How Far Along: 21 Weeks
Size of the Baby: Spaghetti Squash (About 10 inches and 1 pound)
Maternity Clothes: I'm still mixing maternity clothes with non-maternity. I am dying to wear my new maternity leggings with boots and sweaters but the weather is not cooperating.
Stretch marks: not yet - I'm still slathering on Palmer's and Burt's Bees Mama Bee cream twice a day.
Weight gain: 10 pounds total (give or take depending on the day).
Sleep: Aside from switching from side-to-side every hour - sleep is good!
Best Moment of the Week: My parents took me to pick out our nursery furniture! We ordered the crib and the changing table. I'm still on the hunt for a glider :-) Thank you Mom & Dad!
Movement: Every day :-) Feeling her little pushes is the highlight of my day!
Food Cravings: Lately, I want something sweet every evening after dinner.
Belly Button in or out: in but getting more shallow...
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope (still so happy about this!)
Labor Signs: No
Wedding ring on or off: On...but when I get really hot it gets really tight. Eeek, I'm hoping this isn't a sign I should stop wearing it.
What I miss: sleeping on my stomach :-)
What I am looking forward to: Our trip to St. Thomas in exactly four weeks!
Nursery: We're making progress! We finally decided on a coral, gray, and white color scheme. The furniture we picked is gray and has a shabby chic finish to it. Our bedding is white and coral. I'll post pictures at the end of this month when it's all been delivered :-)
Emotions: School is draining but overall I'm feeling really good.
