21 weeks!

I hit 21 weeks today. This pregnancy has been going a lot quicker than my last one. I am very very thankful for that. =)

This past week I met with my midwife for the first time. She listened to Tobin's heartbeat and measured me. I am measuring a week ahead of my due date, so maybe our sweet boy will get here a little sooner. *fingers crossed* She also told me that I need to double my calorie intake. That statement made me laugh. I have HG, so adding extra calories to my diet, that I can keep down, is already a struggle, but I think I've been doing a LOT better this week. I've been throwing up a lot less, which I am VERY thankful for. I'm still uber tired, but that kind of comes with being pregnant. haha

I am planning on delivering Tobin in a birth center. Home births kind of gross me out. Birthing is a messy and wonderful thing to do, but I don't want to do it at home. I rather leave he mess somewhere else, so I don't have to stress about it with a new baby. Plus, I want to do a water birth. Our tub in our place is tiny. The birthing center has an amazing tub. It's giant and pretty, and when I have my own house some day, I want a tub like it.

    Glad to hear the HG is lightening up a bit; I will continue to pray about this!!
