20 weeks! Halfway There, People!!

Oh. My. Goodness. 

So, I feel like a lot has changed now that I have hit the 20 week mark. Let's see...

  • Every day that passes is now on the downhill side of this ride.
  • I can feel movement, but even better.... I can see movement. No lie, even Tim has seen it!
  • If something were to go wrong at this point, it would not be considered a miscarriage, but a stillborn. Not that the title matters, and I pray every night that Hunter continues to grow healthily (is that a word?). 

Here are the stats:

How far along? 20 Weeks, 2 day2

Total weight gain: 1 pound, I am going off morning weight from 20 weeks and 2 days 

Maternity clothes? Yes, I am loving my maternity leggings (Thanks, mom!!), and I am still able to wear my jeans with the belly band or a maternity tank top. I bought it  from Target, it is the same brand as the belly band I use, I think it's called B.E. Band.... It is long enough to cover everything, kinda tight but stretchy, and ruched along the sides so it doesn't look funny.

I am also looking forward to my burthday and our trip to New Orleans for the Superbowl Party!

Belly Button in or out? in, but getting wide and more open. It used to be all wrinkly in there, and now it is smooth because it is so stretched out! That is totally fine with me, though, I think a forced 'outie' will be weird!

Wedding rings on or off? on, they fit totally fine, maybe because its kind of cold?

Happy or Moody most of the time: so very happy, but I did get a touch moody with Tim the other night!

Looking forward to: getting the furniture, 2 weeks down, 10 to go!! This may turn into a baby furniture countdown, lol!

Stretch marks? I don't think so. I have always had a few on my hip/back area, I gained some weight in high school and lost it fast in college. I was putting on my cream this morning and may have noticed a couple more, but I'm not sure :(

Sleep: Not the best... I wake up every night to pee and can't fall back to sleep. I have also started getting uncomfortable. I like to sleep tight in a ball, but if I do that then I get this pinching feeling like I am squishing the poor guy!

Best moment this week: Getting to see and feel him move! I makes me giggle when he really gets kicking! It was also really cool that Tim has been able to see and feel him move this week, too!

Miss Anything? Sleeping normal. My brain, I joke with my kids that the baby is stealing my brains whenever I forget a word or call them the wrong name!

Movement: Yes! The past few days it has been all day, but I haven't felt him today:( Going to check his heartbeat when I get home from work, haha!

Food cravings: Not too bad, I have had the urge to really get organized with meals, though. I made a menu book using something I found on Pinterest. I think this may be early nesting!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Getting too hungry. If I am kinda hungry, and I go to feed the dogs, the dog food usually makes me sick.

Gender: Boy! Hunter Ryan 

Labor Signs: Nope

Symptoms: Nothing really, other than my bump is getting bigger! Still having some leg cramps, and I have definitely started nesting! I totally cleaned and organized the closet a couple of weeks ago, and this weekend I cleaned and organized the pantry. This is keeping me occupied because I can't get the nursery ready!

  1. You look so cute.

    My BeBand is my friend. Most of my work pants don't fit quit right, so it helps a TON!
