Baby Lesh: 20 Weeks

{photo from a friend's wedding on Saturday}

How i'm feeling: Still so overjoyed and happy to have this little one growing in my tummy!  And feeling much better.  I feel like a new person now that the morning (all day) sickness has made it's exit. 

How far along: 20 weeks

Size of the baby: About the size of a banana (10 inches)

Total Weight Gain/loss: I haven't checked in a week, but it was about 2-3 pounds.

Maternity Clothes: My mom got me some fantastic maternity leggings for Christmas and I have started wearing those because they are so comfy.  The jeans and pants are still too big... but I am looking forward to wearing them :) 

Gender: a GIRL!

Movement: yes... it's absolutely amazing.  I love feeling her move and hiccup.

Sleep: It's hit or miss.  I usually wake up 3-4 times a night.  I figure this is just preparation for when she arrives.

What I miss: Taking hot baths, sushi, and guinness... but all worth it.

Cravings: still no big cravings.  I am just happy food sounds good again!

Symptoms: My uterus is growing and stretching and I never realized or thought that it would hurt.  I get cramps and some discomfort, but I have read and talked to other mamas that say it is completely normal.

Best moment this week: Picking out the paint, crib, curtains, and dresser for her nursery... we are so excited and have our old office completely cleaned out and ready to start filling.  These moments we have had picking everything out together have been so much fun.  But my favorite moments have been the excitement TL has when he touches my belly.

Looking forward to: Her big 20 week ultrasound is this week. I can't wait to see her again and learn more about how she is growing and developing.

I can't believe we are half way there!

I hope you have a great week!
Happy Monday.

You look so beautiful - pregnancy definitely agrees with you, girl!
You are beyond cute though with missing sushi and Guinness - my man would love you, I don't think he could part with Guinness if I paid him.
So happy for you - which is going to be restated constantly!
I meant to email you back because your post the other day made me tear up - you are the sweetest ever! xo
