21 weeks {a pregnancy update}

How Far Along: 21 weeks, 3 days
Size of baby: 8 inches long, 1 pound. About the size of a spaghetti squash.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 10 pounds.
 Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes.
Gender: It's a BOY! We're naming him Tyler Paul.
Movement: He moves A. LOT. His favorite times to move are when I wake up in the morning and right before I go to bed.
Sleep: I've been exceptionally tired this past week, even despite getting pretty good naps and night time sleep. I think that as I near the 3rd trimester that my energy just zaps.
Symptoms: I have to drink LOTS (over 100 oz) of water a day or I get braxton hicks. I've also had some round ligament pains this past week. Those are always fun :/
What I miss: I miss being my normal size. Turning in bed is not easy, and so I miss the ease of movement that comes when you aren't carrying a basketball in your belly. I miss consistent sleep.
Cravings: Mexican food.
Food Aversions: nada.
Best Moment this week: Brayden felt him move earlier this week. That was really fun. I love that he's old enough to really understand that we're having a baby.
What I am looking forward to: Not much going on this next week, so I'm hoping that things stay low key.
