I think the time has come that I officially look pregnant! I am really starting to feel little babe move around a lot, mostly at work after I've eaten something. Today I felt the first kick or punch that made me stop what I was doing it was so strong. It didn't hurt or anything it's just a weird feeling and kind of shocked me. This last week was a pretty good one and I am just feeling more and more stretched out. The funny thing is I feel like my belly is so big, but I have 19 more weeks and the baby needs to gain about 6 more pounds before it's all over! Andrez and I are loving my growing and laugh everyday about how all of the changes I am going through.
Here's an update on this last week!
How Far Along: 21 weeks (the baby is the length of a carrot and weighs about 11oz or so)
Total Weight Gain: I haven't weighed myself this week, but I go to my midwife next week, so I'll have to report back then.
Maternity Clothes: Yes! I am going to order some more with my Gap gift cards from Christmas and some Gap Cash I earned from an order earlier this month. Gap maternity leggings are the bees knees!
Sleep: I have been having some weird dreams lately! I have been sleeping through the night but seem to wake up about an hour or so before my alarm every morning. I'll take the 6-7 hours straight before that though.
Cravings: Still tacos. In fact, on Taco Tuesday this week, I ate 7, yes 7, tacos! My appetite is out of control. I am a bottomless pit! I told my parents that I will be eating a meal and I almost get hungry again before my meal is over. Andrez has been very supportive and tells me to eat to enjoy what I want because my body obviously needs it.
I am also craving citrus fruits, salmon, and fruit Popsicles.
Movement: Yes! Still not consistent at all, but definitely feeling stronger kicks and more each day!
Mood: Good. This was a good week emotionally. I am really loving being pregnant right now and am trying to enjoy each and every day. I am really looking forward to my pre-natal yoga class this weekend, as well as, the Superbowl!
Symptoms: Overall, most pregnancy symptoms have disappeared. Not to be too TMI, but my boobs have started to hurt again. They are going through some changes and I can feel them! I woke up from boob pain last night, in fact! I also get random cramps and pulling pains, which are round ligament pains that come from my uterus and everything stretching to accommodate my growing baby. Other than that, I feel great!
