My little June Bugs @ 21 weeks
Picture was taken at work. Nice boring white walls ;)
How far along? 21 Weeks!
Baby's Size? The girls are now the size of a banana!
Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion, and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, if baby is a girl, her womb is now stocked up with her lifetime supply of six million eggs (the number will drop to around one million by birth).
Weight Gain? 13 lbs
Maternity Clothes? All maternity pants. I desperately need some shirts but I hate shopping so I keep putting it off.
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Belly button in or out? The top part is starting to poke out. Especially if I'm really full.
Foods I am loving? Everything. Ice water, lots and lots of ice.
Foods I am hating? Nothing new
Best moment this week? Getting the cribs set up with the bedding in!
Movement? Yes, I love it. DH has even been able to feel it. So amazing!
Symptoms? stuffy nose backaches, hips and shoulder pains while sleeping, and a new one this week. My hands have been swelling.
Genders? Two girls
What I miss? Not having to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.
What I'm looking forward to? My showers! Even though they are still almost two months away.
Weekly Wisdom: Don't sleep in your wedding ring.
Milestone: Being 5 months! woo hoo
