21 Week Interview
How far along? 21 weeks 1 day
Baby’s size? Length of a carrot, size of a cantaloupe. Read more.
Check up report: We had an appointment on Thursday, and baby is good! I am measuring more like 22 weeks - sweet! Heartbeat was 150. I got my pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine. More on that later. ;)
Days until next doc appointment? one month.
Total weight gain? Somewhere around 8-10 pounds.
Stretch marks? They’re kinda itchy. Bad sign?
Sleep: ugh. Although one new position I learned in Bradley class definitely helps me fall asleep!
Best moment this week: Hearing baby’s heartbeat and starting Bradley class! Learning so much already…even stretches that will help the birth canal open an extra 1-1.5cm..that’s huge.
Movement: Still little pinches and jabs occasionally. Want to feel more!
Food cravings: So many peaches and nectarines! Really, I need to slow down. Also, sweets. And salt.
Belly button: Cave like. You heard me right.
Happy or moody most of the time? Let’s be honest I’ve been a little irritable, easily excited…
Weekly symptoms: Heartburn has eased up a bit with the papaya extract. I’ve had some soreness in my pelvis and low back from my new stretches, which means it’s working! :P
