21 Week Bumpdate

  • How far along are you? 21 Weeks and 1 Day 
  • How I'm feeling: Still great.  I am so happy that I have had a great pregnancy.  I wish everyone was so lucky.
  • Total weight gain:  I have gained 5.5 pounds.  I am so proud of myself.  I know that gaining weight is part of growing a baby was I was deathly afraid of gaining "too much" weight.  
  • How big is baby? Baby Hughes is the size of a pomegranate!  He or she is 10-12 inches this week!  Most likely Baby Hughes weighs about 12 ounces.
  • This week baby: Baby is still growing big and strong this week.  Baby has started sucking his or her thumb and opening and closing his or her eyeballs. :)
  • Maternity clothes: Everyday. lol
  • Sleep: Sleep is still my best friend!  I am once again lucky, I believe, that I can still sleep on my tummy.  Baby and I get at least 9 hours of sleep a night with usually one potty break.  It is fantastic.
  • Best moment this week: We found out what Baby Hughes is!!!!  OHMYGOSH!  Que the freaking choir because I am ready to scream it from the rooftops!  I only have to hold it in for 32 more hours and I absolutely cannot wait!
  • Movement: Yes.  Ryan and I both felt the baby move for the very first time together on Monday afternoon while we were sitting on our couch.  The doctors and nurses say that I can't feel Baby H very much yet because of where my placenta landed.  They say soon I will feel Baby H a lot more when they have less room to move due to growing.  It was amazing!
  • Food cravings: Still Mexican food.  And pasta now too.  I love carbs!
  • Food aversions: Nope.  Just the smells still.
  • Belly button in or out:  Belly button is still in.
  • What I am thankful for: I am so thankful to have the best husband in the whole wide world.  He is absolutely the greatest.  He is all the time, but now that I am pregnant, he is even more so.  I love him so!
  • What I'm looking forward to: The Gender Reveal Party tomorrow!  I cannot wait!  I will do a post on it next week hopefully.  And if you are dying to know what Baby H is, make sure you tune in to IG tomorrow to find out first! :)

    2. Oh my gosh I don't know if I could keep that secret. :)

    3. I can't wait to find out what it is! Love your bump!! I'm guessing girl just because you carry high!

    4. Ha! Oops. I won't even tell you what I gained by 21 weeks. And I was even proud of myself as I'm behind a couple pounds over the last pregnancy! Can't wait to find out!!
