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.
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.
