20 Week Bumpdate

Monday, September 30, 2013

How Far Along:
20 Weeks
Size of Baby:
A Banana
Total Weight Gain:
10 pounds
Stretch Marks:
Nope
Maternity Clothes:
Yup
Gender:
Boy
Movement:
Yes!
I first felt movement between 18 and 19 weeks, and it's only gotten stronger since.
It feels like little twitches or spasms in my stomach. I feel it most often at night when I'm relaxing, but lately I've started feeling baby Jacob more often throughout the day.
Sleep:
I still wake up a couple times during the night to use the bathroom, but other than that I sleep fine.
What I miss:
Wine.
Food Cravings:
Sugar. Chocolate. 
This isn't that far off from how I am normally though.
Food Aversions:
Not really
Symptoms:
Headaches occasionally. Insane appetite. 
What I'm Looking Forward To:
The holidays :)
I'm excited to pregnant during the holidays. 

Halfway there!
Time seems to be flying by now!
Everything has been going good and I feel great. 
My bump just keeps on growing, and every week I am surprised by how much bigger it is.

I've gained about 10 pounds so far, which from what I'm told is exactly where I want to be at this point in my pregnancy. I've been putting on weight at a slow and steady pace, which makes me really happy.
I definitely eat more than I did before I was pregnant, but as long as it's less than my husband I feel like I'm doing ok!

I'm super excited for fall because we have lots to look forward to in the upcoming months. 
One of my closest friends its coming out to visit in two weeks, and I can't wait to show her around Italy! We also have a short girls trip to Paris planned, which I am definitely looking forward to.
Jacob and I have been working on the nursery, and it's coming along great. 

Bring on the cold weather and pumpkin-flavored everything, I'm ready!
