Oranges. Yum. It's what I have been wanting lately. Oranges, orange juice, anything made with orange... give it to me. ha. I have also wanted chocolate. Dave was awesome yesterday and he brought me home a can of orange juice to mix up and 2 bars of my favorite chocolate, which happens to be Cadbury Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bar. DEEEELISH... so cravings are satisfied.
Here I am at 21 weeks. (I'm really working on this smiling while I take my picture thing, ha)
This is where it slows down a bit because I really have nothing to look forward to for another 10 weeks or so... This little stretch of pregnancy will be very slow... but not as slow as the last 3 weeks, which are sheer torture.
I am carrying this little baby SO LOW! Both of my other ones were higher. Lindsey being the one I carried the highest. I carried her so high that after I gave birth to her, my ribs SERIOUSLY felt broken for like 3 months after. Bren wasn't nearly as high, but he was high... my ribs didn't get as stretched with him. This one... is doing a number on my pelvic bone, so I am experiencing a whole new world of pregnancy discomfort with this one. No big. I can handle it.
Thought I would add that baby Avery has been kicking and moving around and it has been so fun to feel her movements. Not only does it give me peace of mind, but it is also one of the coolest things about pregnancy.
STILL WALKING :) Yup. Matter of fact... here are some of the instagrams I took this week during my walks...
I thought I would share a story of Bren and naming the baby. Before I had the ultrasound I asked him again what he hoped mommy was having. He told me a boy. I asked him why since he had previously said girl. He said "So I can name him Lightening McQueen." ha ha ha. I laughed and said, I'm not going to name a boy Lightening McQueen. He said "How about Dynaco?" ha ha ha... I laughed again and said I am not going to name a boy Dynaco either. SO FUNNY. So right before the ultrasound I asked him again and he said girl this time, I asked him why the change of heart, he said "because you won't let me name him Dynaco." I thought it was so funny. My Cars Obsessed little boy. He is my daily entertainment.
That is all from me on this week's pregnancy updates. Hope you all are enjoying your summer. With August approaching, fall will be here before we know it, and I couldn't be happier. I can't express to you how much I love the fall.
