21 Weeks


*This is picture is actually 21.5 weeks and taken late last night after my nap!
Also, I feel like I am getting so big but I have to remember that I am only 5'2 so there isn't much of a torso! ha!*

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 21 weeks
Size of baby: 10.5 inches long and around 13 ounces
Weight gain: 9 pounds
Maternity Clothes: I am wearing maternity shorts, capris and a few maternity tops mostly for the length!
Gender: A GIRL!!! Preslee Bell Turner
Movement: Feeling her move every day! Matt loves feeling her thumps and I LOVE that he can feel her too!!
Sleep: No complaints as long as I have my body pillow! I am still taking naps some days after work, but seems less frequent!
Symptoms: I may be having some gallbladder issues. I have pain after lunch on my high right stomach that goes into my back. I think that is causing most of my back pain now that I am researching it. So I am trying to change my diet to stay away from the pain! I have been more hungry lately too!
What I miss: Same as weeks before- Not missing much right now except Mexican food- salsa makes me sick! :( Also, this is probably too much info but, I miss my "smaller" chest! ha! The girls won't stop growing!
Cravings: Loving ice cream A LOT right now!
Best Moment this week: Getting to see our sweet girl in 3D!
What I am looking forward to: Starting to work on her nursery!

This week I took some pics with our little boy. We can't wait for Romeo to meet Preslee! We talk about her to him all the time and try to get him used to hearing her name! We are so excited to be a family of 4!

You're too cute! I'm 3 weeks behind you, and I already miss my smaller chest, too...and it gets worse when you start nursing ( if you are going to)! From nursing to stopping, I went from a D to B!

That picture with Romeo is precious! Love, love it! He seems like such a sweet boy!

You look great! And I love that last pic! So precious! I think dogs can sense something neat about pregnancy! My pups always want to lay their head on my stomach when I'm pregnant!

And I so hope that its not your gallbladder! That is no fun! I had a gallbladder attack at 13 -14 weeks and it was absolutely terrible! I had a dr tell me to watch my fat intake!

You're absolutely beautiful and glowing! :)

Julee, I had that exact same pain hit me at around 20-21 weeks with my first child (a boy born 12-8!!!)I wound up in the ER. After an ultrasound, it was determined my gallbladder was fine and I had gastritis. I chewed TUMS 24/7 (not literally but almost) for the rest of my pregnancy because the pain never went away. After my son was born, the pain was gone.

You look fantastic! Love the pregnancy pics...I wish I would have done those with my kiddos!
I had some pain in my stomach that went to my back right around 22 weeks and it turned out to be a very small kidney stone. Wishing you all the best and praying for your sweet family!

I was diagnosed with gallstones at 21 weeks when I was pregnant with our daughter (muffle muffle 15 years ago muffle muffle). I had to watch my fat intake ... the nutritionist said not to eat anything with more than 2.5% fat. Not easy when you are craving jelly donuts! HA! It can be done and our sweet girl was born one week early and was super healthy and continues to be so. And as a bonus, I only gained 2 1/2 pounds because I ate so healthy! Praying that it isn't gall stones and for a healthy little girl!

It was great visiting with you today! I love my hair cut and look forward to hearing more about the nursery!

I had that same 'gallbladder' pain during pregnancy. It felt like something was knawing (sp?) away in my right side. It eventually went away, hope yours does too!

Sarah-Anne said...

ha, i love how real you are about everything you're going through with your pregnancy. :) you are beautiful, mama!

Heather said...

THAT'S THE CUTEST PIC EVER..I BET ROMEO WILL LOVE HER!

Tamara Lambert said...

You're so cute! DON'T worry! You've seen for yourself that your baby is just fine! Regardless what's happened in the past, at this moment, you are not infertile. It's ok to let the past go!

Katie said...

I had that same pain when I was pregnant with my little boy. My liver enzymes were elevated and I ended up having an ultrasound of my gall bladder b/c they thought it was that. It ended up just being the way he was positioned I guess--it went away right when he was born! Hang in there! :)
