Pregnancy | Week 21

Size of Baby: The size of a pomegranate. She weighs 12 oz. 

Gender: Sweet, sweet baby girl! 

Weight Gain: Up 12 pounds. Woah baby. 

Maternity Clothes: I find that maternity clothes are 100% more flattering than trying to squeeze into my regular tops and pants. 

Nursery: Crib has been ordered and is on it's way to the house. We are headed to IKEA this weekend to pick up a dresser and a few other home items. 

Movement: Joe was able to feel her kick for the first time this weekend. I love falling asleep with her little flutters and kicks. 

Symptoms: Exhaustion. We spent Saturday at the state fair with friends and by the end of the day I felt like I had ran a marathon. My hips have started hurting later in the day as well. I have had some bad calf cramps at night. 

Sleep: Waking up a lot at night to change positions. 

Cravings: Loving bananas lately which I hope helps with the muscle cramps. 

What I Miss: Pepperoni, Salami & prosciutto

Exercise: I really, really, really struggled with workouts this week. I only got in one Pure Barre class. My aim this week is to get in my normal 5 classes. 

Best Moments: Ordering the crib in preparation for baby girl.

  1. Eek almost time to decorate the nursery! That was my favorite part! Enjoy!! :)

  2. So exciting about Joe getting to feel her kick for the first time! I'm sorry about the soreness and the muscle cramps. That does not sounds fun at all!

  3. You look great! We still haven't ordered a crib with all that's been going on. Isn't it crazy how maternity clothes are actually FLATTERING? I told my husband that I never want to wear normal clothes again because it's like wearing PJs all the time :)

  4. Oh having a crib in the house is a wonderful feeling of "ahhh this is really happening!!" What a fun purchase/milestone!
