How Far Along: 20 Weeks
We are half way there, whew whew!
Size of the baby: Well this week the "measurement" system changes a bit! It is currently the length of a banana, and the size of a cantaloupe.
Total Weight Gain/loss: Like normal...I don't weigh between doctor visits because well we don't have a scale. Plus it would probably only depress me. Past weigh in was 8lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Yep, and I took full advantage of the tax free weekend last weekend! Just a few new outfits for the school year.
Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby R arrives in January!
Movement: Well let me tell you what...he/she must be playing his/her own tennis match in there! This week he/she has been moving around like crazy. That may also be because now I can "officially" feel it all. Although my sister asked if I felt hiccups yet, not yet!
Sleep: Since I started working this week my sleep has been AMAZING! I am so pooped by the end of the day...on Wednesday I went to bed at like 7 and slept all night.
What I miss: This week I really have only missed one thing...NOT pregnancy related, but I still miss it! A NORMAL LUNCH!!! Having only 30 quick minutes for lunch for a pregnant person is crazy. Especially since that is my "larger" meal for the day!
Cravings: This week I can't say they are "healthy" ones, but I have been craving sweets. This is so NOT LIKE ME! I am not really a sweets person, but this week I can't get enough. I am loving strawberry sour punch straws! Tonight I had some good old chocolate pudding! HA, I do try to fight them off...but the cravings always seem to win.
Symptoms: Thursday night Baby R decided to do acrobatic moves all night! So we were up A LOT. If that's the worst I will take it. It made for a long Friday at school but we managed. I feel so blessed to have no pregnancy issues other than a little sleep loss.
Best moment this week: Really being able to feel the baby moving around. All thought I am sure I will not be so thrilled later on about all this! It makes me feel so happy! Chris was quizzing me on how it felt today, kind of a hard thing to explain to a guy.
