YOUR BABY'S SIZE: 5 tangerines
Yet the ticker on the right says butternut squash. Butternut squash?! Really?! Those are huge. One of my apps says banana (feasible) and another says cantaloupe. Again, cantaloupes are pretty big! Sometimes I don't know where they come up with these things.
I got Avery in on the picture-taking this morning in the hopes that she would detract attention from me. She was being goofy.
So, 21 weeks. More than halfway there. And yes, we know that for sure this time. No going to 42 weeks as I'll be having a repeat c-section somewhere around 40 weeks, if not on my exact due date, a couple days before. My doctor does scheduled c-sections between 39 and 40 weeks. She doesn't let you go over your due date when a c-section is planned (not that I would want to anyway) because that increases the likelihood of going into labor on your own which could potentially create an urgent situation. I would like to be awake and have Rob present this time, so the less urgent the better.
I am starting to really believe-and actually get excited-that we are having a baby in July. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I wasn't excited before, it's just that I have been so cautiously optimistic. To a fault. I am starting to snap out of that and just be excited and not worry about what could possibly happen between now and then.
I still haven't bought much for him yet. We will use the crib and dresser that Avery is currently using, so we already have furniture and basically everything for the room except bedding and various decor. I found some bedding I like from Land of Nod but it costs eleventy billion dollars. I'm not spending that much money on bedding (and it's currently out of stock anyway). Maybe it will go on sale.
I am feeling fine and pretty much normal. I'm starting to feel him move around more frequently, mostly when I'm laying down but sometimes when I'm sitting at my desk.
I have a doctor appointment next Tuesday.
