21 weeks

And another week passes us by! Since we've officially hit the half way point, we're cruising down hill now to the finish line. This week, you're the size of a pomegranate or the length of a carrot. Last week, all the books said you were the size of a mango. To me, a mango and pomegranate are pretty much the same size. I guess I need to brush up on my produce a bit. :)

You weigh about 3/4 of a pound and are about 10 1/2 inches long. And here's what you've been up to this week: your movements have turned into fill-fledged kicks and nudges and we may start to discover a pattern to your movement, and your eyebrows and lids are present now.

Symptoms: Oh man, the stuffy nose this week has been rough! I ended up going to the doctor because I was so plugged up, and it turned out to be a sinus infection. I've never had a sinus infection in my life! Along with the stuffy nose has come lots of bloody noses. Who honestly would've ever thought that stuffy/bloody noses were symptoms of pregnancy?

Anyways, my doctor just thought it was allergies that led into a sinus infection. I've got a couple meds for it now and am feeling much better. However, it pretty much wiped me out from Tuesday - Friday.

Sleep: Excellent! No problems here.

Best moment this week: Seeing my belly get bigger and bigger.

Miss Anything? Just being able to take an over the counter drug for headaches, allergies, runny nose, etc. Would've be so nice this week to just take something and get rid of all my ailments!

Movement: This week, your movement when from butterfly kicks, to serious karate chops! It was so surreal. I could sit and feel it forever. I was actually able to feel them from the outside with my hand. We tried for a bit for your dad to be able to feel them, but you were a little bit stubborn.

Looking forward to: The continued kicking. It seriously never, ever gets old. And for your dad to finally feel it!

And this weekend! Your aunt and uncle (plus Anna and Rob) are coming into town and I can not wait.

Next prenatal appointment: Ultrasound in a few hours!!! I'll do a separate post just about that.
