21 Weeks!

How Far Along: 21 weeks!  

Size of Baby: A pomegranate, a banana, or bok choy, depending on the app!  Approximately 10.5 inches and 12.7 ounces.

Maternity Clothes: Yes.  Just ordered some from Destination Maternity.
Stretch Marks: None yet.  Already using coconut oil twice a day.  Up about 8-9 pounds so far, and hoping to keep the gain slow and steady.
Sleep: Very uncomfortable but the Snoogle pillow helps a little bit.  Hopefully the arrival of our brand new bedroom set this weekend will also help!

Best Moment of the Week/Past Month:  Finding out baby's gender and having my 20 week ultrasound and getting to see the baby wiggle around for a while.
Movement:  Lots of kicks and somersaults, and can even see some of them outside my tummy.  Chad seeing the movement has been a huge highlight as well!
Cravings: None, really, but still love fruit, fruit and more fruit.
Gender: A precious baby BOY!
Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Not in quite a while, thankfully!
What I Miss: Wine and having the endurance to workout hard.  Also missing sushi and sleeping through the night without incident.
What I am Looking Forward to: My bump continuing to grow and getting closer to meeting our little man.

Nursery: We are working on it.  It is a sailboat theme - walls are a pale yellow, furniture is an antique white and we have an Annie Sloan Provence Chalk Painted crib.  Bedding is navy and white and we just ordered the cutest blanket and mobile from Pottery Barn.  I'm working on some DIY artwork, too.  Love personal touches!
Emotions: Pretty much exuberant, joyous, happy, excited, and a little mix of anxious and nervous - especially as we get closer to baby's birthday!
