21 weeks!!! *Pictures*

How Far Along: 21 weeks! There are now more weeks "down" than what's left "to go"!

How Big is The Baby: ONE POUND!!!  According to thebump, baby is growing from the size of a BANANA to the size of a PAPAYA!  What to expect says a SPAGHETTI SQUASH!

Total Weight Gain: I've decided that I will only answer this on doctor weeks since our scale is crap. My doctor and I will both be very pleased if I can keep the weight gain at 1 lb/week or about 5 per month.

Maternity Clothes: Pretty much exclusively!

Sleep: Friday night I went to bed at 8:30.  I was up at 10, 12, 1:30, 3, and 6- my alarm clock went off at 7.  Saturday night I went to bed at 9.  I was up at 11, 1, 3, and 5- my alarm went off at 7.  Last night I went to bed at 9. I was up at 10, 1, 2 (and didn't fall back asleep until 3)- my alarm went off at 5. 

Gender: BOY!!!

Movement: More frequent daily.  E tried to feel him moving around but as soon as he touches my belly the baby stops moving.  Even if he wasn't being difficult, I don't think he's kicking hard enough yet to be felt through the skin.

Food Cravings: Still fresh fruit.  My mom and I stopped at a fruit stand the other day and got some of the best plums I've ever had.  

What I Miss: ***DISCLAIMER- I MAY START TO SOUND WHINY AND I WOULD NOT TRADE ANYTHING FOR THIS PREGNANCY. I  KNOW MANY WOMEN WOULD LOVE TO BE IN MY SITUATION RIGHT NOW BUT THIS IS MY BLOG AND I'M SAYING HOW I FEEL***  I am SO tired! I would love to be able to sleep through the night.  I would even love to sleep for a 6 hour stretch!  I guess it is better preparing me for baby but if you're asking what I miss- I miss a good night's rest!

What I'm looking forward to: E being able to feel a kick! We're only two and a half weeks away from our big anatomy scan (why is my doctor the only one that waits until 24 weeks?!) and three weeks away from 24 weeks!

Milestones: We are now OVER the halfway point!
