Break out the sparkling cider — You have hit the half way point in your
pregnancy! Baby is the size of a banana! He weighs about 10.6 ounces and is
about 6.5 inches long! He still has a lot of growing to do though. At week
20, your baby has working taste buds, and he is gulping down several ounces of
amniotic fluid a day!
How far along? 20 weeks…holy cow!
Total weight gain: -4lbs. I fluctuate 2 or 3 pounds every week and have yet to get back up to my pre-pregnancy weight. Even though I haven’t gained anything, I’m definitely feeling like I have! This baby is taking up a lot of space and I feel huge!
Maternity clothes? Waiting for my jeans to come in 🙂
Stretch marks? No new ones.
Sleep: Still restless and getting up in the middle of the night to pee.
Best moment this week: Nothing major happened this week. I guess just feeling baby boy move around every day is pretty awesome!
Miss Anything? Sleeping through the night. Sweetbay white chocolate mochas.
Movement: Yes!!! And a lot of it! It’s amazing! My little boy is a mover!
Food cravings: Milk. Chocolate milk. Volcano tacos from Taco Bell (minus lettuce).
Anything making you queasy or sick: Someone came into the clinic with an infected eye socket this week. I didn’t stomach that too well.
Gender prediction: Sweet baby boy!
Labor Signs: No, thank you.
Symptoms: Fatigue, sore nipples this week, mild nausea, bloat/gas, super sense of smell. Occasional round ligament pain. Sciatic nerve pain! Heartburn and indigestion! Leg cramps at night. Oh, and a new one…shortness of breath!
Belly Button in or out? In. I have a pretty chunky belly, so I imagine it’ll stay.
Wedding rings on or off? They fit.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy!
Looking forward to: My next ultrasound.
Next appointment: August 27th – Anatomy Scan!
