First of all, sorry for the delay this week. I haven’t seemed to fit in time to sit down and write.
How far along? 21 weeks and 2 days.
How big is baby? Baby is 10.5 inches (pomegranate) and weighs 12.7 ounces. Baby has grown a lot this week which explains why I suddenly feel very pregnant!
Total weight gain/loss? 6kg (13.2 lbs) overall. Hardly anything this week, although I feel bigger.
Maternity clothes? Bought myself a couple of new tops that are bigger in size. And also finally purchased a maternity tankini so I can go swimming.
Stretch marks: Nope, I’ve started putting bio oil on every now and then.
Sleep? I’m waking up around the same time every night which is annoying.
Best moment this week? Seeing our little bug again at our scan and seeing that baby is healthy :)
Movement? Again, I’ve been feeling little kicks every now and then but still not regular and that hard. Found out I have an anterior placenta (placenta is on the front wall of the uterus) which means the kicks are cushioned so that is probably why I don’t feel it that often.
Symptoms? Still been getting pretty bad headaches, have been to the opticians and have new glasses coming soon so I am hoping that they help a little bit. Also (might be TMI) today I woke up at my boobs had leaked a little bit.. Fun! Was very strange and a little gross lol!
Food cravings? I craved raw cake mix earlier this week. And also angel delight last night.
Food aversions? Nothing out of the ordinary. The smell of coffee still makes me feel sick.
Gender? Unfortunately we didn’t find out at our scan this week which we were both quite upset about, but hopefully we will be finding out on monday.
Labor signs? No.
Belly button in or out? In, however, its definitely stretching as it looks really hollow recently and you can tell its been stretched lo.
What I miss? Feeling normal! Lol!
What I’m looking forward to? We’ve decided to get a gender scan/3d scan privately on monday so I’m really looking forward to that to see baby again and in even more detail as well as find out if its a boy or girl! :D
Milestones? Having a healthy baby at the 20 week scan :D
About baby: You may soon feel like she’s practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby’s eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you’re having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.
Thanks for reading, see you next week.
