21 weeks pregnant!

I've gotten a little bit behind. I normally do these every 2 weeks but never did my 20 week recap. Everything is going great and I'm halfway there!

Total weight gain: 8 lbs. My bottoms are starting to get tighter and I think it's time for a new bathing suit. Small bottoms just aren't exactly cutting it anymore, and I apologize to any people on the beach yesterday that may have seen a little more on the backside than what they wanted to see when I was trying to take my shorts off haha!

Maternity clothes? Yes but not exclusively. I wear some maternity tops. 

Stretch marks? You know I'm just not sure. I can't tell if some of these around my belly button are older ones that I can see more clearly now because the skin is more stretched, or if some are new ones. 

Sleep: It's actually been pretty good these past two weeks minus the occasional wake up and not being able to fall back to sleep for 2 hours. 

Best moment this week: This past Friday we had the anatomy scan and everything looks great. I felt even more in love with her seeing her little body and her little profile. She's healthy and I'm definitely feeling very blessed!

Movement: I've been feeling her move every day and I just love it. Around 20 weeks I was able to see taps on the outside of my belly. 

Food cravings: I really haven't gotten cravings this pregnancy. Sometimes a random food item will pop in my head and I'll think about how that sounds good right now, but nothing I have to have. I have been enjoying cold m&m's at night with a cold bottle of water. 

Food aversions: Nothing I can think of this week.

Labor Signs: Nope! According to my scan last week cervix is still long and closed as it should be. My braxton hicks have also calmed down. They come on more when I'm overly stressed or the girls are at it and fighting a lot. 

Symptoms: Itchy skin and getting breathless a lot. I found out that baby girl is currently breech so with her head up high that might explain why I'm out of breath a lot. 

So excited about having another sweet baby girl to dress. Baby bibs are from my shop

Have a great Monday!
