Baby R2: 21 Weeks!

How far along: Twenty-one weeks.

How big is the baby: Approximately 10.5 inches long - about the length of a carrot! Baby averages 3/4 of a lb. at this point. Eyebrows and lids are now present.

Weight gain/loss: Up 11 lbs. Praise the lord no gain in the past week!

Sleep: Not too horrible. I've been waking up around 4 a.m. on the daily for a bathroom break and some days its easier to fall back asleep than others but no real complaints.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I want berries and carbs!

Gender: Still thinking girl.

Movement: Really picking up and it's all very LOW.

Worries: Nada

The belly: Transitioning into more maternity clothes. I didn't realize that starting pregnancy 20 lbs. lighter would mean most of those pants would be waaaaay too big as well. I'm kinda ready for spring and to wear dresses (and get a spray tan!)


What I'm Loving: Feeling movement.

Symptoms: Thankfully a lot of the back/leg pain has gone away as I've been doing regular exercise and it's a huge help. The horrible acne is beginning to clear up as well. I think the boobs are really starting to grow now though - my sports bras are beginning to overflow, it seems!

Milestones: Well, we are starting to work on Cooper's big boy room which makes me very happy. Since the nursery was gender-neutral because we only wanted to do one, he gets a new room (lucky kid.) We bought the furniture last weekend and are beginning to clear out the room so it can be painted.

What's different this time: I don't have that wonderful burst of energy yet, so I'm pretty much not expecting it. :/ 

What I'm looking forward to: The anatomy scan! (This was actually yesterday, but I'll wait until next week to recap since my change day is technically Tuesday.)

Best moment of the week: Cooper is getting more excited about the baby, which makes me happy!

  1. That energy that's supposed to kick in in the 2nd trimester is pretty much non-existent with a toddler around. ;) You're looking great!
