21 Weeks

So the 20 week ultrasound obviously went well since we found out Baby C is a boy :)  However, I do have to go back in 2 weeks for a follow-up ultrasound since the tech was having a hard time seeing his kidneys and stomach.  She told me it was probably because I did not eat for a few hours prior (which was true, I was starving and my stomach was grumbling the entire time during the scan).  It made me a little worried but my doctor said all my bloodwork has come back normal so I just need to make sure to eat an hour before next time.  At least it will give me an excuse to see my baby boy again!

After our appointment we went to Longhorn’s for dinner and then to Target for a few things.  I did pick up a couple of little boy clothes, but the main reason for going was to get Puff’s with lotion and stock up on Vitamin Water Zero’s.  Yep, I knew Hubby’s cold from last week was finally hitting me Friday night.  Let’s just say being sick normally is bad enough, but being sick when being preggo is ten times worse.  No Nyquil means I have been getting no sleep.  And then having to pee after drinking all this OJ and water plus having a baby pushing on my bladder makes relaxing in bed not fun.  Especially when I sneezed twice in a row, I almost peed myself.  ALMOST.  I’ve been trying to lay low and do absolutely nothing but as of today I’m still only feeling so-so.   

  • How far along?: 21 weeks
  • Baby is the size of a:  length of a large banana
  • Total weight gain/loss:  +10-12 pound range
  • The Bump: I don’t think I’ve gotten much bigger, but I did notice a couple stretch marks on my tummy are getting longer (ugh they were already there well before I was preggo).  I’m using cocoa butter lotion every morning and then trying out Burt Bee’s Mama Bee’s oil at night to see if it will help with moisturizing.
  • Symptoms: Nothing new this week other than an itchy belly…just cold symptoms :)
  • Food Cravings:  Bagels.  English muffins.  Carbs in general.   
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: I made chicken taquitos for the Superbowl and was spreading a layer of refried beans onto each tortilla before adding the chicken mixture.  The smell of the refried beans almost made me puke (I don’t think having the cold helped).  Let’s just say Hubby had to finish that batch.
  • Sleep: This week it’s been horrible but not really because of Baby C. 
  • What I miss:  Being able to take meds when you get sick.  And beer. 
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: On
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet:  Discussed a few but of course no agreements yet.  We do have some maybe’s, though, which is progress!
  • Movement: I feel more movement each day but still not constant.
  • Maternity Clothes: Wearing mostly maternity stuff now.
  • Labor Signs: N/A
  • Best Moment of the Week: Finding out Baby C’s sex!!!  Ahhh I’m so excited to have a little guy, I cannot wait!
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Babymoon is coming up!
