21 Week Update

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far along? 21 weeks 1 day

Size of the Baby? a banana or a carrot (for length) but the best one I've heard for size and weight is a bottle of root beer. haha

Maternity Clothes? yep

Gender? Pink

Movement? Saturday during the STRESSFUL Clemson game I thought I was feeling her squirm around, I lifted up my shirt and right when I put my hand on there, I saw and felt her kick out!! I made matt put his hand on it for a solid 10 minutes but she didn't give us another one. Since then I haven't felt a solid kick like that, but I did feel what seemed like she rolled all the way over, last night. One side of my belly was really hard and then I felt her do a flip and the other side was hard. It was really cool! I still want her to move more though!

Sleep? Still on the decline. The past three nights I've not fallen asleep until after 4 am. Thank goodness I don't have to be up and and work in the mornings. I would be a zombie. Trying to get as much sleep as I can before she gets here :)

Cravings? Still Coke, and Dr. Pepper. and Golden Delicious Apples.

Symptoms? still feel awesome!!!

What I miss? We went to the Mountains for our anniversary this weekend with my brother and Janey. They were all drinking Shock Top Pumpkin Ale. Smelled AMAZING. Really wanted one,

Milestones? Feeling her kick :)

Weight Gain? Yesterday morning it was 7 lbs this morning 6 lbs. I'm still proud of myself though, bc everything I read says I could have gained anywhere from 9 to 16 lbs by now. I have a feeling it'll catch up with me :)

What I’m nervous about? nothing. I feel a great peace this week.

What I’m excited about? Her arrival!!! I got to go meet sweet baby Yates Dover yesterday. At only 3 days old, he's the smallest thing to ever capture my heart. Suzy had a wonderfully easy labor and delivery story to share with me and helped calm my nerves on some things. Holding that tiny angel made me SOOOO anxious and excited for February to get here!!! I cannot wait!

Also, Matt and I are going to register tonight at Buy Buy Baby!! :)

Baby Center Update for Week 21:
Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long —the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she's practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you're having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.
