21 weeks and still truckin along!

Happy Thursday!

We are 21 weeks this week. Things are progressing nicely! The girls are kicking like crazy (especially at night and after lunch) and Si has had fun trying to feel them=). Some of the not so nice pregnancy things are starting to set in though. . . pelvic pressure and the feeling that I CONSTANTLY have to pee are new on the agenda this week. Oh, and we can't forget about our friend Braxton Hicks contractions - yup - throw some of those in there too! Funny how last week I didn't have any of these issues (except the occasional BH contraction) and this week I've been steam-rolled with new issues!

I did call my OB about the pelvic pressure and the constant feeling that I needed to pee - and they thought that maybe I had a bladder infection or a UTI. So, they requested that I come into the clinic quick and pee in a cup. They told me if I came in that they would do a fun ultrasound scan just so I could see the girls. Do they know how to get me to come in or what? I was there in under 30 minutes!

The "sample" was totally clean - no UTI or bladder infection. But, they decided today that they are going to treat me for an infection anyway. Sometimes apparently they can hide and my symptoms indicate that I may have one. Fine by me. I'd rather be treated just in case! As for the ultrasound - the girls look wonderful as always! She tried to get some 4D pictures of the girls for me, but they still look like creepy aliens on the 4D! I still love them though! =)

Oh, and of course we have belly pics for you! Si just took new ones tonight. So, here is your picture fix for the week. Me at 21 weeks 2 days.

Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!! Stay safe (and cool)!


  1. Perfect Picture! You look marvelous! Those BH's are a b$#ch! Take it easy and rest up with some pink lemonade when you feel them come on. Stupid Nebraska heat and humidity!

  2. You look fabulous. I feel you on the pelvic pain. Mine has gotten pretty unbearable recently. Twins really do a number on the body that's for sure! Hope your discomfort is short lived.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
