Does anyone else sing the Gwen Stefani 'Hollaback Girl' song when writing 'bananas'?!  Just me? 

I'm officially 21 weeks!  It's kind of crazy to think that I'm more than halfway now!  I'm hoping the rest of this pregnancy doesn't fly by because I still have a lot to do and I'm enjoying every moment!  According to the Bump this week, Baby Carson is the size of a banana.  Nick was laughing about Carson going from a cantaloupe to a banana.  This was basically our conversation:
Me: "Babe, Carson is the size of a banana now!"
Nick: "So apparently he got long and real skinny this week!"

This week we ordered (and received) Carson's bedding and I LOVE it!  I'm going to use it to pick out a paint color pretty soon and I'm pretty excited about that. 

Here is the weekly run-down.......

How far along? 21 weeks
Total weight gain: Maybe 5lbs by now.  Somewhere between 4 and 5 I'm sure. 
Maternity clothes? Not yet!  I wore my BeBand from Target one day this week but it wasn't really necessary yet so I haven't worn it again.  (I'm thinking it will be necessary VERY soon!)
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: Sleeping great and my cold is gone!  Lately I've only been waking up once every night to pee which is a huge improvement!
Best moment this week: Having Nick feel Carson kick HARD 3 times in a row last night!
Miss Anything? Just warm weather...nothing pregnancy related :)
Movement: Definitely more movement this week!  Carson is moving around as I type this.  He seems to be pretty active in the late afternoons and evenings and sometimes in the morning!
Food cravings: Sweets this week.  I went to the grocery and bought mini powdered donuts, chocolate Special K bars, and ingredients for a cake from Pinterest!  (Don't worry, I also bought a bunch of fruit!)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: Baby BOY Carson!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Nothing level is improving but I'll still have a random night where I get home from work and pass out on the couch!
Belly Button in or out? innie
Wedding rings on or off? on still...hopefully for a while!Happy or Moody most of the time: Super happy!  I can't help but smile when I feel Carson moving around in there!
Looking forward to: Picking out a paint color for Carson's nursery!
Here is the latest bump pic.  I don't feel like I look much bigger than last week's pic but I feel a ton bigger and people at work are finally starting to believe I have a baby in there! :) 
P.S. My butt looks huge and that's real life.  I've always had a ghetto booty :)
