So about four weeks ago we went to our original gender appointment, and anatomy ultrasound! Unfortunately the tech couldn’t get a good picture of the baby, and wanted us to wait a few more weeks after the baby had grown a little more!
Side note: crazy how quickly they grow in just 4 weeks!
We were sad, but happy to know the baby was healthy, and doing great!
Fast forward to yesterday, our new appointment. It didn’t take her a minute to tell us the gender, she immediately said “it’s a girl!” ..and then came the tears! It was one of the happiest moments of my life! This whole pregnancy I’ve had this feeling she was a girl, I guess the mommy instincts really kicked in early! We haven’t decided a name yet, but cannot wait to share when we do!
How far along: 21 weeks
Total Weight Gain: 9-10 pounds, seems to fluctuate some.
Maternity Clothes: yeah, some! Mostly pants & a lot of oversized non maternity.
Best Moment this Week: Finding out that we are having a baby girl!!
Gender : girl.
Movement: a little during the day, but mostly at night and in the morning. It’s 7 AM, and I can feel her squirming around.
Food Cravings: cooked sushi, grapes, tomatoes, avocados, and mashed potatoes.
Food aversions: heavy meals & sweets.
What I Miss: regular pants, and energy. I get tired so easily.
