21 Weeks Pregnant

Of course I'm behind again!  I'm 21 weeks and 5 days now.  :)

When I was pregnant with Maggie.

How far along: 21 weeks

Size of Baby: 10.5 inches from head to heel & 12.7 oz

Fruit/vegetable comparison: Carrot

Total weight gain: Still down a pound from my pre pregnancy weight.  This time around I've definitely felt sick.  Even last week I actually got sick a couple of times.  But I do feel my appetite maybe coming back!

Sleep: Pretty good.  I can feel the heartburn coming back when I sleep.  I keep a bottle of fruity tums next to my bed and purchased this amazing pregnancy pillow set which seems to really help.

Movement: This baby is a mover and a shaker!  Ryan started to feel the baby move around 18 weeks, and I'm already feeling jabs in my sides and upper ribs!

Unglamorous body changes: I'm already starting to feel Braxton Hicks contractions.  At first I was confused with what I was feeling and then the memories came back.  Ha!  It's such a weird sensation!

Maternity Clothes? Yep!  Still getting away with non maternity tops.

Showing: I think I'm a little larger this pregnancy in the belly but my right side is bigger than the left like last time!

What I miss: Not having the stretching pain in my belly every time I sneeze or get up too quickly.  ;)

Best moment this week: Two of my best friends gave birth to their babies this week!  

Looking forward to: Traveling home to the States to see family & friends and meeting my friend's sweet babies!  We are still trying to nail down our baby's name too!

We announced a few weeks ago what the sex of our baby was on Facebook and Instagram, but I'll do a formal post on here later this week.  Stay tuned!! :)
