21 Weeks

2.06.2013


I am more than halfway! Yahoo! My belly keeps getting bigger. I swear it is bigger when I wake up in the morning than when I went to bed the night before. I have definitely started to feel our little baby move around, especially at night, right when I lay down for bed. I think I would take advantage of that extra space too though, so it doesn't bother me, in fact I like it. And now that I know what it feels like, I have been feeling the movements throughout the day as well. I image that all of the commotion means, "I'm doing great in here, just growing and getting bigger and stronger!" Jordan has even been able to feel the kicking a few times, which I think is really fun.

I'm still sick occasionally but probably only once or twice a week. I have a really hard time with anything touching my belly, like pants, or anything like that (sometimes even shirts too, if they're too tight), so I try to avoid them at all costs, unless I have to leave the house. Otherwise it's sweatpants and a T-shirt all day. I think I need to get some more maxi skirts and dresses, because those God-sent things don't touch the belly.

It has gotten a little bit harder to move around. I can't bend over as easily, or stand up (without help or a bit of a struggle) if I'm on the ground. Last week, I was checking out at the grocery store and I tried to move from the front of my cart to the back of my cart and my belly almost didn't let me squeeze past in the little walkway between checkout stations. I was caught off guard and surprised by how big my belly felt in that moment. No aches or pains anywhere (like my feet or back) which I am still very happy about. And speaking of feet, my ankles are still the correct size, which is also great. Things are going great!

P.S. If you would like a Valentine's Card, please email me your address, before Friday, so I can get them in the mail this weekend!

  2. So fun to read! I always felt like my belly was smaller in the morning and huge at night after I had gone a whole day eating haha. And the whole not being able to bend over, etc...I feel like that happens all of a sudden! I remember waking up one day and not really being able to bend over and tie my shoes without sitting down and lifting my foot up - so awkward!
