Week 21

Week 21

The bump: Another little pop this week. I also feel like I can tell which position he's in because I can tell I'm sticking out at one point or my belly is a little lopsided.

How far along: 21 Weeks

How big is baby: From The Bump - The size of a pomegranate. At 10.5 inches and about 12.7 ounces, he's big enough now that you've probably been feeling his movements. As his digestive system preps for the outside world, he's manufacturing meconium -- the tarry black substance you'll find in his first dirty diaper (ew)!

Weight gain/loss: The cupcakes caught up to me this week. I'm up 3.2 pounds this week for a total of 8 pounds gained.

Stretch marks: None yet.

Belly button: Still a cavernous hole. My old piercing scar is starting to stretch out and I think I'm starting to get a linea negra.

Sleep: Ok-ish. I had been good about not drinking water too close to bed, but haven't been good about that lately. Had a rough night on Sunday/Monday. I was up at 4:30 and could not go back to sleep.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Still on a sweets kick.

Movement: Lots going on now. It's gone from little pops to more muscle twitches. I can feel them getting stronger, but John can't feel anything yet.

What I'm loving: Feeling stronger movements. Being past the halfway mark.

Symptoms: Still have some round ligament pain. I also get nosebleeds.

Best moment of the week: My impromptu "eating for two" final birthday dinner. I'm still full from it.

How I'm feeling: I've been feeling pretty good lately. I can tell my energy levels are up. Pretty much as long as I'm well rested and fed I'm ok.


  1. My sweet tooth intensified when I was pregnant and hasn't stopped. Lookin' good, momma!

    1. I was never a big sweets person before. It's gotten baaaaaad.

  2. When I was pregnant I wanted steak and pancakes, not together though.

  3. I wanted ice cream through both of my pregnancies. All day long. Every single day :)

    1. I've been known to eat ice cream while I'm making dinner..,,,

  4. Super cute dress and adorable preggy lady!

  5. Oh the nosebleeds! Those totally freaked me out when I first started getting them with Miles (I didn't have them the first time around). And isn't feeling the movement really cool! Makes it so much more real!
