21w3d. yikes! I've got fat feet!
something happened during this past week. not only did I really "pop" I'm expanding universally -- every possible direction (except in hair growth.) long golden locks will continue to be an unattainable fantasy. I was away for a few days up at my sister's. we did a lot of shopping (summer mat clothes and misc gear for little one) and every mirror that I passed was even more shocking than the one before. I have almost completely grown out of round 1 maternity wear AND I have 18 more weeks to go. oh my. super tight does not = a super good look.
b was out in the midwest (yes, he woke up to the earthquake) at a 3 day cardio thoracic fellows meeting (good times no doubt.) when I saw him on sunday he asked if my sisters had noticed a big change in... "my girth." nice. my child bearing hips are in full swing now (and then some.)
little one has been very active since the 20w milestone. I felt him/her kick from the outside for the very first time while in bed on saturday night. this was crazy exciting! (and I have to admit, a little odd too.) then last night while sitting and chatting on the couch b felt his son or daughter for the first time as well. he got to experience a nice big kick (or was it a punch? -- non aggressive I hope) talk about an amazing "welcome home dad!"
