I have a made a pretty important decision. I have decided to get my tubes tied when I have this baby. 2 is enough for me, one of each, I am done. Factory will be officially closed!
I also spoke with the doctor about scheduling the c-section. We looked at the calendar and August 2nd seemed like a good day. I will be officially scheduling it at my next OB appointment. Wow this all getting real..........and FAST.
Another thing I can barely believe is that I am up 30 pounds already! I don't feel like I've gained that much, and I don't look like I have but trust me that damn scale does not lie. I tried closing my eyes when they were weighing me, and when I thought they were done I opened my eyes but the girl was just sliding the thing to the next increment!! Ackkkk!!! My doctor said he is not concerned at all as I was very fit & in shape to begin with plus I gained 50 pounds with Ava so this is just par for the course.
Here's my 30 pounds of belly, hips & butt

Your Baby: Week 21
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.
