a banana

How far along: twenty one+ weeks
How big is baby: around 12.7 ounces
Total weight gain: not available.
Maternity clothes: yes! starting to plan for some fashionable options for NYC
Sleep: good, except my allergies are amplified with pregnancy, so that means 4am nose gushing sessions.
Best moment this week: i have started buying little things here and there for baby boy.
Gender: boy! boy! boy!
Craving: god, sugar. i am so screwed for my glucose test.
Movement: definitely feeling jabs and pokes daily!
Labor Signs: none, thankfully! this baby has a while to bake still.
Belly Button in or out: out, very out.
Stretch marks: this is weird this question is on here, like one week you might say, "oh, they just went away?"
What I miss: wearing stella.
What I am looking forward to: my appointment tomorrow with our new midwife team!
Milestones: nothing major, closer to him being here then we were last week :)

i am closer then i am further away, from having this boy in my arms! we meet our new midwife team tomorrow and i will get all of my home birth questions answers and i am so excited! his movement is so strong these days, i am feeling it in more places then just the tiny opening in the front where my anterior placenta wasn't covering and i even think i can tell when he "flips!"

still no name but we are down to a solid two, but knowing us this could change next week, ha! when we found out it was a boy, i made tim a hard-no edits allowed-list of stuff we need before he comes, luckily this being number four i have learned that we don't need a very long list of stuff. just things we ran out of or it would be weird if we used pink of, haha! like lotions and outfits for the first few days.
gap is having a great sale so i scored ten to twelve outfits to get my little man through his first few weeks, it will be winter and i can already bet we will be hanging out at home on the couch a lot.

i can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going! i leave for nyc is twenty-nine days and i hope baby wise it is super uneventful. i will have my midwife check my cervix the day before i go, to make sure it is nice and closed up. i think i am still in the safe zone to fly but i want to be extra safe about it.

so until next week!
