Pregnancy Update – Week 21

Size of Baby (per “What To Expect”) – Size of an cantaloupe

Weight Gain – 12 pounds. Still averaging about a pound a week.

Movement – Still just little kicks. No problem.

Sleep – Sleeping well. I have a tendency to spread out/take over the entire bed (regardless of if my husband is in there or not). Sorry!

What I miss – This is a tough one. I really can’t say much. What did I miss while I was on my trip? I missed seeing my daughter and my husband. Thank goodness they kept the pictures coming. I owe my parents big time for taking the time to come down to Charlotte while I was gone to help shuttle my daughter around. I don’t know who had more fun – Madison or grandma/grandpa.

Best Moments this Week – Did you see my post about the bachelorette? If you didn’t check it out. I am not surprised that I had a good time, but I didn’t anticipate just falling in love with all of the other girls. I had not planned to go to the wedding (since I am due only a few weeks after), but maybe I need to make the trek. Somehow I need to find a way to reunite with these ladies again!


Looking forward to – LB’s next doctor visit! So what does LB mean? My husband and I’s affectionate term for each other is boo. When we got married we were the boos. When I got pregnant with baby number one, she was baby boo (BB). As such, I was mama boo (MB) and he was papa boo (PB). Baby number two, clearly can’t be BB, so I coined her little boo (LB). 22 week in-office consultation is Tuesday. I will keep you posted. No ultrasound this week.

Cravings – Steak? Kidding. My sister-in-law Colleen has been in Germany for over 100 days now doing a secondment for work (she has her own blog – check it out!). Apparently, good beef is scarce there. When asked where she wanted to go for her “fancy” dinner in Key West, her response was “somewhere with filets”. I followed suit and ordered a steak with her. I finished off my meal with a German Chocolate Cake double scoop waffle cone – in tribute of her of course. For almost $8, I got a 2 pound cone that literally had chunks of chocolate cake and coconut flakes in it. I could eat this every night. Craving satisfied (for both of us).


Symptoms – Pregnancy congestion. Yes, it is still there. I am not coughing as much as I was the week before, but I still have A LOT of clear nasal discharge.

Workouts – Lots of cardio this week. Not much strength. I will be feeling the effects of that when I pick up the weights again this week. I subbed a Flywheel class before I left and I snuck in two beach runs. Who wants to be inside doing weights when it is so beautiful out (and I wasn’t pressed for time)?
