Me at 21 Weeks

I am OH-ficially 21 weeks knocked up. So why not continue taking photos and doing a cute week-by-week FYI session from here on out (ala Little Baby Garvin)?

Me at 21 Weeks

How far along? 21 Weeks.
Total weight gain/loss: We Shall Not Speak of This. Though our nurse practitioner didn't seem too concerned about my weight gain – only that it could increase the odds of getting gestational diabetes.
Maternity clothes? Still living in yoga pants and tank tops. I'm adding my old, regular jean jackets or cardigans on top (but can't button them closed).
Stretch marks? No new ones.
Sleep: Sleeping great though still having issues with hip pain.
Best moment this week: Finding out the sex of our baby and seeing her in the ultrasound.
Miss Anything? Lunch meat and medium rare steak. I miss them very, very much. and being able to cross my legs for longer than 3 minutes.
Movement: Nope. At least, not that I'm aware of. Everyone who examined me this week was very, very surprised that I wasn't feeling anything yet (since she was practically an Olympic swimmer during both the ultrasound and the fetal heartbeat monitering) so I'm thinking it should happen soon.
Food cravings: Fruit, fruit, fruit + Reese's minis.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Meat (I'm taking up the extra nutritional slack by eating lots more spinach and kale).
Gender: It's a girl!
Labor Signs: No.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but I've noticed that I'm starting to experience the nesting instinct and feel anxiety about post-baby stuff.
Looking forward to: Buying baby girl stuff!

In other news, we finally got into a doctor on Wednesday and did all the orientation stuff, lab/blood work, ultrasound, physical exam, consultation, and pre-glucose testing. I'll talk about all that later because you know what's fun? Passing out in the bathroom after having your blood taken.
