Look at us baby girl! We are on the downward slope now…happy 21 weeks!!! 😀
And yes I realize I never blogged about your 20 weeks development so I’ll combine it with your 21 weeks in a few days, no worries!
Just as an aside…you were having a party today. I had the music blasting in my car as I was driving home and you were punching and kicking up a storm! My belly was moving all over the place I kept poking you back and that was super fun! Mommy was laughing hysterically at how crazy you got!! I think you might be a teeny dancer in there…you loved the music!!
Here’s what you look like from the outside this week (pssst I might need to find a new spot to do photos…too many shadows)
Symptoms: Fetal movement!!!, Sciatica, fluttery chest anxiety, tight/tingly breasts (this is so weird), hungry!, emotional/hormonal, vivid dreams, round ligament pain
Weight Gain: 6.5lbs (look at us go!! woohoo!!)
Here is what babycenter.com has to say about your development this week:
Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she’s practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby’s eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you’re having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.
Now that we’re on the other side of the halfway mark it feels like it’s going super fast!! Wahhh, I love being pregnant with you, but I also can’t wait to meet you and stare into your eyes. Ahhh, I love you, monkey!
