The bump: Another little pop this week. I also feel like I can tell which position he's in because I can tell I'm sticking out at one point or my belly is a little lopsided.
How far along: 21 Weeks
How big is baby: From The Bump - The size of a pomegranate. At 10.5 inches and about 12.7 ounces, he's big enough now that you've probably been feeling his movements. As his digestive system preps for the outside world, he's manufacturing meconium -- the tarry black substance you'll find in his first dirty diaper (ew)!
Weight gain/loss: The cupcakes caught up to me this week. I'm up 3.2 pounds this week for a total of 8 pounds gained.
Stretch marks: None yet.
Belly button: Still a cavernous hole. My old piercing scar is starting to stretch out and I think I'm starting to get a linea negra.
Sleep: Ok-ish. I had been good about not drinking water too close to bed, but haven't been good about that lately. Had a rough night on Sunday/Monday. I was up at 4:30 and could not go back to sleep.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Still on a sweets kick.
Movement: Lots going on now. It's gone from little pops to more muscle twitches. I can feel them getting stronger, but John can't feel anything yet.
What I'm loving: Feeling stronger movements. Being past the halfway mark.
Symptoms: Still have some round ligament pain. I also get nosebleeds.
Best moment of the week: My impromptu "eating for two" final birthday dinner. I'm still full from it.
How I'm feeling: I've been feeling pretty good lately. I can tell my energy levels are up. Pretty much as long as I'm well rested and fed I'm ok.
