WHW: {#73}: Bumpin' Along

I took a bit of time off from the blog because of the holidays, but I'm back for WHW and today I'm sharing a bump-date and the GENDER!!


How Far Along: 5 months (21 weeks)

Size of Baby: The size of a Carrot

Gender: We had our gender reveal with our family on Christmas evening before dinner and now everyone knows we are having a GIRL!!!!!


Weight Gain: about 10-11 pounds--right on track!

Food Cravings: I haven't been having cravings, but boy did we get our fix of Mexican food while we were in San Diego! If this little girl doesn't like Mexican food when she comes out, she's gonna be in trouble.

Food Aversions: Still nothing. I just can't stomach cooking fish, but I have no problems ordering and eating it out. I just can't cook it myself.

Movement: I've been feeling movements for a couple of weeks now, and while we were in San Diego, I saw the first of a few kicks from the outside. Expecting those to become more frequent in the coming weeks.

Sleep: Through the night. I get pain in my hips some nights from sleeping only on my sides, but that was helped by a wedge my SIL got me over Christmas.

Clothing: Wearing maternity jeans and leggings like it's my job. I found an outlet while in San Diego for Motherhood Maternity which has VERY affordable maternity clothing that's super cute ($30-40 for jeans instead of the $80-90+). And a mix of maternity and non-maternity tops. The bump is definitely showing more now though.
Other Pregnancy Symptoms: Reflux from time to time. Luckily not acid reflux...just that full throat feeling.

What I Miss: honestly, not too much. Maybe the ability to go a lot longer without needing to pee, but beyond that, things are pretty good and I can't complain

Best Moment: Doing the gender reveal with our family! It was so much fun and it's nice that we don't have to worry about slipping up anymore :)
Looking Forward To: MG being able to feel the kicks that little girl does when they become more frequent.

Now it's your turn to link up with Jessi and I to share what's hap-"pinning" with you!

  21. Yay yay yay for a sweet baby girl. That is just so exciting. I'm pretty jealous of your motherhood maternity outlet find. Maternity pants have becomes my least favorite thing to buy because of how expensive they can be. Hope you are feeling great and have a great New Year's Eve.
