baby #3: 21 weeks

21weeksBaby’s size: 10.5 inches long and almost 3/4 of a pound! Apparently, the same size as a baseball cap.
Maternity clothes?:
I did wear one of my smaller maternity shirts this week, just to see how it fit. It wasn’t ridiculously large, but I still have some room to grow into it. I’m still wearing my non-maternity shorts, but my belly is getting big enough that if I’m not paying attention, my shorts are sliding down and my shirt is riding up… 
Our third little princess!
Nothing really, but I’m still nursing Kaelyn, and that is starting to feel a little uncomfortable.
Sleep has been sporadic this week… partly because Michael has been up late working on a project, and I try to wait up with him, and partly just because I seem to keep having nightmares about her coming too early.
It’s official- this baby is CRAZY! She seriously spends most of the day kickboxing in there. I can clearly feel fists and feet flailing and have already seen my belly shaking from the outside. Also, I finally felt her kick my hand on the outside!
Chocolate-chip cookies, Nutella, donuts.
What I miss:
Not necessarily pregnancy-related, but with 90-degree temperatures, I’m missing having pool access in our old neighborhood.
Anything making you queasy or sick?:
I’ve had a few nauseous moments this weak, but nothing debilitating.
Belly Button in or out?: In.
Exercising?: Ran 24.2 miles, walked 4.1 miles with the kids. Fitbit step total: 92,170. I’m really feeling great, without any sort of hip pain so far, so I’ve been taking advantage of this absolutely perfect weather. My pace isn’t fast, but I’m getting it done, and that is good enough for me right now.IMG_20160604_100100Mood: I’m really falling more and more in love with this little girl with every little wiggle and kick that she makes. It has been a very busy week though, so honestly, my stress level has been up, and I know it won’t go down until I get things checked off of my to-do list.
Best moment this week: Hearing that my friend Brittany had her baby girl! I only wish they still lived closer!
Looking forward to:
I’m really excited (and almost feeling impatient) to meet our little girl now that Brittany had her baby. I just want her to be here already so I can cuddle and kiss her!
Big sisters:
Kaya wanted to get in a picture with me this week! She loves the baby, tells her she’s “so cute”, and kisses my belly. I asked Kaelyn if there is a baby in mommy’s tummy this week, and she clearly said “no”! Haha. I think she’s in for a surprise in a few months._MG_3005Comparison: 21 weeks with Kaya; 21 weeks with Kaelyn
