Pregnancy Highlights

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 21 weeks!

Size of baby: 
your baby's the size of a pomegranate!

At 10.5 inches and about 12.7 ounces, he's big enough now that you've probably been feeling his movements

Baby Development This Week: 
As his digestive system preps for the outside world, he's manufacturing meconium -- the tarry black substance you'll find in his first dirty diaper (ew)!
Maternity Clothes: Still in regular clothes and using belly band for jeans. (I’ve gone up a few bra sizes)

Gender: IT’S A BOY! John Declan Leviner! He will be called Declan. Declan is of Irish origin and means full of goodness. J

Movement: He is becoming more and more active as the days go by!

Sleep: I wake up every couple of hours, so I don’t get a steady number of hours of sleep.

What I miss: I miss being able to do whatever I need to do. Sometimes I forget that I’m pregnant and it’s harder to do some tasks.
Cravings: Mostly salty foods.

Symptoms: headaches, harder to move around and lean over, RLS, leg cramps, dizziness (that’s a new one.)

Best Moment this week: I love getting to feel Declan kick more regularly. It’s an awesome feeling!


  1. I'm just going to say "Blueberry" and see if you know what that means. lol text me if you do!

  2. Pomegranate...YUM :D
    But seriously - yay - he is getting so big :)
    That's awesome you are feeling him kick so often!! ox
