21 weeks

How far along? 21 weeks, 4 days 
Maternity clothes? Nothing new. Just wearing maternity jeans or leggings with my regular shirts.
Stretch marks? Still nothing
Sleep: Its impossible to sleep without a pillow supporting my belly. Also, if I sleep on one side for too long my hips hurt so I'm constantly tossing and turning.
Best moment this week: The arrival of our mattress! Even though the bed frame we ordered was out of stock, its so nice to be sleeping on a real mattress after being on a pull out couch for so long.
Miss Anything? My core strength, I feel like I have absolutely NO abs muscles left. Also, its getting colder and at this time I would usually be planning all my snowboarding trips for the Winter.
Movement: She is definitely moving in there!
Food cravings: Fruit Loops
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing. I've noticed a big change in my body this week and I'm finally feeling pregnant.
Have you started to show yet: Yes.
Labour Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? In. That thing runs deep, so I'm guessing it's not going to pop.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, unless I'm at the mall Christmas shopping!
Looking forward to: Flying to South Africa on Friday to spend the holidays with my family.


  1. Glad you're still happy and healthy! I bet it's nice to have a comfy mattress now. :)


  2. I love how you are documenting this wonderful time of your life. So so cute!

  3. I agree with Gentri. It's fun living it with you! I kinda hope your belly button pops, I think that's so cute :)

  4. I stumbled across your blog from pinterest. I love your pregnancy updates, such a cute idea!

  5. You need to look into getting a boppy body pillow! It has been a life saver for me!

  6. Fruit Loops! Wow I haven't had those in years!
    I love your lists :-) So awesome
    Much love, Bailey from Vanilla Blonde

  7. Howzit! I am mega thrilled to have found your blog! With so many American blogs it's refreshing to read a fellow Safrican's thoughts and experiences. I'm a fan! :) What part of our blessed homeland are you from? Congratulations on your pregnancy! Very exciting!

  8. I love my Snoogle pillow. My husband hates it. LOL

  9. Found you through Pinterest as well. And I think we are at the same place in our pregnancy I have 23 weeks this week. This is such a cute way to keep track of your pregnancy. Wish I had done something like this. Look forward to following you through the last few months of your pregnancy.
