How Far Along: 21 weeks
Size of baby: A pomegranate, which I don't understand. I'm pretty sure bananas are bigger?
Total Weight Gain/Loss: despite Thanksgiving, I didn't gain anything this week. I think I should probably stop weighing myself because I tend to compare and it makes me feel bad about myself if I find out I've gained more than expected at this point, especially since I've been eating healthy and working out.
Maternity Clothes: rotating the same few bottoms. I've continues to wear tank/t-shirts with cardigans or sweaters to work. When I'm at home it is sweatpants or bust! Invested in some workout clothes that are just a size larger.
Gender: It's a girl!
Movement: Baby has been wild the past few days. We saw outside movement last week, and feeling outside kicks is awesome. It was priceless to see Tate's reaction when he received a swift kick in the ear when he was trying to listen for her.
Wedding Rings: On.
Symptoms: The heartburn continues. It's still not bad enough for Tums or other medication, it is just annoying. It is looking like a good week for my skin and my belly button is starting to morph. A little bit of hip pain as well. I have a massage scheduled to hopefully work out the soreness.
Sleep: sleeping well, but up a few times to use the bathroom.
What I miss: Still missing my regular clothes, being able to eat regular size portions.
Cravings/Aversions/ food in general: Red meat and chocolate sound so good this week. It is frustrating to not know what quantity of food will cause a major stomachache or heartburn.
Workouts: Bootcamp, free weights, and walking
Best Moment This Week: Feeling outside kicks!
Worst Moment(s): Getting heartburn immediately after taking a sip of the one glass of wine I was allowing myself for Thanksgiving.
Shopping: We started the registry process. It is very stressful to not know which products are the best or which ones baby will like. Amazon reviews and Baby Bargains have been useful, but I'm still nervous.
