20 Weeks




How far along? 20 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 14lbs

Maternity clothes? I am officially wearing all maternity clothes. I try to squeeze into my regular shirts but they are just too short and I look goofy.

Sleep: It is getting a little better. Baby chicken nugget is still pretty active at night and I have to get up to go to the bathroom a lot still.

Best moment this week: Finding out baby's gender

Movement: It is getting more consistent. I am starting to notice it's patterns and when it is most active. Usually mid-morning and at night when I am relaxing or trying to sleep.

Food cravings: Not craving anything too bad lately

Gender: It's a GIRL!

Labor Signs: Not yet

Belly Button in or out? It is widening some but still looks pretty normal

What I miss: Not really anything lately.

What I am looking forward to: My c-section date scheduled for July 23rd

Weekly Wisdom: It's hard to keep a secret! We were going to keep her gender a secret but it got out accidentally through a text I sent K. A co-worker was looking over his shoulder and saw and thus, the secret was out.

Milestones: Grow baby grow!

And so that date has arrived

for our anatomy scan, that is. It came and went and K and I are elated! We have chosen not to tell friends or family and so far that has not gone over too well but it is our decision. It is our child and we want to have some sort of surprise element in this whole deal.

The scan went great! Baby chicken nugget is looking good. All body parts are functioning and it is SURE a mover and a shaker which is so different from the boys. Being pregnant with one baby is very different from being pregnant with two. It has so much more room to move and wiggle.

We got a few great profile pictures and chicken nugget just wouldn't cooperate for any good 3d images. Oh well..........

Now if the next 4 months can fly by, I'll be one happy camper!
