21 weeks

Well, I had my monthly doctors appointment last night and so far Lincoln is right on track. The doctor went over our results from my second trimester screening and everything looks great. All of his bones measured within the normal range, which is fantastic news. They won't be able to tell us for sure that he is in the clear for OI until he is born because we opted against the amnio. But we are very hopeful for our little Lincoln! I finally took a belly shot and decided to include it in this post. Jared thinks I'm huge!

How far along? 21 weeks 2 days
Weight gained? I am up 11 pounds total, which my doctor said is perfect!

How much does baby weigh? According to my book, 12.5 ounces.

Maternity clothes? They are a must.
Stretch marks? None.
Sleep? Is still a wonderful thing. I cannot express how wonderful it feels when I finally lay down for the evening.
Best moment this week? Our doctors appointment hearing that everything is going great!
Movement? He is officially a little wiggle worm! He doesn't stop! I am surprised by how much his movement has picked up the past two days. He is very active like his daddy :)
Food Cravings? Lemonade is the biggest craving I have.
Labor signs? None.
Belly button in or out? It's still flat, and I don't think there's anything there to push it out. It looks rather funny.
What I miss? My ribs not hurting. My latest crappy symptom is my ribs hurting on my right side right where my bra strap hits. The doctor said it's normal, especially because I'm so petite...ugh!
What I'm looking forward to? My baby shower in Rhode Island next month!
Milestone? Lincoln's huge increase in movement!
