We're Halfway There

I can't believe I'm at the halfway point of this pregnancy. That means there are only 20ish weeks until Bebe arrives, of which I've got maybe another 10-12 good weeks until third trimester fatigue and discomfort hit. Yikes.

I'm feeling more connected with the baby and I'm feeling more pregnant, too. The movement, yoga, and the big 20 week ultrasound have helped me focus. D & I have been figuring out sleeping arrangements, baby clothing storage, and what we want to pull out from storage. All of these things are making it seem more real. I haven't been posting as many updates as I would like this pregnancy, but you can follow me on Instagram for more snippets of my pregnant life.

How far along:

20 weeks!

Total weight gain:

-11 pounds. First trimester nausea and food aversions caused me to lose weight.

Maternity clothes:

Pants for sure, some non-maternity tops and sweaters still fit if they're long enough.

Sleep:

I will pass out by 10pm if no one wakes me up. Sleeping pretty well, but the crazy pregnancy dreams have started.

Miss anything:

Champagne on New Years Eve

Movement:

Oh yes. Lots of it. Bebe didn't like all the coughing and sneezing when I was sick, he/she let me know!

Food cravings:

fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, apples, oranges, Cobb salad (no meat other than eggs & bacon), french fries

Anything making you queasy or sick:

Still not a big fan of beef or chicken, but it's getting better.

Have you started to show yet:

Yep

Gender:

Surprise baby

Labor signs:

None. Not even Braxton Hicks yet.

Belly button in or out:

In. It never popped out with E, so I don't expect it to pop out with this one.

Wedding rings on or off:

On, I don't have swelling. Yet.

Happy or moody most of the time:

Moody. Commercials make me cry all the time.

Looking forward to:

 My sister coming to visit in a few weeks!
