21 weeks!

sneak peek of BT's nursery!

how far along: 21 weeks, 4 days!

baby size: According to our ultrasound last week we have a big boy on our hands! He is almost 1lb and is about 11 inches long! He is measuring a few days ahead of schedule. 

baby's progress: Bennett is constantly moving, kicking, punching, and squirming! I love  it!! He is still super low so it is sometimes uncomfortable, but it is definitely the coolest feeling ever. 

weight gain: 3lbs at the doctor last week.

stretch marks: Nope, & so thankful!

sleep: SOOOO much better thanks to my Snoogle pillow. Seriously, this thing changes lives and I will be sleeping with it long after this pregnancy is over!

gender: Sweet baby BOY! His name is Bennett Tucker : )

movement: All the time! Mostly at night when I lay down but I am now starting to feel it throughout the day when I'm in the car, running errands, etc.

best moment this week: My dad came over this week and helped us paint Bennett's room. I am so in love with how it is all turning out and can't wait to share when everything is finished! 

looking forward to: Registering! We are going to try to go sometime this week to get it done before school/football season starts. 

food cravings: My first true craving of my pregnancy...buffalo chicken wraps! I have had approximately 20 in the last 2 weeks. I always loved them pre-pregnancy, but I literally can't get enough of them lately and wake up dying for one! Ha!

weirdest food I ate this week: Still having to be very careful with what I eat so I haven't really had anything too weird. 

anything making you queasy or sick: Still about the same in this department. Some days are better than others but the queasiness is definitely here to stay I believe. I did make it 2 whole weeks without throwing up so that's a plus ha!

labor signs: Nope

what I miss: Being able to do things with ease. The littlest things are becoming harder and harder everyday. Shaving my legs is becoming quite the show let me just tell ya!

symptoms: Still dealing with sickness every other day or so but other than that I have been feeling REALLY good lately! 

things that suck: Going back to work next week which means 5am mornings for me! 

things that don't suck: Making it past the half way point! I will officially be 6 months pregnant next week which is INSANE to me. & I'm only a few weeks away from being in my third trimester. While I know we have plenty of time before our boy makes his debut there is still SO much left to do and not much time thanks to football season starting soon (#FootballWifeProbs). Hopefully we can knock out a few big things in the next few weeks!


  1. I am SO so excited. And I love his room sign so much I could cry! Can't wait to see pictures of his nursery!
