21 weeks

How far along: 21 weeks

Total weight change: down a pound from 2 weeks ago! This merits a separate post- coming soon.

Maternity clothes: I’ve mostly been wearing my regular clothes but sticking to dresses and other looser clothing items. Paired with tights or maternity leggings, these have been working for me so far. Today I wore my maternity pants to work with the bella band and it feels a tad tight on the belly??

Stretch marks: no

Sleep: Still no! I feel like I’ll soon go insane. The only nights I get a decent night’s sleep is if I take a Tylenol PM which I’ve now been doing 3 nights a week to stop myself from collapsing, but other nights at most I get 4 hours of shut-eye. Which is really hard to function on :(

Best moment this week: Anticipation for tomorrow’s dr visit. I cannot believe today is the last day we have of not knowing little love’s gender :)

Movement: Still feeling the flurries and “churning” of tummy type of feelings… quite regularly. It's pretty cool.

Food cravings: I hate to say this, but last few days, I almost seem to have some return of nausea … I haven’t been very hungry, which might be tied to a sudden state of constipation. Add to that the no sleep, and I officially label this the worst week of pregnancy so far :( :( :(

Gender: tomorrow. 930am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What I miss: sleep

Milestones: Too tired to think of one for this week!

So excited for gender day! Sorry about the sleep - I am sleeping much better these days than the previous two months - maybe there is hope!

I can't wait to hear what you're having! I was sleeping terrible but now in week 22, I'm actually sleeping all the way through the night almost. Maybe it will get better for a bit, before it gets much worse. :)
