21 Weeks

How far along: 21 weeks

How big is baby:

According to the Bump, Baby is the size of a pomegranate- 10.5" and 12.7 oz (though it measured 13 oz at my appointment LAST week... giant Humphreys babies FTW).
At 21 weeks:
  • As her digestive system preps for the outside world, she's manufacturing meconium -- the tarry black substance you'll find in her first dirty diaper
  • If it's a girl, she's already got a lifetime's supply of eggs in her womb -- about six million of them!

Weight gain/loss:
Don't know.

Stretch marks/belly button:
Same as normal.

Sleep: Still sleeping well! 1-2 pees/night (but this has always been the case for me and my small bladder)

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: No cravings, my only aversion is still hummus. I feel like I might be over that, but I don't want to spend the money on a container (again) to open it and find out I still don't want it (again).

Movement: Yes. Pretty frequently. I have noticed when I have a cup of (half caf) coffee or something sweet, the baby starts moving within 10-15 minutes. At night time when I lay on the sofa and watch TV I definitely notice a lot of movement too.

What I'm loving: We got another box of (wicked cute!) hand me down infant clothes this weekend.. ah so stinkin tiny and cute. Also how productive I was this weekend! I prepped supper for 3 nights so that they can just be baked after work, I diced & froze 15 peppers, made pumpkin doughnuts, made a big pot of soup for lunches, made laundry detergent, breakfast sausages and 2 bottle of chocolate syrup. BOOM.

Symptoms: Nothing. Mayyybe more hungry than normal, but not too bad.

What I'm looking forward to:
Meeting the baby, finding out if it is a boy or girl. And my shower! Amanda and I started talking about it this weekend and I got excited about it!

Best moment of the week: 
We went to Babies R Us on Saturday afternoon to take a look around and ended up doing a registry. It was super overwhelming and stressful, but I was glad I had already researched, so we could just knock the registry out of the way. No way in heck do I want to be going back there again..

How I'm feeling: Good.. normal.. I hate this question (and people ask it in person all.the.time.) because I literally don't feel any different than normal... except that there is a human moving inside of me.

You look great! Isn't it weird how the baby moves so much more when we are relaxed and laying down?

You look so good!

I can't believe that a baby girl at this stage already has so many eggs! Crazy!

Happy 21 weeks!

You look great! Love that belly!
Are you going to find out the sex of the baby or wait until he/she is born to find out?

Thanks! We aren't going to find out until birthday!
