Weekly Update: 20 weeks

Half baked!!!!

This is an additional picture because some friends say that you can not tell the growth as much in the all black

This is a new feature we want to try, the always changing view from the top.

How far along: 20 weeks, half way!!!!

Total weight gain/loss: 11 lbs

Maternity clothes: My closet seems to be shrinking on me. You would not believe the trouble I have had finding a bathing suit for our trip this weekend.

Stretch marks: Nothing new

Sleep: Crappy! I can not sleep on my belly because it hurts. I am not allowed to sleep on my back anymore. That leaves the sides and that is just okay. Plus, I am constantly waking up on my back and having to turn myself over.

Best moment this week: We went for our OB appointment last Wednesday and normally I am nervous that something will be wrong with Pumpkin, but this time I had felt him kick a few times in the waiting room, so I knew he was fine. The doctor started up the doppler and could not find anything. It took her a few minutes to find his heartbeat because he would kick it and run away. She even thought he was hilarious!

Movement: All day at various times. We have been putting headphones on my belly for him to listen to classical music and everytime a song ends and a new song starts, it startles him. It is so funny!!

Food cravings: Carbs and sweets, but being good this week about getting in my fruits and veggies.

Food aversions: Nothing new here, but still no bell peppers

Gender: A little guy

Labor Signs: Far from that

Belly Button in or out? Still the same but being pushed further and further out

What I miss: Sleeping comfortably

What I am looking forward to: Ultrasound this Friday and beach this weekend

Weekly Wisdom: Our doctor assured me about some things that have been weighing on my mind

Milestones: We are half way there. Sometimes I want it to slow down and then others I cannot wait for October to get here and we get to meet our little man!!!!

Measurements: Chest- +.25”, Waist- same, Hips- same
