How far along? 21w2d
How big is baby? Banana! 10.5 inches and 12.2 ounces; his digestive system is working hard and beginning to create meconium for his first diaper change.
Physical differences from last week? Didn't weigh in this week, but I'm sure I gained. Some of my regular pants are starting to get tight, but most of my shorts still fit comfortably. My belly and incision are super itchy; belly button is now flat and no new stretch marks to report.
How I'm feeling? Nesting, like whoa. Sleep has become such a low priority - I'd rather clean. Trips to the bathroom seem to have increased; having loads of BH contractions between the hours of 5:00-7:00 pm (when I'm chasing Lucy); and still moving around pretty easily. We walked three nights this week, and I was NOT strict enough with my diet. All of my cravings are sweet; I almost always want candy and I've wanted a muffin for weeks. I finally caved and got a muffin on Friday. It was wonderful, but I felt horribly guilty afterward.
What's been on my mind? Started shopping for a second freezer; reupholstering my current glider vs. buying a new one; and I finally started researching baby names. I've made it through the letter F and still haven't found the perfect name, though there are several contenders.
What I'm looking forward to? Painting the nursery. Hopefully it'll happen fairly soon... I have all the paint and supplies. Can't wait to get the furniture rearranged and see it come together!
Best moment this week? Babe kicked while I was rocking Lucy on Thursday night, and I'm positive she felt it because she jumped up and looked at me.
