21 weeks

Woohoo! Over halfway there! Not by much, but it has gone by way fast!

PICS: This is me at 21 weeks exactly. I feel like while I was gone camping last week I "popped". My bump is way more apparent now and I look more and more pregnant everyday. Pretty exciting!
How far along: 21 weeks. Over halfway there!

How big is baby:
 The size of a pomegranate. She is manufacturing meconium (eeww) and she already has a lifetime supply of eggs in her womb!

Total weight gain: They did not weigh me during my Thursday appointment, so I have no clue. If my bathroom scale is right I have gained at least 2 more pounds, for a total of 9. Have to wait and see at my next appt.

Sleep: I have been sleeping pretty well actually. A few nighttime trips to the bathroom and some back pain, but not too bad so far.

Maternity Clothes: Still just bottoms. I am going to take a trip to EcoThrift this week and try to find some of those flowy cotton skirts with the elastic waists and maybe some more work appropriate clothes.

Best moment of the week: Finding out that Little Hill is a girl! We had our anatomy scan on Thursday and got to see her wiggling around in there! She is super active and the tech had a hard time getting some of the measurements she needed!

Food cravings : Nothing weird yet. 

Food aversions: None really. I like to eat everything! :D

Symptoms: I cannot run/walk 5 miles like I used to without being super sore for the rest of the day! Had SacFit yesterday and limped around like an old lady the rest of the day!

: More than last week, but still only every once in awhile. Considering how wiggly she was during the u/s I hope I can feel her regularly soon!

Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce Hill :D

What I’m looking forward to: Feeling more movements this week. Doc said week 21 can be the magical week...we shall see. I also really want Matt to feel her, but she isn't quite strong enough yet.

What I miss: Exercising without hurting the rest of the day!

Next appt: Follow up u/s on Monday to recheck a few measurements since she was so wiggly on Thursday!


  1. I am jealous that you only gained 9lbs. I literally gained a pound a week, so at 23 weeks, that's 23 lbs! Ugh! I need to watch what I eat.

    How much are you doing in terms of working out? Every day? How far?
    I don't think I am going a lot (1 mile a day for about 4 or 5 times a week). But like you, I can feel my legs getting tired before the mile is up.

  2. That's my of week 18 I had gained 7 and I think 2 more, but it could be more! I am definitely rounding out!

    Working out has been sporadic to say the least. The only workouts I have really been doing are the group workouts with my walking group on Saturdays, but they are pretty long (over an hour). I need to get better at going out maybe 3 or 4 times a week and I got a prenatal yoga dvd from the library to try out as well.

    I know the healthier I am now the better I will be when baby comes!

  3. How exciting!! Sounds like you're doing great!!! I can't imagine having a little one moving around inside of me! Can't wait to hear about it!!! :)
