21 Weeks: Walking on Sunshine!


Baby Smith is growing, growing, growing...and so is his mommy! Starting to look like more of a bump in my clothing and less like a few extra burritos :)

How far along?
21 weeks

How big is baby?
An endive (??) or a ball cap 10.5" (from head to toe) and 12.7 oz

What's baby up to this week?
He's continuing to produce meconium, the black tarry substance that makes up his first poop. His skin is still a bit see through, and it has developed wrinkles that allow for internal expansion once baby fat starts to fill in #BringOnAChubbyBaby

Symptoms?
Nothing except my expanding waist line!

Maternity Clothes?
Still just jeans and leggings.

Sleep?
Sleep has been fabulous...I still wake up once a night to go to the bathroom, but I am able to get comfortable and haven't had any insomnia!

Missing Anything?
Getting dressed easily in the morning...my choices have been narrowed significantly, and even stuff that still technically fits, fits very strange.

Craving?
My appetite has increased significantly this week...I find myself snacking more during the day than before. 

Aversions?
Not a thing!

Emotions?
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! I find myself just randomly smiling throughout the day thinking about our little boy!

Movement?
Still lots of pokes and kicks during the day...nothing consistent enough for AJ to feel yet. I feel him kick and then tell AJ to feel...and then the little stinker doesn't kick again...at least not until his daddy has given up ;)

Best Moment of the week?
Thanksgiving celebrations with family...and a 5-day weekend! Sleeping in was something I took plenty of advantage of! The countdown to winter break has officially begun! 

Pregnancy Brain Moments?
I would say the biggest thing I notice is not being able to come up with words...I will be in mid-conversation and find myself completely blanking out. People think I am nuts ;)

Looking forward to?
Picking out a crib and a rocker for the nursery! Our plan is to paint this weekend and then it's time to get the ball rolling! #ICannotWait

Projects/Baby Gear purchased?
We didn't buy anything this week...although I have had to keep myself from buying everysinglething for our sweet little boy! This little boy is going to be so spoiled!

Running?
Running has been great...finding clothes to run in? #NotSoMuch I think I have gotten to the point where my pants no longer want to fit. I tried rolling them down, but then I get a case of plumbers crack as I run...and it isn't comfortable. It's time to start shopping for maternity workout pants!

  1. I wore my old navy high waisted yoga/workout pants I love their workout line. The high waisted ones work great for when I was OREGON and now I just roll them down. Love them!!

    1. I ordered some maternity workout pants from Old Navy and I think I'll be able to roll those down and wear them post baby too! Their active line is my favorite!
