bump update: 21 weeks

Holy Moly! Well over half way- pheeew. I am happy to say that this past week was the first time I was actually enjoying being pregnant. I have been EXCITED about the babies the entire time, but have felt horrible. So I finally feel better for the most part and am embracing my large bump. 

How far along? 21 weeks 

Total weight gain: 2 pounds

Maternity clothes? Yes- I loveeee them! Purchased a maternity bathing suit too, which I don't hate. Its just a black tankini.

Stretch marks? Not yet...trying to remember to use my belly oil

Sleep: Not too bad, I have trouble falling asleep due to some stress I think and then I wake up throughout the night to pee, but can usually fall back to sleep.

Best moment this week: Getting to see the little ones during my anatomy scan! It was about an hour long, so we had plenty of time to see them and all of their little parts. I was a little disappointed the tech didn't get us any good pictures of them, but she was focused on getting all the measurements she needed. 

Miss Anything?  Just feeling like myself. 

Movement: Yes! I love feeling them move. Can't wait for Dave to feel them.    

Food cravings: Still loving strawberry/banana smoothies! Now also loving "egg in a frame" for dinner- Dave makes it for me :) Also love vanilla ice cream with chocolate magic shell and rainbow sprinkles!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still pretty picky about meats/protein, but if it is in a dish (like a casserole) or fried (like chicken) its fine.     

Gender: boy and girl! :) :) 

Labor Signs: Nope   

Symptoms: Heart burn/indigestion- super annoying! I get out of breath super easily these days. Tired easily! 

Wedding rings on or off? On, but I think they'll be off soon. My fingers are getting swollen.

Looking forward to: Babymoon! We are planning it now and I am so ready/excited for it!
