21 Weeks

So I am totally behind on my weekly updates. I will do week 21 today and week 22 tomorrow! :) Then I will be all caught up. 

How far along? 21 Weeks

How big are babies? Fun fact- 
A 21 week old baby is a fully developed child that lacks the lung maturity to live outside the womb. From this point the child only needs to gain weight and lung maturity to be born. He is the size of a carrot. My sister and I went to the doctors this week and his heart rate is 140. 

Weight gain? I finally started gaining serious weight. It was the first doctors appointment that I had gained any weight. 6 whole pounds. That is a good sign that the baby is healthy and growing.. and so is my belly! 

Strech marks? Not yet. I have been applying the belly butter. 

Maternity Clothes? Not yet. I am still wearing sun dresses. They seem to work well. I don't want to wear maternity clothes till I absolutely have to.

Sleep? I am feeling lots of baby movement when I lay down to sleep. It doesn't keep me up but I usually try to stay up and wake Erik so he can feel it too. 

Best moment of the week? Going to the doctors and having a great check up and hearing his little heart beat. It is amazing to hear his little heart. 

Food Cravings? I had a lot of sorbet this week. Not craving anything specific but I still have a great sweet tooth. 

Gender? Baby BOY!!!

Movement? He moves quite a bit! Especially at night. 

What I miss? Wake-boarding and playing catch. I am afraid to do anything too physical. So I will have to wait till next summer to play. 

Belly Button? Innie

What I am looking forward to? Living in our new home! 

Milestone? Both Dad's painted the rooms upstairs in the new house. Baby H has a baby blue room. Still determining how I want to decorate but it is fun to see the baby's room! 


  1. Yay!! I love your cute little belly! it's like a little basketball!

  2. You look so cute with that little tummy (donut) Jaime! I'm so lots of ideas of things I'm going to make for Harper! :)

  3. Love the "baby bump."

    I agree with you about the maternity clothes...stay out of them as long as you can. The only items you can find that look decent cost a small fortune. Plus, sun dresses work really well! Cute, too! :)

  4. You are too cute! I wish I looked this cute pregnant.

  5. You are so cute! Love the tiny belly!
