21 Weeks

I am in absolute disbelief that this pregnancy is half way over. It has flown by! Each new week creeps up on me and I just never thought I'd be at this point.

I'm 21 weeks now. Still throwing up but not as often as before. This is a belly shot as of this morning. I don't know how much longer till I'll have to buy maternity clothes but I hate shopping so I'm putting it off as long as possible and just surviving with my belly band.


I had my first official ultrasound on Tuesday this week and every time I see this little girl I can't believe how big she is getting. Right now she should be about three quarters of a pound and 10 and a half inches long. That is just crazy for me to think about!


This picture shows just how squished she is in there. She folded herself right in half! Good thing babies are flexible...

I am a little obsessed with her feet and love seeing them on ultrasound. The last time we measured them they were only like a centimeter long and now they are about 3 and a half centimeters long. I love it!


I feel her kick every day now and I love love love this picture that shows those adorable little legs and feet that I can feel now. We are both so excited for the kicks to be strong enough for Brandon to feel them too.


Brandon and I feel so blessed to finally be experiencing this and are so excited for our little girl to arrive. We should probably get on the ball soon and start buying stuff for her. We do have some outfits and headbands that people have given us. Oh, and 2 coloring books that my cute nephew Kai gave to my baby "for when she gets big." He is so sweet.
PS. If anyone reading this is the mysterious person who left a cute headband on our door handle, THANK YOU!

Steph, I am getting so excited to meet her, but she needs to cook longer. Why did I move, cuz we could have had play dates with our cute girls. I will just have to make a few trips!! Miss ya

Amanda&Wade said...

LOVE it!! So fun, I am way excited for you to be a mommy!! Girls are so so so much fun!! Oh I wouldn't buy too much, because you will get a TON of stuff at your showers! Then you will wonder why you even bothered.. after the showers you can go buy the stuff you didn't get... But it's easier said then done... second I find out I'm preggo I run out to buy stuff!! It's just so fun! Oh and I second that buying maternity clothes.. hated it, I wore my bella band til I was 37 weeks! haha!!

You look so cute and just have that pregnant glow. What is the deal with a shower? Do you have people throwing them for you already? I would love to throw one for you if you need me to. If not, I want an invitation to one. I agree that girls are so much fun. Not that I would know any differently. I love the ultrasound pictures too. Feet are cute. I have always had a little obsession with them.

Dustin and Sara said...

You hardly look pregnant. I loved feeling those little kicks inside me. I think Dustin could feel them around 25 weeks, so Brandon can look forward to that!

Dustin and Sara said...

P.S. I'm in town all week if you want to get together :)

Joanna said...

You look so good! I hate maternity clothes, so I still haven't put any on this pregnancy. I think one more week and I will have to :D
I always think the 2nd trimester flies by the fastest, so be prepared for the final weeks to be here before you know it. Good luck, I am so happy for you and Brandon.

I have to giggle at your ultrasound pics. My guy was totally stretched out and asleep for our ultrasound he was at a 90 degree angle with his legs streched out. She must know to give you some space :)

Michelle said...

Wow! What amazing photos of your adorable little girl. I also remember loving every detail. I would watch my ultrasound video over and over. It somehow helped me to connect more when I could actually see the movement instead of just feeling it. Your belly is so cute and tiny- it reminds me of when I was pregnant! We are so excited for you guys!

melanie said...

Umm...totally didn't know you were pregnant. Not to mention I lost my blog links a while back. So here I am again, getting caught up.

CONGRATS! OMGosh I'm so excited for you. I had no idea what I was missing. I'm really happy for you guys and how far/long it's taken, it's so worth it.

I hope you get into shopping because it's just so adorable how much cute stuff is out there. Send me your address please :)

Steph,
I love her little profile. She is going to be a doll. I can't stand that I'm not there. Love, MOM
