21 Week Survey- Baby O #2

How far along? 21 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 0 lbs. this week. Probably all the running around I've been doing for Graydon's party, lol.  152 lbs-- 11 lbs. total.  At this point with Graydon I had already gained 17 lbs.
How big is baby?  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. - Baby Center
Maternity clothes?  Yes, but  mostly regular shirts still.
Sleep: Not too bad. Using a wedge and pillow between my knees to stay comfortable and it works well.
Best moment this week:  Hearing that we are having a GIRL! Also hearing that everything looked good on the ultrasound. Telling all of our family and friends and hearing everyone's reactions was awesome.  Having Graydon's birthday party on Saturday was great too!
Movement: Yes, I love it. Some days I feel more than others.
Food cravings: Chocolate, orange juice, sunny side up eggs, pumpkin spice donuts.
Food aversions:  Some meats and vegetables.
Gender: Precious baby girl!
Labor Signs: Nada
Symptoms:  Being tired on and off and sore breasts.
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on and for a long time hopefully. :)
Stretchmarks? I have some very faint marks from being pregnant with Graydon but they are not very noticeable.
How are you feeling? Pretty good! Tired sometimes.
What I am looking forward to:Getting more stuff done around our house this weekend.  Hopefully finding a bedding set that I like for the nursery. 
What I miss:  Having normal energy and working out.
Weekly Wisdom:
Enjoy your time with family and friends, it always goes by too fast. 
Milestones:  Finding out the gender!
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others:  When I found out that we were having a girl I was so happy and overwhelmed I just started bawling! Chris and Lyn were so sweet and very happy. It was such a perfect response. All of our friends and families that we have told have had really great responses too. It has been so much fun this weekend!
