I know I owe ya’ll an update, last update was oh at 16 weeks when I told ya’ll about my big announcement.
Yes, we have found out the sex and I just haven’t come up with a fun way to tell you guys!
We’ll here I am at 20 weeks.
I thought my loose fitting shirt wasn’t a great picture so I changed into a more fitting tank so you can see the bump. (and you can definitely see those bags under my eyes too)
Ok so here’s the stats…
This week, Baby is the size of a: Banana according to babycenter.com and is about 10 1/2 oz and 6 1/2” long.
How far along? 20 weeks
Due date: February 21, 2013
Total weight gain/loss: at my last appointment on 10/18 I was surprised to hear I had gained only 2 lbs. Yesterday I had to go in to check on some bleeding and I jumped up 5 lbs! So I’m at a total of 7 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I have them but haven’t been using them just yet, I can still get by with my regular jeans just not buttoned, you know ya’ll have used the rubber band trick right!
Sleep: Not as much as I would like to get. A nap would be nice haha. I’m sleeping ok, some nights getting up either once to walk off a leg cramp or to pee.
Best moment this week: Getting to see my lil one on an ultrasound, it was a little unexpected. I didn’t have an appointment but had to go in to get checked so it was nice to get to see an ultrasound. Doctor says we have a modest baby.
Movement: Not as much as with my son or it could be too early to really compare. Feeling tiny little bumps and pops mostly during the day and not too much at night.
Food cravings: Desserts! This past week I’ve had chocolate pie, Oreo McFlurry, what else… maybe that’s why the scales tipped 5 more lbs this past doctor’s visit!
Symptoms: Thankfully the morning sickness has slowly but surely gone away. I am getting better with that thing they call…hmmm… patience? LOL
Gender: What do you guys think?? Any ideas on how I should tell ya’ll??
Labor Signs: Nope, and because of my check up yesterday, I know for sure that I am not dilating or effacing. That is one feeling I could have done without till the day I went into labor!
Belly Button in or out? still in
Feeling toward Pregnancy: Now that I am feeling better, I am getting excited and anxious about all the things I want done before the baby comes. I’m having mixed emotions about bringing another child into the mix and feeling nostalgic about my first born baby. Thankfully talking to other mothers I guess the things I’m feeling are pretty normal.
What I miss: Not feeling bloated!
What I am looking forward to: Getting my son’s big boy room ready for him to move into and then getting the nursery ready.
Milestones: Half way through baby!! I don’t know if that makes me more excited or more anxious. I’m also feeling very relieved to find out my placenta has gone into the right place. At an earlier appointment the doctor showed concern for a very low placenta, then I had bleeding the other night but the last two checks and ultra sounds show that my placenta is in the right place and I do not have placenta previa. I do have what they call a friable cervix so it can get injured easily.
I cant believe I just talked bleeding, placenta and cervix on my blog!! Yikes!
We’ll there it is I can’t believe the countdown will begin soon since we’ve hit the halfway mark!
