I have reached the halfway point! At first, I felt like this pregnancy was creeping by but now, the weeks just keep flying by. Before I know it this baby will be here and I still have a lot to do!!
How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: This past week I was up 7 lbs, I’ve been gaining a pound a week pretty consistently now. As much as it pains me to see that scale going on, I’m on target to gain roughly 25-30 pounds which is what I gained with my first pregnancy without any problems, so I’m ok with it!
Sleep: Sleeping pretty well lately, a couple of weeks ago I had a few nights in a row I would wake up around 1am and couldn’t go back to sleep until 3am or so, that was fun. Luckily, this past week I haven’t had any of those episodes.
Best moment this week: This isn’t pregnancy related, but celebrating Maddox’s third birthday was pretty special, he had so much fun and this momma loves nothing more than seeing him happy!
Movement: Lots! This baby wiggles around a lot more than Maddox did, nearly every time I eat, baby does the happy dance.
Symptoms: I’m still having issues eating. Obviously with my weight gain I’m eating enough, but I literally don’t want to eat. Everything makes me feel awful, I basically eat because I have to. Yet, I’m still starving all the time.
Food cravings: I’m really not craving much at the moment, except a turkey sandwich which I can’t have haha.
Food aversions: Still onions and rice big time, but like I said, I’m really not enjoying much of anything lately.
Gender: Our gender scan is this week!!!!
Labor Signs: Nope!
Belly Button in or out? Still half out. I almost feel like my belly hasn’t grown much over the last few weeks, I popped fast, but now I’m holding steady at somewhat the same size.
What I miss: Starbucks coffee, turkey sandwiches and the ability to drink a ton of water. <--same as a few weeks ago! What I am looking forward to: Still so excited about finding out the gender, will be revealing that later this week! Thanks for reading girls, can't wait to share the gender with you soon!! -Brooke
