Week 21

How far along?: 21 weeks 6 days

How big is baby?: According to the APP, I'm Expecting: Started the Week 21 as the size of a Carrot and am about to be a Papaya.

Weight gain?: 1.5 this week, 18.5 total.

Stretch marks?: None so far

Maternity clothes?: Exclusively, and I broke down and bought more hangers so my clothes didn't hang on the rocking chair.  I didn't want more hangers because I usually get rid of clothes I don't wear when I buy new clothes. 

Sleep?: I sleep well, but I have to use my big pillow, otherwise, my knees are uncomfortable.

Best moment?: I greatly enjoyed playing with Aidan at the bounce house for our friends' little girl's birthday.  He unleashed his wild energy and had a blast.  He definitely did not want to leave.

Celebrating Mother's day was also a very nice way to end my week.  AJ surprised my Saturday with cake and flowers, then on Sunday, Aidan and him gave me a card.  Then we went to my parent's house to continue celebrating.  

Worst moment?: Nothing that I can remember!  It has been a very good week.

Food cravings?: Still salty food - popcorn.

Symptoms?: I had a charlie horse in the middle of the night once this week - time to up my milk intake!
Exercise?: I continued to walk - 10+ miles this week. I did not visit the gym because of the placenta previa.  Hopefully it's correcting itself, and I will know more this coming Friday.

Movement?:Lots of kicking and moving around

Belly button?: Part out, part in

What I miss?: It's only been a week, but I miss my hard work outs.

Labor signs?
:Not yet

TMI: You know when you don't ride a bike for a while, and it you jump on and knock out 15 miles?  The next day, you can be sore, especially if you have the stock seat. Well, I didn't ride a bike, but I sure feel like I have.  Oy, I do not remember the pressure starting this early.

What I'm looking forward to?: AJ and I are attending a couple's baby shower for one of AJ's coworkers.  We have known this couple since AJ went to training for law enforcement, and they have had trouble having a baby.  We are so excited with them and cannot wait to celebrate with them.
