Pregnancy Log - 21 weeks pregnant

21 weeks - baby is the size of a pomegranate
21 weeks - baby is the size of a pomegranate
How far along? 21 weeks

Baby Size: Pomegranate - 10 1/2 inches, head to heel (According to thebump)

Maternity clothes?  I’ve still been wearing regular clothes but I think it’s time!  My regular clothes are getting uncomfortable, but I’d rather get non-maternity clothes like empire waist dresses, that I would still want to wear after I have the baby.  But I think I need to get some maternity clothes too!

Stretch marks? Nope, still lotioning up!

Sleep:  I was super tired this week, but I’ve been sleeping well.  And most nights I don’t have to get up in the night to bathroom, which I’m very happy about!  That probably won’t last though.  I’m a hard sleeper, and it’s hard for me to fall back asleep after I get up.

Dreams: I’ve been having crazy dreams and they have been clearer than before I was preggers.  I had one that I was making orange juice (something that I kinda crave) but mixing a cheese whiz type sauce and dishwater in with it.  But I thought it was great in the dream… hopefully I won’t start getting crazy cravings like that!

I also had a dream this week that I could see my baby boy’s face very clearly when he pressed it up against my skin.  So I reach into my belly (almost like it was a shirt) and pulled out the baby to see him.  He had super blonde hair and blue eyes and was tiny, and I remember thinking maybe he has light hair and eyes because he isn't finished cooking yet.  I tested out one of my top names on him but he was somehow complaining that I shouldn’t be taking him out yet.  He said he a stomach cramp so I put him back in my belly and got nervous – so I went to the doctors and thankfully the doctor said the baby was fine. 

Best moment this week: I was exhausted this week, so it’s been pretty low key.  My close girlfriend found out she’s having a girl!  Seems like everyone else has been having boys, so I’m calling dibs for my little guy :)

Miss Anything?  Blue cheese and margaritas 

Movement:  I'm feeling big movements now that are almost startling at times because they catch me off guard. But it's pretty cool!  My hubby also kinda felt some kicks, but they weren't the hard ones!

Food cravings:  Things with peanut butter, like peanut butter cup ice cream :)

Have you started to show yet: My belly has been growing fast these past few weeks, definitely showing now!

Gender prediction:  He's definitely a boy!

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out? Still in 

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  I haven’t been moody or emotional at all lately… better knock on wood!

Looking forward to: I think we are getting close to picking a name.  I think I could narrow it down to two, and I think I know what name we’ll go with but it’s a big decision.

My dreams are so vivid since I've gotten pregnant too. I dreamt pretty often before but now I dream ALL NIGHT and my dreams are so clear! I usually dream about people I've just met or only met once. So strange...

Good luck on name picking! It's fun when you have the name and you can start calling the little guy by it :)

Oh my gosh, the dreams can get so crazy! Mine have been getting more and more strange, LOL. I wish we could do without the scary/weird ones and have more nice ones. :-)
