21 Week Bumpdate

Monday, October 7, 2013

How Far Along:
21 Weeks
Size of Baby:
A pomegranate or carrot
Total Weight Gain:
Not going to lie, didn't weigh myself this week
Stretch Marks:
Maternity Clothes:
Oh yea
 I feel him most often in the evening and when I wake up in the morning, but I have started feeling him every now and then during the day.
Sleeping good!
What I miss:
Soft cheeses. Wine.
Food Cravings:
I don't think I'm going to experience this whole craving thing that I've heard so much about.
I just love chocolate and sugar, like usual.
Food Aversions:
I made it through the entire week with no headaches!
No symptoms this week. 
What I'm Looking Forward To:
I'm loving this cold weather.

I don't have anything too exciting to share for week 21.
I felt great, no pregnancy symptoms, just continuing on with life like usual.

Lately I feel like I've been very on top of things, which is always a fantastic feeling.
I don't know if I have extra energy or extra motivation, but I'll take it.
There was a period of time earlier in my pregnancy where I constantly felt like I was drowning and couldn't keep up. I'm so glad that's no longer the case.

It's been pretty chilly in these parts, and it couldn't have come at a more perfect time!
This past week I busted out all of the Halloween decor and worked on making the house festive for October.

On Friday I received two packages in the mail from my parents FULL of clothes for little Jacob Douglas.
His Nana sure does like to spoil him already!
She also still likes to spoil me, because there were some maternity goodies in there as well.

I never knew how much excitement and joy a baby could bring to a family before they even arrive.
I can't even imagine what it will be like once he is here.
I feel so blessed to be having such an enjoyable and easy pregnancy thus far, and I am so thankful for the technology that allows me to stay in constant contact with my family!


  1. Can't wait to bring him (and you!) some more goodies next week!! xoxo

  2. You look so cute! PS, not sure if you know this, but for soft cheeses, you can eat them if they are made from pasteurized milk (most of the ones at our commissary are) or if you heat them to 160 degrees/melt them. I didn't know that (and was already mourning the loss of cheese whenever I do get pregnant) until I read it in my nutrition textbook! Just thought I'd pass that tidbit along since sometimes the military doctors tend to leave out details like that!

  3. Enjoy this energy while it lasts! Honestly, because this time is the most "enjoyable" part in pregnancy. Soon you'll be wanting your body back :P

  4. Nice read! I like the suggestions.
