21-week Update

Caution - all things pregnancy discussed.

I hope Dawn doesn't mind my copying her format. I want to chronicle a pregnancy status update.

How far along? 21 weeks

Total weight gained? 11 pounds (this picture makes me look tinier than I really am - my butt and thighs feel out of control)

Maternity clothes: Bought my second maternity shirt today. Mostly just wearing long shirts and cardigans. Maternity pants - yes - but because they are so stretchy, they tend to slide down each time I stand up after sitting. I have to keep hiking them up.

Sleep: Trouble sleeping on my side. I was a belly-sleeper. Awake a lot during the night.

Best Moment of the Week: While awake at 3:30 am last night, I think I felt baby boy move! Weird belly bubble sensations. Interesting.

Food Craving: No. I always liked sweets!

Food Aversions: No.

Morning Sickness: None.

Belly Button: Same deep innie it's always been.

Wedding rings: Still on.

What I Miss: Pants that don't slide down, sushi, wine.

What I Love: My bump.

What I'm looking forward to: Finally getting my hair cut and colored this week!

Milestone: Half way through my pregnancy!

Purchases: Today I bought myself one mat shirt, a bigger bra and one cute baby outfit that says "My Mommy Loves Me"...because I do!

Wow - your picture looks great! What a cute little bump, I don't blame you for loving it! :) At 21w, I was wearing nothing but maternity clothes, no way could I wear my regular shirts. Sounds like a great pregnancy so far, no food aversions or cravings or sickness. And I bet that was your little boy moving - it's hard to tell at first, but it does feel like bubbles in the beginning. That's the greatest feeling!!!

Your bump is adorable! I felt my little guy moving around around then also and at first it feels like little bubbles/flutters. I bet that was him you felt!

Sweet! And what a cute little baby bump you have there. :)

I totally love your bump too!! I think I may be going for a hair-restyle this week also, so hopefully I can show off my bump sometime soon next year :o)

Lots of love, Fran

OMG, you are like a tiny twig with a cute little bump! I am insanely jealous of how great you look pregnant (and of course, of the fact that you ARE pregnant!) and I'm so happy you have passed the 1/2 way point. Best of luck!

Oh and I still owe you an email back! Will do that soon!

You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.
