20 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 20 Weeks

Size of baby: Turtle is the size of a cantaloupe

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained 11.5 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: I LOVE my maternity clothes. I can still wear a few regular shirts/sweaters but I definitely prefer all maternity clothes.

Gender: It's a GIRL! We found out at our 20 week appointment (the day before Thanksgiving). It was by far my most favorite blood work AND an ultrasound to determine it's a girl!

Movement: More and more flutters. Mike was able to feel a kick/jab the other night.

Sleep: Depends on the night. Some nights I wake up to pee once or to re-situate and other nights I sleep all the way through.

What I miss: Nothing really. Getting a good nights sleep consistently.

Cravings: Still craving sweets and Moes. And Thanksgiving dinner food!

Symptoms: I've been super hungry this past week...growth spurt maybe? I've also been experiencing a lot of pressure. Its not really a painful pressure just an uncomfortable pressure. I mentioned this to the midwife at our appointment and she said it could be my pelvis/pubic bone separating. OUCH! It's crazy to think that my body is repositioning bones and muscles.

Best Moment this week: There were so many best moments this week. We got a crib and dresser last weekend. We found out that we're going to have a daughter and got to feel Brooke kick. We got lots of ultrasound pictures and got to hear her heartbeat (139).
We're officially half way to meeting our daughter!!!! I thought our 20 week appointment would never come and now I can't believe we're already half way finished!

  3. Woo hoo!!! And Moes it the best while pregnant! I went 1-2 times a week. What is it about it?

  4. Still so excited for you guys. It's a new day everyday, huh? (It's will be a new day everyday once she's here, too!) xoxo
