20 Weeks with Baby #2

Week of May 19, 2013

How Far Along?  20 weeks!!! HALF WAY!!!

Due Date: October 6, 2013
Sunday May 19
20 weeks!

Total weight gain/loss: I haven't stepped on the scale in weeks...but at my doc appointment last week I was up 9...

Maternity clothes? yes and I love them...why don't they make all clothes this comfortable!????

Stretch Marks? I'm forever going to be scared! Though they look lighter to me. :)

Sleep: I wake up a lot to change positions and I feel like I never get a full 8-9 hours straight which makes me tired. 

Best moment this week: My sister surprising us yesterday by coming home for our cousins grad party! It seriously made my weekend. I really miss her even though we've seen her a lot lately. I miss having her in our weekly lives. It makes me so sad that she is so far away (chicago) and won't get to be as involved with this baby's life as she was with Lincoln. If I seriously sit down and think about it, I get depressed. I'm hopeful that by Baby #3 she will be back here permanently. 

Movement: yes, more and more each day!! LOVE IT!

Food cravings: none really this week

Food aversions: none
A real baby bump!

Gender: I'm still thinking boy, though I'm starting to love the idea of a girl. Even to the point where it makes me sad to think if this one is a boy and we will have to wait 2-3 years before I could get my girl 

Labor Signs: none yet, just my daily dose of braxton hicks...

Belly Button in or out? never went out with little still in!

What I miss: I feel like I'm getting bigger which is always a struggle for me. So I miss being able to control or have some control of my weight...

What I am looking forward to: Having Adam home AGAIN this week!! And getting to see friends and celebrate Memorial Weekend next weekend!

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
