How far along? 20 weeks (half way to meeting baby… or close to it, after all baby will come when baby is ready!)
Total weight gain/loss: +9 (suppose to gain between 8-10 pounds by this time so I’m right on track!)
Maternity clothes? Well I officially can’t wear one pair of pants because I have no way to keep them up. My shirts are getting short and I fear maternity clothes are in my near future. I’m holding on out buying anything and hoping I can make it to Christmas.
Sleep: Another great week of sleep! No complaints in this department. A few random mornings where I was up for an hour but that’s nothing compared to the last month. Yeah!
Best moment this week: You kicked your daddy!! Ben felt baby’s first kick (and multiple kicks after that!) Another awesome moment was when my first student discovered that bump she was hugging was a baby! A Kindergarten student was having a bad day and came up for a hug. As she was hugging my bump she points to it and looks up at me saying, “it feels like there is a baby in there.” I said, “there is!” Then the child shouts, “for real?” She then proceeded to ask if the baby was a boy or girl and kissed my belly! She told a few children so the rest will know soon enough! So exciting!
Movement: Feeling movement more often. I feel baby more often in the evening than the rest of the day. Such a wonderful feeling!
Food cravings: Hm.. nothing specific again this week. Fried food has been a constant craving (wish I was craving something like apples or spinach…).
Gender: According to another Old Wive’s Tale if you experience more headaches now than before you were pregnant (which unfortunately I do.. ) baby is a boy!
Belly Button in or out? Innie… but Ben and I think innie is not so innie anymore..
What I miss: Shirts that fit without tugging them down all the time.
What I am looking forward to: Celebrating my sweet baby with two baby showers at the end of December.
Milestones: Daddy feeling those beautiful baby kicks I have been experiencing!
(Sorry for the delay.. I really needed to focus on other things this past week; work, cleaning, organizing and getting on top of my life! I did focus on those things and feel sooo much better!)
