21.5 Weeks - Baby BOY

21.5 weeks

My age: 32

How far along:  21 weeks 5 days

How big is baby:  Almost spaghetti squash-sh!

What have you been up to:  Just hangin' out, work has been mostly part time the last month or so but we've had mostly nice weather to enjoy.

Exercise/Activity Level:  Low.  Still on activity and pelvic rest.  Will have another ultra sound next week to see if my placenta has migrated up at all.

Maternity clothes:  I am starting to sport belly shirts in my non-maternity, even large ones, so I've been buying more maternity.  I learned this week that Nordstroms doesn't carry maternity in their store!  I was really annoyed with that fact because they do carry so much online.  So far my go to shops have been:  Asos, Pinkblush, Ross (only some carry maternity), and Zulily.  I love when Pinkblush is on Zulily.

Stretch marks:  Nope, but man am I itching already and want to try this Lush massage bar that pregnant people rave about.  Right now I use baby oil/gel and lotions.  I also want to try Bag Balm.

Belly Button: In but pretty stretched.

Sleep:   Not too shabby w/Unisom.  I didn't take it the night before the race last weekend, and my hips kept me up.  It's crazy because I don't think I had this with B3, just the pelvic pain which I don't have yet.

Best Moment of the Week:  Finding out we're having a BOY!!  That was a huge highlight!!

Worst Moment of the Week:  Just feeling soooo much bigger earlier this time around.  I did expect it to some degree, but it's still surprised me.  I feel like my butt and legs are already the size they were towards the end of my first pregnancy, and I've already outgrown all of my bras I wore in the 3rd trimester.  Gah.

Food cravings:  Just grapefruit anything.

Food aversions:  Not a whole lot here. 

Symptoms:  I am feeling pretty good right now, probably better than I felt at any point in my first pregnancy!  I do have the hip thing and my ribs feel like they are breaking, but really I will take it.  Oh, I have stopped wearing my wedding ring already.  In Vegas my fingers got swollen and I couldn't get it off!!  In my prenatal classes I remember the lady saying there are quite a few people who have to get their rings cut off in the ER, so stop wearing them if they get tight.  So I shall.

Movement: Yes, so much.  I swear he is breech, all the big "kicks" are down by my bladder.  He has been breech in the last two ultrasounds, so maybe I just make breech babies.

Gender:  BOY!!

What I’m looking forward to:  We dropped the price of our house again and have had lots of showings this weekend so hopefully we'll get it sold soon.  We'd love to get into a house and get going on the nursery for baby B2!  And I am dying to know if B2 will look like me, or like Ben (again).  :)

What I’m nervous about/praying for:  Just the regular that all will go well.

What I miss:  Running, sleeping on my back, an abundance of Crystal Light caffeine, running

Next appointment: 23 weeks, next week!
