Bumpdate Week 21


How Far Along: 21 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 4 pounds. Will weigh again the next time I go to the doctor. I can tell I am growing, though. I was starving all day today!

Gender: It’s a girl!

Movement: She’s still moving lots when I eat. She also moves most (where I can feel it) if I am laying down watching tv or going to sleep. I can feel her more now when I am standing.

Sleep: This week was an improvement. I still get up at least once a night to go the bathroom, but that’s normal.

Maternity Clothes: Still none yet. I had to laugh because I bought some shorts in a smaller size in April thinking that they would fit all summer. What in the WORLD was I thinking? I tried them on yesterday and they were a bit snug (to say the least), so I bought a Bella Band today.

Symptoms: I swear my veins are sticking out more this week. Increased blood flow maybe? Also, my lower back was hurting me a bit today. May be completely unrelated to baby, though.

Aversions: Fried food. Thank goodness!

Cravings: Sweets!! Tommy and I split a Hey Batter, Batter Blast yesterday and it was good for the first 10 bites, then I had to stop because it was too sweet. So I guess I am not too obsessed with them.

I also would love some Key Lime Pie or a Lemon Square. Tart apparently sounds good.

What I am most looking forward to: I have been looking for furniture and d├ęcor for her room, so that has been fun!

Best Moment this week: We cleaned out her closet and moved all of her little things that we have purchased or received for gifts to her new space. We also got a new car for me. I had my 2-door Honda for 11 years, so it was a little bittersweet, but I definitely have way more room for baby in my new one! (Another Honda – a Pilot this time.) Also, so grateful for a three day weekend to get stuff done, spend time with Tommy and sleep in! (And, of course, grateful for our troops, which goes without saying.)

In non-baby news, Carter went on several walks with Gracie (my mom’s dog), so that was definitely a highlight this week.


  1. Glad to hear all the latest developments!! Congratulations on the new car!! Very nice!! I can't wait to see decor for the room!!
    Love, Aunt Angie

  2. Wow Katie!!! A new car how exciting!!! I felt the same way, maybe a little more bitter then sweet, when I got rid of my Honda. My upgrade was hardly as exciting. I'm dying to know if anyone that doesnt know you are pregnant had commented on being pregnant (random store clerk or someone). I always thought that was a fun thing.

  3. Yay for a new car!! How exciting! You are looking so cute, too Kate! Your little bump is too, too precious! Can't wait to see the nursery and all the swag you have been collecting for the sweet girl. Girl stuff is so freaking adorable, I don't know how people don't totally go nuts.....and teeny, tiny adorable girl stuff with your love of miniatures....you must be in heaven!

    Glad sweet Carter is starting to explore to world a little with Gracie. Give that pup a kiss for me!


  4. How fun- a new car! You look adorable. Glad you're feeling good and that Carter is getting out a bit.

  5. Yeah for new cars! I too went car shopping this weekend - we thought my convertible wouldn't be very practical for the baby.. ;-)
    Happy to hear that Carter is getting out some...
    Oh and you look great!

  6. Yay for a new car! I'm loving the new mini size blasts at Sonic. Their other sizes are ridiculously big.
