Bumpdate: Week 21
Total weight gain: 8-9 pounds
Maternity clothes: I purchased a few more Liz Lange tanks from Target for layering and a large cowl necked sweater. Otherwise I'm trying to hold out for Black Friday deals. I'm really need pants though, we have to do a lot of washing to make sure I have clothes for the entire week.
Nursery: We have moved everything out of the spare room except the large pieces of furniture. Woot! Uh, now we just have to organize it into a functional bedroom/office upstairs. We have the layout and we both have an idea of the items we need to purchase. I made a few photo frames this week too - Pinterest inspiration.
Sleep: Sometimes. I nap fairly well. There are nights that take forever to fall asleep and some times I wake up and play on my phone in the middle of the night until I'm drowsy.
What I miss: Sleeping on my back.
Cravings: Peanut M&Ms. Orange juice. Trident cinnamon gum- this is a biggie.
Other symptoms: I've had some short of breath, especially if I eat a large meal. Some mild back pain, especially if I've been walking most of the day. My bras are getting too tight and I've warned R that a shopping trip may be in order in a few weeks. I don't want to buy too many though as I've heard your size can vary quite a bit in the final trimester and while nursing.
Best moments so far: Feeling her move! Lots of flutters and little kicks (usually to my bladder). I feel more when I'm laying down on my side. R's company had a banquet to recognize individuals who have performed well this year and they gave out a ton of awards - we were able to travel to Charlotte for the night and it was a blast. The dinner itself was yummy and we spent the entire next day shopping for our girl. Oh yes and we call her by her name now.
