How far along: 20 weeks…halfway mark! He’s the size of a banana. I love getting the email updates from Baby Center with the fruit size he is each week, I think it’s so cute!
Maternity Clothes? Yes and no. I have a pair of Gap maternity jeans that I’ve been wearing because they are sooo comfortable. I can still fit into my regular jeans (with help from the hair-tie trick and tummy tube) and pretty much all my tops still fit. I’m lucky that most my sweaters and tee’s are already over-sized. Bra’s on the other hand…holyyyyy. I need go buy a larger size AGAIN!
Cravings? Clementines….it doesn’t take me long to get through a bag of Cuties. And cinnamon raisin bagels with strawberry cream cheese. I seriously cannot get enough!
Exercise? Does walking to and from work count? I need to get back on the treadmill ASAP! I worked out a couple weekends ago and felt so sick after, it was the opposite of refreshing. I want to start going to the gym in the AM but laying in bed always seems like the better option at the time. Any one else on the work out struggle bus??
Baby movement? I can feel him moving around but it just feels like little bubbles. I’m excited to start feeling bigger kicks! One night I shot out of bed because I thought I felt two huge kicks, but I’m pretty sure I was just dreaming!
Sleep? Sleep was great until this last week. Now its lots of tossing and turning, can’t get comfortable and up at 5am. I have a body pillow on it’s way in the mail, hopefully that helps!
Missing anything? A glass of wine (or two) after work!
Milestones: Halfway there! We have our 20 week ultrasound on Monday…I cannot wait to see how big he’s got! Best moment this week: Feeling him move around and getting lots of baby gear in the mail! Our apartment is starting to get crowded. We are moving at the end of April into a two-bedroom so right now we don’t have much extra space. Boxes are starting to stack up and line the walls. I’m anxious to move and get the nursery set up! Feeling: Excited and a little overwhelmed. I hopped on Buy Buy Baby to start a gift registry and got MAJOR anxiety. Nipple cream? Breast pads? 20 different bottle brands? My head was spinning. It made me feel really unprepared, but my aunt re-assured me that all first time moms feel this way so not to worry! Kyle’s sister made us a list of all her favorite brands/must-have items which was super helpful!
