It’s been an exciting few weeks! The wedding was perfect, Mike and I got to relax and spend some much needed “us time” together (for a whole week) and as soon as we got back, we had baby’s gender scan! We’re happy to share that we’ll be welcoming a little baby GIRL in February! We’re finally settling back into life. Here are a few photos from the past weeks (and a 20 week baby update)… I’ll make sure to share photos from the wedding and honeymoon soon!
How far along? Sunday will be 21 weeks… I can’t believe I’m half way!
Total weight gain: 2.8 pounds
Maternity clothes? I’ve been wearing maternity shirts for a few weeks… and they’re finally starting to look right! My belly is getting bigger and I feel like I’m FINALLY starting to look pregnant and not just bloated! Still wearing my pre-pregnancy jeans thanks to my belly band!
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Still sleeping pretty well… still having really bizarre dreams! This past week I’ve been a little bit more tired. I’m thinking maybe baby is going through a little growth spurt!
Best moment this week: I can feel her moving around in there SO much more these days! It’s such an amazing feeling… I find myself smiling when she moves.
Miss anything? Sushi. Still craving sushi like crazy!
Movement: At least 3-4 times a day… and all over! Sometimes high up and sometimes way down low, but I love every single move!
Food cravings: Carbs. Anything with carbs. I’m still having a hard time eating though… especially now that baby girl is growing so much. I feel full ALL the time, so I just have to eat really little portions several times a day.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, not really. I still can’t eat much meat though… if I do, it has to be part of something else, like a sandwich or mixed in with soup.
Symptoms: Just a lot of fullness… I’m not tall, so it feels like everything is jammed inside of me and sometimes it gets really uncomfortable. Other than that, it’s been pretty breezy!
Looking forward to: My baby shower! I can’t wait for my house to be filled with all kinds of little baby things!
