So, every week The Nest (which is actually now The Bump), posts a picture and a description of how big the baby is. At 21 weeks, Tofurkey is the size of a banana. I find this odd, b/c last week he was the size of a whole cantaloupe; one would think that a banana is smaller than a cantaloupe!

This is what The Bump has to say about Tofurkey this week:

Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for hydration and nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies are most interested in tastes they've already experienced through amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you want your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch.

21 weeks today!

And sorry...still no belly pics to post! I hope I don't regret it down the line. I'll take some this weekend and think about posting them. To this date, there is still no weight gain; however, every morning when I get dressed I play the "Do I look fat or pregnant" game.
The other night I did a prenatal yoga class through CSMC with some fellow nesties, and I loved it! I plan on doing it throughout my pregnancy. I had bought a video, but it's not the same. The instructor was great and the rest of the class seemed like a great bunch of ladies. Going to the class, and being with 2 of my friends, reminded me of parts of the book Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner (which I had read during my trip to California). I highly recommend it; it's about 3 friends that had met in a prenatal yoga class. If you're looking for a good read, go for it!
Well, this is the start of my promise to blog to all!!!

We're having a.....

BOY! I was completely shocked, but we are both extremely thrilled! So far, so good...he is perfectly healthy weighing in at approximately 13 oz and measuring at 20w3d (yesterday), with a strong heartbeat at 141 bpm. Everything measured well, and now we are only missing the feet measurements (we'll, and the dr, will be looking for those at our next appt). And to answer the #1 question, we have not yet agreed on a name, but no worries we're working on it! Here are some pictures for your enjoyment: If you need help finding the "goods", let us know!
