21 weeks

I am 21 weeks and counting! It's crazy how time has been flying. My guess is because I have been so busy with student teaching and Eric with his job. Well, we're happy to report that the baby is doing well and is healthy! We had our 20 week appt. ultrasound and I can't believe how much bigger our little guy is! It's kinda fun to compare ultrasound pictures from 12 and 16 weeks and see the growth.

I did find out something interesting at the ultrasound though... Apparently I have an anterior placenta. Nothing to worry about, but it explains why I haven't been able to feel strong movements from the baby. The placenta is closer to my stomach, so it is temporarily acting like a cushion and absorbing little kicks and punches. Luckily, I think, that shouldn't last for much longer as the baby gets bigger and stronger. Anyway, we are just so excited for our little guy to make his grand debut to the world! We have already received (or I guess baby boy has) some presents for the baby. That just makes us a little more anxious! Haha. Gotta be patient though!

In other news, my teacher work sample is turned in and I am praying I pass it! The teacher work sample is a huge project I had to do for student teaching and I have to pass it before I graduate. Also, I am now student teaching in a 6th grade classroom and so far I'm enjoying it! The students are a lot of fun and I have a great mentor teacher. As much fun as teaching is, it's also pretty stressful and tiring (especially when pregnant). Therefore, I am really looking forward to December when I will be graduating! A break will be very welcome and I can have a few months to really get ready for the baby. Woohoo!

Anyway, time to be productive! So long, dear blog!
