21 Weeks

21 Weeks now! So I've already posted about our Ultrasound experience and not knowing what we're having. I'm actually kind of excited about this baby being a surprise. I'm still going to guess 'girl' though because that seems like a safe bet in my home.

At 21 weeks I'm definitely showing, there's no hiding this baby bump, although I'm notorious for forgetting it's there. I'm always side swiping my kids with this thing...or getting stuck in awkward places because the belly won't fit. I'm still trying to decide if I should make the full switch to maternity clothes. Most of what I wear isn't maternity...with the exception of a few pairs of sweats. But I think it's that that time...I may just need to take that leap. I really do LOVE maternity clothes, but I just hate being stuck in them for too long.

I'm still feeling good, not too sick, not sore yet etc. My blood pressure is CRAZY low though, and I find I'm constantly dizzy, lightheaded and exhausted! I feel like I'm being drugged...that's how tired I am. It could also be due to the fact that I'm actually really busy. I have two little kids to take care of, I teach a million piano students and I have a busy calling at church.

We haven't really started preparing for this baby in any way (I still have a little more then 4 months so it's no rush). But we did set up the toddler bed in Hailey's room with the hope that Paige will decide to leave the crib and sleep in there. She NOT interested at all. She LOVES her crib. She can climb in and out of it without problem, but when it's bedtime she willingly stays in it all night long. She just LOVES her crib!! So we'll have to see what happens in the next few months. We're not really pushing it because there's plenty of space in our room for the baby. But one day the babes will need it's own room...and bed. Which means Paige will be making the move. Poor girl.

Anyway, enough of the chatting, here's my 21 week pic:

Cute post, I would get your iron levels checked. I too felt very tired even passed the 3 month mark. Of course I'm anemic and am on iron supplements. Same as with my first pregnancy. Anyways, something you might want to check. Energy levels seem to perk up after taking supplements.

Ah you look fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very cuye bump. I too had such a hard time making the switch to maternity clothes that I never actually did! Ha, ha, ha! Long shirts and leggins are in, which is great when you are pregnant. Oh and I wore Lululemon pants and jackets the whole pregnancy as they are so comfortable and stretchy. Then when I couldn't zip up the jackets anymore, I bought the matching tank top from Lulu and left them open. They stretch with your body and then go right back to their original size after so you can wear them post baby. Love that! You always have the cutest bumps! Excited to see if it's a boy or girl, but I'm still saying boy!!!!!!!!!
