Week 20

How far along? 20 weeks-hard to believe you're already half baked!

How big is baby? A cantaloupe or banana (lengthwise crown to rump)- 6 1/2 inches and 10 1/2 ounces. The little bugger is putting on more weight than length this week!

Total weight gain/loss: Ugh...I'm up 1.5 lbs from last week.

Maternity clothes? I haven't bought any more, but there is no way my normal pants will fit without my Belly Band. I'm excited for my BellaBand to come tomorrow. 

Sleep: It's been going really well, except for last night. 

Best moment this week: Realizing there is an actual, brick and mortar loth diaper store near us! I feel like an idiot. Diaper Junction is actually located in VA Beach-about a 45 minute drive for us. I'm excited to see about taking a cloth is diapering class and deciding exactly what is best for us. 

Movement: Very active. If we had good timing, I'm sure the hubster would be able to feel it. It'll come, though. 

Food Cravings: Same old, same old. 

Food Aversions: Just bananas. 

Gender: We find out on Friday...I'm afraid I'm starting to realize something. I've bern having more and more thoughts lately about it being a girl. I don't want to think or feel this way, but I'm afraid I just want it to be a girl. I always assumed I'd end up with a boy, and that would make me happy, but I'm afraid at the back of my mind, I want a girl. I don't want to want either in particular, so this is difficult for me. 

Labor Signs: I think I actually may be starting to experience some Braxton Hicks contractions-but it could have also been the way I moved. I was driving-and had to pee-and my belly got very tight for about 5 minutes. It didn't hurt. It happened again much later in the evening. 

Pregnancy Symptoms: Now that I'm not sick feeling (not morning sickness, just really actually sick) I feel amazing. I think some of that second trimester energy is kickin in. 

Belly Button in or out? In, but I also noticed today it was a little more shallow than previously. It still has a long way to go. 

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach. I can still do it some, but it's becoming increasingly difficult. I definitely need to through one leg over a pillow and sleep on an angel. 

What I am looking forward to: Finding out the sex on Friday-and telling the world as soon as we get our pictures back from Beth. We're also going to start our Babies R Us registry Friday. I almost started it today, but I knew it was better to wait to do it with Nick. We're also going to start our registry that day. Let's face it-it's pretty much already done in my head, I just need Nick's input on what he cares about and a zappy gun. 

Upcoming appointments/events: Anatomy Scan and 20 week appointment on Friday. 

Milestones:Movement has become more and more consistent.

I had a strong feeling what I was having. Right before the reveal I got a little worried about if its the other. Of course either gender is great! The big u/s is such a neat experience, have fun!
I changed my blog theme. It might be an interest to you. Stating my favorite things. Some baby item stuff and whatever.
