This last week has gone by so quickly. I have a feeling that is going to be the case for my remaining 19 weeks! Here we are at week 21 of my baby bump week to week journal.
How far along: 21 Weeks
How big is baby: Baby is the size of a pomegranate.
Gender: Its a boy!
Weight gain: I will guess I am holding steady around 12 to 13 pounds so far.
Maternity clothes: I finally received my Old Navy haul in the mail. I must admit, I am pleasantly surprised with the quality and fit of everything. I’m wearing my flowy black and white pants in my picture above. Unfortunately it has been too darn cold to wear my maxi dresses!
Sleep: Sleeping continues to be better and more regular, but I cannot say I ever feel rested.
Best moment this week: This week has been rather hectic. My favorite moment(s) are laying in bed at night, watching this little man kick away at my tummy. He is stubborn though. Trying to catch it on video, or letting daddy feel it… nope!
Miss anything: I am only missing the sunshine. But that is not pregnancy related I suppose.
Movement: As I noted above, he is increasingly active. I feel movements throughout the day, and his kicks and punches are strong. He is most active mid-morning, and at night. And he sure is an early riser!
Cravings: Burger King Whoppers. And Chipotle chicken soft tacos with ample globs of guacamole. And iced tea!
Symptoms: No big changes here. I am still having frequent pains in my ribs and my back. I am also finding that I have lots of tummy discomfort if I eat meals that are too big. Otherwise, I am feeling pretty good!
Looking forward to: I am looking forward to each new day! I may be strange, but I am in awe of this pregnancy. Every day, something new happens. I am trying to enjoy every moment.
