21 Weeks

We are 21 weeks today! Baby Samantha is about the length of a carrot. A very cute carrot, that is...

I met my mom for lunch yesterday and tried to get some Christmas shopping done. Very hard to do on a very low budget, but we are working with what we've got. All the stores and malls and ROADS were insanely busy and the day itself was incredibly frustrating. I think the older I get the less patience I have for rude people or just people in general. The highlights of the day were lunch with my mom and a sweet deal I got at Baby Gap. I had an Old Navy gift card in my wallet from forever ago, that had $8.00 left on it. And Gap honors Old Navy cards. So as I  was browsing all the cute (and expensive) Baby Gap stuff I found this pink knit beret with a big white pom pom on top. It was so cute, I just had to get it! There was only one left and it was just the right size for Samantha come next fall/winter. However it was $16.00. But I knew I had the $8.00 on the card, so it seemed reasonable. I take it up to the counter, give the cashier my gift card and wait for her to tell me exactly how much I owe. She says to me " Would you like your change back on the card or in cash?" Turns out the hat was on sale for $6.00!!! :) Made my day.

I think I may have been feeling movement the past few days!!! At first I thought it was just gas or something weird, but then I realized it's stayed pretty consistent. Still very faint, the movement isn't enough for my husband to feel it, but I can feel it! And I'm getting so excited about it!

Ok, so is it normal that I have to pee every ten minutes?? I'm not exaggerating. I pee all the time it seems. Even if I pee and then sit down on the couch and then get up 5 minutes later...it feels like my bladder is full again! And I can go. It's not just I feel like I have to go...I can actually go...

I know it's probably pressure from the baby and probably very normal. But I am a little concerned. I'm up every hour to go in the night, which doesn't freak me out as much. Although, during the day I'm peeing every 10-15 minutes!

Anybody else pee this much??! :) Help!

I love getting great deals! Especially on baby clothes. I have to die for love something to pay for it full price when it comes to baby clothes because they go sooo fast! :( And yes, I was peeing ALL THE TIME. Don't worry, love, it gets worse. :) But oh so worth it. Towards the end of my pregnancy no joke I would walk out of the bathroom and have to pee again already! It was insane.

baby gap can be pricey but when stuff goes on sale at the end of the season it really isn't so bad...and the quality is good.
I remember so many times getting up to pee and making it half way to the couch and realizing I had to pee again...totally normal

Congrats on 21 weeks I can't wait to get that far along. I wish time would just speed up. I think old navy is 30% off this entire weekend if you print out their coupon so you could probably get some good deals, but it is crazy busy out there!

Good Timing said...

Love a good deal! And I have to pee all the time too! Lol. :)

Kristen said...

Love everything about this post! The fact that you have hit another week, the great deal and adorable beret, a day with your mom and MOVEMENT!!! I know how stressed you were that you hadn't been feeling movement yet, so I am so happy to hear that Samantha is starting to give you some jabs! ;) oh, I meant to say I loved everything but the peeing part...lol Not that I know from experience, but from what I've heard from others peeing all the time when you're pregnant is totally normal... Bummer.

Love you! Oh, and 8've got the socks ready to role for Monday!!!

AJ said...

Wow, I can't believe that you are 21 weeks already!! I'm glad your shopping trip was a success!!

Morgan said...

The peeing is totally normal, if you lean forward when you think you are done, your uterus will press on your bladder and squeeze the rest out. Weird I know, but I definitely resorted to doing it.

SO exciting to feel movement. I miss that feeling SO much! I love Baby Gap. And we have spent half of our paycheck in that store a number of times, so good for you for getting money back!

Congrats on getting over halfway there. :)
