21 weeks

This is taken at 21 weeks 1 day.  I always feel like these pictures look really weird, but I think I'm just overly critical of myself. It definitely takes a lot of getting used to taking pictures of yourself consistently.

How Far Along: 21w1d

Weight Gain: I'm up 2 pounds! Baby is 12 oz, and my doctor says the rest of the weight is just fluid and blood volume. My goal is to not gain more than 25lbs, but as long as baby is healthy I'll deal with however many pounds I have to gain.

Baby's Sex: BOY! We found out earlier this week at our anatomy scan!

Symptoms: I'm having a little more round-ligament paint, but other than that I've actually evened out in the symptoms I had before. My blood pressure is nice and low, my nausea is rare-just some mornings before I've digested my first meal, and I do have some more energy. Acne is still here, but I don't care about it as much as I did before.

Sleep: I sleep a ton! I still pee a couple of times a night, but I normally can get right back to sleep. I use my body pillow to help my hips about half of the time.

Movement: C is moving all the time! I mostly feel him after I eat. At our scan he was moving like crazy! He was kicking, flipping, moving, and waving the whole time! We could also see him sucking, which was so cute. His kicks are getting stronger, and I've felt him from the outside once! I can't wait until Scotty can feel him.

I've been bonding more and more with C. I talk to him every day and am always rubbing my belly. In just 4 short months he'll be here to love and cuddle! I'm amped to get his nursery finished, and I've been collecting only the cutest clothes I see (on sale).
