Baby #2: 21 Weeks

How Far Along: 21 Weeks

Size of baby: Around 10.5 inches long  and 3/4 of a pound

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  +11.5 pounds. I'm definitely feeling large these days and I'm a little scared knowing how far I have to go. 

Maternity Clothes: Yes and I feel like I wear the same few shirts over and over. I definitely have some favorites and I should probably try to mix it up a little bit!

Gender: A baby girl, Adelyn Elise

Movement: She's moving quite a bit! She seemed to really like the music at church this week- she was dancing along!

Symptoms: The hip pain is getting worse by the day. I think the best way to describe it is that it feels like the bones in my hips are grinding together when I walk or move a certain way. I've been trying to do some stretching to help but other than that I think I'll just have to deal with it.

Sleep:  Still good. The belly doesn't seem to impede my sleep at all! I had one rough night where I didn't sleep a wink but I can blame that on the 2.5 hour nap I took that day. I've been trying to avoid naps since then even though there are some days when I feel like I NEED one!

What I miss: Nothing that I can think of

Cravings: Sour cream and salsa (mixed) on anything- baked potatoes, nachos, eggs. I know it's weird but it's so delicious.

Best Moment This Week: On Tuesday while Emerson was napping I was able to go get a haircut and to spend some time shopping, drinking Starbucks, and reading magazines. It was so nice and much needed!

Shopping: Just these faux Toms at TJ Maxx. I know babies don't really wear shoes at that age but I just couldn't resist. Now I want to get Emerson a pair of real ones to match!

I'm pretty anxious to get started on the nursery. I know we still have plenty of time but I feel like the holidays are going to make the time fly by. I'm also really excited to go through all of Emerson's tiny baby clothes to see what will work for Adelyn.  I'm thinking we will get the paint for the nursery this week and I will probably also order the crib. Then all we will really need is a dresser. The room is very tiny so that will be about all of the furniture that it can hold. I'm thinking it will be pretty easy to decorate since it's small and there is not very  much wall space due to the large window and closet. Even so, I want to make it special for our girl!

Love your new hair! So good for mamas to get out for a little pampering and break :) Your hip pain doesn't sound fun. My arms have been falling asleep every night from sleeping only on my sides. It's a pain!
