Halfway There~ 20 Weeks!

Sunday, March 25, 2012

How far along? 20 weeks! Officially halfway, or 5 months; this is really flying by!
Due Date: August 11, 2012
Total weight gain: Back to the weight I started in Week 8, so I've now gained the 5 pounds I had lost
Maternity clothes? Not yet, but the Maternal America maternity jeans I got from Sugar are seriously comfortable...I think I may wear them from now on haha
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: I seem to still be falling asleep pretty easily and hope it continues!
Best moment this week:  Our trip to north Georgia wine country, although probably not the first place a pregnant woman would choose to go, we really just spent our time hiking around some of the trails in the Unicoi National Forest and shopping in the local boutiques. This is our last planned trip before the baby gets here unless we decide to take another one spur of the moment.
Miss Anything? Cuddling up on my tummy. I feel like I can't do it anymore without squishing the baby
Movement: I'm starting to feel her more and more. I think I was expecting to feel that without a doubt, Caroline was flipping around in there, but her movements seem to be more subtle most of the time.
Food cravings: I FINALLY GOT CHICKEN MINIS!!! Thank you Chattanooga, TN!
Anything making you queasy or sick: All the junk we ate on our trip left me seriously not wanting to eat out ever again. I loaded up on fruits and veggies as soon as we got home
Gender: Baby Girl
Symptoms: Still some pain in my lower back, feeling some movement, and it's possible that my "pregnancy brain" is kicking in....either that, or I'm as scatterbrained as I always have been but can now blame it on pregnancy ;)
Happy or Moody: Feeling very blessed each and every day.
Rings: On
Belly Button: In
Pregnancy Pet Peeve: I can't really think of one...
Looking forward to: We have a routine ultrasound this Thursday to check up little girl's progress. I can't wait to see her sweet little face for probably the last time until we see her in person, and I pray each and every night that she continues to grow healthy and that everything will be normal.
