21 Weeks (February 26, 2012)
How Far Along: 21 Weeks
Size of baby: According to babycenter.com the baby is about the size of a carrot. He is 10 1/2 inches in length and 3/4 of a pound.
How your baby's growing:
You may soon feel like he's practicing martial arts as he initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to his activity as you get to know him better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained 20 lbs, as of my OB appt last week week. I worry that it is too much but my OB assured me that it is all good and to just relax, lol.
Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothing with the exception to some sweat pants and hubby's clothing, lol.
Gender: Boy!!! Colin Wilson.
Movement: Yep, I felt him kick at work the other night and actually recognized that it was him. That made me happy. I'm still not feeling a ton of movement because my placenta is positioned anteriorly--hopefully I'll start feeling more soon.
What I miss: Moving better. I feel huge.
Sleep: Ok, I am getting uncomfortable and flip from side to side...often!
Symptoms: I pee a lot and I'm huge. It was raining this morning as I was leaving the hospital so we jogged to our cars--holy crap, a.) it felt like the baby was going to fall out and b.) I was huffing and puffing like a 4 pack a day smoker.
Cravings: I got my six boxes of girl scout cookies I ordered=happy preggo lady!
Best Moment this week: Feeling little man distinctively kick me.
What I am looking forward to: Feeling little man move around more often.
