20 week Pregnancy Progress

How far along? 20 weeks 4 days (sad that I had to check with my blog baby ticker :P ).


Total weight gain/loss: According to my scale at home (which is always different than the clinic's), I have gained 6 lbs. I thought that seemed like a bit much, but I looked back to my records with Jackson and I had gained 8 lbs. by 20 weeks. I think I'm entering the biggest increase of weight this next month (with Jackson I gained a total of 14 lbs. by 24 weeks, so that was 6 lbs. in 1 month alone) :P

Maternity clothes? Depends on the day. I wear alot of sweats and gouchos at home. But when I go out, I wear nicer maternity clothes. I am proud that I actually fit into a pair of non maternity capri jeans today :)
Stretch marks? Nothing new at this point. I have a few nice ones from my pregnancy on my sides. Nothing over the belly however.

Best moment this week? STILL TO COME! Tomorrow (thursday the 6th) is my 20 week ultrasound!! You can bet Holly and I will be sharing stories LOL

Movement: Began feeling movement at 19 weeks (not as early as I thought I would). It's more tumbling around than anything. I haven't had alot of kicking at this point, but have felt a few :)

Food cravings: This one hit me harder than the first pregnancy! I have the biggest sweet tooth, it's killing me! candy, candy candy!!

Gender: Well, the blog Poll shows the GIRLS are in a slammin lead with 10 to 3 votes :) What do I feel? I suppose I would be surprised if it isn't a girl.... but at the same time I would be really surprised if it is a girl. Does that make any sense?

Labor Signs: Goodness NO!

Belly Button in or out? Still a good inny - but sometimes (like after a good full meal), half of it will be poking out

What I miss: Nothing - at this point I am feeling great. Haven't felt sick in a few weeks and physically I am still able to do everything I was before.

What I am looking forward to: To hear that everything is going well with the pregnancy. That baby is growing as it should be and he/she is healthy :) and of course - it find out the gender


Come back for a follow tomorrow after my ultrasound!!

Please keep a friend of mine in your thoughts and prayers. Shortly after she told her husband they were expecting their second child, they lost their baby. I know she would appreciate being lifted up in prayer. Thank you.
