Starting next week I am going to try to post these earlier! My pictures are late on this one because Emeline has been sick with either HFMD or chickenpox! It has been rough because it is in her throat and she hasn’t slept for three nights! I hope tonight we can all get some sleep and she kicks this illness soon!

I hope you enjoy my 21 week update!

How far along? 21 weeks!
Total weight gain: 147lbs, I FINALLY weighed myself!
Before I got pregnant I weighed somewhere between 130-135lbs. My weight before Emeline was always 128-130lbs and I got pretty close to normal for myself following her birth. However, I am going to say I was a bit closer to 135lbs because of all the stress from moving and how I completely stopped working out. I am also certain I ate more! So, it lookes like a 12lbs gain so far. By this time with Emeline I had gained almost nothing.
Maternity clothes?  Still just maternity jeans. I might need to start looking for longer shirts though as my t-shirts are starting to get a bit short. I usually wear a size XS/S, so with growing boobs and a tummy they tend to get short rather quickly during pregnancy for me.
Stretch marks? Nope
Best moment this week: Getting our car back!
Miss anything? The Sun! This whole weak has been just gloomy and gray.
Movement: I feel him move the most just when I wake up and in the evening somewhere between 10-11:30 for about 3-5 minutes. I am also starting to feel some kicks during the day here and there, which is really exciting for me!
Food cravings: I have had the BIGGEST sweet tooth this week!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Eggs and strong cheeses!
Gender: Boy
Labor signs: No, and I really don’t have a lot of Braxton Hicks like I did with Emeline. I thought I would this time too, but no.
Symptoms: Heartburn, gas and PGP, but that is easing up a bit, so I think I can start working out again!
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: TIRED!
Looking forward to: Emeline not being sick anymore!
Compared to 1st pregnancy: I am having a lot more symptoms this time around. My skin is also REALLY dry. I think my diet needs an overhaul, but it is difficult when you live in someone else’s house with so many people, especially when they are vegetarian and you are not. I feel awkward making something only for myself and a bit selfish doing it too.


Stay tuned for my 22 week update next Saturday!
