Week 21

How far along 21 weeks
Maternity clothes? regular jeans and shorts, maternity shirts and dresses
Sleep: good
Best moments this week: My mom and I were up late chatting as neither of us could sleep, and Baby S was moving around quite a bit. The movements were small but continuous, and I asked my mom if she wanted to try to feel. Immediately after placing her hand on my belly, Baby S let out some big kicks, punches, and wiggles. Seeing the joy and love on my mom's face as she felt her first grandchild move was priceless. 
Pete spent last week in Duluth and hadn't had a chance to feel Baby S move since last week but really wanted to feel some kicks. We were sitting on our bed and the baby was pretty still, so I suggested that Pete sing and play his guitar. Baby S must love music because he/she starting moving around like crazy. It was incredible. Pete got to feel LOTS of movement then :)
Miss anything? my old bod
Movement: There is either a lot of movement and I feel great or a little movement and my bladder kills. I think Baby S is kicking my bladder on days with little movement. ouch!
Food Cravings: none
Anything making you queasy or sick: the smell of garlic 
Have you started to show yet? definitely
Gender Prediction: Amanda = ?   Peter = boy   
Labor signs: no
Belly button in our out: in
Wedding rings on or off: on
Mood: Happy
Looking forward to: our ultrasound on Wednesday! We can't wait to finally know if we are having a boy or girl!

** Please take a moment to write your vote in the comment section this week. Do you think Baby Swenson is a boy or a girl?


  1. I would say yes baby S is either a boy or a girl. :)
    Actually I don't have a strong feeling one way or the other, but I'm excited to hear the sex.
