How far along are you?
I am 21 weeks along.
Best Moment this week?
My midwife appointment!
None this week.
Baby is growing well as usual.
Sciatica, a few leg cramps (I am going to up my cal/mag!), and my tummy is tender to bumps and such.
I had a midwife appointment on Monday. I think it is wonderful that she comes to my house. 🙂 The checkup went well. I am measuring a bout 1-2cm big, but the baby is laying high and transverse. (sideways) My children always get a kick out of the blood pressure cuff- my blood pressure was a bit lower than usual, but I knew it would be since I was pretty tired that day. (90/50) Normal for me is about 105/58. Of course the midwife thought this was great since they worry more about high blood pressure! We had a hard time finding the baby’s heartbeat since- it kept kicking at the dopplar. 😉 (no worries, right!!!) After finally finding it, it sounded like a galloping horse. Lillon and Richie wanted to hear their heartbeats, so she put the dopplar over their hearts. Lillon had a demure, pitterpat and Richie’s was loud and fast- big surprise! 😉
Weight gain (or loss)?
Still gaining my pound a week.
None this week.
What Made Me Cry This Week?
No tears this week.
Who sleeps well when they are pregnant and have small children?!
I sewed up a shirt and modified a long sleeve nightgown into a sleeveless maternity dress. My husband actually noticed and said they looked nice. (and he didn’t know I sewed them!) Of course, what I have been wearing around home has looked pretty ratty. 🙁 It has been very hot and the few shirts I have that fit require a cami under them. Two shirts=HOT! So thankful for my sewing machine!
Lots of movement!
What I miss….
What I’m looking forward to….
Unfortunately, not Zzzzzz’s! I would have to say feeling comfortable again.
Just a few Braxton-hicks.
Thoughts from the family….
I think Richie is most excited. He thinks we need another girl. Strange child!
Something I’m Excited About….
I am heading a few hours north to a ladies craft day next weekend. 🙂 NO CHILDREN! I can’t remember the last time I spent the day with no children! I suspect I will be missing them by the time I get home. 🙂 We will be sewing cloth diapers.
Pregnancy related books you are reading….
No reading yet this time around. I will get to it one of these days. I am trying not to think about labor at this point.
