We're 21 weeks today! More than halfway done cooking this muffin!

That means the baby is banana sized (not those wimpy organic banana's either) about 10.5 inches long and 12oz! Growing like crazy!

I can feel him all the time now - a lot of action today (especially as he kicks at what feels like my cervix).

I'm definitely feeling pregnant at this point. Its nice to have a little belly, but depending on the clothes - you still can't really tell. Our midwives tell us that I'll be popping for sure in the next couple of weeks.

We signed up for our homebirth class today. I'm excited to get to meet other homebirth parents and also just to get a better idea of what we should be doing to prepare for pain management and labor in general. I'm not thinking too much about labor at this point, but I have total confidence in my ability to birth this baby and in my midwives to make any medical calls necessary.

We are thrilled with our choice of Ami and Nancy and feel so completely supported by them. We totally look forward to our visits and feel like a good friend is coming to visit everytime they come over.

So far, little Turner is growing perfectly, right on track. We like that.
