How Far Along: 21 weeks
What I miss: Cold lunch meat
Sleep: I am mastering the sleeping on my sides.
Symptoms: Feeling pretty good this week
Cravings: Big chunky hash brown potatoes with onions, zucchini and ketchup, with a side of bacon. Can you tell I'm hungry this morning.
Gender- BABY BOY!
Movement: He was a moving machine last week. I kept feeling him and I thought that it was strong enough for David to feel so one night last week I drank some orange juice and told David to put his hand on my stomach and he could feel BW! I loved watching David's face. I didn't feel BW a lot this week (I think my pants were in the way of telling) but last night he was moving up a storm. I put my hand there and I felt something larger than a flick, it was some kind of body part. Based on his positioning at the ultra sound, I think it was a butt or a head.
Maternity Clothes: I am sporting the leggings in full effect. I think these will be my BFF for the fall/winter. Pants just aren't comfortable.
Best Moments this week: Wow, it's been a great week. The gender ultra sound, the party, David feeling BW. Not sure I can top this one.
What I'm looking forward to: I think we are going to order BW's crib bedding soon! We (my sister, mom and I) have been busy all week picking out diff. options. I just couldn't' find something I liked online or in-stores as they all had a theme/character to them and I am more into patterns. We're going to go with a talented etsy seller who will customize the bedding for me. It does take between 10-12 weeks to come in. I should be able to share next week, hopefully!
Notes: We also purchased our plane tickets home to NY for Thanksgiving. I am looking forward to seeing my sister and family up in NY. We are also going to be having a shower for BW! Just a warning, book your plane tickets soon for the holidays. They are ridiculously expensive and there isn't much to choose from on the time and day options.
