Ins and Outs at 21 weeks………

Ok, 21 weeks.  Four more to go until I reach viablility. Well, technically three more, but 25 weeks sounds better to me.

Went to a baby shower today for one of my friends who got knocked up accidentaly.  Must be nice.

It was nice, and the whole time, I was imagining that it was my baby shower.  I wish I were over 30 weeks.  I wish it was almost time!


Things that are in this week:

Cocoa butter:  Lots of it.  I can feel the stretching.  I just don’t want to see any evidence.

Baby kicks:  Yes, he is kicking.  And I spend the whole day waiting for it.

Constipation:  I had the worst gas pains of my life this morning.  I thought I was in labor! But being the neurotic Rn that I am, I checked myself, drank a gallon of water, took simethicone and put in a glycerin suppository.  30 minutes later, victory. 

Hunger:  Self explanatory.

Peaches:  Wow.  I mean, they are so delicious, and juicy and sweet and …….God, I’ve got to go to the store right after I finish this!

Swelling:  I keep trying to tell myself it’s just the heat.

Things that are out:

Abdominal muscles:  I used to have pretty strong ones.  Now………

Italianv: Gives me waaaaaaay too much heartburn.

My wedding ring:  My fingers are swollen.  It is now on a chain around my neck.

Sex:  Again.  I am working on it.

A full night’s sleep:  My bladder feels the need to empty every 3 hours.

My fat jeans:  (God that’s depressing.)

Well, that’s all for now!  Stay tuned for next week’s adventures!
