21 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 21 weeks-Look! There's a definite baby belly there now!
Size of Baby: At this point they give an average overall length of baby. He is about 10 1/2 inches long-the length of a banana
Weight Gain/Loss: As you can see, I officially look like a pregnant girl this week! It's amazing how much the little guy has grown in the past few weekly pictures! Taking this into account, I am pretty sure I have gained some weight!
Maternity Clothes: Still squeezing into my regular clothes for the most part, but only with the use of a Bella Band with my pants. Also same as last week, any time I am going to be in the car a lot, I pick out maternity clothes to wear-just much more comfortable.
Gender: BOY!!!
Movement: More and more! This guy is getting pretty active and I am starting to recognize his patterns. He usually gets most active between 9pm-midnight(we will be fixing this upon his arrival!) He also gets really active about an hour after I work out.
Sleep: Matt and I have been crazy and stayed up late talking for the past few nights, so I guess I'm just pre-training for the newborn nights to come.
What I Miss: Nothing right now-I am really enjoying this pregnancy!
Cravings: Cereal of any kind-I loaded up on the most odd assortments of nutritionally void crunchy goodness and I want it all the time! Fruity Pebbles, Honey Nut Cheerios, Honey Bunches of Oats, Kix, Trix, etc. I know, I know, not that nutrient dense, but what baby wants, he gets...for right now.
Best Moment of the Week: Matt has really been able to feel this little guy a lot now. Just like Harrison did, he gets to rolling and kicking when we hears his Daddy talk and Matt can make him kick away in there!

Big brother holding a banana, about the length of his little brother this week.

And because Harrison just cracks me up, here's the big brother very excited that he gets to eat the banana after the photo shoot is over!
