How far along? 21 Weeks
How big is baby? 10.5 inches from head to toe!
Weight gain? In the last 2 weeks I gained 5 entire pounds, doubling my pregnancy weight gain. Oops. I blame 11 days of home cooked meals that I didn’t have to make, 3 of which were Christmas Dinners. It’s all OK, because my baby book says by this week I should have gained 10-12 pounds. Go me!
Symptoms? Minor heartburn and side pain.
Can we talk about my belly button? It’s getting shallow..and itchy.
Stretch marks: Nope! I’ve decided the marks on my legs were not stretch marks. I put oil on them for a week and now they are gone. YAY!
Food cravings? I crave all food. My appetite has really increased these last 2 weeks…hence the weight gain?
Movement? Here and there. I think I can feel the baby stretching now.
What I am looking forward to? Viability Week in 3 weeks! My mom’s visit in 9 days! We are going to start and finish the nursery while she is here. She just emailed me this morning saying she’s extending her trip by 4 more days to give us more time.
Pregnancy moments with John:
John now pats my belly and talks to Henry’s placenta (since the placenta is on top of Henry). He says “Hello Henry’s placenta” ect. Which I think is really cute.
|Sorry for the photo. I forgot to take one until I was getting ready for bed. I’m going to try to take a nicer one in front of the Christmas tree tomorrow!|
