Week 21

This past week might have been one of the best yet. We had our ultrasound on Thursday and it couldn’t have gone better. We got to watch baby K move around, stretch her legs, move her fingers, and practice some sucking/swallowing. Absolutely amazing.

We’ve started a list of names and we’re trying out one possibility right now. It’s actually been really tough to switch from the nickname we’ve been using to a potential name.

I also made our very first baby purchase on Friday night – a 3 pack of long sleeve onesies. They are so cute – it’s hard to believe that there will be an actual person wearing them next spring.

On to the stats:


  • How far along? 21 weeks (and 1 day)
  • Total weight gain: Official gain from Thursday’s weigh in, 7.2lbs
  • Maternity clothes?  Elastic waistbands FTW
  • Sleep: Pretty good on most nights. I didn’t sleep well in the hotel this weekend, but that was more of a bed issue than anything else
  • Cravings: I think I need a steak dinner sometime in the near-ish future. Also, I’m getting seriously excited for Thanksgiving food. Oh, and I’ve been thinking about yams a lot. Totally random.
  • Best moment this week: Seeing Baby K on the ultrasound and finding out we’ve got a GIRL on our hands! Also celebrating our 4th anniversary.
  • Movement: Getting more frequent and stronger
  • Gender:  Girl
  • Belly Button in or out? In
  • What I miss: Laying on my stomach
  • Milestones: Our big ultrasound
