My Pregnancy: Week 20 (halfway mark)

I am TWENTY WEEKS PREGNANT today! *happy dance* Can you even believe it? I just want to yell it from the roof tops! I've been waiting for this moment, and it does feel just as amazing as I imagined. Last summer I was in such a low place, I was so depressed and unhappy. I feel like a completely different person now, and I know the hubs has noticed. I am happier, he is happier and Lucy is happier. Everyone is in a good place right now and it's all because of this miracle baby. By the way, we found out this week our miracle baby is a she. I am very excited for another little girl and Lucy was asking for sister so I'm glad we get to give her one! :)

How Far along? 20 weeks!

Size of the baby? she is about 10 1/2 ounces and 6 1/2 inches long.

Any new symptoms? regular braxton-hicks contractions now, return of weird dreams and mild headaches at night. Boo.

What are you craving? pickles, so cliche I know.

Total weight gain? 5 lbs

Baby Bump? is showing! I had my first stranger ask if I was pregnant over the weekend! :D

Movement? a ton of movement in the last 3 days. I can even get baby to kick on demand now if I lay on my back. lol. Guess it must squish her a little or something.

It's a GIRL!

Nesting? not too much this week, no.

Sleeping well? no, belly is getting bigger and it's hard to stay comfy throughout the night.

Buy anything for the baby this week? nope. But I did buy a blood pressure cuff for my prenatal care.

What are you looking forward to? I am looking forward to buying some clothes for this little one. I think about it all the time, I just want to SHOP. :)

What are you enjoying the most/least about being pregnant this week? I'm having fun picking the name and imagining my baby girl. I am not enjoying my horrible sleep.

  2. Congrats on the half way mark! YAY!!!
