Where has the time gone?! 20 weeks already? I can't believe we are half way there with our little! It seems like just yesterday I was counting down the weeks to hit 12 weeks. Pregnancy has been an amazing journey and I feel like I've learned so much about my body already. What a miraculous miracle it is to carry a child. There's nothing like it. With that being said, there is also never a time in my life that I've felt more vulnerable. It's like I went into instant mommy mode :) I love looking back on other bloggers pregnancy updates and honestly love journaling what exactly I'm going through so I can look back so here I am again with a 20 week update!
Shop The Post:
☾✰ How far along?
20 weeks and counting! Going in for our 20 week anatomy ultra sound this Thursday. Fingers crossed the little is doing just perfect.
☾✰ How big is the peanut?
Baby is the size of a banana (or length) kind of a weird fruit to compare too ;) She's 10 1/2 oz. and about 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom. 10 inches long from head to heel.
☾✰ Total weight gain/loss?
7 lbs. at my last appointment. Which was about 3 weeks ago. We'll see what we are up to tomorrow! I don't have a working scale at home.
☾✰ Maternity clothes?
Not yet - but having a hard time wearing pants. I've been wearing skirts and sweat pants on the daily. I definitely need to get my hands on some maternity pants though! All my current pants are high waisted. Like I legit don't own a regular pair on pants. Otherwise I could just button them under the bump.
Sleeping pretty good. I'm a back sleeper so I've been propping up lots of pillows and sleeping really high lately. I've been having insane lucid dreams and it leaves me feeling pretty exhausted emotionally in the morning but at least I'm making it through the night??
☾✰ Best moment this week?
Baby girl kicked me so hard in the car that I shouted, "WOAH!" That was such an amazing moment! I've felt her a few other times but she got me good this time. I was also laying in bed drinking ice water and she moved a bunch every time I had a sip. That was the best thing ever too! Nothing like feeling her move.
Headaches, fatigue and blood sugar dropping super quick. I get headaches almost every night and feel tired most of the time. I also find that if I don't have a snack I get super sick all the sudden and need to lay down. Or if I wait too long in between meals.
☾✰ Food cravings?
Peanut butter toast. Orange Juice. Green smoothies (spinach, oj, hemp seeds, banana, mango, peaches, pineapple, lime), Yellow Mangos, Sour Pink Lemonade, Frozen Yogurt, Ginger's Cafe Falafel Salad.
☾✰ Food aversions?
Dairy. Meat. Hamburgers. UGH THE SMELL I CAN'T. Anything but plain hummus.
Little baby girl.
☾✰ Labor signs?
Nope. And thanks goodness!
☾✰ Belly button in or out?
☾✰ What I miss?
Raw sushi. Holding knees up to my chest comfortably. Sleeping flat on my back. Pulling up pants and doing them up (haha).
☾✰ What I'm looking forward to?
Meeting our little angel. Decorating her nursery. Spring cleaning. Consistent movement. Summer.
Halfway done! Wahoo!
Little baby bump! Finally. Took her long enough!
