21 week pregnancy update

We have made it past the half way point! I have procrastinated finding a new doctor since the move a month ago and really need to get that done--especially since I am overdue for my 20 week ultrasound! Anyway..

21 week pregnancy update

Stats so far:

Weeks: 21
Gender: It's a girl!!!!!
Weight Gain: 6 pounds
Stretch Marks: 0
Symptoms: Lack of appetite, bloating,
Cravings: Pineapple and oranges. Any fruit really.
Missing: Energy. Sleeping on stomach, Having a bra that fits properly (I gain weight in my breasts)
Exercise: Cardio 3 times a week for 45 minutes and free weights so far only 2-3 times per week. I'd love to up it.
Diet: We were on vacation last week and so we ate out a ton. I definitely feel like I gained a lot more weight than necessary. Hopefully it mellows out as I get back to my normal eating habits.

Last week we were on vacation so I ate a lot more than normal & didn't exercise, because of that I gained like 4 pounds very quickly. I think that as I get back to my normal diet & exercise routine, my weight gain should slow for the next week or 2 and I'll mainly just maintain the weight. We will see..
