21 Weeks (and 1 day)

I started a new job yesterday (which I love) so I am a bit behind on my weekly update. However, have no fear…here I am…and so is my she-bump! I feel like I have doubled in size!

How far along? 21 weeks
Total weight gain? I think I am still hovering right around 11 pounds.
Maternity clothes? No maternity tops quite yet. I mainly wear leggings to lounge around in and use my belly band for during the day.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep? I sleep like a husband, which in my book, is even better than a baby. So thankful!
Best moment this week? Where do I begin!? I started a new job! I will be doing Social Media and various projects for a local real estate company here in Kansas City. I really like it so far and everyone I work with is so incredibly nice and welcoming. I was worried about finding a new job while pregnant but everyone has just been so kind. I feel very blessed. Also, Tyler and I finally found a house!!!! We have been living with my parents for the past 9 months for a couple reasons but mainly so we could save money to finally purchase our own house. We rented for our first year of marriage and didn't really get to save much money because of that. I hate renting. I feel like we just burnt money. Anyway, we put an offer on a house Friday night and they accepted it Sunday morning after just 1 round of counter offers. We can't wait to close on March 20th, get moved in and settled. I personally can't wait to get baby girl's nursery all set up. I am probably going to have all the furniture and decor ordered so we can just move it all in with the rest of our belongings. 

Lord, please give me enough energy to get through that move! (a little blog prayer for ya')
We feel so incredibly thankful that my parents let us live with them and save enough money for a down payment. It's tough out there, folks. Gotta' do whatcha' gotta do. :)

Miss anything? Now that I have started work, it would be really nice to be able to take a cold, deli turkey sandwich to work for lunch. :(
Food cravings? Yogurt with strawberries and chocolate milk here and there
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope!
Gender? Sweet girl
Labor signs? No
Movement? Yes! She really likes the song Claire De Lune. Tyler plays it for her from his iPhone and she immediately starts dancing in there. So sweet. We laugh every time we see my stomach protrude from one of her feet or fists. 
Symptoms? Still headaches. If I lay down, they seem to subside, though. 
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy! It was a great week!
Looking forward to? Tyler's parents come in town from Jacksonville this week! We only get to spend one day with them but we haven't seen them since we got pregnant. :)
