How far along are you? 21 weeks and 2 days
Cravings: I haven't really had any specific cravings. I'm slightly more interested in carbs than normal, and sadly my sweet tooth has returned. It was completely gone in my first trimester and I was hoping by some miracle that I would be permanently cured. But alas, it turns out I do still enjoy sugar.
Weight Gain: roughly 9-10 lbs
"Today I spent the majority of the day thinking about having to pee, trying to find bathrooms, and going pee." -me
"A great drinking game would be to take a shot every time "c-section" is mentioned on this maternity tour." -Jeff
"I think it's a boy"- Everyone
Favorite moment this week: Far and away the best moment was Jeff getting to feel the baby kick for the first time. Not once, but twice! It felt like such a special gift and I immediately burst into tears.
General mood: Great! I have energy, I feel good, and people are finally starting to acknowledge that I have a baby bump...so I'm pretty excited about that.
Sleep: Easy peasy. I love sleep and I have a heavenly sleep mask that makes the experience that much better. I've been listening to my Hypnobabies CD's in bed and I easily drift into hypnotic amnesia (that's what they call it...but it sure feels a lot like sleep.)
Things I was surprised by: My balance is the teeniest bit off at times. I totally bit the dust while doing a warm up jog at Crossfit. It was surprising, embarrassing, and scary. Fortunately, my mommy instinct was to avoid any belly contact and just slide across the concrete on my shoulder, hip, and knee instead. It's all good though...nothing a little Neosporin can't treat.
Things I am most looking forward to: Our ultrasound tomorrow morning! I cannot wait to see this little nugget again and find out the gender!
What I think is really cool and crazy: Feeling so much baby movement, and now expecting some kicks around 8:30 every night.
Food Aversions: Oh man, I had soooo many of these in my first trimester. Thankfully, I haven't had any food aversions lately.
Maternity Clothes: The top I'm wearing in the first photo is a maternity top I picked up from Ross for $6.99. It has buttons down the back. Love it! I don't really need maternity clothes at this point, but I do need my BellyBand or a hair tie to fasten my pre-preggo jeans.
Gender: Finding out tomorrow!
