I've been meaning to do a pregnancy update for a while, so here we are!


How far along are you?

21 weeks!
Symptoms?

Thankfully, no more morning sickness, although it stuck around until 17 weeks or so. Feeling VERY tired, but otherwise good. 

Total Weight Gain/Loss

Er, not sure how I feel about this question:) I kid. I think I'm about 10 pounds up so far. 

Maternity clothes?

Um, yes. I know a lot of people have negative views on maternity clothes, but I am ALL ABOUT embracing the elastic waist for 9 months! I love my maternity wardrobe and am glad to be back in it. Most of my clothes are from Motherhood Maternity because I like many of their styles and the price point is fantastic. I'm currently debating picking up this top:


Stretch Marks?

Not yet!

Sleep?

This one has been a bit tricky. I have the same restless leg thing I had when I was pregnant with Ellie, and that can keep me up some nights. But after reading a lot of suggestions online, I've started eating a banana every night before bed and it's helped so much!

Movement?

Yes, especially when I wake up in the morning!  Baby has been more quiet the past day or two and I'm freaking out a little bit, so hoping it picks up today!

Food Cravings or Aversions?

Not too many cravings, but I'm still rarely in the mood for chicken. And I still looooooove my red meat:) 

Gender?

We know, but we're keeping it a secret! We found out via a tiny gender reveal cake for just us:)  Can't wait to share the photos of it once little Peanut has arrived!

Baby Buys?

Nothing yet, but I've been heavily researching double strollers and baby carriers. If anyone has advice on those topics, I'll gladly take it!

And because I think this post needs another picture, here's a recent shot of my firstborn baby!


Doesn't she look BIG?

What's on YOUR mind this week?
