Pregnancy Journal: Weeks 17-21

How far along: 21weeks! Half way there baby! Time is simply flying by!

Size of Baby:
Endive. 10.5 inches!

Gender:
It's a BOY!

Weight Gain: 8 pounds total.

Symptoms:
I pee all. the. time!

Belly Button: In for now but it's definitely stretched to it's limits.

Exercise: Um.... I walk the dog... when it's not pouring rain, which it's been doing A LOT of lately. But my goal for the second half of this pregnancy is to (try to) exercise regularly (beyond walking the dog) so that my body is strong and ready for labor.

Sleep: Still the hardest part of being pregnant and I have a feeling it's only going to get trickier the further along we get. I am really looking forward to sleeping on my back again in about 19 weeks.

Maternity Clothes: Don't get me started on the sizing of maternity jeans or the limited options for petite ladies. I'm rocking leggings every day and really looking forward to warmer weather so I can wear more dresses. But I finally caved and bought a new bra and everyone is happier for it. And I picked up a couple of tops that are not specific maternity wear but I stuffed a sweater under each shirt in the dressing room and I think they should work as I continue to get rounder.

Best Moment of this Month: Finding out the gender!!!! Feeling the baby kick!!! My baby shower (which I will bog about)!!! All the exclamation points. I am just loving being pregnant.

Looking Forward to Next Month: Getting started on the nursery now that we know it's a boy. I have also been holding out on buying anything for our little one and now I can't wait to start loading up on all the cute little boy clothes and necessities. I also love watching my belly grow and feeling more baby kicks and punches. Basically I like to stare at my belly all day and wait to see it move. He's a wiggle worm.
(I didn't take a chalkboard pic at 20weeks because we weren't at home. Also I didn't know how to draw an endive....)
