:: 21 ::

So, I realize that I've only been prego posting every other week.  The weekly stuff was getting a little tedious.  I also realize that all of your lives and very existence hinge on my weekly pregnancy postings, so I will try to pick it up weekly again.  I got it.  I getchya.  Ok, excuse my narcissism.  On to another week, another posting.  Over the hump.  Over halfway there!  Here are the stats:

baby boy:

- now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — a banana.

- initial fluttering movements have turned into full-fledged kicks and nudges (keeping me awake at times).

- eyebrows and lids are present now

21 weeks

Me:

- getting bigger (see 20 wk belly pic in previous post)

- as stated above, feeling lots of turns, kicks and quick movements.  able to feel it from the outside at times.

- sleeping pretty well still.  haven't had to take very many muscle relaxers, thanks to lots of help from ryan with lifting and stuff.

- appetite slowly returning, with the exception of beef.  still.  poor ryan.  he hasn't had beef in awhile.

- loving the fall weather: rain, wind, cold....(unrelated, i know, but i had to share)

- feeling some tingling in my fingers as of late and hoping i don't get the carpal tunnel i had with aidan.  dear God, please.  i couldn't even turn doorknobs.

- trying to wrap my head around the fact that christmas is in, like, 2 MONTHS.  (also unrelated, but it still freaks me out)

- nesting is setting in early.  everything bugs me.  i want to clean/overhaul my entire house.  or move.  or both.  maybe i'll settle for rearranging furniture (i love you, ryan)

have a great week!
