20 Weeks - Pregnancy #3
Each Sunday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week. I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly. I did this with my pregnancies with both Hadley and with Jack, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.
How far along: 20 weeks -- HALF WAY!
Size of baby: Baby Girl is 6 1/2 inches long (crown to rump), 10 inches crown to feet--the size of a banana
Total weight gain/loss: As of my last appointment a couple of weeks ago, I'm 6.5 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight. I have been eating like a maniac, and I feel huge.
Maternity clothes: Pajamas and comfy shirts/sweats. Occasionally, I'll put on the maternity jeans and maternity shirts, but I mostly stay cozy. It did warm up the other day, and I actually put on a spring-like dress.
Gender: A sweet baby girl :)
Movement: Mostly I feel movements in the evenings, but I've been feeling them more throughout the day lately. She'll kick or move while I nurse Jack, and I think she's saying, "Hey! You're in my space!" I wonder if he can feel her? :)
Sleep: Eh. Sleep. It's for the weak. Actually, I really miss it, and I'm hoping the Snoogle pillow my mom ordered for me helps out a bunch in that department.
What I miss: Sleeping on my back.
Cravings: Sweets and salty things. In that order :).
Symptoms: Unpleasant mood swings. Highly impatient/irritable one minute. Happy and loving everything the next.
Exercise: Um, does doing squats and lunges in the bathroom while I wait for my shower to warm up count?
Belly Button in or out: Ugh. It's protruding slightly, and it's grossing me out. Can I tape it to keep it in??
Wedding ring on or off: On :)
Happy or moody most of the time: This week has been a mostly-happy week :)
Looking forward to: Seeing her during our ultrasound/growth scan this week!! Please pray it goes smoothly. My nerves are shot.
