21 Weeks Today

How far along?: 21 weeks

How big is baby?: about 3/4 of a pound and 10.5 inches crown to rump measurement - about the size of a banana!

Weight Gain/Loss: 12 lbs total weight gain

Maternity clothes?: Oh yes!

Stretch marks?: Nope ::knock on wood::

Sleep?: has been good! I feel pretty tired this week-its been a crazy busy week so I just need to get caught up and have some down time to myself!

Best moment this week?: hearing baby's heart beat at our last appointment

Food cravings: just sweet stuff like candy and cookies and anything bad for me-I'm just trying have a little self control-lol

Gender: Team Green!

Belly button in or out?: In

Movement?: yes-the past couple of days baby has been treating my uterus like a trampoline! lol It's awesome thoughh-I love every minute! Poor John keep trying to put his hand on my belly to feel but so far hasn't felt it, still not strong enough to be felt from the outside yet!

What I miss?: again-nothing at all!

What I'm looking forward to: We're going to paint the nursery very soon-stay tuned for pictures!! EXCITING!

Weekly wisdom: a baby website I follow says this: "Your baby can now hear your conversations. If you talk, read, or sing to your baby, expect her to hear you." So after hearing this we have been talking to baby even more than we were already doing before. I must look like a crazy person talking away in my car! lol

Milestones: More than half way there now and on the downward side of the countdown! Can't wait til Christmas-haha!
