Wiggle Worm! (21w5d)
Since the beginning of my week 21 (21w1d specifically) Nano has decided to kick like 10x as much as he or she was previously. I don't know if this week is filled with a special growth spurt or what, but seriously, I feel KICKS and DANCING whereas before it was flutters and flicks. Two separate days for varying amounts of time Nano actually was positioned feet down and definitely was kicking me directly in the bladder. It is the weirdest feeling ever but also the coolest because I know my baby is OK when those kicks and dances happen.
I am feeling great pregnancy wise. I have to pee more often but that is to be expected with the bladder getting more and more squished. I also seem to have a shrinking stomach capacity sometimes, and can only eat half of what my usual intake is at a meal. I think Nano likes to squish my stomach sometimes hehe! I still take a nap almost every day but I did many days before i was pregnant too so I can't really say how much MORE tired I am from pregnancy. I do sleep worse at night and wake up a million times to reposition my aching hips so that has something to do with it I'm guessing. Besides that, no symptoms to report. I'm sure I'm very hormonal at times (ask my husband) and that occassionally I complain of something else but it's not bad at all for me. I am so blessed.
We just started looking at names today and actually think we have it narrowed down to a few boy and a few girl names. We like to make things happen quickly and go with gut decisions from a researched list. Right now I am writing various spellings down of the names we like most to see if we are going to choose a different spelling of the name to make it more unique. We'll see. I am pretty sure we will keep the names a secret til birth as well, since I don't like when people give their 2 cents about something involving OUR decision. :O) I guess I'm just selfish that way.
I will make an aside here instead of writing another whole post. The news which I have been sitting on for over 2 months can finally be revealed! Nicholas and I bought a house!!!! It closed on Tuesday and we are going to be over there doing repairs most of the weekend. It is older, built in 1945, but is very cute and has a GREAT backyard. There is even a room for Nano, which I am STOKED to decorate and put together. I will post pictures of the inside after we get some more stuff done, as we have to replace the flooring, paint, trim, the entire kitchen, etc etc. We are hoping to be in the new house in July sometime.
Life is so amazing right now and I feel like everything is falling into place perfectly. School is done for good, we have the house for sure and have a list of things that need to be done before moving, I completed my AWANA journey and earned my Citation Award last night, more baby stuff is being decided, and I am in an amazing bible study to further my walk with Christ. Annnnd to top it all off Hawaii is in a month!!!!!
Til next time,
