Week 21

This is my last weekly fruit and then it turns into monthly fruit. Eeep

How's baby?
Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for hydration and nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies are most interested in tastes they've already experienced through amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you want your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch.

About me:
How far along? 21 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: about 6 lbs

Maternity clothes? yes and I love them

Stretch marks?yup....BOOOOOOOOO

Sleep: waking up at 4:30 every morning, but I'm able to fall right back asleep

Best moment this week: Finding out what we're having

Labor Signs: nada

Belly Button in or out? in

Weekly Wisdom: Hug your belly's tightly every day and let your loved ones know how much they mean to you

Milestones: Counting down the days until I get to meet my little boy while sliding down the hill of pregnancy. <----- how cheesy was that? :-)
