(Tuesday July 22 , 2014 to Monday July 28, 2014)
19 to go.. 🙂
Baby is :
Baby is the lenght of a CARROT
During week 21, Axel’s eyebrows and lids are present now, and her vagina has begun to form as well.
I can start to understand her sleep patterns, when she’s awake and when she’s sleeping.. and like her big bro, she’s pretty active late in the evening, hehe.
How I’m Feeling:
I’m glad, this week I received the newborn cloth diapers for Axel. With Dalie and auguste I didnt bought some I get caught using disposable.. they were too skinny to use their cloth diapers, damn you skinny thighs, haha! So this time, it will not happen, muahhaha! My mom and I found the ultimate deal (and they are just perfect!! no dyes, no crazy chemicals) so she bought it for me (thanks mom!) Cloth diapers are THE BEST 😀
I also received this morning (July 28) the incredibly beautiful Mexican hand woven baby wrap I ordered for Axel.. awww it’s so lovely! Can’t wait to carry her in it!!
How I’m Changing:
During week 21, I went to the hair salon I changed my hair style.. no more super long hair!! It’s a little longer on top, but on the sides it’s shaved with a clipper.
But it’s for a good cause, my long pony tail is going to a cause here in Canada that makes human hair wigs for women with cancer (s). Since my mom is battling cancer (She had plenty and still have more than one) for the past 4 years and since then she had no hair and no eyebrow, I thought it would be a great gesture to do so. A friend of mine send me the link with the things you had to respect to be able to do that.. like no dye in your hair, I’m ok, long hair, super ok and no grey hair..I’m ok too. Hope my hair will be able to bring back a beautiful smile on someone’s face. 🙂
Other that that, my belly is growing, I feel axel move more and more, yesterday I even felt a hiccup for the first time!! haha it’s always a funny sensation. My belly is more round and harder than before. I stopped losing my hair like crazy, haha well maybe I still lose them a lot but since they are super short I don’t notice it, hahaha!
What I’m Eating/What I’m NOT Eating:
Still eating the usual, lots of water, I can drink so much water in a day, it’s crazy! Lots of fresh fruits and veggies.
Total Weight Gained:
I think I’ll stop weighting myself, hahahaha! Few days ago I was at +0.5 pounds and this morning I was at +2.5 pounds.. hahaha! I didn’t took 2 pounds in 3 days, haha! I’m not eating for two, in fact I should eat way more than what I’m eating (but I don’t really have appetite during this pregnancy) and I’m eating healthy, it’s so weird, haha!
Walking a lot (like going for a 3 hours walk with my kids (in a double stroller, haha))
Prenatal Care :
Still taking vitamins, eating healthy too.
My next appointment is Tuesday August 19, 2014. I will be 25 weeks pregnant. Can’t wait to see my precious little Axel once again.
Sleeping well.. in fact this week I started to have major heartburn during the evening, it’s not always easy going to bed, but other than that everything is doing fine.
See you next week!
