How Far Along: 20 weeks (pic: I think 20w0d? It was this week…)
Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Cantaloupe (that’s certainly what it looks like I’ve got under my shirt)
Total Weight Gain: Only down 1.5 lbs. Progress!
Sex: Still a girl
Movement: Finally! Kellen and I were laying in bed last Saturday morning, and I felt what was definitely a kick on my belly. She practiced kicking me a lot, and by Thursday, Kellen could feel her, too, no problem. She’s not shy or still! So happy. 🙂
Sleep: I’ve been sleeping so much. At first I thought it was jet lag and being sick, but I’ve been hitting the sack pretty early every night since the beginning of our vacation and can easily sleep 10+ hours a night. That’s really unusual for me. I guess pregnancy is finally catching up to me…or maybe my body is just trying to enjoy sleep while it still can?
What I miss: Being able to lean forward without feeling uncomfortable.
Cravings: Buttery biscuits with lingonberry preserve! OMG! So delicious!
Symptoms: I actually had some things I wanted to put here, but now I can’t remember what they were. Oh! That was one of them. I can’t remember anything. I’ll be talking and mid-sentence, I’ll completely forget what I was talking about.
Emotions: The waterworks have started. First it was crying over shelter animals (which is normal for me, but not to keep crying about it off and on for an entire day.) Then it was non-stop over all the bad news we got at our 20 week scan (again, probably not that weird, but still weird for me.) Then it was characters in TV shows not being loved enough. Then it was a little girl in a YouTube video. I swear. I’m like a walking pregnancy cliche.
Maternity Clothes: Yes.
Best Moment this week: Feeling kicks! And also making a Chewbacca diaper cake for my friends’ baby shower next weekend. Baby things are so tiny and cute! Add them to the list of things that make me tear up.
