20 Weeks


How far along:  20 weeks.
Gender: GIRL!
Belly button in or out:  Still half and half.
Maternity clothes:  Same as before, although I think I only wore actual pants (not leggings) once this past week, oops.
Stretch marks:  Nothing yet.
Sleep:  Still pretty sore some mornings, but others I am fine.  Knocking on all the wood, I haven't really had any trouble sleeping just yet.
Best moment of the week:  Finding out we have another healthy baby girl on the way!!! The ultrasound was definitely the best one I've had to date.  The woman who did it was super thorough, explained exactly what she was looking at (using lots of medical terminology I will probably never remember), why she was looking at it, and confirmed that each and every bone and organ is growing exactly as they should be along the way! :) She also went for the most exciting part first, which was a total surprise to me since I had to wait until the very end to find out with Ellie.
Miss anything:  Not really this week, too much excitement I think! :)
Movement:  Yes!  Apparently the current positioning of baby and placenta means I will likely be feeling a lot more movement on the sides rather than in the middle, which has definitely been the case.  Side note: I think just hearing the word "placenta" makes Tyler cringe after seeing that bad boy first hand after Ellie was born - it's not so pretty from what I hear. ;)
Cravings:  Really not too picky, but fruit, sweets, cereal & Italian food all sound especially good to me.
Queasy or sick:  Feeling good.
Looking forward to:  It's finally move-IN week for us this week!!! Being able to get settled into our new house with all our own stuff is going to be quite the process, but we are obviously very excited at this point.  Also looking forward to getting this chalkboard hung on the wall so I can hopefully get some better pictures!  Big sister's doodling is getting a little out of control.

Last Wednesday was the official halfway mark of this pregnancy, but my gut tells me we had already passed that milestone by that point (based on past experience, of course).  I kind of can't believe we're already halfway to meeting our little girl!  This time around, I am definitely feeling less rushed to get to the finish line.  I'm sure I'll be singing a different tune come May, but for now I'm just enjoying this experience and look forward to "baking" our little baby for the next few months! :)
