21 Weeks

 
 
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 21 weeks 3 days
Size of baby: Baby is around the size of a spaghetti squash (8in, 1lb)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: up almost 7lbs now.
Maternity Clothes: maternity shorts fit!
Gender: The doctor told us today that she's 95-98% sure it's a girl. But she won't guarantee it. She won't do another ultrasound because I'm healthy and it's not needed. Whatever.
My MIL works at a hospital and there's a doctor there that will do another ultrasound for FREE. We will probably wait a few weeks before doing another one.
Movement: Lots of movement. I need to pay attention more and see if it's consistent.
Sleep: I've been sleeping ok. When I was in Tennessee this past weekend, I was so exhausted that I slept awesome. The last few nights I've been up at least 3 times to pee.  
What I miss: running for long periods of time/working out hardcore, beer, and sushi.
Cravings: nothing specific this week. I still dig bacon, but I don't HAVE to have it.
Symptoms: Heartburn. Lots and lots and lots of heartburn.
 
And here's a close up

That's a big ol' belly!
