How Far Along? 21 weeks
Maternity Clothes? Still not wearing any but I have missed wearing jeans for the past few months and the ones my friend gave me are a bit too long. So, I took the plunge and bought a pair at Thyme Maternity with my mom this weekend. The problem is I'm one of the very few women who don't like those stupid bands that come up over the belly. I like my pants to just sit below the belly. Since I am obviously a weird one with this preference, there really isn't a lot of choice for pants. There was only one below belly style and so I got them. I'm a bit unsure about them still and might head to H & M and Old Navy this week and see what they've got (and hopefully cheaper)!
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep? No troubles!
Best Moment of the Week? Feeling more and more real kicks and flip flops from our little baby girl! Also, my mom felt the kicks with her hand on my tummy this weekend! Soooo exciting to have someone else acknowledge that they are REAL! Hubs was away this weekend so he is a little miffed that my mom got to cop the first feel! ha ha! His turn will come this week I hope!
Oh, and another cool thing is my belly button is inching out. It used to be a mega-innie but it is becoming more shallow and almost flat with my belly! I LOVE it! I really want a pregnancy-induced outie!!!
Movement? Yup. See above!
Food Cravings? Nah. I'm finding that I get really full really fast and so my eyes are bigger than my stomach these days. I actually have been disappointed that I have had to skip dessert or bread at a couple of meals out this week due to being STUFFED!
What I miss? Nothing. I love this stage of preg.
What I'm looking forward to? Hubby feeling the kicks! Belly getting BIGGER! Trip to South Beach Miami this weekend! We rented a condo on the beach (on Collins Ave I think...) for a week starting this coming Saturday!
Weekly Wisdom: ? Malox is AMAZING! My doc recommended it for the heartburn I've been having and it has worked wonders this week!!!
Milestones: Over half way done this pregnancy!
Emotions: Feeling good this week. I had a bout of lonliness on Friday when hubby left for the weekend and I had nothing to do all day and night....I suddenly got very anxious! But I called a friend and hung out for the whole day and was cheered up really quick! Then I headed to my parents for the rest of the weekend. It was great.
I have no pics for this week but I'm sure the bump is about the same as last week!
Kind of a boring post but I just want to keep a record of my weekly progress, to both share with you all and to keep as a memory for myself!
