(Dec. 17 through Dec. 23)
Symptoms: Heartburn’s a bitch.
Body changes: Is it possible I am smaller than I was at this point in my last pregnancy? I think I might be. I seemed to start off fast and furious with a bumptastic bump, but it seemed to really slow down. I don’t seem to be as ginormous as last time … I think?
Belly button: It’s reached that stretched-out stage. Still an innie, but a very large innie. You could fit a dime inside of it.
Baby movement: Still little teeny taps/kicks.
Cravings: Nothing really.
Aversions: Nothing notable.
High point: Going for our 3D ultrasound and learning our baby was a little GIRL! More details to come, I promise!
Low point: Trying to get lots of work done before Christmas. When you work for yourself, you don’t really get a week-long break like everyone else seems to …
How does this week compare to Week 21 during pregnancy #1? It sounds like Baby Boy was kicking a lot harder than Baby Girl at this point. Because he’s a boy? Because he’s wild? Or am I just not remembering clearly enough to compare the kicks? Who knows?
Baby preparation: Went through ALL of the crates of baby clothes and sorted out what will work for a girl, and what needs to be packed back up (in case of future boys). Began working on nursery plans (stay tuned). Bought my first baby-girl item (a pink sleeper printed with brighter pink hearts).
