How far along? 21 Weeks , 0 Days ; Second Trimester ; 19 weeks to go!!!
Size of baby ? She is about 10.5 inches long and weighs an estimated 12.5 oz. According to thebump, she is the size of a pomegranate.
Maternity Clothes? I broke down and bought a pair of maternity jeans on Sunday. I just was getting sick of the ole rubberband trick. My zipper wouldn’t stay up. I still haven’t worn them , for now I will stick with dresses and the maternity leggings I purchased prior…and of course sweat pants and PJS.
Weight Gain? I have gained about 12 lbs since my pre-pregnancy weight. I spoke with my midwife at my 20 week OB appt and she said my weight gain was on target. I was worried I was way over. Phew!
Stretch Marks? None yet. Still lubing up !
Sleep? I must have jinxed myself last week when bragging about my sleep patterns. This week it wasn’t all that great. I did go to bed later than normal so hopefully that’s it. Fingers crossed !
Missing anything? No, not this week
Craving anything? No. This week is a bit boring. Still thinking cravings are mind over matter.
Any sickness? None.
Bump ? It’s there. Inching its way out. I feel bigger in the evenings.. This is for sure!
Baby Movement ? Yes ! Movement is increasing day by day. I am pretty sure she is awake in the morning and before I am going to bed. She loves using my bladder as a trampoline.
Gender: GIRL! I haven’t had an ultrasound in a few weeks. I see the fetal specialist this week and they do one at every visit !I had a blood test done for something and in addition to those results , it gives you the gender. I am pretty certain we are sticking with ” Female Fetus ”
Belly Button: Creepin’
Labor Signs: None
Mood: The grouch has been released. I’ve been a little moody this week . Blaming it on the hormones.
Symptoms: Constipation, gas, heart burn, and stuffy nose. I am sure your thinking a stuffy nose is not a pregnancy symptom… BUT oh yes it is. Something about the lining of the nasal passages thinning blah blah blah.
Milestones: I know this is cheesy, but I have been looking since October for a stuffed lamb. I FINALLY found the perfect stuffed lamb for babyS this week at hallmark. The lambs tag name is‘Sammy’. I think it is very appropriate considering her name… ( hint hint ). Thanks to a friend on the guidance that she had no idea she was providing me 🙂
