20 Weeks - Half way there!!!

Posted Nov 16 2012 12:00am




I might have borrowed these from Danielle .  :)

How far along? 20 weeks 

Total weight gain:
 I haven't had a doctor's appointment in two weeks so I don't know exactly, but the scale at the YMCA has me up 11 pounds since I found out I was pregnant.  For this far along in the pregnancy, I'll take it.

Maternity clothes? I own two pairs of jeans, two leggings, two shirts, and a winter coat.  I hate the jeans, but it's my only option for work.  I can still wear most of my tops from before I was pregnant.

Stretch marks? No, and I'm hoping to avoid them.  I'm using some cocoa butter on the areas I know could be stretching and keeping those areas well moist.  Ha!

Sleep: I'm sleeping about as normal as before I got pregnant.  I still get  up 2-3 times a night to go to the bathroom but that's about what it was before I got pregnant.  I don't remember the last time I slept all the way through a night.  I am going to bed earlier than I was before I got pregnant, but it's also helping Dave get more work done if I go to bed before him.

Best moment this week: Finding out that another close friend is pregnant!!!

Miss Anything? Alcohol.  What I wouldn't do for a margarita!  Also, I can't wait to run fast again.


Movement: All the time.  It's not painful as the baby is positioned all below my belly button.  Right now it's super cute.

Food cravings: Kool aid and chocolate, but that's pretty much all I ate before I was pregnant too.  :)

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Gender: People sure don't like that we know and are not telling.  We love their theories on what the gender might be.  We've only heard one good theory and we were able to debunk that.
Labor Signs: Nope.  Let's keep it that way for at least another 19 weeks.
Symptoms: I don't know what this question means.  I have a big gut and I can feel the baby move.  What more symptoms do you need.
Belly Button in or out? Way far in.  I'm actually looking forward to it popping out so my stomach will stop looking like a butt.
Wedding rings on or off? I only recently started wearing a wedding band and it's very much on.  I'm only gaining weight in my belly and boobs, nowhere else.
Mood: I knew someone who was a complete bitch during her pregnancy so I'm trying to make a conscious effort to be in a good mood about the pregnancy.  One day this week, though, I had so much rage in my head that I worried what I might have said all day.  My job gets a lot more stressful through the holidays (I work in retail) so I'm trying to just stay relaxed.
Looking forward to: We're painting the baby's room this weekend and I'm looking forward to starting to get it set up.
