I'm a little late, but here we are at 21 weeks! Something SUPER exciting happened this week.....I felt him move!!! *happy dance* It was one of the COOLEST experiences I have ever had! It has only happened once so far, but I'm confident over the next couple of weeks I'll be able to feel him more consistently. So. awesome. Also, the bump has popped out the past couple of weeks--another exciting milestone in pregnancy. I feel like I finally LOOK pregnant--not just like I ate too much.
Alright, here we go:

Miss anything: Not crying at the drop of a hat. Man, once one tear falls the water works is on! Oh pregnancy hormones.
Movement: I can FINALLY say YES to this!
Food cravings: I've really wanted coconut this week. I went through a whole carton of coconut milk--no lie.
