21 Weeks (Baby #2)
How far along - 21 weeks, due November 30th.
Gender - A little gentleman.
Cravings - Red grapes and apples. The grapes finally looked delicious at the grocery, but I've already eaten them all. Iced coffee is back on the tasty list, although I wouldn't turn down a hot white chocolate mocha either. And, peanut butter mnms.
Aversions - Fish. Never again apparently, ha. Blech.
Best moment - Feeling a lot of movement all day long, but I especially enjoy it at the end of the day when I'm in bed. I've felt a few from the outside but Chris and Aria haven't had good timing yet to feel it as well. Hopefully it will happen soon.
Looking forward to - Another ultrasound on Friday. Even if it is internal, I am hoping the tech will also take a look with the regular method too.
Miss anything - Sitting on the floor comfortably. Aria and I did a quick fish craft on the floor and I regretted it the rest of the day. #oldladystatus
Movement - Finally. Yes. All day long. I adore it. Although, the sharp jabs to the bladder aren't my fave - I don't remember so many with Aria, but perhaps I blocked that out.
Other pregnancy symptoms - I woke up with what feels like a third of a head cold the other day. A bit sniffly, a bit stuffy, watery eyes, and a little headache. It could be anything, but I'll go ahead and blame the pregnancy. Still exhausted. I could fall asleep sitting up randomly throughout the day. Add in the lower back pain and that's about it. I mostly feel just fine, which hallelujah, just a tired fine.
Aria's thoughts - Lots of little comments. I was drinking water and she asked if the baby was drinking all my water. And she will ask what the baby is doing from time to time. She also asked if he was holding on to anything the other day. I thought that one was interesting.
I asked her what she thought the baby would look like. Do you think he will have blue eyes like you? She said maybe green like you or maybe blue like me. Do you think he will have blonde hair like you? No. Maybe pink. Or no hair like daddy.
