Hi.

Welcome to She Is Blessed. Hope you follow along on my journey through the adventures of marriage, becoming a mom, creations in the kitchen, my love of all things sweet, and my journey of faith.

21 Weeks

21 Weeks

How far along: 21 weeks, 2 days
Total weight gain: 14 total...no more poptarts for breakfast. 
Maternity clothes? Almost 100% maternity. I'm holding on to one pair of pants for work when I wear my belly band but most of my work clothes are all maternity. I just took advantage of the labor day sales and bought a few things at Motherhood Maternity which should carry me into Fall. 
Stretch marks? Negative...a little itchy on my belly still but I've continued to use the oil and my favorite lotion to help.    
Sleep: Still sleeping pretty well although if I don't take a nap by 1 or 2 I can't nap later in the afternoon. I'm definitely feeling bed calling my name around 8 every night. Typically Ronnie and I head to bed around 9 and watch King of Queens which usually makes me fall right asleep. 
Best moment this week: Feeling baby girl move! I was sitting at work and kept feeling the sensation of popcorn popping towards my right side. I finally put it together that they were kicks that I had been feeling the night before. It was so exciting and made me feel giddy to feel her finally move. 
Miss anything? Waking up and feeling rested. I feel like I could sleep hours more when I wake up for work each day. 
Movement: yes! To me it felt like popcorn popping or popping bubbles, not butterfly flutters like I've heard others describe it.  
Food cravings: Anything cold and icy.  I wanted a fountain Dr. Pepper the other day which is so unlike me since I NEVER drink soda. The thought of how cold soda is was definitely appealing. 
Gender:  Still a baby girl in there!
Labor Signs: Nope!
Symptoms: I feel pretty achy when I wake up in the morning, like I've been sleeping really hard. If I don't sleep well, the nausea is in full force right when I wake up until I go to bed again. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Looking forward to: Cooler weather towards the end of this week which will still be in the mid to high 80's here but that sounds amazing compared to the high 90's-100's we've had for the last month or so.
