21 weeks

How far along? 21w4d
Due date: August 30th, 2014
Baby is the size of a... carrot, length-wise!
Baby's development of the week: Per Babycenter: Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long. You may soon feel like she's practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now.
Maternity clothes? All bottoms, most maternity shirts. I've been living in plenty of long tank-tops or less than non-maternity stylish t-shirts that I can get away with still for the time being.
Sleep: Ugh, sleep isn't my friend these days. It's already getting harder and harder to get comfortable (and stay comfortable). I either wake up miserable or having to go to the bathroom -- both several times per night.
Best moment this week: Watching Ethan have a blast on Easter. The holidays are getting even more fun the older he gets and the more he really "gets" things. He loved coloring eggs and was so excited that the Easter Bunny paid him a visit.
Food cravings: Still with my cereal and ice cold milk kick. On occasion, anything salty sounds delicious -- especially ketchup, which is gross (and weird).
Food aversions: No real aversions, but I've noticed I crave sweets a whole lot less this pregnancy. Ice cream doesn't even sound good on most days whereas I was living on vanilla shakes last go 'round. I've turned down ice cream each time I've been asked if I want any lately -- sort of bizarre.
Baby's Sex: She's a girl!
Baby's Name: Is finally finalized and still a secret until she's born! I love hearing Ethan say it.
