20 Weeks

20 WeeksHow far along? OH MAN! It’s the half way point: 20 Weeks. Baby is about 6.5 inches from head to rump. I cannot even believe we are half way there! In case you missed last week, here’s my 19 week report.

Weight gain: Holding steady at 11 lbs.

Maternity clothes? I went to The Swanky Stork for the first time this weekend and was in Heaven…so many cute clothes for momma’s to be and they even have Kristalize jewelry. I picked up 3 adorable dresses, a necklace, and some linen shorts. In the outfit above I’m wearing a Pink Blush top, regular maxi skirt and a new Charming Charlie’s Outlet kimono.

Stretch marks? So far, so good!

Other Body Changes: Some of my more restrictive Lululemon pants are starting to feel really uncomfortable now. When I went running today for the first time in a couple of weeks, it felt like I was running with a bowling ball in place of my stomach…so heavy! Breathing while walking quickly or running is becoming a little harder. It feels like I’m 10x more winded than I should be.

Sleep: Pretty good, vast improvement over last week’s sinus issues.

Best moment this week:  Getting back to Pure Barre and exercising after taking about a week off due to the sinus crud.

Miss Anything? I’ve found out that when we go to Ireland for vacation in a bit that I’ll be missing out on quite a few things I hoped to do: horse back riding, pub drinks, shooting (apparently it’s too loud for baby? I had no idea that was a thing.), and potentially biking depending on how smooth the trails are.

Movement: I have felt “muscle twitches” which are supposedly Leyton, I guess? Still waiting for more definitive movement.

Food cravings: Arby’s curly fries or potato cakes, pretzel M&M’s, Greek yogurt and Sweet Tarts mini chews are all things I’ve just had to have this past week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No

Gender: boy

Symptoms: Finishing up my sinus issues, I hope! Muscle fatigue sooner than I would expect…taking breaks on runs, etc.

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Prayerful…lots of big things coming up!
Baby is the size of: a small cantaloupe

Looking forward to: Ireland!!
