20 weeks

How far along? 20 Weeks – aka halfway!


Size of Baby? weighs around 10.5 oz, 6.5 inches from head to rump, and about 10 inches from head to heel. About as long as a banana.

Maternity clothes? Hit up a sale online at Old Navy and got a bunch of tops and a maxi dress, have some capris. For the most part I’m in scrubs all week at work, but I did have to get some new scrubs. My thighs and hips are expanding and I’ve ripped the crotch out of some of my scrubs… so to DI I went for some new, bigger scrubs. 😉 I’m not paying full price for new scrubs. Those things last forever and I haven’t had to buy new ones since I started working. If I’m getting new scrubs, it’s gonna be after baby gets here!

Weight Gain? just the right amount, thankyouverymuch.

Stretch marks? No new ones. YET.

Sleep: Doing better. If I wake up in the middle of the night I have trouble getting back to sleep, mainly because my mind starts to race about all the things I want to do to get ready for baby!

Best moment this week:  Our 20 week ultrasound and going to Buy Buy Baby and picking out our carseat and stroller.

Miss Anything? Coffee. the smell gags me, but I still miss it.

Movement: Nothing definitive. I sometimes think I can feel flutters and bubbles. But I’m not 100% sure. Sometimes I think I’m just imagining it. At our ultrasound, we found out that the placenta is anterior, which acts like a big pillow, so until he really starts kicking, I probably won’t feel it.

Food cravings: Sonic Diet Coke with cherry and lime. It’s like a drug. OMG. I’m trying to only get one or two a week, and will start getting regular coke. I’ve heard too much bad stuff about aspartame. And I’m still excited for the snow shacks to open this summer.

Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of coffee is gaggy. Nothing makes me sick

Gender: BOY!!!

Labor Signs: No way!

Symptoms: Some round ligament pain here and there, usually after I run.

Belly Button in or out? Still an innie.

Mood: Happy. Until I get pissed off. 😉

Looking forward to: Getting the nursery ready. Gonna be doing a little remodeling in the closets so we can have room for baby’s clothes and things.

    I love ultrasound pics! The profile pic is adorable. He will be as handsome as can be with beautiful parents like yourselves though. I am glad you are doing well. You look great. I hope you can get the rest of your main items purchased soon – then maybe the stress will start to fade. Or maybe once you start having showers (I better be invited! 😉 you will start to feel a little more relieved. We need to plan another lunch or fro yo date now with Megan and Rachelle.

      Buy Buy Baby is awesome. We plan on buying our stroller from Amazon, but it was great to go check it out in store and see how it worked. It was also great to check out all the different carseats. The store is owned by Bed Beth & Beyond, so imagine a store as big as that, FULL of baby stuff. It’s amazing. 🙂
