~21 Weeks~

This week has flown by! I have no idea where it went! Last weekend we headed North for my oldest daughters softball tournament and had a blast! We visited with our closest friends and realized how much we miss Utah County. :( Especially now that they are there. Our 3 youngest girls decided to stay up there for the week to hang out with our friends and their kids. I am sad to admit that the second we hit the freeway I lost it.. I balled like a baby.. It made me so sad to leave them even though I knew they were in good hands and that they were going to have so much fun the week before they headed back to school. My oldest kids laughed at me and said, "geez, you should be happy we just got rid of half the kids!" Sad.. Maybe if I had gotten rid of the teenagers I would've been happy, Ha Ha, totally kidding!

This week has been a good week.  A little more tired then usual, but nothing too bad. Appetite is good, as always and I am starting to feel this handsome little boy more and more each day. Wednesday he actually kicked me so hard it woke me up out of a dead sleep! Startled me! :) It makes me sad though. I really wish that C was experiencing this miracle baby. I am sure when he gets bigger she will be able to feel & see him moving! :)

But other then the same old headaches we are doing great!

Weight Gain: 12 lbs. Total

Cravings: Strawberries, Peaches, Plums, Watermelon, Orange Peel Smoothies, Salads, Cottage Cheese, String Cheese, Cheese & Crackers, Any sandwich place known to man! :) I also just realized that I love sauerkraut! I know, kinda yuck right??!! Had a sandwich at Tom's Deli with it on it and it was amazing!

Symptoms: Heartburn, Bigger belly, Headaches/Migraines, Pelvic Pain (only if I'm on my feet for a long time)

What I Miss: Sleeping on my Tummy and having multiple clothes to wear. :)

Whoa Baby! :)  21 Weeks!

Their baby's the size of a pomegranate!
At 10.5 inches and about 12.7 ounces, he's big enough now that I've been feeling his rapid movements.

Their baby at 21 weeks
  • As his digestive system preps for the outside world, he's manufacturing meconium -- the tarry black substance you'll find in his first dirty diaper (ew)!

  1. The first glimpse of a child can make anyone emotional. I remember my friend, when she saw her baby's picture inside her womb, living there for 19 weeks she began to cry in happiness.
