How far along: 20 weeks, 1 days
Total Weight Gain: 18.5 lbs
Symptoms: Tired....like the kind of tired that makes you want to curl in fetal position and cry.
Stretch Marks: They have made their arrival in full force. So far only on the bottom of my belly.
Sleep: Not fantastic. I am having a harder time staying asleep and the middle of the night bathroom breaks seem to be getting more frequent.
Best Moment Last Week: Listening to the kicks with my fetal heart doppler and then seeing the doppler move on my tummy. I think we are getting close to feeling them from the outside!
Movement: They are getting much more active and I love it! I am feeling more purposeful kicks but I haven't been able to feel them with my hands from the outside.
Food Cravings: Chocolate cherrios.
What I Miss: Feeling rested
What am I looking forward to: Our first baby shower this weekend.
Milestones: Reaching 20 weeks! We are officially over the hump. Just 18 weeks left.
How is Daddy? Wonderful. He's done a great job of making me feel good about myself as this week has been one of those "holy crap I look like a cow" kind of weeks. He's been rubbing my back and belly which I LOVE!
I think these just make me look huge and fat...not really pregnant:
Can't believe there are 2 of those in there!
