The Everyday Baby: 20 week Bumpdate!

April 24, 2018

Officially 20 weeks with my sweet little babe and I cannot believe how quickly this pregnancy is going. Now, to be clear, the first trimester did not go quick. It dragged and dragged and dragged. But here we are at 20 weeks and I feel like time is flying. 

I am excited to say that I'm finally halfway through this pregnancy! I cannot believe I will see her in less time than I've been pregnant with her.  I haven't done much to prepare, but I feel like the nesting bug is going to kick in quickly. Last weekend, I did a big purge to goodwill, books to the library, organizing our closets and bathrooms. I'm getting ready for her!

We are so excited for this little babe and this growing life inside.

How far along: 20 weeks!
Name: We’ve had a name picked out for awhile now, but we are waiting to share until she’s born.  And yes, mom, that means you have to wait too!🙂
Size: Baby Girl is as big as a banana! About 6.50 inches and 10.1. However, at 16 weeks, we learned that baby girl is in the 90% percentile for weight and height so she might be a tad bigger! 
How I’m feeling: So. Much. Better. The first 14 weeks were so dang tough. I was sick, so tired and uncomfortable. I finally feel awake, hungry and ready to take on this pregnancy thing. However, last week was the first week I started feeling pregnant. Big boobs, big stomach, hard time sleeping, backaches and feeling very pregnant. 
Sickness: None! Bless.
Cravings: Super cold juicy fruit. All the fruit, grapes, pineapple, mangos, cuties, apples. Anything that is juicy, I want it all. Oh, and chipotle chicken burrito bowls. 
Aversions: None! Sometimes fish, but most of the time I'm good. 
Weight gain: 11 pounds. But it feels like 100. 

Physical changes: My bump is getting bigger! I swear every day I wake up and its a bit bigger. My boobs are amazon like and my skin is not glowing. 
Nursery: We painted her room pink last weekend and are furniture shopping this weekend! If you missed it, tune into my insta-stories for a little tour. 

Workouts: None yet. I'm still on bedrest but I'm hoping at my appointment next week they clear me for minor exercise! All I want to do is go for a walk with my dogs and husband. 

Movement: None yet. They told me because of where my placenta is I may not feel her until 22-24 weeks. I'm so excited to finally feel my little babe kick! 

Wedding rings on or off? On! Whoop!

Best moment this week: The back massage Adam gave me. 

Looking forward to: Our 21 week anatomy scan next week! 

Pregnancy purchases so far:
These Target jeans are my FAV. Plus, they were on clearance for $10. 
Ingrid and Isabel Pregnancy Leggings. I am loving things that go OVER my bump. 
This Target Medela nursing bra. I can't with underwire anymore. 
Baby Wise and Bringing up Bebe. Here's hoping they help with sleep training and cool babes.
This pregnancy journal. I love blogging, but I love writing things down too.
