WIWW: 21 Weeks

I’ve always thought the “What I wore Wednesday” theme was pretty fun, but never really was brave enough to try it myself. When I got pregnant though, I decided I’d combine that with my weekly updates as a way of sharing both! I failed however at getting a good picture Sunday {when I hit my “weekly” mark} so I just asked Wes to take one quick tonight, not really thinking that my goal was to combine outfit-showing-off + baby bump. I’ll get there 🙂 So to at least get things started, this week I’ve got a picture and I filled out the little survey I’ve seen on several expectant mommy’s blogs… not sure if I’ll continue that though as it seems a lot of it would get pretty repetitive. Anyways, here we go:

What I Wore
Raspberry & grey striped Motherhood Maternity Sweater
Grey MM tank
Maternity jeans {which you can’t even see… way to go me :P}
Accessories: wedding ring + braided bun + pearl earrings

How far along? 21 weeks, 3 days {I forgot to take the picture Sunday, so this is me today!}

Size of Baby:
  About 10.5″ and 3/4 lbs {according to baby center anyways :P}

Maternity Clothes: I guess technically I still wear both. Mostly maternity, but I can still wear “regular” Tshirts and sweatpants/shirts. Like those even count…

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +4lbs total


girl 🙂

Belly Button In/Out:
still in… but definitely stretching!

Labor Signs:

None yet, thank goodness!

Yep! And I love it 🙂

Still pretty good… I’ve always moved around a lot in my sleep, so not much has changed.
Cravings/Aversions: Rice Chex. Like every day 🙂

My sense of smell has been crazy with this pregnancy… other than that I’m pretty much “normal” I’d say 


Content. I feel like this pregnancy is going by soooo much faster than my first one. Probably because I have my first child to take care of lol! Looking forward to little girl being here, but not counting the days just yet 😛

Best Moment this Week:
Discussing baby names with Wes.

What I Miss: Right now, nothing 🙂

What I am Looking Forward To:
Picking & announcing our name!
Milestones: Over half way there! And we found out it’s a girl 2 weeks ago 🙂

Next Appointment:
in 2 weeks
