21 weeks Diary
I am so very sorry that this post is late , I have been very poorly with headaches but am feeling better now .
Any Big Events?
Nope nothing this week , no hospital or doctors visits for a few weeks yet .
How Is Baby feeling -
Since visiting the hospital last week to find out that we were carrying a baby boy and he is perfectly great in his growing state, I have felt so much more at ease and relaxed knowing everything inside my womb was as it should be.
He seems to have been getting very excited and more energetic.
I feel I have more movement from him and feel him kicking about more and more each day.
Certain foods and drinks seem to start him off more than others, I have found out that he loves milk , yogurts and cool sweet foods like jelly and fruit.
Baby Prince seems to be more energetic on the late evenings which I know is typical of the boys in our family who all tend to wake up more at night time, (I am ready for those late night sleeps or lack of ).
I find it interesting to find out that our baby's eyebrows and lips are looking more distinctive.
Our lean bean is actually measuring around 27cm long.
How am I feeling ?
I am feeling better in myself (well you will see how this evaporated at 22 weeks quickly in my next post).
All the way through my 21st week, I felt more able , I was starting to enjoy sitting in the garden sun watching the little ones .
Walking to and from school , the long countryside walk has become a delight now although I know once bump gets bigger , my feet may feel the burn more .
My bump used to feel a little soft , now I feel it is starting to round of and harden more taking its shape so it is even visible when sitting down .
One of my problems this week has come to head when I found myself struggling to shave in the shower .
I seem to have lost the ability to bend over lol.
Reaching places below the tummy have become a little harder and I now fear it is not going t be much longer before I end up feeling like a yeti (Please let me get through the summer ).
My taste buds have gone from loving everything to now being very picky and choosy and have found that things such as ketchup or salad cream is too much to handle .
Things are starting to slow down which is much to my delight.
I can feel myself getting rather addicted to online auction sites to which I fear may become a new bargain addiction for some of those fantastic baby items I will be in need of soon.
Week 21 was an exciting one, I feel at ease more knowing everything is ok and we are having a boy so it is so much easier to start shopping for bits and bobs in colour and I have felt great in myself, more energetic and to be fair , finally getting excited about becoming mum again .
Don't foget that this post is late so my 22nd week will be up almost instantly but it is most definitely different, lots of changes to my body especially to share with you.
So pleased to hear you are feeling better!! Awww a boy - huge congratulations :) Taste buds are a funny thing in pregnancy, I am a massive tea addict but couldn't stand the stuff while I was pregnant with all three. My 1st baby I craved big Macs, I hated them before and have ever since! Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy x

Sounds like you are getting to know your baby boy even if he is still inside at the moment.

Glad that you're starting to feel more relaxed and the headaches have gone. I used to get awful migraines from around 10 weeks which were really hard to deal with. Good luck with the remaining weeks.

Sorry to hear you have been feeling poorly but glad you are feeling better. It's funny how food tastes change during pregnancy.

How exciting. You are at almost the same point in your pregnancy as me (I'm 21 weeks today and you are obviously 22 already) I'll be interested to see the changes at 22 weeks

Can't believe you are already at 21 weeks!

It sounds like it's going really well - apart from the headaches, hope they stop.
