20 week update
How far along? ~ 20 weeks. halfway!!
Size of Baby: Small cantaloupe I guess? TheBump is weird.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Up around 4 pounds I think. We had an appointment yesterday but it was late in the day, after two meals and 60 ounces of water. The rest of my appointments have all been beginning of the day, so it feels like it’s not really comparable.
Maternity Clothes: Definitely a small bump and while I have one pair of jeans that still fits, my shirts are kind of short so I’m moving to all maternity shirts. My best friend gifted me with three HUGE bags of clothes. Awesome. And I wore a pair of her maternity capris that were the most comfy things ever.
Sex of Baby: At our appointment yesterday we confirmed that it is DEFINITELY a boy. No questions.
Belly Button In/Out: In
Stretch Marks: Nope
Labor Signs: Nope
Movement: Still not really. But he was doing plenty of moving on the ultrasound yesterday. Super cute!
Sleep: I’m sleeping with a towel wrapped around me..some of it bunched up under my stomach and some bunched under my back. Going to back to having some insomnia, but overall not too bad.
Cravings/Aversions: Nothing particular but last night after nearly hitting the floor while grocery shopping I realized I probably have to eat more. No joke.
Symptoms: Still mid-back pain and pain around my sternum/under my right boob. The OB yesterday said if symptoms get worse they can check me for gallstones but at this point she thinks it’s just my ribs stretching. Which, if they didn’t use that as a torture method in medieval times, they really should have.
Feeling: Still excited, got some paint samples yesterday and looking forward to getting the nursery painted and then putting together the crib, moving the glider in there and we have nursery furniture (a desk and a dresser) scheduled to arrive in July.
Best Moment this Week: Hearing that our fetal echo was a completely normal study. Seeing him all flipping around on the follow up ultrasound and hearing that everything looks great.
What I Miss: Still nothing, I’m doing fine…I don’t really miss booze all that much and I’m not limiting what I eat, just making good choices.
What I am Looking Forward To: Painting the nursery, starting to figure out a final name (we have one we’re leaning towards) and finishing up our registry
Milestones: Being halfway there!!!
Baby Milestones: He’s doing well, his heart is fine, all his parts look great. Seems like he’s doing what he’s supposed to in there.
Next Appointment: Jun 19th, just for a quicky with the OB. Nothing too exciting.
