21 Weeks

This week:
Denver gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for hydration and nutrition and to practice swallowing & 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. We had an appointment last week to check on baby D, and he was doing very well! Growing according to schedule and so is my belly! I've only gained 2 pounds since conception (I've really been trying to watch it), and we get to go back next week for an ultrasound (the Dr. had to rush out to deliver a baby last time). Can't wait to see our sweet baby boy again!
