21 week Pregnancy Reflection

Don't forget to take my poll to the right of the page on your favorite pregnancy movie!!! :)

How far along?:  I am currently 21 weeks & 2 days along in my first pregnancy!  (About 19 weeks to go!)


Belly is finally getting big!

Size of the baby:  The baby is the size of a SPAGHETTI SQUASH this week!!!



1 lb. & 8 inches!

Gender:  It's a baby girl!  Still not settled on any particular name... and not sure we will be until we see her face but who knows! :)

I am feeling:  REALLY feeling my ligaments stretching this weekend.  It's not hurting but just very uncomfortable.  Even when we sat on the couch last night to watch a movie, I was even uncomfortable then!  I am thinking about getting some kind of tummy support band but going to ask around first to see how many pregnant ladies have used them & see how they did or didn't like them.  Other than that, just really happy. :)  And starting to get anxious when it comes to getting the nursery together!!!


Movement:  I don't feel the baby move a whole lot throughout the day - just at specific times she'll kick me over and over again and usually down low.

What I miss most:  Feeling good enough to work out whenever I'd like; not being sore for no specific reason; being able to sleep on my back; having a spare bedroom.... just random, small stuff like that.

What I'm excited about
:  I'm currently excited for my birthday in a few weeks!  I'm excited to see family during the holidays... even though that's still pretty far off.  Also excited about starting the prenatal fitness videos I recently got from the library.

Cravings/Aversions:  Umm... not craving anything in particular lately?  Loving that our favorite egg nog is finally out for the season!!!  Not many aversions either, just the smell of very greasy fried foods really turns me off.

Best egg nog, EVER! :)

Sleep:  I sleep whenever I'm tired... I swear, I can't stay awake these days if I am tired in the least bit!  And as soon as I decide to lay down at night, I'm out.  But it's just getting myself to fall asleep at a decent time...

Best moment of the week:  Pretty excited when I got my new items that I ordered from my favorite etsy seller, Owl Eyes!!!  Also, it was a great week for graciousness from friends -- still loving the coat, pack & play, & high chair I got earlier in the week!  It was a fun weekend celebrating my cousin Drew's 17th birthday and my mom's 49th birthday!

Our gorgeous pack & play from Brianna!  Can't wait to set a baby in there! :)

Our SUPER cute high chair from Brianna!

My aweeeesome maternity jacket from Sarah!!!!  (And it's pink -- SO fun!)

Still feeling like a very lucky duck.  Not looking forward to the week starting all over again, but you have to go through Monday in order to get to Friday... so I guess it's time to get Monday over with!  Hope your week is productive and a happy one, bloggies!!!

  1. Awww, you look so cute with your emerging bump! I didn't need a support belt throughout this pregnancy (I've been pretty lucky) but one of my friends suggested a support brace called Mother-to-be pregnancy support, which I guess you can get from Amazon for $40. She seems to swear by it...
