Prego Journal: Week 21

How far along: 21 Weeks
How big is baby:  Banana 
Total weight gain: +8 lbs. According to my weight gain app, right on track 
Maternity clothes: Still the same
Sleep: I've been sleeping pretty well.  Still wake up occasionally to go to the bathroom, but there has been far less tossing and turning.  Oh also, there's a small step in our master bedroom on the way to the bathroom that I have almost wiped out on in the middle of the night more than once.  I usually remember it's there just before stepping down; but one night I completely forgot and was going full speed when I stepped off into an unpacked bag.  There was some serious trip/fall/tumble potential.  Luckily earlier that day I had said a prayer asking my guardian angel to focus its attention on protecting Iggy throughout my pregnancy...I'm 95% positive my angel caught me in that moment to make sure Iggy stayed safe.         
Best moment(s) of the week: 
Just living in our house has been awesome.  I love home-ownership!
We also went to Houston this weekend, though it was a short trip we got to see Jason's dad whom we haven't seen since finding out about Iggy so that was nice.  Jason, his mom, and I also went to Zeigenbock Fest and listened to some good ole Texas Country music.  
Food cravings: Nothing out of the ordinary.  I've been enjoying fresh veggies more and more. 
Food aversions: Yup, sweets
Symptoms: Still feeling tired; hunger; I threw up again on Sunday...I've decided I throw up now whenever I wait too long to eat between meals and drink too much water; occasional tummy aches; a general heavy feeling in my belly...okay that may not be a symptom, more of a fact of pregnancy, but sometimes it gets pretty uncomfortable. 
Movement: Iggy did a few dances this week in my belly.  The little kicks are so sweet :)  
Gender: We find out so soon!! But I probably won't make a facebook/public post until after next Monday.  I'm going to be doing a gender reveal cake at Girl's Night and don't want to ruin the surprise. 
What I’m looking forward to:   Seeing Iggy again!  It's been so long since our last ultrasound I can't wait to see all the growth that's occurred   Also I can't wait to find out the gender.  Also also there's a possibility our newest Newlywed friends are going to come to Dallas for the weekend and we'll get to see them!     
What I miss: being able to use my abdominal muscles the same way I used to.  You don't realize how involved your abs are in everything until their ability to do work has been diminished.   
Next appt: Oct. 10th!
Workout/Fitness: A few walks/slow jogs here and there.
