21 weeks

**sorry no pic this week, will definitely resume next week as i feel like i've grown a ton just in the past week!**

How Far Along: 21 weeks

Total Weight Gain: we're in SD at the moment so don't have a scale, but i'm SURE i've gained a good 5-7 pounds out here. i haven't been running & have been indulging in chipotle, in-n-out, little italy dinners, etc :)

Maternity Clothes: i can still fit into my old jeans, but my tops are definitely fitting tighter these days. i've mostly just been wearing maternity camisoles with sweaters

Movement: moving around a ton! her movements continue to amaze me with their gradually growing strength

Sleep: same as before, still waking up a few times a night but nothing unbearable

Symptoms: nothing new that i can think of

Cravings: um. where to start? mayonnaise. i love mayonnaise. also on the list:
-luna nutz over chocolate bars
-chipotle. more chipotle
-pasta dinners...the bigger the plate the better

Emotions: this has been a rough week, i'll be sure to recap later. we've been doing a lot of praying and a lot of waiting.

Best Moment of the Week: seeing baby lyla during a 3d ultrasound in texas this past weekend. obviously she is the cutest baby in the whole wide world :) also, pretty sure we've decided to name her lyla grace. little things like that make this all feel so much more real!



  1. can i just say...i loooooove the name Lyla! This is what i wanted to name our very first pregnancy (back in Sept. 09). Then it was still my top contenter for names for Halle. She was either going to be a Halle Jane or Lyla Jane. I was sad when it got voted down by dh :( i still love love love it! great choice!

  2. "wonderful post- just what I needed to read today :)"

    I am so glad you liked it. :)

    Yay 21 weeks! Half way through, the fun part is feeling all those kicks, trust me they get ALOT stronger as they go along.
