Week 21 – A Pregnancy Update Jun 12

A quick update on how #2 and I are doing, with a little inspiration from Joanna and Victoria. šŸ˜‰

*How far along?: 21 weeks today

*Total weight gain: About 6 pounds

*How big is baby?: The size of a banana, approx 10.5 inches and 12.7 oz

*Sleep?: Still waking up a couple times each night, but it’s only a minor inconvenience

*Best moment this week?: My big girl’s pool party with some of her classmates from last year. It was so cute to see them all together again (even if it’s only been 2 weeks), and really showed that I need to suck it up and register her for a SafeStart swim program instead of Parent/Child classes. The other kids are MUCH better swimmers!

*Movement?: Every night, and a few random flutters during the day.

*Food cravings?: Always carbs. First trimester was baked potatoes, and now it’s bagels. I can’t remember the last time I ate this many bagels…

*Stretchmarks?: Nothing new šŸ˜‰

*Labor signs?: Negatory

*Belly button in or out?: Still in!

*What I miss: The ability to go out AND get things done at home. It seems like I have to choose one over the other thanks to fatigue. šŸ™

*Complaints: Nothing big, I’m just a lil whiny about the general downside of pregnancy. Back pain, fatigue, not being able to pick up and carry my daughter as often as she’d like.

*What Iā€™m looking forward to: Our Disney weekend! We’ll be staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge. SO excited to have a Savanna view room so the animals can come visit us. šŸ˜€

*Nursery Progress: None. I just figured out a new layout for their room (the girls have to share), and now I need to get organizing and shopping for either a crib for #2 or a big girl bed for #1.

*What items do you still need to buy for baby?: Everything. I can re-use a lot from my older daughter, but there are a few things that either can’t be re-used, can’t be shared, or are just better options than what I did the first time around. That will get sorted out in the coming weeks as well.

      Yeah, the nausea and heartburn was HORRIBLE the first trimester and I pretty much lived on water, milk and a baked potato a day. Not recommended, but it did help with the weight. I expect to gain much more as time goes on…
