Bump Date: 21 Weeks

The 2 hours I saw Andrew yesterday I forgot to get him to take a picture, so mirror picture it is.

How far along:
21 weeks

Total weight gain:

Size of baby:
(This seems odd to me as last week they compared his size to a banana. I feel like bananas are more times bigger than carrots than the other way around, humph...)
Judging by my belly and how hard it is to tie my shoes already I'd say he's atleast 2 or 3 carrots.  ;)

Maternity Clothes:
I've got a few normal stretchy pants I can wear, but the rest are maternity.

It's a BOY!!! 

Baby Boy's Name:
Oliver Gammill
Oliver- after my Great Grandmother Olive / Gammill (like camel with a 'G')- Andrew's mom's maiden name, as well as Andrew's middle name

Little man is moving a lot more.  He tends to roll more than he does kick.  I've already started getting some alarming and uncomfortable jabs in the side.  (I'm thinking it's his boney elbows.)
*Favorite Bouncy Spot: my bladder
*Favorite Bounce Time: evening (5ish), bedtime

Ha, well I'm back up to 2-3 bathroom breaks a night and I've been waking up randomly a couple times a night.  Laying on my stomach is pretty much out of the picture as anytime I do I'm quickly awoken by kicks or punches.

What I miss:
Not much.

Cravings: Sausage, Egg & Cheese Toasters, Veggies, Polar Ice (I only have till September 2nd), and MILK (accompanied by lactaid pills, blah)
Aversions: fish doesn't sound good on any level and I can't stand the smell of eggs cooking which then makes me not want to eat them

Other Symptoms:
1- NESTING (with Andrew getting ready to leave for the next couple months I think my subconscious is turning it on ALOT earlier this time around.  I'm ready to get everything done and I want to do it RIGHT now!  That being said, my energy is back.  I also feel I need to take advantage of this time while it lasts because it may be gone again in the next few weeks.

Big moment this week:
Hadley felt Oliver kick!!!  It was GREAT!! Her face was priceless and she just looked at me and said, "WOW, that was awesome!!"

I also feel like he's starting to develop a little bit of a personality.  With Hadley we could mess with her (poke around on my belly) and she would kick and punch with this "bring it on" attitude.  
When we do it to Oliver he won't move for several minutes after.  Honestly, I picture him just balled up with his lip sticking out wishing we would just leave him alone.  I was telling Andrew's mom this the other night and she just laughed and said he's sounding like an Andrew.

Thanks for checkin' in!!
