21 Weeks - Bump Date

(sorry for once again another bathroom photo!  I had every intention on Andy taking a photo in the living room of me and the bump, but we ran out of time last night and I really wanted to change, wash my face and take my contacts out.  I am hoping for a living room photo for next week!)

How far along: 21 Weeks!

Baby Size: The size of a small cantaloupe or the length of a carrot, 12 oz. or three quarters of a pound, and is 10 1/2 inches long.

Weight gain:  3 pounds

Maternity clothes: all maternity pants

Stretch marks: None!
Sleep: Some nights good, other nights not so good.  Depends on the day.
Gender: It's a BOY!

Movement: Still nothing consistent, just trying to be patient.... I am told that my placenta is more than likely at the front of the uterus and that's why I am not feeling him move.

Best moment this week: Our doctor's appointment yesterday (Wednesday, April 30th)!  I was anxious to go to a new doctor since our last doctor's office was not so pleasant.  After the appointment Andy and I walked out with smiles on our face and were so impressed with the office staff, the nurse AND the doctor!  What a sense of relief this is!!
Looking forward to: Monday for our 21 weeks ultrasound!!!  We haven't seen baby boy since 7 weeks and 4 days and I cannot wait to see him again!  Also so excited to go register with my best friend Ali tomorrow (Friday) night!!!

Food cravings: slushies, fresh veggie sticks with ranch, mexican food and BBQ (nothing new)
  Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell that was outside our hotel on Sunday that was horrible and I got sick...not fun!
Labor Signs: None, let's keep it this way for another 17+ weeks!
What I miss: just not craving things that I cannot have....I am not a big sandwich fan and now that all I want is a Jimmy John's sub....ugh!  Also diet soda...
Symptoms: sometimes nerve pain, using the restroom more, bigger belly, HORMONES!

Nursery: The furniture has begun a sanding down and I cannot WAIT to see how it turns out painted white!  We also picked up a white side table to have next to the rocker/glider for nursing and a white bookshelf for baby boys room!

Belly Button in or out? In but I can tell that it starting to stretch

Wedding rings on or off? On!  Hoping they stay on the entire time

Mood: Hormones!  Enough said!

Ugh, I remember certain smells from my pregnancy that made me sick..unfortunately, I STILL (after 9 years) can still smell them and will get a nauseous feeling.

You look fabulous! Congratulations on your little boy! :)
