How far along: 21 Weeks! We’re past the halfway point.
Size of baby: Baby is the size of an endive, or if you’re like me and have no idea what that is, it’s the size of a baseball hat.
Gender: It’s a Boy!
Exciting developmental things: He has bone marrow, and his pancreas is now making it’s own hormones. He sleeps 14 hours out of the day, and is having REM sleep and dreaming.
Doctor’s Appointments: We have another doctor’s appointment on Monday to see Wade for the first time since 10 weeks.
Weight Gain: Still just 8 pounds.
Stretch Marks: None yet!
Movement: There have been a few moments where we could feel movement this week. TJ even felt him move last night. I always thought he was always on my left side, but yesterday I’m pretty sure he flipped to the right. That side of my stomach is even out further than the left.
How I’m Feeling: I am feeling great. I know that my energy has come back full force like the books say it might. I still sleep wonderfully.
Miss Anything?: I miss fitting in my clothes. I would like to buy Wade a wardrobe instead of me.
Sleep: I sleep perfectly every single night. I could sleep most of the day as well I think.
Food: Still don’t want a whole lot of pork. I think I could last this whole pregnancy as a vegetarian and be fine. The only things I crave are freeze pops, dum dum suckers, Pelican’s, and sometimes vegetables.
Workouts: We put the boys in training 2 weeks ago. So, we definitely get our workout every Saturday. And, practicing with them at home has been tough as well.
Clothes: I can’t wait until it’s consistently warm so I can wear dresses during the week.
Baby Items: We’ve bought the stroller that goes with the car seat. Tiffany is graciously giving us Alijah’s crib. So, that will help us move along with his nursery. I also picked a paint color last weekend.
Best Moment This Week: Definitely feeling him move was the best moment.
Looking Forward To: I can’t wait to see our little Wade on Monday.
