Twenty One Weeks

I forgot to take a photo before dinner, but I did remember to take one afterwards! Lots of belly!

{ATL cardigan, ATL ruffle top & target jeans}

How far along? 21w

Maternity clothes? Yes! All maternity all the time.

Weight Gain? I haven’t weighed myself & they haven’t weighed me the last couple of doctor’s visits, so I’m not sure. I’ll be weighed at the OB appointment on the 27th.

Stretch Marks? none yet.

Sleep? Pretty good this week.

Movement? When I slow down, I can feel them & I love it. I’ve also noticed that when baby C pops her head around, my belly gets lop-sided at the top right {enough that my friends noticed today}.

Genders? A is a boy & C is a girl.

What I Miss? Baby B always. Having a ton of energy. Not having to keep a tight eating schedule.

Food cravings? Been loving the Gigi’s cupcakes leftover from last weekend’s shower. Also love fruit.

Food aversion? Still don’t love the Mexican restaurant idea but it’s not as gross sounding as before.

Labor signs? No, thankfully.

Belly button in or out? Still an innie but starting to look kinda like a crater.

What I’m Looking Forward to? Enjoyed spending time with {mostly former} coworkers today at a smaller shower today for the babies {will blog about it later this week}. Looking forward to a chill rest of this weekend, our vehicles hopefully being sold soon, getting the to-be-nursery cleaned out to make room for us to decorate & organize the nursery!

Weekly Wisdom? If you’re tired, listen to you body & rest. I was exhausted Wednesday at work. I put my head down at my desk for 15 minutes around 230, came home & slept from 530-730 then went back to bed at 1030. Clearly I needed sleep!

Milestones? According to Baby Center, the babies are around 10.5 inches long {the length of a big carrot} & have grown eye lids & eye brows this week.

    I always feel frustrated when I can’t do what I’m used to doing and have to sit down or go to bed early, but it’s so true! I have to remind myself that my body is working overtime and that’s why I need more rest. It gets annoying, though. I can only imagine how much harder it is with more than one baby in there.

      Yes, I remind myself that too. & yeah don’t try to think too hard about what it’s going to be like in a couple months. One day at a time is sometimes easier.

    You look fabulous! I’m glad that baby A & C are busy growing and my heart still hurts for your loss of baby B. <3

  4. You look great! Glad you are feeling well and I’m so sorry to hear about Baby B. I hope your pregnancy is smooth the rest of the way through!

  5. You look amazing! I remember that feeling of those first movements … so amazing. Enjoy every bit! Can’t wait to see you tomorrow. I might not be able to resist rubbing your belly. 🙂
