21 weeks

How far along?  21 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: Okay so I have gained 2 pounds but I think it is more due to traveling and just not eating healthy so Rick and I are back to a healthy lifestyle now that we have a few weeks staying in North Carolina.
Maternity clothes: Haven’t purchased any more maternity clothes but I have a feeling as I get further along in this pregnancy I might need some more clothes.
Sleep: Still sleeping good. It seems I am more and more uncomfortable flat on my back when sleeping so I am sure I will have stop soon. I am still sleeping 9-10 hours and feeling great every morning!
Best moment this week: The best moment would be getting the baby’s crib delivered! It still is sitting up in the loft, in pieces, but Rick and I hope to get it put together this next week. We also purchased  a matching dresser but one of the legs is broken so they are ordering us another one that is not broken. They look so nice even in pieces, lol. Everything is coming together, so exciting!
Miss anything? Missing sushi this week! Rick is really good as making sushi at home. He made it for dinner but I can only eat the cooked stuff. I really miss the raw salmon sashimi.
Movement: The best feeling of the pregnancy is when I feel him moving! I catch myself waiting for him. It also seems like it is becoming more like a routine when he kicks. It is about every two or three hours. I mostly feel him at night and in the morning.
Food cravings: Sushi!
Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
Gender: It’s a BOY! Still working on the middle name. I have it narrowed down to a couple that we really like but still to be determined:)
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: None.
Belly button in or out? In, not sure if my belly button would ever become and outie!  We will see of course:)
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy! Rick and I had a great weekend together! We took a day road trip and had lots of laughs. I am so lucky to have such a great guy!
Looking forward to: Getting his crib and dresser set up and in his room. Seeing it all come together will be fun and I will share the processes on this blog.
Days to go: 133 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of a carrot. He is about 10.5 inches from head to heel. He is practicing more and more martial arts and his movements are turning into full-fledged kicks and nudges. I have discovered a pattern to his activity. In other development, his eyebrows and lids are present now and in a few weeks the eyes can open and shut but the baby can’t see quite yet.
