the outside world, she's manufacturing meconium - the tarry black substance you'll find in her first dirty diaper (ew)!
  • Baby girl will have her lifetime supply of eggs in her womb - about six million of them.

Maternity Clothes? Pretty much yup. I haven't tried on anything but my running shorts and hubby's t-shirts. I should try on my jeans just to see but that might make me cry so why put myself through that.

Stretch Marks? I still haven't seen any yet. I doubt I'm lucky enough to get by without any. I do have blue veins very close to the surface that have shown up which are cool but freaky looking at the same time.

Best moment this week? Getting to see Addison on the 4-D ultra sound. The little stinker wasn't cooperating though and didn't want to show her face until 45 minutes and the very last picture we got. It was also great because my Mom and my Mother in law got to be there to see their newest grand baby, that was pretty sweet.

Movement? All I can say is she must have gotten my dance moves :) But I'm not complaining! It's good to know she's in there moving around!

Food Cravings/Aversions? I'm still a bit grouchy about this one... steak. I can't eat steak, seriously? Still no crazy cravings though. Although the other day Salt and Vinegar chips sounded really good, but I didn't find any. That and a Braum's Twist in a waffle cone sounds really good too. I get those every now and then but hold back at the same time.

What I miss: Being able to bend over and tie my shoes easily! Everyone laughs when I say this and tell me it'll only get worse. I also still miss my clothes! I'm tired of these maternity pants. They just aren't flattering on me :)

What I'm looking forward to: Getting over this cold. I'm sure that baby is too because this cough is nasty! I've been fighting it for 4 weeks now. ugh!

Nausea/Vomiting? Sadly I did have an episode this week, but hubby wasn't feeling well either so we wonder if it was something we ate?

Labor signs? Let's sure hope not! Way to early! It does crack me up when they ask me that at the doctors office. They've asked me that since the first appointment around week 8.

Gender? We have had them verify it's a girl 3 different times. Think it's a girl?!?!

Belly Button in or out?  It's still in but getting shallow and it aches! OMG does it ache! I've always had issues with my belly button hurting though so that doesn't totally surprise me.

Wedding rings on or off? They are still on. yey :)

Sleep? I need a nap most days. I thought the second trimester was supposed to bring about more energy. Where is my energy? Sadly I can't sleep through the night either. Hubby brought this cold to me and since he's had it, he's started snoring again at night which wakes me up about 4-4:30 and won't allow me to go back to sleep which is probably why I'm so dadgum tired.

Weekly Wisdom: I've been stressed out this week and I don't see it getting better for a couple of weeks. It's due to being tired and the stresses of school and worrying (about things I can and can't control) and sooooo much more. My weekly wisdom is pray. I don't know what else to do. Otherwise I sadly don't have anything. And just something funny that is totally random and has nothing to do with this... yeah so the church bulletin on Sunday said that Saturday was the 29th... lol.

Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014 was what we originally thought. Then I was told June 30, then July 4th, then June 26, then June 27 and after the 3-D ultra sound June 28. I guess she'll come when she's ready, right?
