I can’t wait to have the leftovers tonight! I made sure to make a ton of soup because I know how much Mike and I enjoy eating it. The soup really does bring me back to my childhood and I’ve had it every single year of my life. I can’t wait to share this soup tradition with our daughter. I think the most special moment will be when she can make the soup with me. I really cannot wait for that.
Speaking of which, I am 21 Weeks this week. Let’s get started with my recap!
21 Weeks Pregnant
Fun Facts About the Baby At 21 Weeks
How far along? 21 Weeks & 4 Days
Baby’s size? A pomegranate
Maternity clothes? Yes, please. They are much more comfortable. I bought a different dress to wear to my fancy work event and that was all the maternity clothes I bought this past week. I really need to get a pair of jean capris and summer/spring clothes because I barely have any.
Stretch marks? No, still using lotion.
Sleep: It’s hard to sleep. I still get up numerous times a night. I toss and turn a lot to get comfortable. I might need to start putting a small pillow under my stomach so I can get a better nights sleep.
Best moment this week: Clearing out a lot of the baby’s room to make room for her items. Also, feeling a lot of twitching this week that seems to be getting stronger each day. I hope that means I will feel a strong kick soon!
Miss Anything? No, not at all.
Movement: I feel a ton of twitching in my belly like I mentioned above. I still don’t feel strong kicks but I hope they are coming.
Food cravings: Cheese, Decaf Coffee, Decaf Iced Coffee, Texas Toast Croutons, Pineapple, Salad, Matzah with butter on it
Anything making you queasy or sick: The thought of Mexican food makes me not want to eat it for some reason and I love Mexican food.
Labor Signs: No, thank goodness!
Symptoms: Round ligament pain, tired, breakouts on my face/body, headaches, heartburn, charlie horses in my legs/feet
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I can be quite moody this week. I think it’s because of all of the stress I’m under.
Looking forward to: Feeling those kicks from the baby and surviving my work event next week.
So there you have my 21st Week recap! I don’t have my next appointment until the end of the month. I’m looking forward to that appointment only to hear the baby’s heartbeat again. That sound never gets old.
Alright, well have a lovely day!
