It's a girl!

Duh da da dum! She’s a girl! 

We found out the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and we could not be more thrilled. All along, I have had a gut feeling that our little bun in the oven is a precious little girl. We are beyond happy and we feel incredibly blessed. 

Our little sweet pumpkin! 

We’ve been throwing names around and we are pretty much settled on a first name but are still undecided on the middle name. {But my mom has always said, you need to meet your little one and hold her in your arms before you decide 100%}. 

I found this adorable list to track some pregnancy stats:

How far along? 21 weeks.

Total weight gain: 5 pounds {finally gained my weight back that I lost in the first trimester}.

Maternity clothes? I bought one pair of maternity pants, one maternity dress, and a handful of long-sleeved cotton tees.

Stretch marks? None yet, fingers crossed!

Sleep: Tough to get comfortable at first but once I’m asleep I’ve been okay. I have woken up from some weird dreams!

Miss anything? Wine, sashimi, and smoked nova salmon.

Movement: So much! I first felt little flutters as 17 weeks and now she is doing cartwheels in there.

Food cravings: Fruit, pastries, salads, and McDonald’s.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not anymore, but the first trimester was ROUGH {pretty much ANYTHING made me nauseated}.

Sex: A sweet little girl!

Symptoms: Sore hip joints, random hip numbness, heart burn, running to the bathroom, headaches, a growing belly, congestion, itchy skin, increased appetite, and forgetfulness.

Belly button in or out? Still in and I can still wear my belly button ring.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy but easily provoked to moody {don’t poke the beast}.

Looking forward to: More movement and belly growth.

I cannot believe that I am halfway through this pregnancy. WOAH.
