Today I am 21 weeks pregnant! I love being pregnant. I get to blame emotions and appetite and things I don’t like on being pregnant. I love it! It’s one of my favorite parts of this whole experience. My favorite part of all of this so far is being able to feel my baby move. Last night he had to of had the hiccups or something. I kept feeling these little flutters, and they were evenly spaced and lasted for quite a while. Poor little guy, it must have been something that I ate. Let’s see last night I wasn’t that hungry or feeling good so I ate a can of Vienna sausage’s and some crackers. I wonder if that is what did it.
Last night I couldn’t sleep at all. I couldn’t get comfortable. I was tossing and turning until about 3 AM. I finally get into a good rest to be wakened up by 3 kids running around, hollering at 7:30!! Finally they settled down and I got a few more hours of sleep. I need sleep, because I am pregnant. Just saying, but my body is working extra hard to create this new life. Carrying all of the extra blood, water, and weight can really take its toll on you. Not only that, but after a night of tossing and turning one just needs to get some rest. Otherwise you have to deal with Cranky Brittany, and she can be a bitch! I am taking advantage of sleeping as much as I can now, before the baby comes!!
I love the attention I am starting to get because of my growing belly. I still haven’t had anyone roll out the red carpet for me, but it is bound to happen sooner or later, right? I forget where we were the other day, but I had to go to the bathroom. And there were a ton of people in there waiting. I guess we all had to go at the same time or something, but someone realized I was pregnant, and let me go ahead! Thank you so much! I love that many stores now have the “Expected mothers parking.” I haven’t ever parked in one, but it makes me happy to know that they are there.
So I am 21 weeks. Feeling great! Loving life and I only have 5 more days until I am home with my hubby!
Till next time!
