21 Weeks...a little over half way!
How far along: 21 weeks
Total Weight Gain/Weight Loss: I'm not sure...I think I am still in the 12-13 pound range?
Maternity Clothes: I have worn them, but not because I have too. I can still fit into all my normal clothes, I just think the other clothes are cute and they are "new to me."
Stretch Marks: None so far, hoping with water and lotion I can avoid it like I did with Levi.I talked about here how I made my own tummy butter.
Sleep: Sleep is all right, I was struggling with insomnia and it was making work difficult, but it isn't so bad now. Only when I try to nap even when I am very tired do I have insomnia. And, insomnia has been better lately which is a huge blessing.
Movement: Definitely feeling baby moves now. It seems like whenever I lean against something, the baby kicks it? Coincidence? Not sure....
Cravings: I'm not sure, I crave stuff, but like I said with the last pregnancy, it is no excuse to just cave. You have cravings whether or not you are pregnant. I do sometimes cave, but because we don't keep a lot of the stuff I crave in the house (and we don't do white flours or sugars, etc), I just have to suck it up and deal. lol
Gender: We know!! But aren't telling....yet! lol
Labor Signs: None obviously and thank goodness! Not even braxton hicks. I can't remember how early those started with Levi, but it was fairly early.....I think....lol
Belly Button-In or out: In still, it didn't "pop" until I was really late into my pregnancy with Levi.
What I miss: Probably still my body, but I am trying to work hard now so that after the baby is born, I will bounce back quicker.
What I am looking forward to: Reaching the next milestone which is 3rd trimester (5 more weeks!)
