21 weeks.

ETA: Thank you, thank you to those who offered info. on my "very important question" yesterday. I realize it was a dumb question & I figured it was that she was just measuring big, but I just wanted to make sure :)

Wow. It seems like I just did my 20 week post. That last week went so fast! I hope the rest of the time does too!!

Things are going well on the pregnancy front. Nothing really new & exciting except that HUBBY FELT CLAIRE for the first time last night! She was movin' & groovin' for a good 30 minutes & I finally put his hand on my lower abdomen & thump, thump. She kicked him!! It was seriously so sweet! His face lit up. At first he thought I was tricking him & thought I made that thump. Uh, no. That was baby girl! Yay!!

Ok, survey time!

How far along?: 21 weeks!!
How big is baby?: Approx. the size of a large banana.
Weight gain?: Since I'm exercising & cutting back on the horrible foods, I weigh the same as last week! Thank goodness.
Stretch Marks?: None yet. I hope none ever!
Maternity Clothes?: Yesssir
Sleep?: Honestly, no complaints-once Clarie stops kicking me. I just hate waking up in the mornings. It's damn near impossible
Best moment this week?: Ordering the crib! & Definitely yesterday when hubby felt baby girl kick!
Food cravings?: Nothing new. Still MEXICAN! Oh & french toast. I love how I crave all the healthy things.....
Gender?: Baby girl!!!
Movement?: Yes. Everyday now. She's very active either after I eat or when I lay down on my back.
What I miss?: Being able to stand or walk for more than 30 minutes without my shins killing me. Oy.
Belly button?: pretty much completely flat. I HATE how there's just a big hole in my shirts. I'd rather it be out than all flat & deep. haha.
What I'm looking forward to?: Getting the crib in & painting the nursery this weekend!
Milestone?: Buying the crib? Claire kicking her daddy :)
