(our little lady at 20 weeks, 1 day)
How far along: 21 weeks today.
Baby's size: Baby weighs about 3/4 of a pound and is approximately 10.5 inches long.
Boy or girl: It's a GIRL!
How am I feeling: Really tired. I just feel tired all the time. I cannot tell if I am not getting enough sleep or if it is just normal pregnancy tiredness. I've taken the last couple weeks off from working out because we have been so busy and I know I need to give my body a break because it is working hard growing our little lady. It is definitely hard letting go of the guilt of not working out... this is something I have always struggled with. I will get back into working out soon and hopefully this tired phase will lift a little.
Maternity clothes: I cannot wear anything that isn't stretchy. It is certainly convenient that I can wear dresses and stretchy skirts all summer though the heat is not so pleasant (and I assume it will only feel worse as I get bigger).
Sleep: Sleeping pretty well but obviously getting up a couple times a night to use the bathroom.
Baby movement: I am feeling her kick all the time now. I can feel her moving around before she gets a good kick in too. It is so cool to feel the movement building into a kick. She definitely is most active after I eat and in the evening, especially before I go to bed. Her kicks can be felt from the outside and I have even seen a couple kicks.
Food cravings: Absolutely noting. I've actually been having a really hard time coming up with stuff I want to eat. I just don't seem to be interested in food at all. It isn't that I have any aversions to foods its just that NOTHING sounds appealing. I just need someone else to tell me what to eat. This is driving Kevin crazy!
Food aversions: None.
What I miss: Not much actually... I am feeling pretty content these days.
Best moment: Finding out that Baby Fournie is a girl, obviously! Also having my parents feel her kick. It was really special that my dad got to feel her kick for the first time on Father's Day.
What I am looking forward to: Getting to spend time with lots of friends in the next couple months and sharing this little lady (and her kicks) with everyone. I also cannot wait to get in a bikini on the beach and soak up some rays... hmmm not so sure I am looking forward to everyone seeing me in a bikini but the sun will be nice!
