Bumpdate-- 21 Weeks

21 weeks-- where has the time gone?! So much has been happening. I feel BG kick/move all throughout the day (only when sitting/laying down, not when I'm up and moving yet) and it's really amazing. Truly a miracle! My husband can feel her too and is obsessed with telling her how much I eat.

He (for the second time) told me my hips are getting wider. He also asked if they "go back to how they were after the baby comes". He's a jerk but I like him a little bit.

How far along? 21W5D

Maternity clothes? Same! Here's a pic of the clothes I got when my MIL was here. Guess it's hard to see but the shorts are a grey cargo-ish material (very comfy) and just a black T-shirt from Target. Super comfy!

I never wear shorts that go above my knees (super insecure of my thighs..super) but these are OK!

Stretch Marks? We had a minor scare on Sunday.. Ha ha! I was doing my usual inspection (sitting on our bathroom counter with my big 'ole belly shoved in the mirror) and noticed something under my boob (sorry if "boob" makes you uncomfortable).

After 10 minutes of Googling and a loud scream causing my husband to run into the bathroom like he was trained to do for shots fired, it was just a weird varicose vein. Phew!

Sleep: Sleeping great. Fell asleep the other night at 6PM and woke up around midnight ready to party. Finally crashed around 1AM and slept until after 8. I've said it before.. good thing I work from home. :)

Still can't stay cool enough while I sleep. Ice packs are awesome! Noticing it's not to easy to move from side to side anymore. I'm very slow going from a laying position to a sitting position. It's kind of funny.

Best moment this week: Finishing BG's bookcase! It looks way better than I ever could have imagined. I'm almost glad the stencil didn't work out because it looks so much better like this!

These were all items I had around the house-- wreath from Target (Easter, probably discontinued by now), frames and prints from Ikealittle book from Ikea, headband from Target, and cloth wipes from a random giveaway I won.  

Hmm. Registering at BRU was fun. Seeing my husband push around a stroller and charge it into a carousel of clothes was way fun.

Miss anything? Do we have to go through this every week? I miss Diet Coke. Bathing suit season. I got the VS catalog and about choked on my Lucky Charms.

Craving anything? Cannot get enough Greek yogurt, Lucky Charms (with lots of milk), and string cheese.

Movement: My little mover/dancer/shaker! She is active all throughout the day. Definitely a night owl like her daddy. Feeling kicks/movement to one side so maybe she has changed positions. We'll see when we go to our next appointment!

Anything making you queasy or sick? Garlic, the oven being on, peanut butter, and popcorn.

Have you started to show yet? Sure?

Gender: My BG!

Labor signs: Nope

Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, blessed, and excited! And crazy. Always a little crazy.

Looking forward to: Our big move, vacation, my dad coming, in laws coming, 4th of July BBQing, and getting more Lucky Charms (and milk..we're out of milk)!

I ordered Hypnobabies a few weeks back and it finally came in. We're so excited! After lots of thorough research, my husband and I think this is the best way to go for our birth experience.

I'll be sure to post more about this when I have time. We are super excited about it though!

And the most exciting thing of the my first order of fluffy mail! There is seriously nothing better. These are Thirsties Duo AIOs and I'm totally in love. 

After doing the math and then forcing my husband to do the math, cloth is definitely cheaper (and cuter, by the way). He preferred the AIOs that can be completely thrown in the laundry after 1 use. 

We still registered for a box of NB disposable diapers and a box of Size 1 disposable diapers for those days we're too tired to do laundry in the beginning, but we'll be using cloth most of the time. 

I'm sure I'll find a way to sneak these Charlie Banana CDs into our stash without him finding out!

Okay people! That is it for this week! xO
