21 weeks!

How far along: 21 weeks! a little over 5 months 

Size of baby: A pomegranate...somehow baby went from 6.5 inches to 10.5 inches in a  week. hmmmm. 

Total weight gain/loss: About 15 pounds.  

Maternity clothes: Yep. Still wear non-maternity tops but all my pants are definitely maternity!

Gender: Sweet baby boy! We have decided on a name! Gotta make sure all the family knows before I post it on here though. 

Movement: Lots of movement!! And it is so fun! I feel him a lot in the mornings and then randomly throughout the day. It's such a relieving feeling to feel him kicking around. Can't wait for Austin to feel from the outside! 

Sleep: Sleeping pretty good. Really can't complain. 

What I miss: Nada 

Cravings: cinnamon rolls. made some of those bad boys tonight. and cucumbers and pickles. 

Best moment this past week: I just bought our nursery bedding! I went with the Graham collection from Serena and Lily

Symptoms: still some nasal congestion, back pain (holy cow, have had two awful days of intense back pain. oww.) and my "mild asthma" has really kicked in. having to use my albuterol inhaler more and more these days. 

What I'm looking forward to:  seeing the nursery come together. Now that I'm set on the bedding I feel like I can build the rest on that. The bumper and bottom of the skirt is a slate seersucker so I think I'll stay with the gray family, and touches of light blue and a golden yellow. 

Milestones: baby is very large now! and he has eyebrows and is forming poop! haha

Mood: happy and excited! I just find myself dreaming about meeting him all the time and I can't hardly stand it! Can't wait to nuzzle that sweet body!

Labor Signs: negative

Wedding rings on or off: on

21 weeks and growing! 

So since we're doing the hardwood floors and its taking way longer than we thought I had to come to terms with the fact that I wasn't' going to break out all the Christmas decorations and we probably weren't going to have a tree either. I have been really sad about definitely shed a few tears, more than once. Well, the other night I came home and Austin had this mini tree down from the attic. It was so sweet! haha. Our big empty den with this little guy sitting in the middle.  I'm just focusing on next year...we will have our tree and I'll go all out with the decorations. AND there will be three of us to enjoy it next year!! gahhhh.
