The air show was great, though, and it's the only one I have ever been to that I enjoyed it from start to finish. If you get the chance to go, I'd definitely recommend it. Of course, the Blue Angels' performance is remarkable, and the main draw of the air show...besides the funnel cakes. :) Or maybe that's just me...
How far along?: 21 weeks 6 days
How big is baby?: According to What to Expect When You’re Expecting: Started the week as the size of a Banana and about to be a Papaya.
Weight gain?: Biggest gain ever in a week...2lbs this week, though the baby's weight gain is definitely quickening...at least according to What to Expect When You're Expecting. Total weight gain is 16 lbs.
Stretch marks?: I thought I had one, but then I noticed it was just that my stomach hair is darkening in a line straight down through my belly button.
Maternity clothes?: Definitely adding in more of the maternity tops - it just seems like my stomach popped out more this week.
Sleep?: I just hope that my sleep continues to be this great for as long as possible. Still sleeping on my stomach.
Best moment this week?: The air show was awesome! Picking up the nursery furniture on Monday was unexpected...I didn't think AJ would be ready to go pick it up so quickly. Luckily, we have wonderful neighbors who were up at 10PM to help AJ unload the furniture. Now to pick out a paint color for the nursery and to assemble the furniture.
Worst moment this week?: Having a rock fly up and put a nice crack in my windshield! I need to file a report with the insurance company so I can get it replaced, but I keep forgetting. The crack keeps growing, too. :(
Food cravings?: I wanted a chocolate cake...so I bought one from Kroger's and the cake was dried out and there was not enough icing. I swear the icing was 1/16" thick (or less). Come on! I love the sugary icing and a moist cake. The cake was thrown out and my craving for it disappeared.
Symptoms?: Not sure if it's allergies or a symptom of pregnancy, but I have extra snot and boogers. Disgusting I know. I had it in the first trimester, and from what I read, it's a symptom. I've talked to some other ladies that are around my due date, and they say the same thing.
Exercise?: Walked 8 miles, played tennis, and worked out two days this week. Loving this spring weather.
Movement?: Baby A must wake up around 7AM because I usually feel his kicks every day around this time. There are a few occasions where I can put my hand on my stomach and feel it, but it's only if I hold my hand there when I first start noticing the kicking. Sometimes I press on my stomach to encourage Baby A to kick back, but he's stubborn and does what he wants. :) That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. Looking forward to being able to feel his kicks more and hoping AJ will be able to feel the movement shortly.
Belly button?: Working on being an outie...wondering when it will pop out or fully be flush.
What I miss?: Nothing really
Labor signs?: Nope! Too early.
Purchases: My mom bought some outfits from a local shop in Beaufort, and I'm waiting to see what they look like! Other than that, I'm waiting to paint the nursery before I start buying stuff to decorate. I have started working on the registry, which is quite overwhelming...
What I'm looking forward to?: In two weeks, I have another ultrasound, so I am excited for that. Mother's day is in a week, so I'm hoping we can get in a bike ride or something outdoorsy.
