Pregnancy update

Since I've been off for the past 2 days, I'm drawing a blank on cases to post about. Instead, I'll give you a pregnancy update. I'm 21 weeks as of tomorrow. I am sporting a rather conspicuous bump these days, and I have put on around 18 pounds. It doesn't help that the baby appears to be a salt and chocolate craver (or maybe that's just my excuse!). Physically, I feel really, really good. The insomnia/anxiety has passed for now, and I'm doing very well. I started to feel the baby move about a week and a half ago. At first, I thought it was little muscle spasms, but as it continued daily, I realized what it was. There is no way to describe how odd it feels to be lightly pummeled from the inside. So far, the husband has not been able to feel the baby externally yet. There have been a few times where she kicked hard, and I was able to feel her with my hand, but by the time the husband got to me, she had subsided. So, no feeling it for him yet. It's my own little private thing for now. So far, pregnancy suits me!

Wait until around the 8th month... when you try to spoon with him having his back to you. And you will... trust me... with the left leg plopped over him for support! LOL

Glad you are feeling so good! I am too and am hoping it lasts at least through the rest of the second trimester. I just starting feeling the baby move too and it's completely weird!
