(length of a carrot)
How Far Along: 21 weeks! MORE than 1/2 way!
Size of baby: Your baby now weighs about 3/4ths of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot.
My baby this week (from babycenter.com): You may soon feel like he's practicing martial arts as his initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to his activity as you get to know him better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now.
Stretch Marks: No.
Sleep: It has been good since we have been in our inlaws king size bed. The last two nights have been in a queen size bed (now that the inlaws are home) and it has been horrible. Thursday night was the worst! I went to the bathroom and got back to the bedroom only to knock my lipgloss off the night stand. Of course I HAD to have it so I started searching, in the dark, with no glasses for it. Mike came over to help me and of course neither of us could find it. On top of it all, I was absolutely S-T-A-R-V-I-N-G so he grabbed me some cookies (nutritional, right?) from the kitchen. It barely made a dent. Took me forever to fall back asleep after all that drama!!!
Best Moment of the Week: Several.... 1. Celebrating Mother's Day pregnant. 2. Mike felt the baby kick!!!! 3. Registering at Babies R Us (although this was more like a chore, not that much fun.) 4. We chose a name!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Movement: Yes. Gradually gained strength.
Food cravings: Not specific cravings but I am often ravenous and need food ASAP.
What I Miss: My house still! We are staying with our inlaws while a few rooms are painted (including the nursery) and the wood floors in the kitchen are refinished.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Getting the shower invitations mailed out.
Milestones: Mike feeling the baby kick on Thursday.
Emotions: My temper was pretty short during my crappy sleep story up above.
Symptoms: Nothing new. My belly is growing exponentially though!
