Bump Update: 21 Weeks



21 Week Bump Update!
*How far along?: 21 weeks 4 days when this photo was taken

*Total weight gain: I think I am at about 9-10 pounds. I go to the dr next week for an official weigh in. It's looking like I have gained about 5 lbs this month! UGH!!!!! (thank you, Thanksgiving dinner and leftovers)

*How big is baby?: The length of a carrot...about 10.5 inches. At my ultrasound last week this little cutie weighed a whopping 13 ounces!

*Sleep?:Sleeping good,but having a little issue with restless leg here and there...but only waking up once to use the restroom...I'll take it!!!

*Best moment this week?: Going in for my ultrasound last Monday!! Loved getting to see the baby in 4d!!!

*Movement?: Oh yes....this baby may only weigh 13 ounces, but it feels as though it's 5 lbs already! The kicks and movements are out of control!

*Food cravings?: Still no overwhelming cravings.....I bought some clementines this week, and those are tasting really good to me...thank God it's fruit, and not chocolate bars!

*Labor signs?: No, thank Goodness. 

*Belly button in or out?: Ugh, it's out. Look at the picture... ;(

*What I miss: Running...and just feeling normal. Always seem to be short of breath, and tire out easily. This 2nd trimester is supposed to be the FUN trimester....still waiting on that energy boost I had the last 2 pregnancies!

*What I’m looking forward to:  We have our Gender Reveal party this Saturday! Inviting close friends and family over to reveal the baby's sex! My husband and I actually already know...and we can't wait to tell our family. Our girls don't know yet either, so seeing their reaction should be priceless!!
Stay tuned for photos!

With our third, my weight gain had been unusually low until I got to 18 wks. and between 18 - 24 weeks I put on about 20 pounds. I ended up with a solid 50lb. weight gain just like I did with Hughes and Banks.
