How far along? 20 weeks! I seriously can't believe we're finally half way there!
Baby is a: Boy! Next week we have our anatomy scan, so hopefully that will just be confirmation that he's still a boy, haha!
Size of the Little One? He's the size of a banana, about 6.5-7 inches long and approximately 10-11 oz.
Total weight gain/loss: About 4 pounds, so far.
Maternity clothes? I'm still managing to just use maternity bottoms. Some of my regular tops are starting to get a bit tight. So, we'll see how much longer I'll be able to last.
None, so far. Been using Burt's Bees Mama Bee Body Oil and Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lotion for Stretch Marks, so hopefully that will help me avoid them!
Symptoms: The occasional 36 hour headache, ugh! And acne breakouts like I'm a high schooler all over again!
Sleep: Is still pretty good. It's a little harder to fall asleep, but when I'm asleep I'm out. Thankfully constant peeing has never been an issue so I definitely get my 6-8 hours of sleep!
Miss Anything? Nope! Loving this chapter of our lives!
Movement: Yes! I was so nervous that I was going to have to wait till like 22 weeks to feel something, but he started moving when I was 18 weeks and 4 days! Just this past week, he has started moving more and I love it! It's hard not to smile every single time I feel him wiggling around in there. I will say it didn't feel like flutters or butterflies at all, like I've read some people describe it as. He definitely gently pokes and nudges me, and when he's moving a lot, they feel like painless muscle spasms.
Food cravings: None!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really. I've been pretty fine this month.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, definitely starting to get a little bump!
Belly Button in or out? In, but it's getting close to flat!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy!
Looking forward to: Letting Jason feel the baby! I keep trying every day to see if I can feel it on the outside, but no luck yet!
Best Moment? Feeling the baby! Having the constant reminder that there's a little person growing inside of you is so overwhelming and exciting, and in a way it becomes even more real that we're that much closer to embarking on the journey of parenthood and meeting our sweet, little man.
