Dear Julien … Letters to my second son.

Well I really popped out this weekend. I had on one of my super-baggy t-shirts on and you could still see the Happy Baby Belly curve going on. Whee.

I guess this explains all the cravings for fatty foods – Pip was having a growth spurt! One of many that will continue to happen over the course of the next ~19 weeks.

I’m indulging baby a little this morning by having a cinnamon roll instead of my usual Cheerios. I’ll probably still have some cereal later, but gosh does this roll ever taste good.

I’ve been trying to be very careful about fat intake during this pregnancy, but the grilled turkey breasts and green veggies that are supposed to be so good for me and the baby and which I’d normally enjoy, taste like ashes in my mouth without a good dose of … cream sauce. I’ll continue to be judicious about my amounts and make my white sauce with low-fat milk instead of cream, but I guess we’re really at that point of “bring on the butter” in this pregnancy. Heh.

21 Weeks

Filed under: 21 Weeks,General,Prenatals — Beth @ 11:19

Appointment today went very well – nothing abnormal to report from the bloodwork I had done 2 weeks ago and the ultrasound looks good to the doc.

My due date has not been adjusted much – they tweaked it to a day earlier, so we’re still on target for the first week in August, just in time for Mom and Dad’s 34th wedding anniversary.

Baby’s heartbeat was strong and steady in the 150s.

I’m weighing in at 241lbs, which is just about right for baby weight gain at this stage.

Measuring right on target too at 25cm fundal height.

Got my paperwork for the GD test – need to do that between April 17th and May 8th and needs to be done at least a week before my 28 week appt. I’ll probably do that the last week of April on a the weekend so that I don’t have to have a blood draw done the day of, or the day before Vic’s birthday party. Doc is tracking my thyroid more closely this time – they want a test done on that every trimester, so I’ll get that done when they do my GD test too.

After my next appointment, we start going every 2-3 weeks instead of every month and in early July we’ll start going every week.
