Bump Update: 21 Weeks

How far along? 21 Weeks 5 Days

Total weight gain/loss: 0 lbs. I am now back at my pre-pregnancy weight. It took awhile before I started gaining what I lost from the m/s, but once it started it never stopped. I am caught up now, so it can slow back down to the normal rate anytime. My appetite is hellacious these days!

Maternity clothes? I've ditched the belly band and am pretty much full force maternity clothes. Although I still wear some of my regular shirts that stretch well.

Stretch marks? Still none yet and I am totally fine with it staying that way. Still using the Palmer's and greasing myself up nightly with this "magic" oil stuff. If I get them at least I can say I tried, right?

Sleep: This is getting a little better. Seems like only on occasion I have to get up in the middle of the night to pee. I am also sleeping with this dandy little thing. Can we say in love!

Boppy Pregnancy Cuddle Pillow
Movement: Baby R is moving like crazy and I can FEEL it! It is so amazing. Hubby has felt her move a few times. It was truly a great moment for us! I love watching my belly when the movement gets strong I can see my stomach actually move. It's crazy and awesome!

Food cravings: At this point I am just loving food, maybe too much. Just trying my best to eat as healthy as possible.

Gender: Baby Girl!

Labor Signs: Again, none, and so thankful for that!

Belly Button in or out? In, but still thinking that it will pop. It almost fully flush with my stomach now.

Weekly Wisdom: I used to think that it was going to be so fun shopping for maternity clothes. I am so picky and it just seems like most things just don't fit right. I completely forgot that I had made that statement about looking forward to maternity clothes, until my sweet Hubby reminded me. Oh boy was I wrong.

Milestones: Being at the over halfway there point. :)

What I'm Looking Forward To: Painting the baby's room. Hoping that will be done in the next week or so.

21 Weeks:

You look amazing!! Thanks for the comment on my blog, and i did find one at Target that I have been using for the last week. I don't look forward to maternity clothes shopping at all, i hate to shop normally so i imagine i am going to try to put it off as long as possible.
