Along: 21 weeks
Size of baby: Baby is length of a banana. Little buddy sleeps 12-24 hours every day. The arms and legs are now proportionate and eyebrows are forming. There is rapid brain growth this week while the skeleton continues to harder.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 12 pounds I would guess
Maternity Clothes: Pants are mostly all maternity at this point. The tops/dresses are a mixture.
Gender: This week we still think boy.
Movement: Baby’s favorite time to jiggle and wiggle is around 5am-8am and then again at night around 9pm-midnight. I LOVE IT!
Sleep: This is real hit or miss. It’s mostly a miss, but it happens every pregnancy so I’m not too surprised.
What I miss: I miss having a lot of energy and moving around quicker. I’m usually the energizer bunny but lately I’ll go hard and then need to rest a little bit to recover from my power stint of maxing out work, cleaning, or play time with boys.
Cravings: any dessert, ice water, any type of salad (pasta, chicken, egg, lettuce)
Symptoms: exhaustion, dry dry dry skin, pimples, and the need to pee all the time
Best Moment This Week: We had the auction for Noah/Deacon’s school on Saturday night. The boys spent the night with the Baker’s and we were able to have a fun night on the town. The atmosphere, good, and company were all on point. They had bundt cakes and cake pops galore so this girl was HAPPY. Matt and I also loved just getting to socialize and see all the neat donated artwork. We are so thankful for the boys' school and will miss it with our big move.
