Week 21 Update

The weeks keep sailing by and before we know it, our little girl is going to be here! I am so ready, but also have started to realize that I'm really not. I really need to work on our registry this week and pick out paint color. My goal is to have the nursery completely done by the end of October. Sounds like I have plenty of time, but it's almost September and most of our weekends are full! Good news is there isn't a lot that needs to be done, so just a few days working in the nursery will get us where we want to be.

How far along?: 21 weeks, 2 days
Baby is the size of a: Pomegranate
Total weight gain/loss: 18lbs
The Bump: Definitely growing more and more every day.
Symptoms: I get winded very easily now. Definitely not a fan of that!
Food Cravings: Usually I want something sweet late at night, but I try to resist the urge.
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope!
Sleep: I've been sleeping pretty well aside from all the crazy dreams.
What I miss: My sanity. This week has been a tough one with being emotional. I'm happy, then sad, then angry all within one hour. If I find it annoying, I can only imagine what my husband must think of me.
Weddings Rings On or Off: On
Any Names Picked Out Yet: Charlotte Noel
Gender Prediction: Still a girl! We had our anatomy scan last week and she's still a she! PHEW!
Movement: I am feeling her more and more every day. I think I can start to feel a pattern in what time of day she moves the most.
Maternity Clothes: I need more! I am gaining weight all over, so my pre-pregnancy clothes don't fit at all. Doing the best I can with rotating the few maternity pieces I have. Getting dressed in the morning is definitely frustrating!
Labor Signs: None.
Best Moment of the Week: Reconfirming our little girl is still a girl. Of course getting to see her and listen to her heart was also pretty magical.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: I know it's a little early to already be wishing this, but I'm ready to meet her!

Linking up with Molly and Carly for Funday Monday!
