21 Weeks

How far along: 21 Weeks
How big is the baby: Now babies are measured from head to toe, so the baby is the length of banana-10.5 inches. According to my apps, it looks like a baby at this point, just tiny!
Weight gain: About 11.5 pounds. Suddenly I am packing on the pounds. Crazy holiday eating! I need to get back to my fruits and vegetables! 
Doctor/Medical Stuff: Nothing new. Just trying to remember no lifting. Before the placenta previa I was a firm believer in "(Most) Anything you could do before pregnancy you can do after". But now I am limited and I don't always remember! The back pain has been aggravating me again pretty bad the last couple days. And I'm not even sitting in little chairs since it is winter break!
Clothes: Still loving on my maternity pants. I need to take some time to rearrange my closet and make more room for all my maternity clothes! I have had some very generous friends lend me some great clothes in addition to everything I have found. Maternity clothes can be super cute!
Sleep: Been sleeping mostly well the last couple days. Just as soon as I wake up, I am up. No falling back to sleep for me. 
Movement:  Still only feeling him occasionally. I wish it was more consistent! 
Food/Aversions: None.  
What I miss: Sleeping in! 
What I am looking forward to: Feeling more movement! 
Oh! And This: I am totally addicted to pinning little boy stuff on Pinterest! I have several boards and I am looking forward to making little boy crafts like bowties and cardigan onesies!
