21 Weeks



How far along? 21 weeks.
Baby size in fruit/vegetable: Carrot.
Total weight gain/loss: 9 pounds gained.
Maternity clothes? Nothing new, ready for new shirts and bras though!
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep: Sleeping has been better, I'm just feeling tired all the time again.
Best moment this week: Hyde kissing baby sister! It's like he's a chicken pecking my stomach, he does a bunch in a row. He's the cutest and it just makes me more excited to see him be a big brother to baby girl.
Miss Anything? I miss feeling like eating.
Movement: She's still moving a ton! She shifted though, so I don't feel her push out as much.
Food Cravings: Pebble ice, sandwiches, and cinnamon rolls. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Diapers, letting my stomach get empty, and nighttime.
Bump: I swear it shrunk this week, it feels so much smaller! I feel like she must have shifted back or something.
Discomforts: Acid reflux has really kicked in this week. And the usual, hips/tailbone and restless feet/legs.
Labor signs: I have been having lots of Braxton Hicks lately. The other night, I had them for 8 hours straight. It kind of freaked me out, but they definitely aren't the real thing and the doctor wasn't worried.
Belly button in or out? It's almost getting to be flat with my stomach.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Both.
Looking forward to: Ultrasound on Friday!

20 Weeks


How far along? 20 weeks--Halfway!
Baby size in fruit/vegetable: Banana.
Total weight gain/loss: 8 pounds gained.
Maternity clothes? Still just wearing maternity leggings and jeans with a few maternity shirts mixed in.
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep: Sleeping alright. I'm having lots of crazy dreams but still having a hard time getting comfortable and staying comfortable. 
Best moment this week: Ultrasound! It was so good to see baby girl and to see that things are going well! She's measuring right on track and I don't have any new bleeding, yay! The doctor said he doesn't think I need to worry about future bleeding (fingers crossed) but I'll still have frequent ultrasounds to check and to make sure baby girl is growing. They did a little bit of 3D and it was so neat to see her little face! 
Miss Anything? I miss not having hip/tailbone pain.
Movement: She moves so much and I love it! Those little bubble pops are turning into full on baby punches/kicks. And I love when she pushes out and you can feel/see her whole back.
Food Cravings: Pebble ice always, pomegranate seeds, and clementines. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Hyde's diapers are really all that's getting me lately. (He was on antibiotics, so even the pee diapers were bad!) As long as I don't get an empty stomach, I'm pretty good throughout the day! And nights I'm still getting a little pregnant sick. 
Bump: Popping out a little more but I feel so much smaller than I did with Hyde. And I'm still so much smaller in the morning than at night.
Discomforts: Restless feet/legs (every night after 9:00pm), hips, tailbone, lower back pain, and a little acid reflux.
Gender: Girl.
Labor signs: No.
Belly button in or out? Half out all the time.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy.
Looking forward to: Feeling her move even more, I can't wait for Hyde to be able to feel her. He already gives her kisses and it's the sweetest thing!

How far along? 19 weeks.
Baby size in fruit/vegetable: Mango.
Total weight gain/loss: 7 pounds gained.
Maternity clothes? Nothing new.
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep: Still not sleeping great, I wake up and my tailbone and hips hurt so bad in the middle of the night! 
Best moment this week: The other night Sean and I were able to feel baby girl's leg! It was crazy, we could feel her whole bone. It was kind of freaky, but still so cool.
Miss Anything? I miss not feeling so tired/winded after doing simple things. 
Movement: She's moving a ton! She pushes out so much and you can see her moving all over the left side of my stomach.
Food Cravings: Pebble ice all day! Pomegranate seeds, sandwiches, Dr. Pepper, and clementines. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: This week I've actually felt so much better! I haven't taken Zofran for the last 4 days and I've been feeling pretty good. I still get a little sick at night and I've had a few moments of sickness in the day, but it's nothing like it used to be! Finally!
Bump: Starting to stick out more! It's still pretty little, and already very lopsided. She's on the left like Hyde was.
Discomforts: Hips, tailbone, lower back pain, restless feet/legs, headaches, and a little acid reflux.
Gender: Girl.
Labor signs: No.
Belly button in or out? Half out.

Best moment this week: Making the first purchases for baby girl! It was so fun to finally buy something, and now I want to buy EVERYTHING for her. 
Miss Anything? I miss just feeling like myself. Pregnancy hormones and sickness really throw you off!
Movement: She's getting stronger! I feel her more and more throughout the day.

17 Weeks



How far along? 17 weeks.
Baby size in fruit/vegetable: Pomegranate.
Total weight gain/loss: 4 pounds gained.
Maternity clothes? Nothing new.
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep: The pregnancy insomnia (possibly just stress induced) is starting. I have a hard time going to sleep and staying asleep. 
Best moment this week: Seeing baby girl in the ultrasound and finding out that she is still growing right on track. It's such a relief to know she isn't affected by anything and that she is still healthy. The clots of blood in my uterus are shrinking, so that's great too. I'm still on modified bed rest and will be going in every week and a half for ultrasounds. Hoping there won't be anymore issues!
Miss Anything? I mostly just miss Dr. Pepper. 
Movement: I've been feeling her a lot more and I love it! Sean's been able to feel her more too. Every time I feel her move it's such a relief and I don't have such extreme anxiety for those few minutes.
Food Cravings: Pebble ice, pomegranate seeds, and green tea! I've been able to eat more this week, I just still don't ever feel like or really crave anything.
Anything making you queasy or sick: This week was bad! I was so so sick, especially at night. My doctor prescribed me Zofran and it's saving me. It doesn't take the sickness completely away, but it makes it so much easier to get through the day 
Bump: It's growing!
Discomforts: Hips, hips, hips! And, of course, acid reflux, restless feet/legs, and headaches still.
Gender: Girl.
Labor signs: No.
Belly button in or out? Half out.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time. But I'm definitely feeling those hormones more, I'm starting to feel way more emotional.
Looking forward to: My next ultrasound. It's next week and it feels forever away! 





Hyde wasn't impressed with the pomegranate this week, he's definitely more into the fruits/vegetables he can eat. He took a bite out of it, spit it out, rolled it off the chair (causing juice to go everywhere), and said "uh oh".
