21 Weeks

In the 19 week post, I thought I had sunk to a new low: posting a weekly update without an accompanying picture.

Oh, but one can go even lower, and forget to post for an entire week completely.

Welcome to the new low.

Oh, but all is not lost.

In the words of Harry from Dumb and Dumber, "You go and do something like this...and TOTALLY redeem yourself!"

I have 1) organized myself so that I am not posting this update on the last possible day of the week, and 2) taken pictures of myself this week. Hooray all around for me!



How far along? 21 weeks and 2 days
Total weight gain:  8 pounds. 
Maternity clothes: Pretty much all the time. Amber and I went through my closet to organize my maternity and non-maternity clothes this weekend, and I found a few things from pre-maternity that I didn't think I could wear, but can. Yay for impromptu maternity closet additions!
Sleep: Still tired all the time. If I don't get my quick afternoon nap in, I'm cross-eyed by 9 PM.
Best moment this week: Getting to see Britton on the ultrasound!
Miss anything? My waist. The ability to bend over. Not aching at the end of the day from crouching over my growing belly.
Movement:  All the time! She got super excited at dinner last night (a work function for my mom) and tonight (Five Guys with my sister). The little lady likes dinnertime!
Food cravings:  I'm back to normal this week--nothing's really jumping out at me right now.
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Please, please, please let this part of pregnancy be over. I haven't gagged or been queasy in two weeks.
Gender:  Girl! Her name is Britton.
Labor signs: Definitely not. Stay in there, Tadpole!

Symptoms: Much bigger belly, heartburn, tiredness
Belly button in or out? Still in, but it's thinking about making a run for it.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time:  Pretty happy, though I did get overwhelmed when I was tired the other day and kind of/ sort of messed up Landon's haircut (though he still says it looks okay). Crying ensued.
Looking forward to: Meeting baby girl! And buying more baby clothes for her. My mom, sister and I went out on Saturday to raid the sales in the local children's departments, and Britton is already one well-dressed little lady.
