21 weeks.

I can't believe that we are already halfway through our pregnancy and already into our sixth month!!


How far along?  21 weeks
Weight Gain/Loss: up 6 pounds so far & I am proud to say that I can still button my blue jeans.
Sleep: Can't seem to get enough of it.
Best Moment This Week: Last week we got our 20 week 3D ultrasound..

Movements: Our baby is starting to move around more and more. The small 'thumps' that I feel are getting more and more frequent! 
Food Cravings/Aversions: I still crave Lays potato chips. Now I've started really craving fruits.. mostly green apples. I'm in love with sandwiches and salads. I'm not a huge fan of sweets and I'm still not a fan of chicken.
Pregnancy Symptoms: I am still having issues with round ligament pain & stretching.
What I miss: Being able to drink. I would love to have a class of wine right about now.
Stretch Marks: I haven't got any stretch marks and I'm in love with palmer's oil
Belly Button: My belly button was a severe inny due to my cord being cutt too short.. but you can start to see that it's emerging slowly.
Wedding Ring: Still fits
Mood: I get frustrated that I get so worn out so quickly. I'm not able to keep up with the stuff that I use to do without getting tired. Otherwise I'm in good spirits.
Labor Signs: none
Milestones: I hit the halfway mark & got our 20 week 3D ultrasound!
Upcoming appointments/events: We are almost finished with the nursery. Stagecoach is coming up in April and we have our baby shower in May.
What I look forward to: Finishing the nursery. Curtains should arrive this week and we are going to be putting the dresser together.



Everything is going great. I think that all the thoughts and plans I had for being pregnant are completely different. I thought I'd be at the gym all the time & I also thought that I'd be full of energy. So far those two things are very far from the reality. I also wasn't aware of round ligament pain, stretching pain, leg cramps during the night and I really wasn't ready for the foods that I crave.
It's also very frightening to think about how quickly this pregnancy is going and before I know it - it will be July!!

  1. I am beyond thrilled for you! July will be here before you know it! Don't feel too bad about being so tired - relax, rest, and enjoy it as much as you can. Everything will still be there for you to do tomorrow. :) Oh, and I side note... If you are having leg cramps at night, try drinking a glass of water or coconut water before bed. Bad thing is, you'll probably have to get up to go to the bathroom, but it should help with the pain. Hugs!

    1. Oh Thank you! I'll have to try the coconut water because the glass of water before bed isn't helping. We got our weekly pregnancy update yesterday and it said we have 18 weeks left.. I was really shocked!! It's going by so quickly.. I can't stop saying it because it feel unreal!
      Thank for you comments.. Hugs!
