Week 21 bumpdate!

How far along: 21 weeks

Baby Size: Carrots!
Weight gain: I'm up to 8 pounds gain. I really need to get out and moving, but it is rough to get the motivation when it's so darn cold!

Maternity clothes: Still working on this, but I have permission to wear yoga pants to work as long as they are not obviously yoga pants.

Stretch marks: Still just little ones.

Sleep: I'm good with sleeping, still, but I'm still very itchy.  It's mostly in my torso where all of my skin would be stretching, so I'm thinking that is the cause of this aggravation.  

Gender: Girls!  Though, I have been advised that they WILL be girly-girls.  This is especially true when they hang out with cousin Cortney.  ;)

Best moment this week:
I'm still reeling over last week, but yesterday the little ones were really movin' and groovin' in there.
Looking forward to: Stocking up on baby stuff.  I'm excited to already have one bag of clothes!
What I miss:  I still miss soda.

Movement: They are definitely making their presence known.  It's hard to know how long they will be active when they are moving, but I try to get Dale to be able to feel them if he can.  

Food cravings:  I can't seem to get Taco Bell out of my head, but maybe that's because I haven't had it in a while.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!  I just have to watch the salt and limit portion size.  These are not bad habits to get into, though.  Good idea, girls!

Labor Signs: It is still far too early.

Symptoms: My belly is like a balloon... still getting bigger and bigger....  
Belly Button in or out? All the way out!
Rings on or off? Still on!  Yay for the little things in life!

Mood: I'm still so excited that we finally got to share with our families!  I am getting worried about the timing of the showers, but I'm probably psyching myself out.
