How Far Along: 21 weeks. 2nd trimester!
Size of the Baby: Carrot, 10.5 inches long. 13 oz (that is what he was last week!).  (going off the Babycenter app)
Maternity Clothes: I got a pair of jean capris from Motherhood Maternity that are pretty cute. They have a demi band and I hope they will still work when I get much larger. They are comfy and cute! I also got a few tops from Ann Taylor Loft Maternity which are very cute! I got some maternity jeans from Gap that are very nice but stretch out a ton...wish they didn't stretch out that much. I wonder if I should have tried on a smaller size! Hmmm, also got some tan capris from Old Navy...I basically just need bottoms...maybe a swimsuit...
Stretch marks: Nope.
Weight gain/loss: 11 lbs?
Sleep: So on Monday, I woke up in the middle of the night to use the restroom and my whole right leg was asleep from the hip down. I got up and I felt like a pirate with a peg leg as I walked across the room. It was VERY painful! Anyways, I woke up in the morning and my right side around my hip and low back was killing! It was the worst it had ever been. I tried to just ignore it but it hurt so bad to walk and move in general. Then I got very hot and didn't feel good and I got sick. Sadly it was the 1st time I did this whole pregnancy! But I can't complain because some people throw up their whole pregnancy! I feel so bad for them. Anyways, I called the nurse and she said actually they wanted me to come in. I went to the doctor and I had to do a pee test for a bladder infection. I didn't have one and then I spoke with my obgyn. She wanted to make sure I didn't have a blood clot which I also didn't have. Basically the symptoms I told them made them worry but all in all, I'm now fine. I had a sciatica (pinched nerve), round ligament pain, and of course the back pain I get often...so fun stuff! We then worked on my insurance to see if I could get more visits to the physical therapist and sadly my insurance is not giving me any. So I have 3 more physical therapy visits for the rest of the year...I hope I will be okay!!! Ahhh...so frustrating.
Best Moment of the Week: Feeling baby moving!
Movement: He is moving around a lot now and I love it! :D
Symptoms: Just bad back pain this week! Oh, and my hands seemed to swell a little in Kansas City? My wedding ring seemed a little tighter but I think it is back to normal. Humidity, hot weather, and exercising can make you swell more - at least I read that online.

Food Cravings: Mexican!
Gender: BOY!!!
Belly Button in or out: In.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Bad back pain haha.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Wedding ring on or off: On.
What I miss: Being able to workout harder.
What I am looking forward to: Tomorrow because we have our 2nd ultrasound thanks to our little boy being stubborn and not letting us get all the pictures/measurements we needed a week and a half ago, haha :) So excited to see him again!!!
Nursery: In progress...will be looking at cribs soon, bedding, paint colors, etc :)
Emotions: Alright.
Stupid things I have done: Not sure.
