21 weeks (well, basically 22 to be precise) | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

21 weeks (well, basically 22 to be precise)


21 weeks (and 5 days)! Obviously there's no mistaking that I'm pregnant because little girl is getting bigger (yay!!) My app says baby is the size of a banana! That just seems funny to me. Plus bananas are like 5 different sizes so like HOW BIG IS SHE?! Either way, banana baby. Which is perfect because my favorite thing to eat lately is cut up strawberries + bananas. Side note- did you know walmart price matches?? So I always get strawberries there and just price match with the cheapest place selling strawberries because I eat SO many! They're $1.27 at Fry's right now in case you're dying to run to walmart to price match and save some $. Or just go to Fry's if they exist where you live :)



Just wanted to include 1 more prego full body picture because why not? So in other baby news, I throw up sometimes but not nearly as much as before and the all day sickness is more rare! I've been getting worn out quicker but I'll take that any day if it means not being sick so much.

I feel like everyday belly triples in size or something! She is moving  so much, too! I feel her kicks (not super strong, but getting stronger) mostly when I lay on my back or something. Jason hasn't been able to feel her yet but I'm always like "hey J she's MOVING OH MY GOSH" and then obviously she stops when he tries to feel. I bet he'll be able to feel her soon! K so interesting fact that my app told me haha baby has taste buds! So she can taste what I eat! I just thought that was really cool because I never thought too in depth about what goes on in there and the app teaches me all of these random facts that blow my mind.

My belly button is getting more shallow but hasn't popped out or anything yet. Do they always pop out? Oh and sleep is still good, it isn't hard to sleep yet so hopefully it stays that way! My fingers/ ankles haven't swelled up yet (yay!) and I wouldn't mind if they don't swell at all! I'm just trying to think of all those random pregnancy questions people answer and I think I covered everything!

And of course some pictures of us! Oh and I am loving these shirts so much! My cousin, Kaesi, recommended them to me and I'm obsessed because they're they perfect non-maternity-but-i'm-getting-a-belly shirts :) Plus they'll still work great when I'm not pregnant!! Welp, that is all for now!

  4. Ahh you are so gorgeous girl!! These apps are so cool, I can't wait to follow along when I get pregnant. I had no clue that they developed taste buds this early. Hope Jason gets to feel her too, that's gotta be a cool feeling!

  6. You look amazing! Love that sweet baby bump. Both of my babes would stop moving whenever I told Drew to feel. Ha ha. He said that usually he'd feel them kick and move at night when he'd put his arm around me to sleep. He said a few times it would freak him out because he was asleep and woken up by baby kicking him in the arm. "Move it Dad, you are squeezing me!"

    1. Thank you so so much!! haha and that is so funny, I feel like that, too! last night Jason just had his hand on my belly for a while and she finally kicked and he felt it!! and that is really funny about your husband feeling baby while you guys slept, that would be a funny little wake up call :)

  14. You're so cute, you're so cute, you're so cute. I want that shirt, I want that shirt, I want that shirt. I feel like if I knew you in real life I'd be borrowing all your clothes lol. And make you do my hair. And my eyebrows. And that would be awesome lol. Anyways, you're cute. And I LOLed at the banana thing lol. Seriously! That is kind of broad. When I was home my step-sister was saying how her baby was 15 inches long and John got out measuring take and we were all like, "OMG THAT'S HUGE HOW IS SHE IN THERE" it was crazy. But I guess they're all curled up nice and tight, not like standing up lol. Okay, and how do you do the price match thing? I've seen someone do it in front of me a long time ago, when I was in a hurry and I was like, COME ON. I think she had to bring all the coupons in right? I need to start saving money on produce because I am eating through $$$ trying to be healthy.

    1. K thank youuuuu! I feel kind of like a big balloon haha so that is nice to hear!! :) K I have this shirt in 5 colors (went a little crazy) but they are so freaking comfy and make good pregnancy shirts + normal shirts when baby is outta here. It's a deal, if you move here we will have an open closet policy ;) k and exactly, there are a million different banana sizes haha how am I supposed to know what one she is?! come on, app!! Someone got us a bunch of baby clothes and a 3 month onesie was HUGE, like they must just grow at lightening speed because we were both like holy crap! So when I price match, all I do is google the ad (so like google Fry's weekly ad or whatever grocery stores are near you always have weekly ads that they put online) and I go to walmart and just say I'd like to price match these, they're $1 at this store and sometimes they look at the ad I have pulled up or they can look it up, too. So I've been googling like every place's strawberry prices so I can keep up my addiction and not go broke haha :)

  16. I loved your snaps yesterday! haha That was totally me! "But the baby wanted it." I am happy to report my belly button never popped! I did feel worn down until about mid-way to the end of my second trimester. Once the third rolled around I had a bunch of energy. Hopefully you have that to look forward to! haha

  19. Belly buttons are so weird when your pregnant! Mine was mostly shallow the entire pregnancy. The last month it sort of poked out, but not really.
