Baby is the size of a pomegranate, and is getting his digestive system ready for the outside world.
Photo thoughts: I feel like I have a cute little bump now Lots of people are still commenting that I look small for 21 weeks, or that they couldn’t tell I was pregnant. I think it really just depends on what I am wearing.
Food/cravings: All of the fruit. Seriously. For breakfast all I want is a big bowl of fruit, but I have to remember to also have something along with it or I will be starving again 30 mins later. Still eating all of my other usuals as well: peanut butter, eggs, yogurt, ice cream. Gosh I am so predictable. One thing I have noticed is that I have to watch out that I don’t overeat too much lately or I will end up with some major stomach pain. If I eat a huge meal for dinner I will inevitably regret it the next morning. This has been hard on me and my love of huge portion sizes
Movement: Baby boy is so active in there. I kind of love it. I could feel some thumps from the outside the other night, but Steve hasn’t felt it yet. Funny story: Steve has a sprained thumb from snowboarding in Colorado last week. (Not the funny part). When I felt the thumps from the outside I got really excited and tried to grab Steve’s hand so he could feel it too. Welp, I completely forgot about his bum thumb and grabbed right onto it and yanked. Poor guy was in so much pain. So, he has not felt his son move yet but hopefully he will soon.
Exercise: Four times last week. One run, one walk, one elliptical, and… one time to masters swim! Yes! I have been trying to get to masters for weeks now, but it is so.early.in.the.morning. Given the fact that I cannot sleep like a normal person, it has been near impossible for me to make it to the 6am practice. Last Friday I was up anyways (on and off since about 3am), so I figured I might as well go. It felt good to get my swim on, even if I had to take a 90 minute nap before noon to make up for it. So I guess I really mixed things up last week which is good, and I plan to keep up with that.
Other stuff: I have been pinteresting like crazy getting ideas for baby boy’s nursery, and I can’t wait to get started. It’s going to be a little while before I can really get into it because we have to do some remodeling/reorganizing of our office in order to make room for Phillip the treadmill who currently resides in the nursery. So far I am thinking of grey/aqua/orange for colors with a contemporary ocean/nautical theme. Even though I don’t have a creative bone in my body when it comes to decorating, I think between me and the other ladies in my family we will come up with something awesome.
We have also started discussing names, but so far haven’t agreed on anything for sure. Just when I think we are narrowing it down, I add a bunch more to the list, so this could be a long process. Although Steve vetoes most of them right off the bat which I guess makes it a little easier
