21 weeks

How far along:  21 weeks

Baby Size: A pomegranate

Weight:  133!  Up 2 1/2lbs this past week.  My total is just over 10lbs, 7 of that in the last month.

Having to pee all night every night. 

Maternity Clothes:  $100+ dollars later I have a pair of jean shorts that fit, a tank top, t-shirt, maxi dress that work. I also ordered another pair of jean shorts, yoga/ casual style shorts, a hoodie, a t-shirt and a tank top from old navy so hoping those will work.  I hate spending money on clothes when I don't have a job, but I need a few more things, and I'll probably be okay.  Get used to seeing me in the same things this summer.  

Sleep:  I miss it.

Cravings/Food Aversions:  I want donuts!  Actually I told myself if I wanted one yesterday I had to walk to get it.  So I did.  It was a mile and a half (there and back) in 80 degree temps.  I got my donut though.

Belly Button: Still pretty far in.

Rings on or off:  On, although it's been humid so it was a little hard to slide off yesterday. 
Please excuse the messy hair. 

Gender:  Girl!

Name:  On Friday I was out with my sister and she guessed it and I can't lie.  So we decided to go ahead and share it.  Rob was pretty excited to call his family and tell them.  Her first name comes from the name of the road that my grandparents lived on and that I had really good memories on.  So while technically we are naming her after a road it's a legit name.  Her middle name is Rob's grandma's name. Her name is.....

Eleanor Rose 

Movement: It's still sporadic but the movements are a little stronger, and more poke/jab like and less of the rolling pulsing I was feeling before. 

Best moment: Hearing the heartbeat again; getting lots of clothes for her (thank you garage sales and donations), sharing the name.

Looking forward to:  Viability day in 3 weeks.

What I miss:  Sleep, frozen mixed drinks, riding my bike.

Labor signs: Nope and I'm okay with nothing for another 17 weeks. 

Appointments:  24 week and the glucose test on June 13th.

Misc.  Thanks to some savvy shopping and donations she is all set for newborn size (maybe need a few short sleeve onesies), and the 3-6 month range.  I still need 0-3 size, 6-9 month, and 9-12 (but I won't worry about that size until next summer).


  1. Yay! Congrats on picking a name! It's beautiful, and I love that it has meaning behind it. Although if you were going for a road name, why not Atkinson? ;-)

    1. Thanks! We considered Atkinson, but figured it would work better on a boy. :)

  2. The name is beautiful and elegant!

    If you want and they are available check out some consignment shops or places like goodwill for maternity clothes. They are worn for such a short time. Maybe you can get more choices. Most of my maternity clothes came from those places.

  3. Elanor Rose is a beautiful name!!! Congrats.

  4. What a beautiful name - so pretty.

    Thanks so much for sharing at the Friday Baby Shower - Alice x
