HOW FAR ALONG- 21 weeks 5 days

SIZE OF BABY- 10.5 inches and 12.7 oz

MATERNITY CLOTHES?- i've been doing a lot of non-maternity leggings this week. i found a few uber comfy pairs and i now don't want to wear anything else. and don't tell anyone... but i've even fallen victim to the jegging! luckily i have the pregnancy excuse.

STRETCH MARKS?- none yet, and i will keep lathering up with lotion to help keep it that way!

SLEEP?- i've been doing a lot of tossing and turning this past week, but i always fall right back to sleep, so i'm not complaining just yet.

FEELING ANY MOVEMENTS?- penny is really hitting her stride this past week. she gives some really good jabs and upper cuts to my inners. i love it! it feels like popcorn popping in my belly. evan finally got to feel her kick last week too. i'm so excited to be able to share that with him now because for weeks only i could feel it and it's so amazing that it must be shared!

ANY CRAVINGS?- oh boy, yesterday i do believe i had my first really preggo craving. i convinced evan (let me just say that it didn't take much work) that it would be a great idea for us to have chocolate milkshakes for dinner. he obviously agreed, so we got ourselves some soy delicious chocolate ice cream, and topped them off with some soy whip whipped cream. it was vegan heaven!

ANY FOOD AVERSIONS?- still can't eat brocolli

VISIBLE BUMP?- oh yes yes! finally it's a real baby belly. i've even started to experience people reaching out and rubbing it without warning. we'll see how quickly that loses it's charm :)


STILL WEARING RINGS?- yup, so far so good!

BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK- that milkshake is right up there, but another favorite moment was taking a nap a few days ago while playing some music to my belly for penny. she kicked a bit at first and then fell right asleep with me. heart... melt!

WORST MOMENT OF THE WEEK- it was totally not pregnancy related, but our shed was broken into friday night! 5 or so other houses on our block were hit as well. it was a real bummer, but luckily they didn't really get anything from us. just having people creeping around our backyard while we slept totally freaked me out a bit. bastards!
