    21 weeks

    How far along: 21 weeks
    Weight: 131.4lb
    Sleep: Good. I’ve now arrived at the point where I can’t sleep on my back anymore. It’s making sleeping a it more limited, but ok.
    Gender: Still boy.
    Movement: S2 is definitely a mover. He’s not a rediculous wiggle worm, actually he’s quite mellow… just a lot more willing to let me know when he’s swimming around that his brother did. It will be interesting to see how he takes advantage of his temporary home in the new few weeks.
    Feeling: Good overall. I have moments of feeling sore and stiff, and those aren’t good, but are controllable for now. I’m just really ready for another pre-natal massage. I’m a little worried that the last few months of this pregnancy I won’t be very comfortable. I feel a little fortunate that we’ll be in cold season though at that time, and at least I won’t be hot AND uncomfortable.
    What I miss: Nothing comes to mind
    Weekly Wisdom: A pillow in between the knees makes sleep a lot better. Also stone fruit. It’s good for you 🙂
    Milestones: No major milestones this week, but I just realized that my last trimester is only a month away. Holy cow!
    Food cravings: I’m starting to crave sweets again.
    Fetal development:
    Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like he’s practicing martial arts as his initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to his activity as you get to know him better. In other developments, your baby’s eyebrows and lids are present now.
