Baby #2 Bumpdate - Weeks 20 & 21

It's that time again...

How far along: 21w1d...I must admit, I almost just wrote 20w there, I'm not sure where the 20th week went.  One moment it was the next milestone (halfway!) and the next it was more than a week ago.  Time is flying lately.

Weight gain: I think I gained 4 lbs in the last 2 weeks.  For a hideous moment while I was in Oregon I thought I had gained 10!  But it turns out that my parents scale is just WAY different than mine.  Mine is clearly better as I weigh less on it ;-)  But it definitely looks like I've breached 130 and skipped right on over that to 132 which puts me up 14 lbs. total.

What's up with my body:  Braxton Hicks have started up with a vengeance.  I know some women do not feel their BH at all, but I am unfortunately not one of those women.  I get them A LOT and I hate them...they are very uncomfortable.  But they do remind me to sit down and drink some water!  Other than that I'm feeling good and there's not much going on with my body. I took a look at my 20 and 21 week bumpdates from Jett's pregnancy and it looks like I had all sorts of new symptoms crop up around this time like heartburn and sciatic nerve pain in my hip and I was just generally starting to feel a bit uncomfortable.  I feel totally fine this time around.  I would hardly realize I'm pregnant except for the grunting whenever I try to get up from our deep deep couch or out of bed or off the floor!

Gender: I'm still stuck on girl and I haven't wavered this time like I did with Jett.  We're still trying to come up with boy names but I've got my girl name and I'm having such trouble finding a boy name that hoping I'm correct and that our boy name doesn't matter.

Bumpdate: I think the bump growth has slowed down and looks similar to how it did with Jett.  Thank god because it was too big too fast!
