How far along are you? 21 weeks

Sleep? off and on

Best moment? just whenever I feel my sweet baby kick and move

Movement? moving around in there!

Any food cravings/aversions? thankful for my Zofran

Gender? BOY!!

Belly button? still an innie

What I miss? being able to sleep on my stomach

Looking forward to anything? get more furniture for Aiden's nursery

Symptoms this week: morning sickness

Weight gain? I'm going to guess a few more pounds.

Wedding rings? On

Maternity clothes? sometimes my belly band feels too tight and it makes me sick to my stomach.

What TheBump says: Pressure's on. Have you found the perfect baby name yet? It seems like parents-to-be either come up  with baby's name quickly and easily, or agonize over it all the way up until the birth. Either way, once you find one that seems perfect, you'll probably think it's even more perfect once you get to know (and fall in love with) the little bundle of joy who'll go by it. At 21 weeks, not only are you likely to be looking anywhere and everywhere for baby name ideas, but you might be getting a sneak preview of some third trimester symptoms, such as leaky boobs, Braxton Hicks contractions and heartburn. While your body preps for baby's arrival, you're probably hard at work getting your home ready too. Of course, things like baby bouncers and changing table pads can be tough to choose from, but try not to stress. Baby won't care if you pick out a playard that clashes with the area rug. Your baby's the sizes of a pomegranate! At 10.5 inches and about 12.7 ounces, she's big enough now that you've probably been feeling her movements. As her digestive system preps for the outside world, she's manufacturing meconium -- the tarry black substance you'll find in her first diaper (ew)! If it's a girl, she's already got a lifetime supple of eggs in her womb -- about six million of them!
