21 Weeks

Kidney stone situation is the same. It hasn’t caused any pain for the last two weeks. It would be great if stayed that way, but I know it’s only a matter of time.

We did end up getting the amino results last week. She called right as I was heading out the door to pick up the kids. She had all good news. Baby boy’s results were all perfect and she said she has no reason to think he will be anything other than totally healthy. It was great to hear that news and with it IFs decided they felt comfortable telling their family and friends over the weekend that they’re expecting!

We had the anatomy scan last week and he passed with flying colors. All his measurements were on track and he looked great!

Weekly Update:

How far along: 21 Weeks

How big is baby: Size of a baby bok choy, about 10.5in/26.7cm

Symptoms: This last week I’ve been feeling pretty good. My stomach has been feeling pretty good, but my lower GI tract has been messed up the last couple weeks, but I’m not sure why. I’m trying different things to help, but haven’t found it yet.

Movement: He has had some kicks strong enough that I’ve been able to feel them with my hand. He is an active little guy, and makes the ultrasound techs work for the images they need

Sleep: I finally caved and took a Tylenol PM last night because I haven’t been sleeping well and it was catching up with me. I finally got a good night’s sleep last night and it felt great. I’m still doing the Epson salt baths before bed most nights.

Food cravings?  No real strong cravings lately. Fruity candy made a comeback, but not as strong as before

Food Aversions? I don’t think I’ve had any aversions this week

Anything making you queasy or sick? eating too much

Best moment of the week? Getting the good amino results, having the anatomy scan, and watching my son play his first soccer game last weekend

Next appointment:  My next OB appt is Oct. 3rd

He’s really out there today!
