First off, I have to admit (even though I am ashamed) I watched Basketball Wives this week and I was ready to come unglued when I heard one of the "wives" say she was going to do IVF so she could have twins. Um, really? There are just no words.
How far along: 21 weeks
Size of baby: Baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. Her initial fluttering movements have now turned into full-fledged kicks and nudges. In other developments, baby's eyebrows and lids are present now and her womb is now stocked up with her lifetime supply of six million eggs (the number will drop to around one million by birth).
Maternity clothes: Almost all maternity clothes at this point.
Sleep: Oh sleep, how I miss you. I think no sleep during pregnancy just prepares you for no sleep after the baby is born.
Best moment of the week: The 20 week ultrasound was awesome! It was so nice to see her again and know that everything is ok ♥
Movement: Movement is getting stronger and I love it, I feel like it's her way of saying hi to me.
Symptoms: Still getting swollen feet/ankles when it's really hot, I have veins everywhere, and my tail bone still hurts.
Food cravings/aversions: BLT's are my favorite thing to eat right now- yum.
Gender: Girl ♥
Belly button in or out: Still in
Stretch marks: Nothing new
What I miss: I guess non-swollen feet but I can deal with it.
What I am looking forward to: Our first baby shower in a couple of weeks and meeting my wonderful blogger buddy at Journey Through IF :)
Weekly wisdom: hmmm, I don't have any this week.
