21 Weeks

I always end up doing my belly shots halfway through the week. I guess it’s because it’s easier to take them on the weekend rather than on a weekday when all I want to do when I get home from work is put on my pj’s and prop up my swollen feet. I think I look smaller in this week’s picture than in the portraits from last week. I think it was the shirt that made me look so big because when I look in the mirror I find it hard to tell that I’m 5 months pregnant. Or maybe that’s just how I see myself. Of course, I’m not holding my hand under my belly when I’m out and about either.

21 week belly shot 5

I’ve really started feeling Lucy move around more regularly this week. I just can’t get over what a neat feeling it is. I already know it is one of the things I will miss the most about being pregnant. I can’t wait for Joe to be able to feel it. I thought I was able to feel it from the outside a few days ago, but Joe wasn’t able to. Maybe I was feeling it because I’m also feeling what’s going on inside.

I can’t wait to see how her movements get stronger as each week goes by!

    that is one of things I won’t miss is all the kicking lol… but then again this baby seems to be able to find my cerix and kick/punch the every living crap out of it… I think I now understand the pain guys feel with they get hit in their “area” lol… this baby also seems to be able to find my stomach after I eat and punch it… and then I feel like I am going to puke for the next 3 hours lol… Lorelei was much nicer to me than this one lol…
