21 Weeks


I'm trying to do bump pictures every so often because I know people like them, but I still maintain that they're kind of awkward to take. So I'm 21 weeks! That means I'm on the other side of halfway. :)

Continuing my little update survey that I stole...

How far along: 21 Weeks
Baby's size: 1 lb! (and banana length apparently)
Sleep: Sleeping okay, occasional restless nights.
Maternity Clothes: I've more or less transitioned into maternity clothes. 
Food cravings: I'm not craving anything but I've been eating far too much sugar as of late.
Food aversions: Nothing at the moment.
Symptoms I have: Still must be having the most typical pregnancy ever since my symptoms always match what my weekly e-mail says. Right now it's stretch marks, leg cramps, and just general tiredness. But overall, feeling really great!
Doctor’s Appointment: My last appointment was great, I won't have another til the end of this month.
Movement: YES! I'm feeling him kick a lot now, but it's still too soft for anyone else to feel other than me. 
Belly Button: Innie...hangin in there.
Gender: BOY! :)
What I’m looking forward to: My NC baby shower in less than 2 weeks! 
What I miss: At the end of a really exhausting day recently I turned to John Paul and said "I already sort of miss being selfish". Anytime I just want to sleep for hours I immediately start thinking about how that's never going to happen again in a few months time. I get tired just thinkin about it, haha.


  1. I totally agree with you re: the "I already miss being selfish" thing...

  2. i just had my baby 11 days ago and i have been fine with sleeping. he wakes up every two and half hours and i just change him and feed him and he falls right back to sleep. i don't have a partner, so i'm the one always getting up to take care of him. i don't mind it at all. i don't think you will either. and when they say rest up before the baby comes... that can only work for like the night before! like don't go into labor sleep deprived, because when you're at the hospital you'll have nurses galore checking on you, if not not then your baby boy will be waking you up. anyhow, cute pictures. they're not awkward! :)



  3. You are over half way there! Go mama, go!

  4. I can't believe you're that far along already! You look great, your little bump is so cute!
