21 week bumpdate!

Black was not the best option for a bump picture but beleive me it's there!








How far along? 21 weeks over halfway there!!!!

Total weight gain: No idea and honestly I’m not too worried about it. I had a long talk with a friend that is a nurse and she said this to me and a lightbulb went off  she said “your body knows what it needs during this pregnancy maybe your gaining all this weight to help your babies early on so that if you do deliver early they got a chance to beef up a little bit” She’s right! My body was made to do this and so I’m listening to it.
Maternity clothes? Yes maternity clothes with some regular tops still mixed in barely they are not becoming too short!
Stretch marks? No new ones. Using lotion twice a day morning and night.

Sleep: Off and on. The pelvic pressure is insane and I feel it most at night. I have it in the notes in my phone to ask my dr about it next week at our appointment
Best moment this week: Our gender reveal is this weekend so we have been working on final prep for that. It’s crazy to think that we will know so soon what we are having. Plus we have some baby names nailed down and that will change depending on the genders.
Miss Anything? For some reason this week I really wanted a glass of wine. First time this whole pregnancy. And a deli sub as in not hot I really wanted a ham and cheese cold sub.
 Movement: Yes two ninjas in there. I can feel them from the outside but I swear they know when Michael is trying to feel them and stop.

Food cravings: Turkey back with cheese melted on it wrapped in a whole grain tortilla. It sounds weird but it’s delicious and healthy since I measure out one serving of cheese! Cottage cheese, yogurt and still peanut butter m&m’s
Anything making you queasy or sick: I feel like I’m okay right now nothing affecting me too much.
 Gender: We will know this weekend!
Labor Signs: No and to be honest I wouldn’t know them if they hit me in the face. With Grayson I didn’t think I was contracting until I went in to be induced and I was having off the chart contractions. I never experience Braxton hicks so I have no idea.

Symptoms: A giant belly and the fact that the pelvic pressure has sent me into tears a few times this week.
Belly Button in or out? Flat. My belly looks fake
Wedding rings on or off? My band is off but my engagement ring is on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!
Looking forward to: Gender reveal!!!!
Grayson: He still likes to kiss my belly and snuggle his babies sometimes. He knows he’s going to be a big brother and he told me he will help feed and burp them.
I’m trying to focus on the happy things like two babies but really this week has been rough on my body and I know why it’s because I have been over doing it. I will have more information on that after a specialist appointment today for Grayson because we are hoping for some answers when it comes to him. I’m just hoping for a relaxing weekend so that my body and rest a little bit.
