Bumpdate: 17-20 Weeks

Holy. Crap. I’m 20 weeks today. That’s halfway (well, if Skipper decides to come on time that is). I’m so incredibly grateful to be here. So I guess it’s time to do another one of these since I haven’t in a month.

16 1/2 weeks. Standing up straight, I can no longer see my feet. Love it!

How Far Along?
20 weeks today… woo-hoo!

Size of Baby? 10 inches, head to heel, and 10 1/2oz or the size of a banana

Maternity Clothes? Pants, yes. Tops, yup. For sure now.

Weight Gain? I was starting to worry when I had gone three months without weight gain, but the last two weeks I put on 2 1/2 pounds, so I’m sitting at 6 1/2 pounds total now.

18 1/2 weeks trying on a comfy sweater dress (ignore the white socks with it)

Stretch Marks/belly button? Not yet!

Baby’s Sex? Well, so far it’s a GIRL!  But hopefully we’ll get a confirmation at the anatomy scan next week.

Sleep? Still getting up once or twice a night to use the bathroom and it’s getting really hard to sleep on just my shoulders (due to previous surgery, I can only sleep on my left shoulder for a small amount of time, so my right shoulder gets awfully tired of being slept on).

Food Cravings? Nope, though I’m finally starting to be able to eat SOME sweet stuff again.

Best Moment This Week? Well, best moment this period was finding out the sex. I would say another best was finding out Skipper was ok after 105lb Lulu stepped directly onto  her =(

What I am loving? Still just loving having this opportunity to be pregnant and the fact that I’m obviously pregnant to those who don’t know me, either.

20 weeks. Again trying on a shirt. Needed something for our upcoming trip to Texas.

Movement? No, but I’m excited to… hopefully this week or next. She’s being stubborn. I *may* have felt something earlier this week, but I’m not entirely sure.

What I’m looking forward to: The anatomy scan and feeling movement. I really, really want to feel this baby.

Other Updates… We are starting to narrow down names and I hope to get a Top 10 from Huzzy (I have mine done) so we can put a Top 20 together and go from there. I also have the color of the nursery pretty much set (a light yellow) but still deciding on if we want other colors or what in there.
