21 Weeks Preggo Update

We went to our 20 week appointment last week and it was such an amazing day.  The ultrasound we had checked for the baby's weight, size, checking for any problems, etc.  Since we already knew our baby is a boy, my main concern was that he was okay.  Thankfully, our baby boy is doing great!  He is on the larger side so I was told my due date may be a week earlier which would put me at 22 1/2 weeks today.  I'm not surprised he's a big baby since I was born at 11 pounds.  That's right people, 11 flipping pounds!  My grandfather said I came out ready to start kindergarten :-)

The best moment of the ultrasound was when we saw him "eating."  It was so cute to see his little mouth moving and see him stretching his arms. In fact, he was moving so much that the tech was chasing him around with the wand and I had to then move on my sides to see if he would settle down.  The tech asked me what I ate for breakfast because she usually has to give women something sugary to drink to get the baby moving but not me!  I was too embarrassed to tell her what I really ate for breakfast...a piece of flan...I mean what else would you expect me to eat for breakfast?  I was an 11 pound baby after all.

Weight Gain?:  I've gained a total of 5 pounds thus far.  I'm positive I've gained 5 more pounds since last week or else I'm extremely bloated/swollen (TMI).

Maternity Clothes?:  Maternity skirts, pants, and dresses are my saviors.

Symptoms?:  HEARTBURN and ACID REFLUX!!!  I broke down and got a prescription because it was keeping me up all night and making it difficult to function during the day.  I'm also getting really swollen at the end of the day.

Sleep?:  Same as other weeks so I copy pasted:  "Yes and no.  I sleep in spurts of 2 hours here or 3 hours there.  My husband bought me a Snoogle but he seems to use it more than me."

Do I miss anything?:  Not really.

Movement?:  Lots of fluttering and moving from this little guy but I can't wait to feel a real kick!

Anything making you sick or queasy?:  I still can't stand air fresheners.

Food cravings?:  Japanese food, olives, and brownies.

Have you started to show?:  Oh yes.

Boy or a Girl?:  Baby BOY Lucas

Best Moment This Week?:  Seeing my little man "eating" and stretching on the ultrasound :-)
