Graduation and 21 Weeks!!

Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for hydration and nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies are most interested in tastes they've already experienced through amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you want your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch. :)
How far along? 21 weeks!!!
Maternity clothes? Just jeans
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Still sleeping well, just wish I had time for more of it!
Best moment this week: Graduating, wearing a non maternity dress for pinning....yeah!
Movement: more and more every day
Food cravings: Mexican food
Gender: It's a GIRL
Labor Signs: none
Belly Button in or out? starting to be a halfie.....tee hee
What I miss: staying out til 2am and not being exhausted for days afterward. Had fun though!
What I am looking forward to: still waiting for that belly to pop (think I'm getting closer!)
Weekly Wisdom: pregnant people can't ride mechanical bulls. Darn.
Milestones: I think we decided on how to paint the nursery!

And here is a photo of my pinning ceremony! My second year faculty advisor, Nancy Hutt was the RN who 'welcomed' me to the profession and gave me my pin. She has been a tremendous support, along with my wonderful family and friends! It was a great day!

Congrats to you, Trist! I know you worked so hard. I have a request though...can we get a picture of you...from the FRONT?! I know you think your belly's not poppin, but I'd still like to see. I mean, you got to see me every month of my first pregnancy! ;)
