Halfway!!!!!! Yippee!!! Never thought this day would come back when I was nauseated at all times and barely strong enough to walk across the room. Wow!
I think it’s funny how depending on what I am wearing, what I have been eating, etc. it can change how I look. For instance, I think I look smaller than last week, and way smaller than at my gender reveal party last weekend. Granted, at the party I was wearing a white shirt, and I had been at the hospital for 3 days with my dad sitting on my butt eating fast food, so I’m sure that made me look puffy, too. Also, some shirts don’t go “in” under your boobs so they kind of make a tent from boob to belly making me look bigger. New observations abound I tell ya.
Symptoms: More of the same (I know, I am ssooo exciting). Round ligament pain when I run or even power walk, acne, tired, peeing a lot, noticing I just get run down more easily than I used to.
Baby’s Size: Banana!
Maternity Clothes: Nothing new, still haven’t even worn all the ones I have yet!
Stretch Marks: Just the boobs. Hang on belly!
Sleep: Pretty good, I pee a LOT right before I go to bed, but then usually only have to get up once in the middle of the night.
Miss Anything?: sleeping on my stomach for sure.
Cravings: Not really a lot in particular other than sweets, haven’t really noticed!
Aversions: still can’t eat large portions of meat or chicken.
Looking Forward to: picking out a name! Registry shopping! It’s time for the fun stuff.
What I’m Loving: Finally knowing that baby M is a GIRL!!!! Also, this is the first week I have felt baby kick! I can recognize it now, an is usually at night when I lay down and am very still. Exciting!
Workouts: This week was pretty bad. I was at the hospital Wednesday-Friday then the party Saturday, Mother’s day Sunday. I did work out Monday and Tuesday though, so starting the week off right!
There is my 20 week update in a nutshell (help! I’m trapped in a nutshell!) I will be back in the next few days talking names and registering All scary things for this first time mama!
QOTD: Did you ever feel you were smaller some weeks than the previous week when you were pregnant?
What is your favorite non running workout?
