How far along: 21 weeks 3 days
Size of baby: 10.8 in 12.7 oz/ about the length of a banana
Total weight gain/loss: As of Sunday I'm at -8 lbs. How I'm doing that, I have no idea. Weekend before last I got really sick and lost another 2 lbs which put me at -10 but I've since gained it back. So really I've been holding steady at my current weight since my first trimester. I have talked to my dr about it and she says that it is perfectly fine since I was slightly overweight to begin with so I'm not worried about it. Im sure it won't last much longer though!
Maternity clothes: Here and there. I'm still able to get by wearing a belly band with my pre-pregnancy pants but I do have a pair of maternity pants that work too. Some of my longer pre-pregnancy tops still work too but Im also wearing a few maternity tops as well.
Gender: it's a boy!!! We had our gender ultrasound and the tech pretty much had no question in her mind that there was a little wiener there! Honestly it's taken me some time to get used to the idea but I'm getting more and more excited! I'll post pics in a few minutes since blogger has been giving me problems doing pics and text in one post.
Movement: finally!! This past Friday I finally felt little guy move for the first time! It was awesome! Movement really hasn't been consistent since then but I do feel him rolling around every once in a while and I love it!
Sleep: thankfully sleeping is still going great. I'm sleeping through the night with no issue. My only complaint is that I'm always hot but I can deal with that. :)
What I miss: I still miss sleeping on my back. Hubs is constantly waking me up and tell me to roll onto my side because I always end up there!
Cravings: not really anything. I've always been a thirsty person so it hasn't surprised me that I'm constantly wanting ice water. I don't even know I'd that counts as a craving though!
Pain: round ligament pain seems to be gone and the hip pain seems to be getting more sporadic. I've also been have random cramps in my side like after you run right after eating. Again though it's pretty sporadic and nothing I can't manage.
Best moment this week: My mom found a practically new stroller for $65 at a garage sale and for some reason seeing it made this all really real for the hubs!
Best comment of the week: several people have told me that I have "just popped" and other have said that I'm "all belly".
What I'm looking forward to: tomorrow we go and take a tour of a near by birthing center.
Milestones: Baby C is starting to add some fat and now is capable of rapid eye movement (REM).
