20 and 21 weeks combo

Since I was out of town, I really didn't even have time to sit down and do my weekly prego update.  I was running everywhere after Harper.  It is hard chasing her all day and being pregnant.  The girl does NOT sit still-ever.  Everywhere I go I hear two things:  1. "Boy, she sure has a lot of energy, huh?" and 2. "Boy, you're going to have your hands full with another one."  Yeah, thanks peeps for making me feel better. :)

Okay, so back to the baby in my belly.  I'll combo these two weeks.  My 20 week picture was taken with my phone and is a little blah because my camera was dead and I was out of town.  I'll take the 21 week picture tomorrow.  Our baby is 21 weeks and 3 days along and is kicking up a storm!  She's kicking now as I type.  She also now has eyebrows!

  • Baby's Size:  10 1/2 inches and 3/4 of a pound-about the size of a carrot.  And I love carrots!  
  • Cravings:  salty food ?  I'm not really craving-craving, I'm just always hungry
  • Aversions:  seafood still-must be a Maryland thing
  • How I'm feeling:  my back is killing me.  I'm starting prenatal yoga this week at the same place I used last time.  It made a huge difference.
  • Sleep:  She kicks all night long and I haven't been sleeping very well.  She starts around 8:00 or so, right when I start to wind down, and kicks all night.  I think it is wonderful!  
  • My favorite part of this week:  telling our family that it is a GIRL and being able to say "she" now.  I won't yet reveal the name I keep calling her in my head.  I'll have to get word from Brian on that one.  
  • FUN STUFF:  I've chosen the nursery set and paint color.  I'm going to get the paint and have Brian and his dad paint the room over Christmas-the color is Antiguan Sky by Benjamin Moore.   I'm going to do white furniture and white curtains.  My mother in law's friend gave her a pink and white glider and foot rest that will go perfectly.  I can't wait to get started!
