|20 Week Bump!|
I can't believe I am already half way done with this pregnancy! Time seems to fly by faster and faster with each pregnancy and I know baby girl will be here before we know it! I thought it might be fun to do a little questionnaire for this particular baby update--I always enjoy reading them on other blogs :)
How far along? 20 Weeks
Weight Gain: Oh, yes! Really, I'm right on track for weight gain. For my first two pregnancies I had a really hard time embracing my ever changing (and expanding!) waistline. This time around I feel so incredibly relaxed about the whole thing. Pregnancy really is a beautiful time and it's so brief. It's felt really good to just sit back and enjoy the changes that are happening to my body.
Maternity Clothes: Definitely. Honestly, I had to start wearing stretchy pants by week 10! Haha--my uterus pretty much was like, "Ohhhh right, yeah I've done this before." ;)
Stretch Marks: (Knock on wood) Not yet! I didn't get any stretch marks with Lily either. I think my body did all it's stretching the first time around :)
Sleep: This baby has not caused me any sleepless nights as of yet. My almost 4 year old on the other hand...that's another post for another day ;)
Exercise: Chasing after 2 kids every day counts right?!
Best Moment of this Week: Having my 20 week ultrasound and seeing this precious girl up close! We decided to take Jack with us to the appointment and I'm so glad we did. He loved seeing the baby move around and was so fascinated by the whole thing!
Miss Anything: Not yet...but ask me again in another few months :)
Movement: I feel little kicks from time to time which is fun. She's about the size of a tomato so the kicks don't really pack to much of a punch...yet.
Food Cravings: Red bell peppers and sour jelly beans. Not at the same time :P
Anything making you queasy or sick? Every once in awhile the smell of cooked meat will get to me and any lotions or perfumes that have a strong fragrance are a no go for me.
Have you started to show yet: Yes! I noticed a big jump from 12 to 16 weeks. She just keeps growing and growing every week and I love it!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button In or Out: In
Wedding Ring On or Off: On
Happy or Moody Most of the Time: I will say that my least favorite part about the whole pregnancy experience are the hormonal changes. Normally I'm a pretty easy going gal, but when I'm pregnant I'm just a bit more...spicy! However, with all that being said I would say I'm happy most of the time. :)
Looking forward to: A family trip to Carlsbad at the end of May and in July I'm whisking the hubby away for his birthday...I'm not telling him where we're going until the day before we leave! :)
