21 Weeks

Today I enter my 6th month of pregnancy. I can't believe I'm 6 months pregnant! How did that happen? While I'm down here in Little Rock at my parents house, my Dad used his fancy camera equipment and took some bump photos of me in their backyard yesterday. Here is this weeks update!
Size of Baby: 3 quarters of a pound and 10 1/2 inches long or about the length of a carrot.

How I'm Feeling: I feel awesome! Other than the little one kicking inside of me and wanting to go to bed around 7:00 every night, I would never know I was pregnant.
Cravings/Appetite: Nothing unusual this week. My appetite has been pretty decent although I still eat less than I did pre-pregnancy. I haven't had any cravings but I did stumble upon a Chick-Fil-A chocolate chunk cookie for the first time last weekend and I've probably had 3 others since. They're Y-U-M.

Clothes: It finally happened. My jeans are officially too tight. I can technically still button them but I think I would be miserably uncomfortable wearing them all day. I attempted the rubber band trick but it wasn't comfortable either. I decided it was time to hang up my favorite jeans and embrace the maternity jeans. It will forever be easy for me to remember when my bump outgrew my clothes because it happened on Thanksgiving day.
Movement: Campbell moves so much! Last week I couldn't feel him when I was standing up but now I can. Having never been pregnant before I didn't know what to expect with the movements but he moves so much more than I realized babies moved. One day I decided to count how many times I could feel him and I counted 10 times in just 10 minutes!

Changes in Me: I weighed on Wednesday before we left for town and 21 weeks later I finally made it back to my pre-pregnancy weight. It's getting hard for me to put socks and boots on. I can totally see how pregnant ladies slowly gravitate towards shoes that they can easily slip their feet into. It's starting to feel like my back and torso are stretching in length and I may or may not have googled to see if it's possible to gain a few inches of height during pregnancy. The answer is no in case you're wondering. I could stand to gain an inch of length in my short torso so I was a tad disappointed to learn that's not what's happening.
Baby Purchases: We ordered our glider from West Elm today! The glider was one of the harder nursery decisions for me to make and I went back and forth between 4 different ones for the longest time. I copied my BF and got the same glider she has so I've already seen it in person which is nice. I chose a different color though so fingers crossed that it looks good.

Favorite Moment This Week: My family getting to feel Campbell moving around! Sometimes he gets shy and the second someone puts their hand on my belly he won't budge but he decided to show out for his family and kick extra hard for them. I love that they can feel him now! It's such a sweet thing to be able to share with them.
Looking Forward To: Jamaican paradise next week!! I'm so looking forward to laying by the pool, walking on the beach and drinking many pina coladas (sans the rum of course). Plus, a tan makes you look thinner and heaven knows I could use the help.
