How far along? 20 1/2 weeks
Baby Size: A banana!
Total weight gain: 12 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yes… They make life so much easier. Motherhood Maternity actually has some cute maternity clothes.
Food cravings: Sugar in general. Cookies, cake, pop tarts, cereal. All the things I shouldn’t be eating.
Feeling: I’m finally feeling much better! I’ve had more energy, and I haven’t been as sick.
Sleep: I haven’t had more than 3 hours of sleep a night in the last couple of weeks. People tell me it’s mother nature preparing me for sleepless nights. I think it’s just that I’m getting bigger and it’s hard to get comfortable. He also moves a lot at night which doesn’t help with the whole sleep thing.
Miss Anything? My old body? haha I love my baby belly, but I have a feeling that when the end is near, I will be so ready for him to get out so I can get back to my normal self. It’s getting harder to bend.
Movement: A lot! I am loving every minute of it! It feels like he is doing flips some days, and others it is just a lot of tapping. Kicks aren’t super strong yet, but I love feeling him move. It’s the coolest thing.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! Not anymore!
Looking forward to: Starting on the nursery! We finally picked out our colors and bought paint this past weekend! I’m so ready to buy the baby furniture and get the ball rolling.
Bump: Oh my! I started showing very early (around 10 weeks) and have been growing non-stop ever since. It’s pretty weird because my friends who are due around the same time as me are still barely showing. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen pictures of my growing belly. Luckily I’m all belly (so far) and haven’t gained any inches any where else! 🙂 Let’s hope it stays that way for a while.
Exercise: I’ve still been walking a lot and I’ve been swimming a couple of times. I’d love suggestions on pregnancy workouts!
Our baby boy’s name is:
