Weekly Update

How far along? 21 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: + 10lbs (2 lbs a week.....hope this doesn't continue, I could be in trouble!)

Sleep: I think I should just give up on sleep all together. Can anyone explain how you can barely keep your eyes open but the moment you crawl into bed you are wide awake (except maybe with your eyes closed)

Best moment this week: Seeing our little one yesterday and finding out baby is healthy and growing/developing normally

Movement: Feeling kick daily, mostly at night when I am finally quiet

Food cravings: chocolate ice cream, chocolate milk, frosted mini wheats, sugar!

Gender: It's a GIRL!

Belly Button in or out? In, but starting to get flatter.

What I miss: being able to reach to the bottom of the washing machine.

What I am looking forward to: buying little baby girl clothes

Baby Development: Baby is about 7 inches long (the size of a large banana) and almost 11 ounces. Baby's arms and legs are now in proportion with rest of her body, cartilage is turning to bone and neurons are getting connected between brain and muscles.

The ultrasound went well. Baby is healthy with no problems they could see. The doctor did say the baby is on the small side ~10th %tile so they might change the due date froom the 14th to the 18th so that the baby will be around the 30th %tile. Other than that all is well with both baby and I.
