How Far Along: 21 Weeks
Size of baby: At my ultrasound last week she was 12 oz so I am assuming somewhere around there. According to babycenter.com she should be around 10.5 inches long, the length of a carrot.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 5 lbs
Maternity Clothes: I wore a non-maternity shirt yesterday and it was getting pretty tight...there are still a few things that fit fine but my work pants are all maternity and I need the belly band for my jeans. Dresses are still non maternity as well.
Movement: Its great! It is such a God given gift, especially for this over emotional worried pregnant lady...
Sleep: I have developed some sleeping issues and they are no fun! I have been getting progesterone shots weekly & have wonderful bruises on each hip (that I am very grateful for). I am a side & stomach sleeper and since sleeping on my stomach isnt really working out, each time I turn onto my side I wake up in pain...well it makes it an interesting night...
Symptoms: It seems that if I "overdo" it at all, I start to have contractions. So I have been trying to take it a little more easy!
Cravings: Sweets, Licorice, chips, beef pickles & Simply lemonade, the raspberry kind.
Best Moment this week: feeling movement is always the best moment for me. She always moves especially after I eat, which I just love (eating & feeling her move :)
What I am looking forward to: A nice relaxing weekend!
Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend!
