Twenty One Weeks

How far along: 21 weeks 

Size of baby: Our sweet babe is the size of a pomegranate! I've included his or her newest picture below! :) 

Total weight gain/loss: Still gaining, but that means baby's growing!

Maternity clothes: My  Momma gave me a few new things when she came last weekend! 

Gender: I had my ultrasound last night! I have been praying that we would get a tech that understood the whole gender reveal thing. The Lord definitely answered my prayers! She was sweet enough to turn the screen as she was determining the gender so we couldn't see. I was also anxious that the baby wouldn't cooperate for her, but it did and she is 99.9% sure of what it is! She sealed the answer in an envelope I'm taking to the bakery this afternoon! Daniel is convinced it's a girl because the tech kept checking just to be sure. He said if it was a boy she would've known right away! We shall see! Only four more days until our party! I am so excited!

Movement: This baby moves constantly! It was flipping and moving so much on the screen. I think we're in for one busy little one come October!

Sleep: I've been sleeping well this week!

What I miss: Other than my energy and sleeping on my back nothing at all! 

Cravings: Still nothing really specific, but I haven't been able to make it until 12:00 to eat lunch. I'm starving by 11:00!

Symptoms: Feeling really good this week, but my growing belly and this busy baby are proof that we're moving right along!

Best Moment this Week: Getting to see our baby again! I was surprised at how much it has changed since our ultrasound at eleven weeks. We could see it's little mouth opening and closing, and it even had it's arms crossed at one point. Our sweet tech showed us where it's spine was and we could see the little heart beating. The heart rate was a healthy 147 bpm! It's feet were kicking like crazy! I feel movement but don't feel the kicks yet. She said I'll definitely start feeling them soon! We could even see it's toes! I am so grateful for a healthy baby. I feel so undeserving of this precious gift!
