21 Weeks

Entering my six month of pregnancy! Crazy!! For those of you that have been around for a while, you know that I did my weekly updates when I was pregnant with Campbell as well. I look back on those updates a lot to see what was going on with me during my first pregnancy. I was reading my 21 week update with Campbell (you can read it HERE if you want) and it is so wild how similar everything from my 21 week update was with him compared to this 21 week update. Either these babies are identical or my pregnancies are freakishly similar.
Size of Baby: Three quarters of a pound and 10.5 inches long, the length of a carrot

How I'm Feeling: I've felt really great this week! No headaches, no contractions, lots of energy!!

Cravings/Appetite: I sent Scott out on a search this week for these things called Jelly Belly petite sour hearts. It's a Valentine candy and they are soooo yummy. They're hard to come by so unfortunately I didn't get to indulge in my craving but I plan on ordering some off Amazon (yes that's correct) because I just really need some of these things.

Clothes: My jeans are too tight now. I'm getting away with looping a rubberband around the button but I'll probably only be able to do that for another week or two.

Movement: At the beginning of the week I kept telling Scott that Bennett doesn't move even half as often as Campbell did. Even having never been pregnant before, I knew that Campbell moved an insane amount so I haven't really thought much of it. As of the last few days though, the movements are starting to pick up. I can feel him when I'm standing/walking now instead of just laying or sitting. It's still not anything like Campbell but maybe as he puts on more weight it will be. I'm interested to see how this plays out. Scott and I are both crossing our fingers that maybe the lack of crazy movements means this baby will be just a little more chill and content than Campbell was.

Changes in Me: I've gained 2 pounds now and my belly is starting to get a little higher.

Baby Purchases: Well you know I can't go a week without a new baby purchase!! I have a problem. It's just too fun. I found another matching outfit that I couldn't live without. It may be my favorite to date. The boys names will be monogrammed on them, of course.
I also got a new Aden + Anais Easy Swaddle this week. I love all things Aden + Anais and these swaddles were the best when Campbell was using them. I already have two from Campbell but I remember at the time thinking I could have used another one. Anything that helps your baby sleep is money well spent!

Favorite Moment This Week: I pulled Campbell's preemie, newborn, and 0-3 month clothes out of storage and sorted through what I wanted for Bennett. It was so fun going through the clothes. I remembered pretty much everything but there were a couple of outfits I had forgotten about. I'm so excited that I'm going to be able to use these clothes again. It takes the guilt out of some of the splurges and it's fun that Bennett already has a closet full of summer clothes!

Looking Forward To: Tonight!! One of our friends is having a birthday today so a bunch of us are getting together for dinner then we're all going bowling after. It's going to be a fun evening with my closest buddies.
