Week 21

Dear Ellison,

You are 21 weeks old now!  You should be weighing in at about 12 ounces and should be just about 10 1/2 inches from head to heel.  You're just about as long as a carrot.  :-)  You now have eyebrows and eye lids.  You're digestive system is in full swing and your teeny tiny ovaries are filled with about 6 million eggs! Here are the little details of the week.

How Far Along? Twenty One Weeks...133 days to go!

Weight Gain?  Still at about 8 pounds.

Sleep? Sleep is great still!

Miss Anything?  Real sushi!  Barrett and I went out to grab dinner this week and I wanted to go get some sushi.  It's just not the same when it's all cooked and fried and not fresh and delicious!  I have already placed my order with Barrett for my favorite rolls after baby is born!

Movement?  Oh yes!  On Thursday night, at 20 weeks and 4 days, I felt her for the first time!  It was the happiest little flutter!  I've felt her everyday since.  She gets pretty active when I start to get hungry and also right after I eat.  It is really such an amazing feeling!  I can not wait for Barrett to be able to feel her too!

Food Cravings?  I've been really wanting lots of fruits and veggies lately.  I am SO ready for summer produce to get into full swing!

Any Aversions?  Oh...you know...just poor eggs still.

Gender? It's a GIRL ~ Ellison Gray.

Symptoms?  I've noticed myself getting out of breath a little easier lately.  I don't really have to do anything strenous...just normal walking/talking/moving will do it to me these days.  I guess my lungs are starting to get a little crowded out!

Best Moment this Week?  Feeling her move!  Really...pretty indescribable.  We also got our french doors installed in the new guest room and all of the furniture moved dowstairs.  Barrett's got a good bit of painting to do, but I feel like we're making big progress around here!

Looking Forward To...  Getting the nursery completely emptied out and starting to get it together.  I've got lots of ideas floating around in my head and am ready to get them started!  I am also looking forward to the mail everyday...I've been doing a little online shopping for baby girl, and it's so fun to get tiny little baby goodies in the mail!
