21 weeks!

How far along: 21 weeks!

Total weight gain: 12 lbs
Maternity clothes: haven't bought any. But I have some I am using from a friend at church, and still making use of that belly band at work!
Best moment of the week: Continuing feeling her kicks and movements!
Food cravings: starbursts
Food aversions: nothing really.


boobs sore- still there, way less prevelant though

cramps- no

tiredness- better since I am not sick anymore!!

irritability- back to normal. :)

acne- better this week!

bloat- I am going to say its all baby now. :)

burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- all gone!

Movement: yep! And I swear I feel the baby get stronger by the day!

Gender: Girl!
What I’m looking forward to: stronger kicks! I love feeling this baby move!! I can't get enough of it!

What I miss: Not going to the doctor so much! I have learned I don't like doctors! I love my midwife, but I hate all the tests they run and precautionary things they do. Just let me be pregnant, make sure baby is ok, and let me deliver. :)
Next appt: September 25th. well I have the 3 hour glucose test next wednesday.. .boo. More on that later
How big is baby: Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she's practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you're having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well. (taken from
