How Far Along: 20 weeks, 1 day - halfway! Baby boy is officially 50% cooked.
Baby's Size: According to babycenter, he is approximately the length of a banana and weighs somewhere around 10 ounces.
Total Weight Gain: Up a total of 6 lbs at my 16 week appointment. My guess would be somewhere around 10 pounds at this point (hopefully no more!)
Maternity Clothes? A few. Starting to wear more preggo pants now to accommodate the growing bump. Still wearing a few pairs of pre-pregnancy bottoms, but only with a belly band for additional tummy room! Trying to wait until I get a little bigger to stock up on more maternity clothing - hoping some cuter stuff will be coming out for spring. Winter maternity clothing is blah.
Best Moment This Week: Receiving the bookshelf for baby boy's room! Yay! (But then being disappointed, as it was damaged during delivery and will have to be returned. Boo.)
Gender: It's a boy! And we do have a name - which I will share soon.
Movement: Think I'm feeling some little nudges here and there, but it's hard to tell. Hoping to really start feeling baby boy move in the coming week or two.
Food Cravings: Carbs. Of any variety. Fruit. Gummy bears. Applesauce. Sour cream 'n onion potato chips. Cranberry juice. Cheese.
Food Aversions: Anything coffee scented - gag. Vegetable cream cheese (which I usually love). Fresh garlic. Cream sauces.
What I Miss: Coca Cola (the caffeine!) My waistline. Turkey sandwiches (the deli meat!) Getting through a whole day without being tired. Taking our evening walk without feeling winded going up the hills. Shopping - for regular clothes.
Sleep? Sleeping has become a little more difficult lately. It's hard to get comfortable, and I almost never sleep all the way through the night anymore. Thankfully, I have more energy now that I'm in second trimester than I did during the first. But, I can tell you right now, third trimester will not be fun.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Our 20 week appointment this week! Can't wait to see our little man on ultrasound, hear his heartbeat and get an update on how he's growing.
