Bumpdate | 21 Weeks

How Far Along:  21 weeks (5.25 months)
Size of baby:  A pomegranate?!  I'm not quite sure how he went from a banana last week to a pomegranate this week.  Bananas are definitely bigger than pomegranates right?  Or am I going mental?
Gender:  Baby Boy!  You can see all the details from our Gender Reveal here
Maternity Clothes:  I finally have something to report on this front!  My sweet cousin Kristen gave me a bag full of maternity clothes including the cutest pair of maternity skinny jeans that I can't wait to show you all!
Symptoms:  Between congestion and heartburn, I have not been sleeping well.  I guess it's just preparing me for all those sleepless nights I'll get once baby boy is here.  

Best Moments:  Little dude has been way more active lately!  Feeling his little jabs and movements is the best feeling in the world.  He is getting bigger and stronger, so his movements are able to be felt from the outside now too.  When we were home in Maine over the long weekend my mom was able to feel a bunch of his kicks which was a really special moment.  He was going nuts in there - I think he was as excited for the long weekend as I was!
Looking forward to:  Without fail, every time Jay puts his hand on my stomach to feel the little kicks and punches that I have been loving so much, the baby stops moving!  I think he thought I was making it up (or going crazy) until my mom was able to feel the movement too.  I'm really looking forward to the hubs feeling the first kick - and I know he is too.  I have a feeling it will be this week (fingers crossed!)

  1. I'm pretty sure he is prepping you to stay awake when he arrives so he's making sure you're a little uncomfortable LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Love to hear the little dude is more active! I'm sure that's beyond exciting. :)

  3. Ugh, Danielle, this is all so ridiculously cute! Seriously, I'm so thrilled for you and absolutely love reading the bump updates - I think I get a TON of extra enjoyment out of this because none of my girlfriends have kiddos yet and I'm actually the only one married/even thinking of possibly making a little family of my own in the near(ish!) future! I guess I'm basically living vicariously through you!

    Fingers crossed you start feeling and sleeping a little better from here. Oh and good luck to Jay on catching a kick this week! It WILL happen!


  4. How exciting! I am sure you are enjoying every minute of it! Your really look amazing too!


  5. So cute! So exciting that he is more active!

  6. I like these because I can actually see your bump! Sometimes it's hard to tell in your outfit posts. So fun that he is moving around more.
