Here are the stats...
How Far Along: 21 weeks 6 days
Size of baby: A cantaloupe.
Sleep: Good! I love my body pillow. It doesn't exactly lend itself to cuddling but it's awesome.
Total Weight Gain: Around 13lbs. Yes 3lbs in a week. I know, my jaw dropped too. But also in the last week they estimate Baby Girl gained 4 ounces. She went for 14 ounces to 1lb 2 ounces. She's measuring a week ahead but the doc doesn't seem concerned! She's a big healthy girl.
Symptoms: A little sleepy but nothing unbearable. I'm waddling a little more and trying to realign my center of gravity while I walk.
Movement: Yes! I tend to feel her more at night and in the morning. Sometimes it takes me by surprise and then I remember there is a baby human growing inside of me. It really is a strange thing!
Maternity Clothes: Yes. Well over the majority of the time. A few of my pre-prego items still fit but the fit is much tighter.
Go-to eats: Smoothies. Hard boiled eggs. Homemade food. I can finally cook again.
Best moment of the week: We had our full anatomy scan on Monday (5/13/13) and she's perfect!! Side note: I'm beginning to think 13 is our family's lucky number. We brought our house in 2013, baby girl is coming in 9/13, the last 2 numbers of our house number are 13, and now this. I'll take it!
Gender: Our sweet GIRL!
What I wish people knew: Don't ask me about her name. We are still not telling!
What I’m looking forward to: We might paint her room this weekend. And I got some fabric to make her a blanket. Let the nesting begin.
Milestones: She has a pattern of her activity and moving, mostly in the morning and evening. She has eyebrows and lids and her girl parts are formed!
Here's my most recent belly pic. I was exactly 21 weeks. It was my first Mother's Day!
