21 Week Bumpdate

21 weeks (2) copy
Photo notes: This was before the jar of spaghetti sauce and I fought for fifteen minutes...it won...and my white shirts became splattered red.  Oh, and all this only two days after I spilled orange Fanta on another white shirt.  I should add "clumsiness" to my symptoms...

How far along: 21 weeks!
Baby: Is the size of a banana!
Total Weight Gained: Unknown. As of last doctors appt...a total of 0 (back at starting weight)...but I'm pretty sure that I'll have a jump by my next appt. in 3 weeks.
Sleep: Some nights better than others. Wedged between two pillows really helps support the belly and back. 
Maternity Clothes: Pants are becoming a must, unless they are are (non-maternity) stretchy pants. Luckily I have some gaucho capri's for work, they're my fav. to wear during the week.  No shirts yet. 
Best Moment of the Week: Hubby feeling her move more and her furniture arriving! AND on Mothers Day, Addison's gift was making my tummy move with her kicks :) First time I have seen that and it was so amazing. 
Food Cravings: Anything cool and fresh...water with lemon, fruits, veges, salads.  
Aversions: shrimp and I don't know why... maybe because I'm afraid of the smell. And thinking of hot dogs grosses me out.  
Symptoms: indigestion (much less thanks to Pepcid), back pain (increasing), round ligament pain (ouch), and preggo brain.
Movement: pretty often, I'm feeling her movement higher in my stomach now which feels even weirder :) I love every one of them though, especially when I'm just laying there quietly. 
Gender: Little Girl Addison Mae.
What I miss: sleeping on my back
What I'm looking forward to: starting her nursery! Now that the furniture & mattress is in we just have to paint and everything should fall into place fairly fast! I'm going to enjoy each step of this process :) 
Weekly Wisdom: the "good parts" of pregnancy does come! Hang on if you're in the first trimester. It gets better by the day.  I feel like I'm actually starting to enjoy being pregnant, minus a couple things.  It's getting much more exciting! 
Milestones: In the second half of the second trimester!  On one hand 19 weeks seems like a long time to go, on the other hand I can't believe in only 19 weeks I will be holding my daughter!




My sweet pea is getting bigger!

Aww enjoy making the nursery! So fun - and you know you won't have the time to do it again for the next kiddo, so it's really a precious time. :)
