Baby Barrett 21 Weeks

How Far Along: 21 Weeks

Size of the baby: Baby Barrett is now the size of a spaghetti squash, approx..8 inches long &approx 1lb.

Total Weight Gain/loss: I have gained 6lbs (as of my last doctors appointment, I don't really want to get on the scale at home) and as you can see from the picture there is definitely a little bump there now =)  It is growing everyday.  I swear when I wake up the morning it has grown overnight.

Maternity Clothes:  I can still wear some of my longer shirts, but all of my pants are now maternity or stretchy yoga pants.  I am still totally in LOVE with leggings and sweaters.  I started back to work on Monday so I will be stretching my wardrobe to make sure I can still look professional.  I have two pairs of maternity work skirts and my maternity pencil skirt so I will be rotating them out and seeing how many outfits I can make!

Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby Barrett arrives in May! 

Movement: Definitely have been feeling movement.  Baby B is moving all day long now.  It is such an amazing feeling to feel baby flipping and kicking all day long.

Sleep: Sleeping okay.  I am really not normally a side sleeper.  I have always slept on my stomach so I am still trying hard to get used to my new sleeping position.

What I miss: Not having smells literally have me running for the bathroom.

Cravings: Ummm... nothing too much this week.   Although I went to dinner with one of my best friends this week and I picked the restaurant that had Italian Sodas because it sounded really good =)

Symptoms: The new one that struck the other night was the most awful leg cramp I have ever had.  What a way to wake up in the middle of the night.  I have been able to keep the heartburn under control with TUMS as needed.  A friend recently introduced me to the smoothie flavored TUMS and they are much better than the traditional chalky version.  

Best moment this week: Seeing the finished crib and changing table in Baby B's room.  I almost cried because it made it that much more real, we are really going to have a baby before we know it!  Hubs has been working hard on refinishing and antiquing hand me down items for the room, the crib was my nieces and the changing table was actually mine when I was a baby, Pictures to come soon.)  I am actually running out the door now to go shopping for bedding with my mom, I am so excited!
