Week 21

Tomorrow will be the start of the 21st week. That will officially put me [barely] past the halfway point! I don’t really have much new stuff to report though. Aside from the kicks getting a little stronger, it is pretty much the same as my last few posts. Well, maybe add a few more aches and pains. I think I am at the beginning of not being able to pick things up or bend like I use to. I typically wake up stiff and sore these days, and tonight I bent over to pick up a laundry basket full of clothes and something in my abdomen did not like that. It didn’t exactly hurt, but some muscle right around my belly button cramped up and felt tight for a while afterwards.

I wonder if this is the start of a kind of lull. I don’t really have anything to look forward to for a while. There are no ultrasounds scheduled, and the third trimester goal is nearly two months away. I don’t really expect much to happen between now and then besides continuing to get bigger. The only real exciting thing that should happen soon is when Sean finally gets to feel a kick, and it isn’t like there is a set date for that. I caught a strong one with my hand on my belly today though, and just barely felt it on the outside… so maybe that will happen really soon.
