21 Weeks!

Our baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. (According to the ultrasound tech the baby is actually 15 oz.) I am starting to feel like he's practicing martial arts as his initial fluttering movements are turning into full-fledged kicks and nudges. I am also discovering a pattern to his activity as I am getting to know him better. He is most active after I eat a meal, or sugar. In other developments, my baby's eyebrows and lids are present now.

My weight is starting to slowly climb back up to my beginning weight, probably because I have a massive baby growing inside me. I am also starting to get more hungry more often. I will eat a full meal and stuff my self silly and a hour later I will be starving again. No weird cravings yet if anything it is sugar; candy and root beer!

Gordon and I went to Babies R Us today and registered. Wow, it was really overwhelming! I was so exhausted and I can't believe how much stuff little babies need. Where the heck am I going to put all of it??
As you can see from the picture, the baby bump is in full swing!

Did you guess the gender correctly?


  1. You look beautiful mama Sara! I love that the bump is really starting to show! Are you so excited? I am going to check out your registry right now. Did you register for that adorable Kenneth Cole baby blazer? Love you!

  2. I agree with Lindsay! You are looking so beautiful! Congrats on finding out that you are having a boy... I bet daddy is ready to put the football pads on him already :) Hope you are feeling great!!!!
