21 Week Survey

How far along? 21 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: +0 ...whoop whoop!! 17 lbs. total
Maternity clothes? yes and no
Sleep: Pretty good, I wake up now and then to readjust. Officially uncomfortable on my back and not really comfy on my right side anymore either...
Best moment this week: Watching my husband graduate on Saturday, and seeing our sweet baby BOY on the ultrasound today. He is so cute.
Movement: Yes, and even saw my stomach move from the outside Sunday night!
Food cravings: Salty and sour things....! I also ate a lot of multi-grain cheerios this week.
Gender: BOY! 100% sure now.
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? Innie still and getting more shallow.
Stretchmarks? Nothing noticeable yet. Thank goodness!
What I am looking forward to: Erin's shower Saturday and my friend Kerri's party on Sunday. And I am also meeting with another doula on Wed.....hope she is "the one!"
What I miss: Not being sore from sitting all day. BUT I convinced my boss to let me get a ball chair, so hopefully that will help!
Weekly Wisdom: Soak in every minute because it flies by.
Milestones: Having our "BIG" ultrasound today! Baby Boy looks perfect, and he is so cute. He looks just like a mini-Chris. I cannot stop looking at his cute little nose in the 3-D pictures. And seeing my belly move from the outside.

Enjoying the gorgeous weather today!

1 whole pound of baby in there according the ultrasound, and I was measuring right on.

Front shot of the belly. It seems so "round" to me!

How your baby's growing:

Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she's practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you're having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.
