My 21st week of pregnancy

You are currently viewing My 21st week of pregnancy

What week?

I’m 21 weeks pregnant

How big is the baby?

According my latest ultrasound, he is 26 cm for 450g. Bb#3 is in the 95th percentile so he is very tall ! 

Something special this week?

2 ultrasounds in less than a week !

My gynecologist always makes separate appointments for the monthly pregnancy check and the trimester ultrasound. I went to go and see her on Friday and on Tuesday, so I could see the baby twice !

Most exciting moment?

Sharing the second ultrasound with both my husband and Mr A.

It was a lovely gift from my gynecologist as with all the  Covid19 restrictions, children are not allowed in medical offices.

Therefore I had two very motivated and interested commentators about what was on screen.

Most challenging moment?

I’m still struggling against different offices from the French administration.

And in every field : family, disability, unemployment… It’s really exhausting to try to connect, always sending reminders and defending my case… with no successes !

What’s new doctor?​

Very great news from the baby who is growing up nicely !

He moves, he kicks and develops as he is supposed to be. It was so moving to watch on screen his little fingers and toes and seeing him completely, looking like a beautiful tiny baby !

And the news are not as bad as the substitute gynecologist told me before. There is not too much liquid and the baby is just tall, not big ! And according to their scale I haven’t gained weight in a month !

However, I’ve been trying to get an endocrinologist appointment. It has been hard to have one. I’ve tried 6 different doctors before getting an appointment before my due date !

Weight ?


Things are getting better there too.

Nutrition ?

The results are better but I was a bit demotivated with my difficulties to get an endocrinologist appointment.

To celebrate their coming back home, we went with my husband and Mr A to test a new vegan burger restaurant. It was delicious but we were so full we only watched Little H eating dinner in the evening !)

Movement ?

I’m still following  Tammy’s prenatal program masterclass from Flos Motherhoods  and that’s all. These last days were so full of work I didn’t had time for anything else ! 

Motivation ?

Working, resting.

It really was my motto for the two past weeks. I was really focused on these two objectives. Back to school is coming very soon and I have plenty of work to do for my customers.

I also had the beautiful surprise to see one of my articles published on my favorite parenting blog Your Zen Mama!

Self Care ?

My little business corner is done !

My office is just finished and it makes me really happy. I feel good working there and it reminds me of my tiny flat when I was a student.

Reflexions ?

It strikes me how much I need to find a balance between my 3 highest values.

My business, my family and my self-care are really the most important for feeling rooted and balanced. And I’m used to always favouring one at the expense of the others. That’s the reason why I feel my frustration growing with the weeks. Being aware of it is a thing, acting to change things and to find a way to balance them all is another, especially with the new school year to come…
