21 Weeks! Pink or Blue?

 Dan and I found out Friday what the gender of the baby would be. We waited until Sunday (my next day off work) to invite our parents over for lunch to reveal to them the gender of their grandchild. 
Dan and I made the above cupcakes and filled the insides with frosting to indicate the baby's gender.

This is one of the several ultrasound pictures we received from the appointment. 

How Far Along: 21 Weeks
Due Date: 7.7.14
Gender: BOY!
Names: Liam Mason 
Movement: I was violently kicked and/or punched from the inside this week! Twice in a row as a matter of fact. / Has been much more active!

Size:  Carrot
Weight Gain: NONE! I am so fine with this.

Maternity Clothes: I can completely still wear my own shirts as long as they have some stretch to them (otherwise the feel to confining, good-bye work shirts hello maternity tops!). But I have basically moved into my maternity jeans and leggings.
Symptoms:  Back Aches, Frequent Bathroom Trips and
Cravings:Nothing really.
Sleep:  For the most part it is okay. A little broken up with the whole visiting the bathroom and "growing pains" but I still manage at least 7 hours. 
Stretch Marks: Already had them 
My Overall Health: Fine. I feel like have a cold but besides sneezing and a stuffy nose when I lay down I have no other symptoms....
What I miss: Sleeping like the dead.
Wedding Rings On or Off?:  On, they are actually loose!
Belly Button: In
Best Moment: 1. The best moment was feeling our little munchkin move!
