20 Weeks- Halfway There!

20 Weeks!! 
Baby is the size a banana! 
Or a chipotle burrito (gross) 

I can't believe that we are halfway there. I can't wait to meet my sweet little GIRL! Yup, we are having a girl. I posted our gender reveal here. Things seem more real now that we refer to the baby as a she and her. Currently we do not have a name picked yet. We have a lot of ideas but just waiting to find a name that we feel fits our little girl. I try not to stress about a name, because I know in time we will pick one that we both think is perfect for her. 

How far along? 20 Weeks

Total weight gain: I weigh 114 now. So 12 pounds so far....honestly I haven't really been keeping track. Just every month when I go to the doctors they weigh me and I go by that. 

Maternity clothes? Yes, but not everyday still. I have pretty much written off jeans. It's been way to hot here and I hate the material. 

Stretch marks? Nope, still using that lotion! I use a mix of cocoa and shea butter lotions. 

Sleep: It's been okay this past week. I will wake up feeling sore from being on one side, or if I'm on my back which has gotten pretty uncomfortable lately. 

Best moment of this week: Seeing our baby, which I fell in love the moment we saw the profile on the screen. Finding out we are having a baby GIRL!!! And revealing her gender to our families and close friends. 

Miss anything? Energy and my appetite. I still deal with being nauseous  And at night it'll get worse. Does it ever end? 

Movement: Oh defiantly! I have a little dancer in there! She loves to move around more when her daddy talks and when music is playing. But she is sneaky because if he's paying attention and trying to feel her, she stops. 

Food cravings:  Pasta salad, fruit salad, salad, and sharp cheddar cheese. I have started to crave Panera's bagels and cream cheese again. Might have to make a stop soon. I'm over lemon things. Once I had a lemon bar, I was done. Way to sour. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: I can't stand the thought of meat, mainly chicken. Still. I will just get randomly sick, which is awesome. Also lately, the thought of ranch dressing just turns my the beginning right before I got super sick I ate a lot of ranch dressing with carrots. So I think that's why I despise it so much. 

Gender Guesses: Baby girl!!!!!!! We are SO happy. And I have a mother's intuition after all!!!! 

Labor signs: No way!

Symptoms: Fatigue. I still have nausea throughout the day, which lately it has been worse than usual. Round ligament pain. Back pain. Heartburn. Clumsy....oh goodness I have been running into everything...Pregnancy brain has returned. Lately I have been pretty out of it. Also, can being pregnant effect your hearing? Because lately I haven't been able to hear right! 

Belly button in or out? In...well truthfully my belly button has always been an innie/outie...and now it's starting to bump out just a little bit. 

Wedding rings on or off? On. Which I really hope they stay on the whole pregnancy. 

Happy or moody most of the time: So moody...and emotional...still. 

Looking forward to: Hmmm...thinking of names for this little girl! And this time next week, I'll be relaxing on the beach! Can't wait!
