Week of May 24th Happy BIRTH day to Lucas James Varner!!!!
How Far Along? 20 weeks Yay for HALF WAY!!!
Total weight gain/loss: as of last friday I was up 13...eek
Maternity Clothes? Pretty much all. They are just more comfortable. I would love to get a few more dresses for the summer though
Stretch Marks? No new ones thank goodness
Sleep? It hasn't been horrible this week I actually was able to sleep on my stomach a few night :)
Best Moment of this Week? Hitting the Half way mark!!! COME ON OCTOBER!!! I want to meet my little one!
Movement? YES!!!! I love and cherish every kick! Poor Adam and room mate want to feel it so bad but someone said it will be a few more weeks before they can feel it on the outside :(
Food cravings? nope
Food aversions? nope
Gender? I'm keeping ya guessing!
Labor Signs? I think I've been feeling my first contractions. I know they are just Braxton Hicks and nothing to be worried about. They are just more of an annoyance than anything else
What I miss? not feeling tired all the time. I've been really sad lately too, I think school and everything go on is just getting to me.
What I am looking forward to: This is sort of two fold. i'm looking forward to my cousins wedding this weekend, but I'm NOT looking forward to being in a bridesmaid dress. Uggg, for the girl who has struggled with her weight her WHOLE life being in a bridesmaid dress doesn't help my fat girl complex. The things we do for the people we love...too bad she wont let me walk down the isle in sweats!
Size of the Baby:
Baby's now the size of a cantaloupe!
Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies respond best to tastes they've already had via amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you'd like your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch.
