Week 21- July 15th - July 21st
Due Date: November 18, 2011
How Big is Baby: As big as a papaya OR for all you men- as big as an overinflated football.
Symptoms: I cannot complain! Seriously, if it wasn't for a stomach that gets caught in bathroom stalls or that bounces against the counter while I'm doing dishes (sorry if I bruised your head, son) I wouldn't even notice that I was pregnant. I always worried that I had the potential to be an unhappy pregnant woman, but I'm proving myself wrong. I'm elated! I'm not a total negative Nelly. Being pregnant is easy (so far). Sidenote: I'm still in the happy, joyous second trimester. Check back in three months when I'm ready to reach up there and pull my son out.
Cravings: Still no cravings, which is kinda a bummer. I love when people do cravings tables at their showers, but I'd have nothing to put on mine.
ETA: I did just have a craving for a watermelon margarita with a pack of twizzlers (to use as a straw of course).
Sleep: Now that I have a pregnancy pillow, sleep is as lovely as it's ever been. I should note, I've never been an insomniac (don't hate). Even before I got knocked up I could sleep a solid 10 hours without a hitch.
I Can't Live Without: Ugh. Water.. right before bed. I seriously need to drink a gallon every night at exactly bed time o'clock. This leads to many middle of the night bathroom trips.
I Miss: That darn watermelon martini. Tanning my back while at the pool.
I am Looking Forward to: Getting the nursery set up!
Milestones: We had another ultrasound on Tuesday because the little guy has a bit of reflux in his kidneys. It's not a huge thing, but it means extra ultrasounds which is okay with me!
Awkward Moments: My belly button is slowly turning inside out. Yikes.
Exercise: Treadmill and I just joined a prenatal yoga class in hopes of meeting some new friends in the area.
Diet: I'm trying not to worry about it. Although I'm gaining poundage like WOAH, my doctor hasn't said a word about it. I figure that if she's not worried, I'm not going to worry.
Movement: More kicks, but nothing consistent yet and nothing that John can detect.
Gender: It's a boy!
Labor Signs: It’s far too soon for this!
