21 weeks

November 15, 2014

Photo thoughts:
I don't really have any thoughts on this one. I'm looking a little pregnant and pretty much always rocking the maternity clothes.

Pregnancy symptoms:
Heartburn is back every night. Zantac helps. No other symptoms besides lots of movement, a bigger belly, and the typical weight gain (5-6lbs at this point).

Boy or girl:
I still think girl most days.

Food aversions/cravings:
My main frustration is that I never know what I'm going to want to eat. I'll plan a menu for the week that sounds good at the time, spend the money on groceries, and then the night that I'm supposed to make the food comes and it just sounds terrible. It's frustrating. I eat plenty and there really isn't anything that I won't eat at this point. I just never know what is going to sound good.

Best moment of the week:
Sleeping almost the entire day on Thursday. Haha. It was amazing. I'm not really sure what had me so exhausted but I was thankful that Patrick allowed me some extra sleep by getting up with Owen.

Looking forward to:
Next week is a busy week. I have put a lot on my plate, but it's all good things that I'm excited about. Tuesday is Owen's birthday, Wednesday I have a Thanksgiving feast with my dgroup girls (I'm making the Turkey and dressing), and Thursday is Owen's actual birthday party that we're hosting here at the house.


  1. Hey Elizabeth, where have you shopped for maternity pants? I think I'm good on tops for the next few months since most of my winter wear is big sweaters that have some give to them. But I'm clueless about shopping for pants. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    1. I went for deals since I hated the thought of spending a lot on such temporary clothing. I've got khols, target, motherhood maternity, and a pair of jeans from a shop that was on Zulily. Just head to some stores and start trying on! Good luck! Let me know if there is anything else I can help with. Planning for the first is so much fun!

  2. Great thanks! I will check those out soon. Just today I had to pull a pair of jeans out of the wardrobe cause they no longer fit. I mostly wear my LOFT cords these days since they have a bit more give than jeans. But I'm sure that won't last too much longer :)
