So, this post is not timely but the photo is. This dress looks kind of like I'm wearing a tent but in the heat I appreciate its breeziness. And don't ask about the puffiness of my hair. It was close to midnight and it was HOT! Today I actually chopped all that hair off so my next picture I will be looking nice and cool!
How Far Along: 21 Weeks
Size of baby: Banana
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Man, i was doing so well! Then fat happened. I had only gained four pounds the first 5 month but since Monday alone I put on another 3. Time to get the eating under control!
Maternity Clothes: I only have one pair of maternity shorts so I have been wearing lots of pre-pregnancy dresses to beat the heat.
Gender: We are undecided on if we are going to announce the sex. We have so little between us that this feels like one thing we can have to ourselves. Of course, I am confident Rob has shared with a handful of people. He was too excited not to, lol!
Movement: Thankfully, the baby moves quite frequently, especially if I am hungry. It is still too faint for Rob to feel but he diligently puts his hand to my belly with great frequency in hopes of feeling something; it is very endearing!
Sleep: It's already hard to get comfortable and I know it is only going to get worse. I am sooo thankful for the ability to nap, even though I never allow myself to.
What I miss: Having less body hair (thanks, hormones and vitamins!) and being able to shave with ease.
Cravings: Fruit salad. There was something else but now I can't remember it. I can never remember anything these days-it's totally true what they say about "pregnancy brain!"
Symptoms: A growing belly.
Best Moment this week: Seeing a healthy baby!! Such a blessing in and of itself!
