21 Weeks

Saturday, March 31, 2012


How far along? 21 weeks
Due Date: August 11, 2012, my early prediction is that she will arrive on July 22, 2012
Total weight gain: none since my last doctor's visit
Maternity clothes? Not yet...still just yoga pants and maxi dresses and one trusty pair of J Crew khakis that still button :)
Stretch marks? No...my Mustela is worth the price so far
Sleep: Like a rock!
Best moment this week:  Our 20 week checkup...seeing all of Miss Caroline's limbs, organs, and other parts all healthy and in working order! She is currently breech and anterior, neither of which they tell me is dangerous or abnormal.  She will most likely flip from the breech position at some point.
Miss Anything? Still miss being comfortable working out harder like with Crossfit or P90X, but it's not worth it if it's something that could hurt the baby, so I just workout with Pure Barre, which is amazing, and walking as well as some light weights
Movement: She is very active after I work out, as well as at night. The doctor said I shouldn't expect to feel her until later since she is anterior, but I do feel her with quite a bit of regularity now.
Food cravings: Nothing really specific lately. Still trying to eat very healthy and limit sweet treats.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still no, hopefully that won't change.
Gender: Baby Girl
Symptoms: Movement, still occasional back pain, mostly on days I don't work out or sit for too long
Belly Button: Still in
Rings: On
Happy or Moody: Happy. Finding out the baby and myself are both healthy is reason enough for everything to be right with the world, at least for today :)
Pregnancy Pet Peeve: The tummy touchers are coming out in full force! It happened to me twice in one day. I'm going to start touching back now haha
Looking forward to: Non-Baby: The UK vs UofL game is today, or as it's now being called, the second Civil War! Baby: Stripping and re-staining the dresser and crib for the nursery this week or next. I'll post pics as we get started on the nursery, but it's my goal to have it finished by mid to late May. Oh, and I'm starting a Preggercise group fitness class at a local fitness studio in town, Burn Personal Training. There are LOTS of pregnant people around these parts, so hopefully we'll have a great turnout for it!
