21 Weeks

IMG_3512How far along: 21 weeks – seriously, where did that belly come from?
Baby is the size of: A carrot!
Gender:
  Surprise until March…but we are kind of leaning more one direction lately.
Weight gain: 10 pounds at my last checkup, but judging by this picture a LOT more already.
Maternity clothes:
Mostly maternity clothes now, but got some new open sweaters that I really like.
Stretch marks:
None yet!!
Belly button in or out:
  Still in, turkey’s not done yet.
Sleep: Been OK. But rolling over has been more uncomfortable lately and I wake up every single time I have to move.
Best moment this week:
FINALLY being able to paint the spare room turned nursery!
Worst moment this week: Painting. HAHA
Miss anything:
Sleeping on my stomach. And deli sandwiches. But I totally splurged and had a roast beast sammy. I HAD to…otherwise I probably would have died.
Movement:
Not a whole lot..this child is awfully docile. Either that or it’s way smaller than they think it is! (of course right now it decides to start kicking like crazy!)
Cravings: Still that ground beef!
Queasy or sick:
Nope!! This is definitely the most exciting part of pregnancy I think..and most enjoyable.
Labor Signs:
No labor signs, keep those away for a few more months please.
Symptoms:
Not really much of anything going on lately. It’s kind of nice.
Wedding rings on or off: On. I have the cold months on my side – my fingers tend to shrink from the weather.
Looking forward to:
Nesting for real. Walls are painted, new ceiling fan is hung thanks to my wonderful hubby who doesn’t get frustrated with anything! The room is SO cozy I want to live in there. Just have to move the bed out after the holidays, make one more storage trip and we can officially nest. 🙂

IMG_3515My little handyman and new Grey walls. LOVE them.

IMG_3504And I wanted to share my little jacket thing…I want to call it a cloak…or peplum but it’s really neither. It was one if my finds at that yard sale a few weeks back. It’s super warm and perfect for this time of year to fit over my ever growing belly! I love it. It’s Scooter Brown brand which I have never heard of, either way it’s super cute! Also, still in my pre-preg skinny jeans with a Bellaband holding them up. I do enjoy that thing – but I have to be honest, I can’t wait to get home and unwrap myself from all these clothes.
