Pregnancy Survey: 21 weeks!

How far along? 21 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: Gained between 10 and 15lbs give or take.

Maternity clothes? Started wearing them. Have one pair of pants, two dresses, and several cute shirts. I like the maternity clothing because it really pronounces my bump. Also at this point, they are a lot more comfy. I have my size 10 jeans (pre-pregnancy size 6) that are comfortable now and not falling off as much!

Stretch marks? None on belly – just the ones on my thighs from previous weight gain.

Sleep: Starting to not get as much. Getting up a lot to go pee or because I’m uncomfortable. Hip and back pain.

Best moment this week: Feeling the baby tapping inside me!

Movement: Anterior placenta so mostly just feel a tapping feeling though it has been getting way more frequent!

Food cravings: Comfort foods. Pretty much anything that I can’t have.

Gender: A little baby boy =)

Labor Signs: better not be getting any of those any time soon…

Belly Button in or out? Still super in…

Wedding rings on or off? On and still pretty loose. Constantly fixing them. I really want to get them sautered…

What I miss: My size six jeans.

What I am looking forward to: Curling up with my baby boy! A sooner experience: feeling him really move so Nate and Em can possible feel him kicking around in there.

Weekly Wisdom: Do not try to sleep through having to go pee. It is way more painful than the 2 minutes it takes to just go to the bathroom…

Milestones: Looking into signing up for birth classes!

  1. Okay, I'll play along:

    How far along? 20 weeks tomorrow

    Total weight gain/loss: 4 lbs.

    Maternity clothes? Starting wearing at 15 weeks. My tummy was so uncomfortable I had to make the switch to the jeans at least. Shirts I still try to get by with, but looking much more pregnant-cute in maternity tops, too.

    Stretch marks? Already there, mostly around my belly button.

    Sleep: I bought a Snoogle pillow and boppy belly wedge and am now sleeping so much better. I'm still taking a combo of B6 and Unisom for nausea, which also knocks me out at night, so that is nice.

    Best moment this week: I had three little 'bubbles' that made me go, "What was that?" I think it was the baby. I don't know how else to explain it.

    Movement: Not yet, except for the three little 'bubbles'.

    Food cravings: Bran flakes with 2% milk. I didn't drink dairy prior to pregnancy, so that's a bit of a shift. Last week it was grapefruit juice. The week before that it was blueberry yogurt.

    Gender: A baby boy =)

    Labor Signs: Not yet!

    Belly Button in or out? still in. I wonder... does everyone's pop?

    Wedding rings on or off? Still on. I haven't had any swelling yet luckily. Trying to down lots of water to prevent it.

    What I miss: All my cool artsy pre-pregnancy clothes.

    What I am looking forward to: Feeling more movement and another ultrasound tomorrow.

    Weekly Wisdom: Eat at the first sign of hunger. Keeps the tummy happy.

    Milestones: Announcing gender to my co-workers. We had an office pool and then drew a winner from those who guessed right. It was fun.
