Wow! Time is starting to fly by. I’m starting to get a little nervous about getting all my schoolwork done in time. But it will happen. I am at 21 weeks now, so a more than halfway done. Last week for the first time someone stopped and asked me “Are you having a baby?” That made me happy. I finally look pregnant enough that it’s safe to ask. It’s happened a couple more times since.
Baby boy weighed 12 oz. 10 days ago, I’m sure he’s bigger now. I forgot to ask the length, but around 11 inches.
I’ve gained 7 or 8 pounds so far. I like food again. No real cravings though, which is a disappointment I must say. Cravings make meal planning much easier.
I joined on online mom’s group in our neighborhood, and it’s been great so far. I picked up a bag of maternity clothes from there to go along with what friends have given me and the few things I bought. I bought the blue shirt in the picture last week, I figure I’m a boy mom, I need something blue. I also scored a baby bathtub, which is being put to good use holding the baby items that are starting to accumulate.
Motion sickness is still going strong, but I am taking zofran before car trips now, and that is amazing stuff. I’m also still having trouble sleeping, but the sleep pillow I bought is at least keeping me on my side. I never realized how nice it feels to lay on my back until I couldn’t do it anymore.
Baby boy is moving and I can feel it now. There were a couple of jabs over the weekend that Rob could feel too. That is lots of fun.
I’m starting to “nest” I spent a few hours on Sunday afternoon cleaning out the closet and clutter in the nursery/office. There is still some work to be done, but a crib is now conceivable. I also have a long list of house projects. Rob says I need to prioritize, and be ok that they won’t all get done. I can deal with that.
