20 Weeks

How Far Along:
20 weeks - October 20 - 26, 2013
 
Size Of Baby?


  
Maternity Clothes?

I did manage to wear a pair of pre-pregnancy yoga pants, and some shirts this week that were pre-pregnancy and pre-weight loss and they were still too big, but comfy. It's been such a chilly damp week so far, I was beginning to regret not buying more long sleeve shirts, but then one of my sisters neighbours sold me some her mat clothes:
1 t-shirt, 1 sweater, 1 3/4 sleeve, 4 long sleeve tops, 2 pairs of pants all for $40!! Steal!! They are all in great shape! 

I also ended up wearing a pair of pre-pregnancy skinnies, which were too big, yet too small all at the same time! I ends up with button for the pants below my belly, but were too big everywhere else! My mat jeans were all being washed! 
Luckily they looked alright, but lets just say I don't plan on doing that again! 

 
Stretch Marks?
None yet.
 
Gender?
We will find out in March!
  
Sleep?
Much better! Getting up at least once a night to use the bathroom, but managing to fall back to sleep. I actually feel rested when I awake because I'm allowing myself to sleep however I end up! Thanks to everyone's advice, and I will still discuss it with my OB next week.
 
Cravings/Aversions?
How do pregnant women survive around Halloween? I just want to eat all this candy! And donuts - they made their way home this week!
 
Movement?
Yes and I am loving it all!! M has been trying to feel the baby, but its still subtle to feel on the outside. But M thinks he may have felt it twice on Sunday night. The baby was going crazy, so I got my Doppler out to confirm it was indeed the baby and sure enough it was. I called M up and that's when he thought he felt it! Then Friday night I felt the baby from the outside, but when M put his hand on my belly the baby stopped! The baby also was kicked when Lux got my belly. 

Feeling?
Soo much better. I still get tired by 9:00 at night if I don't nap, which I am trying not to! 

Highlights:
Being 20 Weeks!!! Half way there!!

It also fell on the 20th of October, which is kind of ironic! Feels great to have crossed this milestone!!

We took M's parents out for Chinese for their anniversary and these are messages we got from our fortune cookies:

How fitting!! 
 
We also registered for the baby on Saturday! So happy to have that big job off the list!

Belly Button?
In
 
Best Moment of the Week?
Hitting the 20 week mark!! Baby is developing at rapid speed! 


Crazy Pregnancy Moment:
- more blood work this week to see how my thyroid is doing off my medications.


 I also lost track of my feet: 
Guess where the baby was sitting? Haha

- dealing with fleas - turned me into a crazy clean freak, more so than usual if I am being honest!
 
Bump Pic:
 

It was cold and rainy out, hence the hair and bummy, dark appearance!! 
  
 
Looking Forward To:
- hearing all about our ultrasound results at next weeks appointment.

Half-way already?! congratulations! and kudos to you for dealing with the fleas the way you did, I don't know how I would've done that!

Yay for halfway! That's awesome that you were able to buy those used maternity clothes. Great buys! One of my favorite parts of pregnancy has been Dylan being able to feel the kicks. It's such a fun thing!

Halfway is such a great milestone!

That's great that you bought some stuff from your sister's neighbor. Funny, I wished I had more short sleeve stuff last time around since I was getting too hot in the long sleeve sweaters all the time. At least if you layer you can take something off if you get too warm. So I stocked up on short sleeves this time! I also have a million cardigans that I can wear.
