20 Weeks...

How far along? 20 weeks

Total weight gain? 3lbs…my doctor is not happy with me!

Maternity clothes? Luckily the style of clothing right now works great for maternity. I did splurge and buy 2 pair of Lilac Maternity pants that I LOVE! I also wear jeggings…almost every day!

Stretch marks? I am so luck to not have any stretch marks yet. I put lots of cream on my belly twice a day, every day.

Sleep: So far so good. I can’t get enough. I knock out every night by 10pm.

Best moment this week: Bodi could feel the baby move for the first time. It was so amazing!

Miss anything: I’m missing having a body that goes forever. I used to be able to run all day without a break but my body is not having any of that! I can go for a few hours then I have to sit for about 20 minutes or I won’t be able to walk!

Baby Movement: All the time. Especially when I am resting or trying to fall asleep at night.

Food cravings: Taco Bell burritos…I know I’m disgusting!  I hadn’t eaten Taco Bell in 8 years until now. I really want to eat it every day!

Anything make you queasy or sick: I was sick at 3 weeks with this pregnancy. Even though I was sick I could eat most things. I really had a hard time with red sauces. It was the worst because I couldn’t eat my favorite things like pizza, spaghetti sauce and salsa. I’m doing great now and eat everything in site!

Gender: Boy

Labor signs: So far no!

Symptoms: I have to pee all the time! At the beginning there was morning, afternoon and evening sickness. I am exhausted by the end of the day. I am in constant pain with my scar tissue and my adhesions on my ovaries. When the baby shifts positions it makes it worse. I would rather be in pain than throwing up!

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off?  It has been off since I was 3 months. By the middle of the day my hands are so swollen that it didn’t fit. I wear my birth stone from my Grandpa Rhodes instead.

Happy or moody most of the time? Happy! I am so thrilled to be pregnant! I am constantly in pain but I try not to show it.

Looking forward to: Decorating the baby’s room. I know what I want just not exactly how to get there.

I can't even say how happy I am for you guys! A boy will be such a fun addition to your family. I like your question/answer post, it's good to hear how others are dealing with this lovely condition called "pregnancy."

Umm, you're beautiful and I'm glad things are going well. But I'm not sure we can be friends anymore... at 20 weeks I look like a house next to you!
