Pregnancy Update: 21 Weeks

How funny is it that Juneau is in every one of these photos? He is so interested in everything we do, and he is being extra cuddly lately. He is going to be a great big brother, but I worry that he may be a little too protective of Baby G! David and I laugh that it may be hard for people to come over and pick up the baby since Juneau will serve as the protector!

How Far Along: 21 weeks!

What is Baby G Up To?: Baby G is the size of a pomegranate. According to our 20 week ultrasound, Baby G is 15 ounces.

How I’m Feeling: I feel pregnant! I’m starting to feel a bit uncomfortable, especially at night. I have a body pillow that has become my best friend lately. I’m pretty exhausted all the time, too. It’s a strange thing though, because I don’t feel very big. I still have moments I have to remind myself that I’m pregnant. I am wanting to do everything I used to do – bend over, cuddle up with my feet under me, lay on my belly. I can still do most of those things, it’s just becoming a bit harder.

What I’m Wearing: I’m in full-blown pregnancy clothes. I’ve been able to find some non-maternity sweaters that fit my belly in a cute way. However, when I’m home it’s sweats and big t-shirts!

What’s On My Mind Lately: So much! I received my free breast pump in the mail over the weekend which made me start thinking about the days of being a working mom and how hectic that will be! (By the way, moms-to-be, check with your insurance and see if you qualify for a free breast pump. A friend of mine mentioned it to me, and I was able to get a $200 breast pump for nada. Such an awesome thing!) We started discussing my maternity leave and David’s time off from work in the first few weeks after the baby is born. We also started making a list of people to call when I go into labor. We’ve been starting a very preliminary search into buying a house as well. We’ve never been great “planners” so with the new year we decided that we put an emphasis on planning this year!

What I’m Craving: I didn’t think I was craving anything besides just food in general until I ate a piece of pineapple the other day. It was like I had been searching for something my entire life and I finally found it! I went to the store and bought a whole pineapple to cut up.

What I’m Looking Forward To: Getting out of January! Work has all of a sudden exploded and I have so much to do. I let my hormones get the best of me this weekend and spent a lot of time crying for no reason at all. I’m hoping that when work slows a bit, so will my emotions. Plus, February is just a better month… I turn 28 a month from today!

Best Moment of the Week: We found out the gender of our baby! Like I mentioned, we will be keeping it gender neutral on the blog since my dad doesn’t want to know. David and I went out to dinner with an envelope and our baby’s gender written on it. It was such an amazing moment! Either way we would’ve been thrilled, but knowing has made everything more real.
