Weekly Check-In:21 Weeks!!!

Weekly Check-In

How far along?
21 weeks 4 days- One of my favorite fruits and could not live without them!!!

Maternity clothes?



Sleep is not the same. The charlie horses are happening at least twice a week. Ive learned some tricks to get them to stop before they go full on.

Best moment this week?

People actually noticing Im pregnant now. Im one of those people that doesn't mind my belly rubbed. At first I thought I wouldn't but seeing the smile on there face makes me happy so why not!!! Here is my recent picture from this past Friday at 21 weeks 2 days:

Ive really popped in the last two weeks!

Food cravings:

Well Paleo isnt going good for me. I think Im just gonna make good choices for the most part. My last craving was due to seeing a picture of someone eating a piece of chocolate chip cookie cake with icing on it. I let the craving linger on for 3 days and couldnt handle it anymore and went to Nestle Tollhouse Cookie Place and got a slice. Oh man it was perfect!! And of course it made me feel awful. So I got on the treadmill and walked for 30 mins on a slight incline with 3lb dumbells. Made me feel better!!

Boy!!!! Miles Jackson

Belly button in or out?



The movements are stonger for sure. Now when he moves I will talk to him. I love waking up in the morning and feel my belly because he is moving like crazy. We have been playing him music by headphones to my belly. He really likes it I think. John plays him all kinds of music some I dont even know what it is. He will kick the headphones sometimes. Its so dang cute!
What I miss?

Sleeping for a straight 8 hours without waking up. Think that is over for a very very long time.

What I'm looking forward to:

Going to the doctor tomorrow and hearing everything looks great!! Then to go to the fair and eat some bad stuff!!! Miles wants some too!


The next milestone I cant wait to get over is VDAY! Being 24 weeks and knowing that if something happens the baby will be ok!

Also wanted to share a box I got in the mail from the best online friend that I met on the bump. She is 26-27 weeks pregnant right now and they are team green!! Im so over joyed for her and her husband. Once we found out that we were having a boy she send me this:
