Here we are at 21 weeks
This week our baby is the length of a carrot, 10 1/2 inches LONG.. whaaaaaa
According to babycenter.com, “ 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, and if you’re having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.”
THREE DAYS.. count them three… Friday.. Saturday.. Sunday.. until we find out if we are having a boy or girl. I believe both of our families think we are having a girl haha… Tomorrow I will put up a post about old wives tales and let you put in your guesses
This week has been pretty good. We had our 20 week ultrasound where we got to see our baby for an extended period of time and hear the heartbeat AGAIN! It was marvelous. Patti and I went to a consignment sale last Friday and bought a few things. I got a brand new boppy, and a snap and go stroller.. Patti made out like a queen, scoring a bouncy chair, a changing table, a breast pump, and other various things. I was a bit overwhelmed with all the stuff they had there so I was a little apprehensive when it came to buying stuff. She also knows they are having a boy so it was a big easier for her to get stuff that matched her nursery colors
Last night Brandy and Shera brought over some of Shera’s son’s baby stuff….
Sorry for the terrible picture.. but that a LOT of stuff. There are tons of little boy clothes (she has three sons), so if we have a boy I will have a field day with this stuff.. If not I will give them to Erin and Patti Either way not all is lost. I did score TWO pack & plays which will be going to our parent’s houses. Thank you so much Shera for giving me all this stuff.
My friend Kelly is coming TODAY, I cannot wait to pick her up from the airport tonight!! So many fun things happening this weekend!
