Baby Update: 20 Weeks

How far along? 20 weeks.... half way there!
Baby Size: 10 inches from head to heel and about 10.5 ounces
Have you started to show?: Yep! But I still don't look very big. My husband jokes that you can't tell I'm pregnant if you look head-on or from the back
  Total weight gain: 9-10 pounds
Maternity clothes? Mostly maternity shirts, but a few regular still. Mostly non-maternity skirts
Stretch Marks? Not yet!
Sleep: Falling asleep has been difficult, and I am often tired
Best moment this week: Starting our Bradley classes. These are GREAT classes for getting my hubby involved and getting us prepared to meet our little one.
Miss Anything? This week I was missing more vigorous exercise. I am really excited to get into body pump classes after the baby is born.
Movement: Baby is moving up a storm and particularly enjoys kicking me in the bladder (oh joy!).
As for my movement, I am still going to the gym and doing light weights and cardio most days.
Food cravings: Baby wants watermelon, which is very expensive during the Winter! But at least it is healthy
Anything making you queasy or sick: All food sounds pretty delicious these days
Gender Prediction: We will find out when baby arrives!
Symptoms: Lots of trips to the bathroom. I've also noticed my skin is much drier than usual. But one good symptom is that the skin on my face has been very clear and rosy
Mood: Excited! This has been a very nice last few weeks, and I am getting so excited now that we are halfway. We've been starting to get things organized and the baby showers are getting planned.
Looking forward to: Our ultrasound tomorrow. I'm looking forward to seeing all those movement I've been feeling.

  1. You have the cutest little bump! I'm so happy that this pregnancy is going so well for you. All of your prayers and the prayers of those of us who read your blog or know you in real life have paid off. I'm still praying of course. :)

    You should let readers know where you're registering for your shower in case they want to give a gift card for the occasion. I know I would like to do so, providing I'm financially able. :)


  2. Nice bump there. :) With you having a clear face.....I am guessing boy. ☺

  3. I love reading your pregnancy updates! So happy that the Lord has blessed you and your husband!! I hope that you appointment tomorrow goes well!
