Today I am 21 weeks. I am over that hump of the half way point and am now at the point of counting down to D-Day (or due date). 133 days to go! Courtney's kicks are becoming stronger but still feel like twitches (I just know what they are now). We aren't able to feel them on the outside yet, but hopefully soon before Mike leaves for South Carolina for a month. We did a little bit of shopping over the weekend and picked up two outfits (one at Target and one at Kohls) and together they were both under $20 bucks. Yeah for deals! I'm feeling really good (loving the 2nd trimester) and am looking forward to our trip to Babies R Us this coming weekend to start our registry. Babies R Us is about 50 miles away plus a ferry ride so this is our chance to look at the items we like and decide between items like strollers and carseats. It's not like we can go back easily if we forgot to look at something.
A little about baby this week:
Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a banana. 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.
