Of course I'm behind again! I'm 21 weeks and 5 days now. :)
Photo taken at 21 weeks and 2 days.
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!! :)
