*How far along?: 21 Weeks (From last Friday)
*Total weight gain: 10 lbs according to my scale, less according to the MW
*How big is baby?: The size of a banana. Was a cantelope last week, so this seems backwards to me.
*Sleep?: Wake up roughly 3 times a night to pee. Sleeping on my side only now which is not the best, but at least I'm sleeping.
*How are you feeling physically?: Well, heartburn kind of kicks my ass, and I'm having some gall bladder issues. I am trying to alter my diet, however food aversions are not helping that. Tired from working 6 days a week and traveling, but I have 1 more month-ish left, then its smooth sailing.
*How are you feeling emotionally?: Well, I am doing better with the weight gain and constantly questioning if I'm too big, or just right. I am accepting my growing belly better which is the way it should be. I am overall happy and excited. I don't want to rush this pregnancy but I can't wait to meet my little boy!!!
*Best moment this week?: Feeling more and more movement
*Movement?: Yes, increasing all of the time.
*Food cravings?: I just want carbs and italian food which is counter productive to the heart burn.
*Food aversions?: Chicken. Some meats but only if they are in things. The thought of a juicy burger does not sound appealing at all.
*Labor signs?: Nope
*What I miss: A glass or three of wine. A cold beer on a sunny day. Sleeping on my stomach.
*What I'm looking forward to: To see our little boy again!! We couldn't see the facial features all that well on the anatomy scan so we're having a repeat next week.
*Random Thoughts: I can't wait to know what this little man is going to look like, who he will take after, what kind of man he'll grow up to be.
