Pregnancy #2: 21 weeks

How Far Along: 21 weeks - It's been 6 weeks since I've updated on Baby #2 macy and I have 6 weeks left in my second trimester...this pregnancy is flying by.

Fruit: baby is the size of a large banana or the length of a carrot depending on which site you reference. :) You say carrot I say banana...it's all the same, really. Except a carrot isn't a fruit.


Size: three-quarters of a pound, about 10.5 inches long


Baby changes: Macy is now able to taste! As she swallows a bit of amniotic fluid each day she's eating whatever is on my menu. :)

Best Moment this week: Macy is on the move. She's much more active then I remember Anna being.

Gender: Girl! Macy Jane!

Movement: Lots of movement

Food Craving: Nothing really

What I miss: Sleeping through the night

Sleep: See above...I miss it


What I am looking forward to: My next appointment. We will get another sonogram because the 20 week anatomy scan Macy was facing my back and we couldn't get all the measurements they needed. Everything looks good. They are also goign to continue watching the placement of my placenta...it's close to ther cervix and they want to make sure it moves and isn't total placenta previa.


Symptoms: growing pains here and there, some braxton hicks if I'm really active that day, sore lower back....I think that's it for now. :)

 

Total weight gain/ Loss {ya right}: It's good and I'm not sure of the official number. I have a new doctor (totally sad my doctor of 18+ years isn't taking new pregnancy patients) but her nurse isn't good about telling me, "you've gained X amount" or really anything like my old doctor's nurse was.

Maternity clothes? Yes!

Have you started to show yet? yes

Labor signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood? I have my days :)
