21 weeks with Cheney

How far along?: 21 weeks

How big is your baby?: the size of a small cantaloupe! That seems big!
Total weight gain: up 4lbs as of my last appointment--find out again next Monday!

Sex: sweet baby GIRL!
Maternity clothes: obviously! I just bought a bunch of work out capris & maxi skirts yesterday. This will be the summer of comfort!
  Sleep: I am still sleeping pretty good other than having to switch sides all night because my hips hurt.
Symptoms: WELL, that's interesting. I was shaving my legs last week and nearly had a panic attack because a vein on the back of my right leg is OUT OF CONTROL huge. Not just a spider vein, but sister girl must be sitting on a vessel and this vein looks like it may explode. It's so bad I will not be wearing shorts this summer in the 110 degree heat...that's serious, y'all. Not only is it hideous but now it's uncomfortable. I'll be asking the OB about it on Monday.
Movement: yes! This past week I finally felt some very tiny flutters. I was actually painting my nails yesterday and felt a bunch of consistent kicks. I will never get over that feeling--it's just the best!
Best moment this week: I brought home a lot of sweet baby girl clothes from Louisiana this week! Very thankful for cousins who pass down their baby clothes! We also got the bedding yesterday! I went with something very simple & I can't wait to get started on the nursery soon.
Food cravings: nothing new!

Belly button in or out: in.
What I miss: normal veins?? haha
What I'm looking forward to: The boys bedroom has been switched but we haven't moved Griff in yet. I am ready to get it over with...just hope it is an easy transition!

Oh you look great! I started seeing a Chiropractor a few weeks ago and I can't say enough positive things! My lower back and hips feel SO much better!
