21 Weeks

How Far Along? 21 Weeks (2/20/2012)
Sleep: Getting better! Or maybe I am getting used to not sleeping for a whole night! It seems the more pillows I can wrap around my body throughout the night, the more comfortable I am! 
Best Moment this Week: My Birthday AND Lily's Birthday! I had SUCH an amazing weekend! I can't stop smiling when I think of this weekend! There was shopping, dining out at Axel's Bonfire, movies, winning $70 at Mystic Lake, ridiculous gifts, and amazing time with our family and friends! Then to top it off, we are finally painting our house!! We (well mostly Nick) just finished the bathroom today and it makes me so happy! Seriously can't think of a time I have been this happy with everything in life! Feeling so blessed! 
Movement? YES! I can finally feel it! Sometimes Baby feels like gurgling and other times it feels like it is tickling in my tummy! It rules and I can't wait to feel it on the outside!
Food Cravings: Well, I had a weird craving for fried rice the other day. And anyone that knows me, knows I don't care for Asian food, but I guess I care for it now, because it tasted simply delicious! And my sister brought up these ridiculous cupcakes from Oh My Cupcakes, and Oh My Word, they were outrageous! They were even covered in edible glitter! But now that they are gone, I want more! 
Miss Anything: Caffeine! I know, I know. It is okay to have a little, but I am overcome with guilt every time I ask for pop! And once again, I know they are probably terrible for you anyways, but I miss my 5 Hour energy shots terribly! 
Wedding Rings On or Off: On
Mood: I am happy! Rarely itchy anymore (Thanks to my sister's idea of combining Neutrogena Body Oil and Lotion. Sounds disgusting, but my skin has never felt softer!) So no complaints from this momma!
About Baby: Well this week the baby is about 11 ounces and 7 inches long (the length of a large banana!) It can also suck on it's thumb and yawn! 
Pictures: Well Lily's birthday was on Sunday (February 19th) and mine was today! So we celebrated with birthday crowns, a puppy grooming session, painting the bathroom, and dessert (Doggie Oreos and the Last Birthday Cupcake...sad moment). Now it is time for Bachelor, Blankets, and cuddling!

We are having a....

How far Along: 5 Months! Halfway and Feeling Good! (2/13/2012)
Maternity Clothes: I am starting to fall in love! These clothes are the most comfortable things EVER! Since it is acceptable for guys to wear baggy jeans all the time, I think it should be acceptable for women to wear elastic pants all the time! I am still wearing a lot of my favorite jeans and pants, but just adding that belly band and Voila! I am in comfort land!
Stretch Marks: No and I will continue to cake on my Belly Butter so this doesn't happen!
Sleep: Well, I am fairly certain I will never sleep normal again. Poor Nickolas is such a light sleeper and every time I wake up to readjust, go to the bathroom, or complain, he wakes up right along with me. Lucky guy!
Best Moment This Week: We got to see Baby R last week (February 6th)! It was amazing and I was far too emotional! I just had no idea that that little baby was moving soooo much inside of me! The poor lady had a tough time getting pictures because baby was moving so much! It was incredible! This was the appointment where we could have found out what Baby R was. And....we decided to keep it a SECRET! Come on everyone, you know it will be much more fun that way!
Missing Anything: Well, not right now, since I can still have chocolate so I am not missing out on much this Valentine's Day! I got my hubby, my chocolate, and my body lotion! What more could a girl ask for!?
Looking Forward to: This weekend! My family and friends are coming up for my birthday! It will be great seeing everyone and being able to spend time with them for a whole weekend! 
Pictures: The picture were the best ones I could get from our ultrasound! But my favorite is the one where Baby is sucking it's thumb! I will admit I was a huge thumb sucker when I was younger so it was amazing to see it already it taking on my characteristics! Lucky baby! :)
