Week 21

Week 21- July 8th - July 14th

Due Date: November 18, 2011

How Big is Baby: As big as a banana-- which seems like 1/3 of the size of a cantaloupe, but I'm no doctor.

Symptoms: Things are not too bad at all. I feel great almost everyday!

Cravings: No cravings either. I'm a boring pregnant lady.

Sleep: Still great! Thank you lord.

I Can't Live Without: Drinks. I cannot get enough liquid.

I Miss: Fair rides. We went to the fair last weekend and I had to sit out of everything. Also, I miss laying on my stomach at the pool.

I am Looking Forward to: Meeting baby!

Milestones: He's been kicking me a lot lately-- we picked out his baby bedding-- we picked out paint colors-- my mother and I found a 25 dollar solid wood dresser at a yard sale that we've refinished into a darling changing table-- and the registry is done!

Awkward Moments: Lord. My husband is so awkward (i.e. he tries to be funny). At our 7 week appointment he was joking around with the dildo cam condoms. On Tuesday, we had our breastfeeding class. I had to tell him to refrain from speaking altogether after he tried to find boobs in the book and pretended to breastfeed a plastic doll.

Also, I'm fed up with people and their dumb comments. It's like people cannot see a pregnant person without making some idiotic comment about size. Since becoming pregnant myself, I have learned that even if a woman has gained 34523452343 pounds and looks like hell, I will ONLY tell her how small and beautiful she looks. On Wednesday, I went to a work shop for work. While there, some dumbass troll of a woman that I've seen ONCE in my entire life asked me how far along I was. After I told her she said, "OH MY GOD. YOU ARE HUGE. I wasn't even that huge when I was 9 months." I promptly turned around and walked out of her presence. Next person that says anything like that to me will be punched in the face. The end.

Exercise: I've been trying to do 2 miles on the treadmill most days.

Diet: It depresses me. I've been gaining like a lb a week and I always promise to start watching what I eat after I step off the scale. Then I see candy and ice cream and cave. Sob. I lack self control.

Movement: He has officially made his presence known and he kicks me numerous times per day! It's actually kind of scary and has taken my breath away by surprise.

Gender: It's a boy!

Labor Signs: It’s far too soon for this!

Toodles, gotta run.

I have to go stuff myself with fried seafood with the girls.

(and THIS is why my diet sucks).

I think you look great (and I'm not just saying that)! I have always wondered why any woman who has ever had kids would say anything other than "you look great" or something similar to anyone who is expecting. I don't think anyone would question that!

You're right. When it comes to pregnant women, people are dumb. I heard everything from you're SO small to OMG you're HUGE! Literally in the same day. Idiots.

I think you look great!

You look fabulous. Eat and enjoy...and just breastfeed for a year. You will be skinnier then befor you got preggo. No point in stressing now, it is a females one chance in life to eat without guilt. Next time someone asks yiu how far along you are...tell them you are not pregnant...that'll stump them

The Kings said...

WOW past the half way mark, soooo exciting!!! I think you look just great!!!

Melissa said...

UM you are NOT huge! You look adorable and perfectly normal for 21 weeks.

Your husband sounds a lot like mine! We accidentally slept through our breastfeeding class (big mistake because it was really hard at the beginning) but if we went, I can so see him doing the same things as your husband did!

Baby movement is the best! I'm glad you can feel him kicking around and stuff now!

I hope you'll post pictures of the nursery when you're done with it!

Dancy said...

Well I think you look great & I'm not just saying that. I hope I look like you when I get pregnant - I'm afraid I might turn into a whale. Like I said in my email should've roundhouse kicked her in the face. Want me to come do it?

Also - your hubs is mad funny! At least you know he'll make you laugh when you're in the hosp. ;)

Baby Mama said...

you look great and I totally agree. Everyone should shut their mouths around prego ladies except to say they look good. No exceptions!

Jennifer said...

Oh good are so NOT huge! People need to keep their rude comments to themselves!

Ashley said...

I've dreaded becoming pregnant for a few reasons - birth, weight, and COMMENTS! I'm dreading that. I hate stupid people and their comments. I'm so gonna be "hold me back" kind of attitude, I know it. Good luck! Walking away on them will let them know you aren't putting up with their comments. I guess I'm gonna have to google "decent" ways of handling this because honestly.. punching them would be at the top of my list too! lol I know someone who was asked by a stranger to rub her belly, she looked at them and asked "Can I rub yours?" and they sobered up and walked away. lol

I think you are looking pretty darn adorable. Just sayin...
