How far along? 20 weeks, 2 days!
Total weight gain/loss: +9.5lbs
Maternity clothes? YES. I only wear maternity pants. I just bought my first pair of maternity pajama pants but haven't worn them yet. I have been getting by with wearing most of my pre-pregnancy shirts and cardigans, but with the cooler weather this week I've mixed in some maternity light-weight sweaters.
Sleep: Still seems to be a little touch & go...every now and then I will wake up in the middle of the night and have trouble falling back to sleep. Still tired at times during the day. My Boppy sleeping pillow helps a lot to keep me from sleeping on my back.
Best baby moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat today! and hitting the 1/2 way milestone :)
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? It's not technically missing anything, but....I'm not really worried about the glucose test (which I found out my doctor does around 28wks) but I've been trying to be good and watch my sugar intake. Or at least, not over-do it. If I eat candy or plan on dessert, then I stick to just drinking water throughout the day instead of mixing in soda, coffee, or hot chocolate. Things like that. They may not have a huge impact, but they make me feel like I'm doing something good.
Movement: Yes! I was right when I thought I was feeling little kicks around 15 1/2 weeks, and they have gotten progressively stronger. Jake felt a couple for the first time a few nights ago!
Food cravings: Still pasta and anything peanut butter. Lots of milk and Chocolate milk! Also soup (which may just be this colder weather). And waffles!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still staying away from red meat (except pork) and Chinese food.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, a decent little bump :)
Gender: GIRL! Jake was right. Her name will be Ryleigh Marie.
Labor Signs: No, and better not for a while!
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy/tired. I do get emotional over sad or sweet things more than usual.
Looking forward to: getting around to the nursery! We've selected furniture and have a good plan for most of what it will look like (more to come on that soon)! I don't know if it's the early signs of nesting or just the designer in me.
