Twenty-One-Ish Weeks

Baby D's Stats!

Baby's size: Carrot

How far along:
21 weeks today, even though these pictures are from last week (I'm behhhiiindd)

Sleep: Still lots of hip pain. Although, Joshua surprised me with an overnight getaway on Tuesday night for my birthday (STUD!), and we slept in the most wonderful bed that felt like I was floating on clouds was too good to be true and I woke up for the first time in a very long time in a complete state of bliss.

Maternity Clothes: I'm rocking the leggings these days. Day after day. A girls gotta do what a girl's gotta do. Maternity jeans are a pain in the butt! They sag so bad. I had a big convo with fellow preggo Little Miss Momma at Creative Estates on this topic... we are going to design a new line of maternity jeans. Watch out.

Food cravings: Yesterday it was frozen yogurt, so we drove 15 minutes to go find some at 8 PM last night... And while we were sitting outside eating them, I saw Olive Garden across the street and immediately started craving their salty breadsticks... Me: "Babe, I'm craving Olive Garden breadsticks." Joshua: "Heather, we just came to get you fro-yo and now you are craving something different?!" Haha. I think I'm slowly killing that man.

Food aversions:
Fried food, anything acidic that will give me heartburn

Symptoms I HAVE: Still have sciatica (hip pain) and that's about it! 

Doctor’s Appointment: Next Tuesday... hopefully we get to see our little one's face again!

Movement: Now it is occurring daily-- best feeling ever! All the books and apps for iPhone say that by now, the baby can differentiate between different times of the day. I definitely notice her getting busy in my tummy around the late afternoon and right before bed. 

Belly Button:
Innie

Gender: It's a GIRL! Eeeep! We are soooo thrilled! I wanted a girl so bad!! I think Joshua is a little nervous... he's already talking about having to buy a bigger gun and how she's not allowed to EVER date ;) Click here to see our gender reveal video!

Best moment of the week:
Finding out the baby was a GIRL... I mean, seriously, it was wayyyy better than any Christmas. I am so glad we found out the gender! Now we have 19 more weeks of having fun shopping for her and talking about her AND another Christmas-like surprise on the day we meet her face-to-face. 

What I’m looking forward to:
Feeling stronger kicks :)

What I miss: Really missed red wine the last couple of days... We had Italian for dinner on our get-away and I watched couples indulge in it and it made my mouth water. Mmmmm!

You are seriously so adorable! I'm usually not one for wearing leggings as pants, but I have never seen them look cuter.

I'm not exactly worried about cravings anytime in the near (like 5-6 years near) future, but I'm positive I'll be missing red wine and coffee the most, oh wait and sushi. Nevermind, just tack another year or so onto that near future business. So glad to hear you and the baby are doing well.

I love leggings and I think maternity jeans are horrible... looks like i have potatoes in my pants. I am betting the rest on warm weather and jersey stretch skirts.

You look so great! I laughed out loud at the cravings. :) :)
I think next time I'm pregnant, I'm really going to have to get some good leggings...sounds super comfy!
