It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a weekly pregnancy update. This is mostly due to the fact that our laptop bit the dust and I had all my pregnancy journals saved on there. The computer guy took his sweet time fixing our laptop and even though we now have our laptop debugged, we still need to locate the disks to reload everything. Which will take awhile.
In the meantime, I’m deciding to carry on with my posts, least I forgot all the muy importante details of this pregancy.
So, here I am at 21 weeks. After last week of finding out the gender (psst…it’s a BOY!), J and I have been pretty excited. And I’ve been a little ambitious in the nursery decorating department. We now have the walls painted (just need to add the painted border) and the furniture ordered. I’m so excited to start putting the room together!
This week, I’ve finally started feeling the belly. In more ways than one. I’ve been feeling baby boy move and kick around for quite a few weeks now, but lately he’s been stretching and moving so much. It’s so fun to feel those movements and gives me a chance to really reflect on the little person growing inside me. Honestly, I still have to remind myself that I’m pregnant this time around. I’m just so busy with work and life in general that I’m not as preoccupied with being pregnant this time. So, those kicks are a nice little way to step back and think about the little guy once and awhile. I’ve also finally started to feel ‘big’. Oh, I know it only gets better from here on out, but I’ve found that getting up from a lying position now requires a little bit more effort. Speaking of that, I need to take a pic or two of the bump status. I always seem to forget to do that when I have an acceptable outfit on (read: not an outfit that I dive into as soon as I get home).
Besides the belly getting bigger, my only other complaint right now is these insane leg/foot cramps! They are so bad that they wake me out of my slumber some nights.
Other than that, I’ve been feeling really good. Over halfway there! 🙂
