21 Weeks

We made it to 21 weeks! I can't believe how fast time is going now! 

How far along? 21 weeks
How big is baby? This week baby is the size of a pomegranate! I think a banana is bigger (longer) than a pomegranate, but that's ok. 
Total weight gain: Fluctuating between 9 and 10 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yep, I think I have a pretty good collection going now.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep:  I love sleeping. It's so fun. Last night in every dream I had there were Andy's Hot Fries. I am pretty sure those WILL be on the menu today :)

Best moment this week:  Nothing too exciting happened this week. We did get our carseat and stroller in the mail. We decided to go with the Britax Be Ready stroller and the Be Safe carseat. Britax was having a sale buy the stroller and get the carseat (or other eligible product) for free. We couldn't pass that deal up and we were able to get the deal on Amazon so we got the stroller for even cheaper than it was at Buy Buy Baby and BRU! I wouldn't exactly say that was the best moment this week, but it was pretty fun to get our first big baby buy out of the way! I had my monthly appointment on Wednesday and everything went well. I was handed the dreaded glucose test drink, so that's on the agenda for my next appointment in July.
Miss Anything? I'm not missing much this week. I would still love a beer with dinner. I'm making a list of beer that will be on my November beverage list. I've already told Matthew that we're getting a case of Summer Shandy before summer ends to store until November.
Movement: She moves around a lot at night now, right before I go to bed. We actually caught my stomach moving on video which was pretty fun. I think I enjoy that part more than Matthew does though.
Food cravings: Apparently I'm craving Andy's Hot Fries -- See above about my dreams!
Anything making you queasy or sick: NO!
Gender: Baby Girl Dickson!
Labor Signs: Nope!
Symptoms: I'm not having any major symptoms right now. I still get pains in my back when I am in the same position for too long. I also have a constant pulsing in my ear... I asked my doctor about it and she said it could be due to the increased blood flow. It's rather annoying.
Belly Button in or out? Innie -- some days it looks more shallow than others.

Wedding rings on or off? They are still on! They get pretty tight when I'm outside in the heat
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy!!
Looking forward to: The 4th of July!! We have lots of fun things planned for Thursday, let's hope the rain holds out! It's a 3 day work week for me this week and I seriously can't wait until Wednesday at 4pm EST. We officially have less than 3 weeks until our next ultrasound. Ok - so it's 20 days away, that's still less than 3 weeks. The countdown is on!!

Don't mind the hair today. It's humid. :) 
I can't resist posting a pic of the poodle. Hubs made an appearance in this one too!
