I'm on week 21 and feeling really good. Look how little miss is growing!! She's the length of a carrot this week. They say I should be feeling true kicks any day now. I'm looking forward to that...I think. :) If I don't feel movement during the day, I will still get my fetal doppler out to listen to her heartbeat. It gives me such peace of mind. Her heartbeat is always up in the 150bpm range - which is what it always is at the doctor's office. Seriously, buying that doppler...best money ever spent. Thank you, sweetie!!
I stopped by my former place of employment last week and one of my former bosses said, "are you sure there is only one in there?" I believe he also used the word, 'litter'. ha! If he weren't a sweet man of God, I would have cried upon being asked this question. But I actually found it funny that he said that. Out loud. To a pregnant woman. (LOL) Seriously, he is one of the sweetest people in the world and would never say anything to hurt anyone. I know I'm big. I FEEL big. As Alex keeps telling me, we just want her to be healthy...that's all that matters. :) As you can see in the pictures, I have on the exact same shirt in all four pics. It's my favorite maternity shirt...so comfy, I had to buy it in every color! I also have it in white. Whenever they put them on sale, I pick up another.
It's so hot here. I've noticed that I can't be on my feet for more than a few hours or they are so swollen and hurting. I tried to go shoe shopping and decided that I need to just wait and buy shoes when I'm NOT pregnant. Shoes do not look as cute on fat feet.
I went to my friend, Andrea's baby shower today. We went to high school together and I'm so glad that we kept in touch and still hang out. She has a laugh that is contagious! I hear her laugh and I start laughing...doesn't even matter if I know what she's laughing about...girl makes me laugh. This is her first baby as well...she's having a baby boy. Here are a few pics from the shower. Andrea looked great and her friends did such a great job. She received lots of cute stuff!
How cute is this cake!? It tasted yummy too!
One of her friends made this cute diaper cake...the diapers were polka dotted!
I bought her this onesie...it says, "Born in '09" :)
And here we are...two mommas, showing off our babies. :)
And I'll leave you with a picture of my niece, K. She spent a day with me, last week and we had a good 'ole time! I introduced her to chick-fil-a. Because girls need to learn this stuff early. They have the best waffle fries and unsweet tea! As you can see by the picture...she loved them. :)
Have a great week, y'all!
