21 Weeks.

How far along: 21 weeks, 6 days
Maternity clothes: Yes just a few shirts, tank tops, and a pair of capris... I can still {snugly} fit into my regular jeans with the help of my little friend called "the hair tie" 
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleep has been amazing... on my days off of work I usually have 1 "sleep catch up day" where I sleep 12-15 hours. It's fantastic minus the crazy pregnancy dreams I've been having! I'm not a fan- they've either been totally x-rated or just plain scary. This week I had a dream I was a prego secret agent with a license to kill (totally cool) but that this guy was trying to kill my friends. When I'd shoot him, he wouldn't die- I put 50 rounds into this homie but it would only knock him out for a second! Apparently he was a zombie & every time I would shoot him, he'd get uglier and scarier. Then someone told me in order for him to die, his uterus would have to die... Ummm, what? Weird prego dreams...
Best moment this week: Buying a baby crib from my sweet friend & getting to visit with her! Love ya Chelsea!
Miss anything: Crossfit workouts with my best friend. We use to have intense crossfit dates in the morning before we both got prego.
Morning sickness:  None
Movement: Yes! When people say its the best part- it really is... One morning I was laying in bed & I felt some pressure at the top of my stomach- it was totally a little elbow or foot pushing out! So I took my thumb and pushed back gently and she moved it! It was amazing. It just made it more "real"
Food cravings: This week I've been craving cereal, fruit, and Thai food! We found this amazing little Thai place the other day. Best.Food.Ever.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Frozen dinners and anything else that can be microwaved
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Gender prediction: A little lady. Still deciding for sure on a name...
Labor signs: No  {and when I can actually say yes to this, I will so be freaking out}
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy with a side a moody sometimes
Looking forward to: Sewing the baby bedding with  my mom! 

Last week we went in for a full ultrasound where they took measurements, pictures, and listened to her little heartbeat. Here's a few pictures of the little sweetness:

{her little foot}

{her arms & hands. her hands were crossed- 
amazing you can see the bones in her hands}

{it's definitely a girl!}

{i feel like 3d pictures always sort of look a little alien... 
but here is part of her face & arm}

YAY! I love the pics! So fun and exciting. Movement really is the best. And keep up the hair tie trick as long as you can... you end up hating the prego pants in the end :)

Thanks Monica! Funny because my mom said the same thing about maternity pants! I'm definitely trying to hold out as long as I can :)
