21 Weeks

How far along?  21 weeks
Total weight gain: 15 pounds...everybody be cool, I'm on track, ok?  Plus, we got a sneak peak of Baby J on the sonogram this week and it looks like she's got quite the pair of ham hocks on her.  That must be where all the weight comes from.  She got it from her mama...
Maternity clothes? Yes and lovin' it! 

Sleep:  Lots and lots...I was exhausted this week!  Maybe I need to start taking an iron supplement?
Best moment this week: Seeing Baby J on the sonogram!  This is the second time we've gotten a good look at her on an ultrasound.  Both times she loves to keep her little hands up by her face, a lot of times with one hand on her forehead (drama queen).  I keep wondering if once she's born she'll lay the same way in her crib...can't wait to find out! 

Miss Anything?  Lunch meat!  A turkey sandwich sounds so good right now
Movement:  SO much! 

Food cravings:  Fruit, milk, and red meat!  I can't stop thinking about hamburgers. Also, do yourself a favor and walk past the peaches and nectarines in the grocery store.  They smell so good I almost passed out
Anything making you queasy or sick:  No, thankfully
Have you started to show yet:  Yes
Gender:  Good news folks, she's still a girl
Labor Signs:  No
Belly Button in or out?  In
Wedding rings on or off? On and off...more on than off though, I think 
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Ah...I have so many people to thank for the huge range of emotions I felt this week.  Thank you to the dollar store for having knock-off versions of Pinwheels, they were delicious.  Thank you to the sonogram lady for helping me see my baby girl.  I, of course, have to acknowledge the Precinct 4 Constable's office for sending me that warrant for my arrest...but mostly, I'd like to thank that officer who pulled me over last spring and made my day by telling me I wouldn't actually get a ticket and then secretly turned one in anyway.  The anger, the laughter, the tears and, dare I say it, the entire warrant...wouldn't have been possible without you.  Thanks so much for that.  Finally, I'd like the thank the schools who hired me as a substitute teacher anyway.  Your blind faith in me despite my delinquent record is touching. 
Looking forward to:  Our Fantasy Football draft this weekend!! I'm making chili, cornbread, and I'll be darned if ____________ doesn't end up on my team! [name removed to protect strategy]  Can't wait for football season to officially start!!!
