How far along: 20 weeks!
How big is baby: About the size of a banana… 6.5 inches long and weighs 10.2 oz…
Gender: We find out this week and are having a little gender reveal for our friends and family on Sunday. SO EXCITED!
Movement: Baby is definitely moving but I still cannot feel it consistently and not with a lot of confidence.
Sleep: Still sleeping great! Thanks to my 1/4 sleeping pill and vitamin B6 combination. I have had a few nights where it has taken longer for me to get comfortable and actually fall asleep but once I’m sleeping, I stay sleeping.
Symptoms: Still lots of pelvic pain and lower back pain. I’ve started turning our heated blanket on high and just sitting on it for 20 minutes at a time. I am still fighting a cold – same one from last week I hope – combined with pregnancy congestion. It’s not pretty when I wake up. I definitely have a bigger appetite and find myself hungry all. the. time.
Cravings/Aversions: Chicken = blegh. I find myself choosing vegetarian options all the time. Red meat I can still handle. Still loving fresh fruit and veggies (carrots!). I am not eating fruit as often because the sweetness makes my mouth taste real weird afterwards – it drives me crazy.
Maternity clothes: Still in my regular clothes but ordered some maternity leggings on black Friday. I am also looking to order some maternity jeans soon but I need recommendations.
Workouts: Not so much. I started adding squats here or there throughout the day to try to get back into it. But no regular workouts because of the pelvic pain.
Nursery: No progress this week but I did clean off my desk!
Missing anything: Nope!
Looking forward to most: Gender reveal this weekend! Can’t wait to see all our friends and family and for them to find out the gender with us!
Worries/Concerns: Halfway there! No worries or concerns – praise God! I am looking forward to my next Dr. appointment though – starting my list of questions now.
