Twenty one weeks means that I'm more than halfway there. Since I'm delivering at 39 weeks, I guess I only have 18 weeks to go. When you think of it like that it seems really soon, but it's really not. I saw online yesterday that I have something like 127 days left or something silly like that. Should countdowns really start that early on? No. I don't think that they should. It's like starting the Christmas countdown in August. No bueno.
yes, that's Miley Cirus dressed as a carrot.
My 21 week update said that Noah is currently the size of a carrot. He's roughly 10.5 inches long and about 3/4 of a pound now. At this point, he's due to start gaining weight pretty rapidly. I'm really only feeling him move around, but that will soon turn to full on kicks as he gets biggger and stronger. I'm looking forward to that. It never really got painful with Connor. I just liked feeling him moving around. No matter how hard the kick to the ribs, it's a constant reassurance that he's in there and doing ok. This week his eye lids and brows are present which is quasi-creepy.
This may be very egocentric, very possible, but I feel like everyone is pregnant right now. Connor was born during a huge baby boom and I'm feeling like it's happening again. Seriously. There are two girls from my sorority pledge class who are due the same week as I am, as well as several girls from high school, work, etc. Facebook has really made it obvious that about 5 months ago several of us were doing the same thing. Thanks facebook, that's not creepy at all.
Oh, i'm thinking about getting one of those creepy floating baby countdowns on here-not just a plain ticker thing. I saw one on someone's blog that had funny developmental notes...any thoughts or recommendations?
That's really it for now, thanks :)
UPDATE: I found a couple baby tickers that weren't boring. The creepy floating baby is on the right menu and the blue ticker with funny developmental stuff is right below it. which does everyone like more??
