Of course I am behind on monthly chalkboards, so for now I thought I would do a little 21 week bump update! This pregnancy seems to be flying by, most likely because of the two busy little bees that I am always trying to keep up with. Here’s what’s happening with the belly.
How far along: 21 weeks
Weight gain: 12 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Wearing my maternity leggings a ton still because it is so damn cold here & lots of drapey tunics like the one above. Asos Maternity has tons of cute new dresses & off the shoulder tops that I have been loving as well. Harper always wants to play dress-up in my closet & wants me to put on dresses every day, it is making me long for warm weather so I can actually wear them with her! She loves to tell me that my belly looks like a basketball or poke me in the belly button & then talk to the baby like it is an intercom system.
Sleep: Sleep is still good, I am usually so exhausted at the end of the day that I can almost fall asleep while brushing my teeth. I sleep like a rock until the girls wake me with air horns at the crack of dawn.
Best moment this month: Doing lots of fun things with our family of four (before we add one more!) and having healthy ultrasounds/doctors appointments.
Worst moment this month: Getting sick & having sick kids. It’s so stressful & overwhelming to have sick kiddos, especially while you’re down & out yourself. Counting down the days until we can open the windows for a few days to get some fresh air in the house!
Miss anything: Sunshine, sleeping in & adult beverages. But I guess not all of that is pregnancy related.
Movement: Finally started feeling movement around 18+ weeks or so. Now we have full somersault type movements & Brandon can feel the baby kicking.
Cravings: Sushi, apples, strawberries, cereal, fountain coke & cucumbers.
Queasy or sick: Still feeling really good this pregnancy, it has been the easiest of the three so far.
Looking forward to: Nursery progress & deciding on a name, the fun stuff!!
Okay, so speaking of fun stuff! I got super excited for Easter this weekend after seeing some of the cute new things that Target has on their shelves, I am loving all of these fun colors & couldn’t wait to share a few of the things I got!! This felt + gold Happy Easter pennant banner is PERFECT for Spring, I love the colors & material so much!!! I also grabbed a fun little Easter egg hunt kit with little directional signs for the yard & a cute plastic table cloth for making Easter crafts. And of course, the newest flavor of my favorite popcorn & a cute peep lollipop, which would be so fun to use with the magic Easter jellybeans!!! 😉 If you haven’t already hit up Target for some of these goodies, you have lots to look forward to on your next trip!
Lots of more fun Easter stuff to share this week, hope you all have a happy Monday!!! XO16
