How Far Along? 21 weeks
Size of Baby: A banana (10.5 inches). Did anyone else notice that my little banana is now (according to my BabyBump app) 4 inches bigger than last week's measurement?! Unbelievable!
Gender: Baby girl.
Weight Gain: Lost a half of a pound from last week, so +3 from my pre-pregnancy weight since I'm reporting in whole numbers.
Maternity Clothes: Yesterday I treated myself to a few things at Pickles & Ice Cream, and boy, is it an adorable shop. I got a dress that is so beautiful and I can't wait to find a reason to wear it!
Nursery: Still an office, but I think I've got my color scheme nailed down. We saw an adorable dresser at Sleepy Poet last week that would make a great changing table.
Movement: Yes, a good amount! It's not uncomfortable at all (yet), just way cute.
Symptoms: One day last week I had a super-itchy belly -- must have been that 4" growth spurt she had. No stretch marks at all so far, which I attribute to a combination of genetics (thanks, Mom!) and three different belly oils that I use depending on my mood. :)
Sleep: Sleeping really well and waking up a little ahead of my alarm clock most mornings. Still going to bed around 10:30 or 11:00.
Cravings: My sweet tooth sort of subsided in the last week, noted mostly by my reduction in hot chocolate consumption. Probably a good thing -- it was getting a bit out of control.
What I Miss: Sitting down on the couch easily without sighing and grunting.
Best Moment This Week: My experience at Pickles & Ice Cream was so cute -- I was the only one in the store and the lady who was working there was just so sweet. She wanted me to model everything I tried on for her! She sat in an armchair outside of my dressing room and was just so much fun to talk with. It was such a fun way to spend an hour.
Looking Forward To: Baby's first Christmas (albeit in belly)!
