My Kelocity Baby: 21 Weeks January 28, 2012

Another week in the books! Still feeling great! I didn’t get out for as many walks as I wanted to, but I did do a 5-miler on Sunday and Yoga on Tuesday. I just love my yoga class. This week, we had to find a partner and hold hands while doing squats. We must have done 30-40 of them and the teacher said “Are your legs burning? We’re going to go for one more minute because contractions are a minute long and you should learn how to breathe through the pain.” If that’s not great labor prep, I don’t know what is! I am really starting to get excited about the labor process. I hear it’s no fun, but I’m just getting so pumped for the challenge. I feel empowered and strong enough to do it and that makes me happy. It’s a great place to start.

I sttill have five more months before we meet the little one, but I am becoming more and more anxious to meet him or her. I am starting to have dreams about the baby and some of them are so vivid and feel so real. It’s going to be so much fun.

How I’m Feeling:
Still feeling really great. Heartburn continues to torture me, but all in all, I’m feeling great. I notice my back is getting a little sore, but my hips are starting to feel better. I still have enough energy to get through the day, second trimester has been great so far!

Weeks along: 21 Weeks

Pounds Gained: 10.3 lbs Total

I can’t figure out if I’m carrying high or low… are any of those myths true about gender?

Pregnancy Woes:

  • Heartburn. Ahhh! Go Away!!
  • Bloody Noses… had my 3rd one this week. Gross.
  • Snoogle. It’s officially been banished to the floor. I admit it was an impulse purchase that has not yet lived up to the hype. A regular body pillow feels SO much better.
  • Charley Horse Calf Cramps at night. Any tips on how to make THAT go away?

Pregnancy Loves:

  • Food Cravings: None of note. Although I notice my sweet tooth is going away.  I’m actually starting to get turned off by it a bit. (Who am I?)
  • Baby Kicks! They never get old.
  • Yoga. I look forward to it all week long, I love it!
  • Finding the baby’s heartbeat at night and chasing him/her around my belly.

Goal for this week:

Next Appointment: Valentine’s Day week. ❤

Highlights of the Week:

  • Clearing out more stuff to make room for the nursery!
  • Researching and picking out a car seat and stroller

  1. You work the bump! Super cute!!

  2. booradlee Says:

    Your outfit is so cute, Kelley!

  3. You look so good! I can’t believe that you are already 21 weeks, time is flying by :). I haven’t had the charlie horse symptom but like Ashely, I heard that bananas help and loads and loads of water. As for the wives tales, you look like you are all baby so I’m thinking boy :).

  4. Mama Gaga Says:

    You are such a pretty pregnant lady. Definitely glowing and perma-smiling!! And call me a weirdo, but overall I really enjoyed the labor process. It can be fun! You are going to rock it, I can already tell! 🙂 And I’m just going out on a limb and offering unsolicited opinions. I think you’re having a GIRL! And that has nothing to do with wives tales about carrying high/low. Just sayin’… 😉

    • Kelocity Says:

      Thanks! I’m strangely pretty excited about labor/delivery too. I credit it to yoga for making me feel empowered and strong enough. I am excited to start to read more about it and learn more about it. I feel so lucky!

  5. Like Ashley said, bananas help with charlie horses, and so do potatoes! Chock full of Potassium!

  6. ashley Says:

    eat a banana a day to keep those nighttime charlie horse cramps away!!!
