Pregnancy Update: 20 Weeks


20w 4d. I should stop taking my pictures at midnight!! I look SO exhausted in all of these pictures!!

How far along? 20 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 21 weeks today.)

Total weight gain/loss: 128.1 lbs! DAMN. I know. Need to cut down on that soda! That's the only difference from my pre-pregnancy to pregnancy diet. Womp womp.

Maternity clothes: In terms of tops, I can still wear the majority of my shirts... so long as I wear one of two workout tops I have. The workout tops ensure the girls stay where they belong and are long enough to cover at least half my bottom. In regards to bottoms, between two maternity jeans, one Lululemon Wunder Unders and one Victoria's Secret yoga pants... they're my only public-appropriate pieces that comfortable and don't hurt my low-lying child and me.

Stretch marks? Not yet... I'm really nervous! I seriously wonder when and where they'll appear! The veins in my breasts have started to become prominent though. Oh, no!

Sleep: Sleep has been fine. Although it's conforming, the Snoogle is so incredibly comfortable.

Best moment this week: I'm happy to have found a workout buddy who I can keep up with and who can keep up with me! It's lonely being halfway through my pregnancy with no one to talk to or distract me... Even though she flaked out on me today. Haha. S'ok! Atleast, I have Crissy and my brother!

Worst moment of the week: I have a very tender, slightly swollen spot beneath my left breast... and it hurts. Not sure why! It started causing me pain on Saturday afternoon.

Miss anything? Laying on my tummy is a sore spot. :(

Movement: Lots! Too bad Crissy has yet to really feel it kick!

Food cravings: Nothing per se, but for our one year anniversary, I wanted to toast the night with something salty and savory. Cristhian ordered buffalo chicken, steak & cheese and crab rangoon egg rolls and they were all delicious. DEF try!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope

Have you started to show yet: YES!

Gender Prediciton: 55 days until the baby shower!

Labor signs: No contractions, but I still feel Braxton Hicks every so often.

Symptoms: I've gotten migraines (thanks, mom!) repeatedly over the years, but these headaches are something else... It's much, much more mild and I can usually work through it- it's just annoying! Also, the infamous linea nigra, or chloasma, has started to show ever so slightly!

Belly button in or out? IN!

Wedding rings on or off? ON!

Happy or moody most of the time? Moody, but that's not due to the baby. Living situations are difficult, man!

Looking forward to: Crissy and I are hoping to start a registry at Buy Buy Baby. I'm pretty much regretting my registry at Babies R Us... We'll see!
