21 Weeks Pregnancy Chalkboard Update

How far along? 21 weeks! Baby is almost a foot long and almost one pound!

Gender: ITS A BOY!

Total Weight Gain: 4.5lbs Big jump from last week with a 1.5lb weight gain! Haha.

Stretch Marks: Starting to notice a few on my hips. No linea negra or stretch marks on my belly

Belly Button: In.. starting to try to poke out! Belly ring still in though.

Wedding Rings On/Off:  On. Actually fitting a little bit loose?

Movement: All the time. His hard movements come after my morning cup of joe! Daddy actually SAW him kick this morning. Feels like I am on top of a rollercoaster going downward. Such a cool feeling!

Feeling: Feeling great! No issues.

Cravings: CHEESE

Symptom: Had a couple of Braxton-Hicks contractions last week which were scary to me but are said to be common around this time to prepare body for labor.

Missing: A nice glass of wine! Sleeping on my tummy!

Looking Forward to: Our diagnostic ultrasound in 1 weeks!

Sleep: Trouble falling asleep at night. My bedtime has somehow moved from 9pm to 11pm!

Exercise:  Doing cardio around 6 days a week now for 30 minutes on the Elliptical. I also go for runs around he neighborhood or on the beach. Now doing weights again-legs and arms. 

Eating: Healthy all the way! 2,300 cals per day. Lots of fruits, veggies, and lean meats.Trying to cut out any cheat meals since I am starting to finally grow. I usually cook all of my meals at home to avoid eating out and extra unwanted calories.
