My Brain is kind of a jumbled mess this am. Between Easter activities and staying up late to watch the rockets last night, I'm pretty out of it and don't know where I am on any of my to-do lists. Now, onto my bumpdate, to be honest, these surveys are getting a little boring for me. But I did have this this one in the que, and want to be able to look back. Info was written and picture was taken on 21 weeks last Thursday :) Ps. that's Kristen's bathroom, not mine.
How far along: 21 weeks

Baby size: a banana they say. No clue!

Weight gain: 11 pounds, which is two pounds from last week, which is kinda scary. I definitely feel like I grew a lot from last week to this week, definitely more than any other week.

Stretch marks: no, and I’ve been slacking on applying bio oil. I felt like I was stretching a few times this week, like I just F E L T it. Then I would run to the bathroom but there was nothing there. Phew! 

Mood: Happy and anxious to get cracking on our third floor makeover. We plan to finally furnish our master suite with big kid furniture, and then move on to the nursery! 

Sleep: I had a few moments of eating in the middle of the night to never fall back asleep last week, but I think I’ve gotten the hang of dosing back off.

Gender: Little Miss C! no name yet, I don’t even know if we have serious contenders at point.

Movement:  YES. My little peanut has just been swooshing around in there! Lots of strong flutters and quivers! I haven’t “seen” it yet tho! It’s still very dainty at this point, and always makes me smile.

Best moment this week: Finally feeling strong flutters during the day. I was mostly feeling them at night while laying down, and she’s definitely brightened my work day J  oh and buying three pairs of 1 inch heels shoes! So nice to have prego-friendly shoes.

Looking forward to: Tanning in Rock Port this weekend! And setting a date for our paint party with the fam! We have so much to get done and my sister is coming in one weekend to help us.

Food cravings: salads, sandwiches, jalapeno chips from Schlotsky’s. Nothing too crazy or strong lately. I still hate very salty food. I did have my favorite Austin Tex Mex twice this weekend! I swear it was my motivation to actually drive there.

Anything making you queasy or sick: still an empty stomach. I tried to ditch my daily piece of Zofran (1/8 or 1/16 of a pill) on Monday and Tuesday and got the pukeface both days.  I’m so used to it now that I doesn’t really bother me. Crazy right??

Labor Signs: nopers.

What I miss: feeling pretty / shopping for fun clothes

Symptoms: still mild m/s; and I finally found out why my mouth tastes like pennies sometimes. It’s called dysgeusia. So weird.

Workouts: I finally got a few in.  I really hate to walk because it hurts my lower back, but I am making a point to swim a lot this weekend!

Things that suck: needing maternity clothes, but trying to refrain since paint, wallpaper and furniture expenses are adding up! Very dry hands. I find myself washing my hands so much (constant bathroom breaks! Geesh!) and I guess it’s drying them out. And last but not least, bending over is getting harder. Not impossible yet, but definitely not comfortable.
