Baby M – 20 Weeks (HALFWAY THERE!!)

20 weeks

Bump Analysis? Pregnant and awkward smile – I don’t like taking pictures by myself!  Also, if this is only halfway there…I can’t imagine me at 40 weeks!

Month/Trimester? 5 months / 2nd Trimester! — Today is the halfway point of the pregnancy!! WOOHOO!!

Fruit of the week? Our baby is the size of a banana! 6.5 inches long and 10.2 ounces!

Development? Junebug now has working taste buds… so I should probably really start watching how many sweets I’m eating so she will like healthy food 🙂  She is also drinking several ounces of amniotic fluid a day, which is significantly higher than before.

Movement? I’m feeling lots of flutters and random kicks.  I can’t wait for it to be something I feel more consistently so hopefully Paul can catch it one time!! Right now it’s so sporadic he hasn’t felt anything.

Name? Aubrey Joy 🙂

Testing? Today we had our 20 week anatomy scan at the specialist.  They confirmed she was in fact a girl, and they did an echo on her heart.  They believe everything looks okay, but of course when the doctor tried to look, Aubrey wouldn’t cooperate.  They want us to go back in 5 weeks, and then hopefully they won’t need to see us again.

No pictures please!
No pictures please!

Weight Gain? 7 lbs…

Symptoms?  Lots of happy tears over here… all. the. time!

Cravings? Shrimp, hot dogs, pasta, and Dr. Pepper (shh don’t tell my doctor about the hotdogs or Dr. Pepper…)  Aside from the pasta – I rarely ate shrimp, and never ate hot dogs or drank pop (or soda whatever you want to call it), so all of these cravings are just weird to me.

Aversions? Buffalo Chicken Dip

Sleep? Pretty sure I wake up 1,000 times a night…

Maternity Clothes? Still just a few maternity shirts, but my pants are becoming pretty uncomfortable…

Wedding Rings? ON!

Stretch Marks? Don’t say that word around here…

Labor Signs? Praying not to have these anytime soon!

What I miss? I’m too excited to miss anything right now 🙂

Looking forward to? Paul and I started working on the nursery, and put the crib together this past weekend!  I am so looking forward to seeing it all come together!!! Right now I keep walking in her room and envisioning it all put together, with her in it!! Then I go open her closet, because I’m basically obsessed with her clothes (my daughter has a better wardrobe then I do already and she only has a few outfits!) Seeing baby things coming into our house is helping make it feel more real… this is actually happening!  And then I cry happy tears… because those are common here these days!

      Aw yay!! I’ll be following your journey too! And it looks like you can inspire me fitness wise! I’ve been super slacking since morning sickness hit and then I am just so sporadic!
