How far along? 20 weeks
|Week 20: Your baby is the size of a banana (source)|
Total weight gain/loss: I worked out all week, but I was bad this weekend and ate out at restaurants Saturday and Sunday. I ended up gaining 4lbs (according to my scale this morning). So that's 9lbs total. I think with my working out and eating homemade meals this week I'll lose or get back on track.
Maternity Clothes? Oh ya. packed up the summer clothes and included winter clothes that won't work for a baby belly. Those are in storage. I left room in my closet for my recent online purchases from JCPenny and Zulily.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep? I sleep ok, but not for very long. I'm usually up by 5am tossing and turning. When I use the restroom I can fall back asleep, but it doesn't feel like I need to use the restroom so I rarely get up to do so. Poor hubby is a light sleeper, so as soon as I'm awake, so is he.
Best moment this week: Co-hosting a baby shower for my sister-in-law and blogging about it! Also helping out my church and meeting with my youth group.
Miss Anything? COFFEE. It's fall and it's cold out, a nice warm cup of coffee would be awesome on my drive to work. Instead I drink a bottle of room temperature water.
Food cravings: none. My taste buds have changed! Things I would just LOVE in the past, are 'ok' now. It's so disappointing! Nothing tastes AMAZING.
Anything making your queasy or sick? Still can't eat big meals. Packing lots of healthy snacks to snack on throughout the day.
Have you started to show yet? Oh ya. But not in a cute basketball belly kind of way - it's more like a "woah, you've put on weight all in one place" kinda of way :(
Symptoms: Sciatic pain and can't be on my feet all day.
Labor signs: none
Belly button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? Engagement ring on.
Happy or Moody most of the time? I say happy. The fall and winter are my favorite seasons. I just LOVE Christmas, so I'm in a great mood. I think I need to start pretending that I'm paying for daycare now so I'm not stretched for cash come the summer.
Looking forward to: Thanksgiving and being surrounded with family and friends. I'm also looking forward to my maternity clothes to come in!
