21 weeks

I ended up telling our infertility story over on my other blog this past week as well as announcing my pregnancy. I was unsure at first sharing our story over there but am glad I finally did. It's like a huge weight has been lifted & I can finally share my excitement on the other blog regarding this pregnancy!

With that said, I am so very sad to say that I think it is time to be moving on from this blog. For the past two & a half years, this blog has been a huge outlet of support, release & mental therapy for me. Through the infertility forums, other infertility blogs & friends who started following me by word of mouth from a mutual friend, I have met the most amazing women & have become friends with these girls for what I hope is many years to come. I am hoping that all 70+ people who follow this blog will come join me for this pregnancy journey over at A Day in the Life of HT!

Can't believe I am even saying this but this will be my very last update & post over here. As much as I've loved pouring out my heart & soul here, I am really glad to be moving on - with an amazing outcome :)

So without further ado, here is my last weekly update here:

How far along? 21 weeks (baby is 10.5 inches long, weighs 14 oz & is the length of a large carrot)

Symptoms: Heartburn is better this past week. I am also finding myself getting winded if I do too much at once.

Weight gain/loss: + 0 lbs thank goodness. Made up for it last week! (total of 10 lbs total gained so far)

Maternity clothes? yes - all the time now for shirts

Sleep: sleeping pretty much through the night now

Food cravings/aversions: been craving cheese & pasta this week like crazy - this is NOT helping with my weight gain :)

Movement? yes, Baby T is kicking & rolling around all the time now. Sometimes I feel like there is a little martial arts going on in my belly :)

What I miss? hmmm - have I mentioned cold turkey sandwiches??

Best moment(s) this week: seeing Baby T on the ultrasound, finding out we are having a boy & Shane getting to feel the baby kick & move for the first time this week!

What I'm looking forward to: going to Florida with my sister & her family & spending 5 days at Disney in 2 weeks

Next Appointment: October 8th with my OB

Milestones: Initial fluttering movements have now turned into full-fledged kicks & nudges.
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep has begun & indicates that he is now capable of dreaming - of what I don't know since it is dark in there?! I am discovering a pattern to baby's activity - very active after I eat candy & when I lay down for bed. Baby's eyebrows & lids are now present also.

Much love and prayers for you, Shane, and your baby boy! ((big hugs)) to you, my friend, you've been through so much and I hope that life hold nothing but happiness and all of the best for you and your sweet little family.

I do not know if it's just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with your blog. It appears like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen previously.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my
apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot
drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had
a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!
