21w2d

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

I really thought that this was going to be my last consistent bump picture in the wellness room, but I am amazingly relieved to say that I have survived our company's workforce reduction. There aren't too many details that I can provide, but please pray for my co-workers who were not as fortunate and those who may have to wait until Friday to find out their status.

21w2d with Baby Love vs almost 21w with Isaac.

From my weekly email: Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she's practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now

How far along?: 21w2d
How big is baby?: The size of a banana, 10.5 inches.
Weight gain/loss?: Found out last week that I was at an 8 lb increase based on the scale at the MW.
Stretch marks?: None, thankfully.
Maternity clothes?: Starting to work them into my wardrobe. Although I never wore maternity tops with Isaac, only bottoms.
Sleep?: Broken up by leg cramps.
Food cravings?: Love chilled pineapple and mandarin oranges.
Gender?: We're having another boy!
Movement?: A little stronger every day.
Belly button?: Aside from the damage inflicted by Isaac, unchanged.
What are you looking forward to this week?: Just hanging out with my family.

Notables:
I still have a job. For the time being I will still be taking maternity leave! I'm so excited about this.

Love that scarf! And wooo! about your job--I know you're dying to become a stay-at-home-mom, but the best way for that to happen is obviously not in the form of a lay-off, so a big sigh of relief!
