21 weeks

How far along: 21w
Total weight gain/loss: +7 pounds. I lost 3 lbs from food poisoning this weekend :(
How big is Baby: Baby is about the size of a banana, or 10.5 inches long.

Maternity Clothes: Definitely. I do wear some regular shirts with a long tank top underneath, but all bottoms are maternity.
Sleep: Sleep hurts :/ My hips ache every morning from sleeping on my sides.
Movement: Yes!! He wakes me up around 4am every morning, having a dance party :) I also feel him after I eat and when I am sitting still. I am still in awe every time I feel him move.
Food cravings: I had food poisoning on Thursday night and that ruined my appetite. I didn't eat much of anything for three days. I have been eating fruit, yogurt and cereal, and drinking fizzy stuff, lemonade and lots of water. Oh, and my all-time favorite pork barbacoa salad at Cafe Rio came to my rescue yesterday afternoon. It was absolutely delicious and my first real meal since Thursday!
Food aversions: Cheeseburgers, since that gave me the food poisoning. Bleh.
Gender: It's a BOY!
Symptoms: Round Ligament Pain - specifically a pain low on the left side. Vivid dreams. Feeling dizzy & off balance. Peeing all.the.time. All around excitement and joy.
Best moment this week: Putting the stroller my Mom got us together :) And we pick up our crib today! I have a separate post on the nursery.
What I am looking forward to: Making more progress on the house/nursery. We are almost done with the other house projects and then it's 100% nursery!


  1. YUCKY! I'm so sorry about the food poisoning! That's awful!!! How cute he's having a dance party in your belly every night though! haha! I hear you about your hips aching! Mine do too!!!! I had to start using a normal body pillow because I think that caused part of it not rolling around at all at night- it did help some- but then I lay on my back- haha! Choices choices!

  2. I can't believe you're already 21 weeks! That flew by, and you look totally darling. :) I am so happy for you my dear. :)

  3. Wow I can't believe you're 21 weeks already! You look wonderful, I'm so happy for you!

  4. Such a cute bump! Yay for 21 weeks!
