This weekend was great!! It was full of fun times with family and lots of yummy picnic/cook-out food! Gabby enjoyed her first swim and I turned the big 2-7! The 3 day weekend flew by, it was not relaxing at all but it certainly was very very enjoyable!! A BIG thank you to my family for the birthday cards, gifts and yummy cakes =)
20 week pregnancy quiz:
How far along: 20 weeks 3 day
Weight gain: I'm up about 3-4 pounds
Maternity clothes: mostly pants, some tops – I haven’t purchased any new maternity clothes recently.. except a couple swim suits.. too much $ on suits that I will only wear this summer, but oh well!
Stretch marks: now new ones.. hoping it stays that way!! =)
Sleep: I’m definitely having more trouble getting comfortable, even though my belly isn’t too big yet it still can complicate things a little!! The trips to the potty are increasing.
Best moment of the week: our ultrasound on Friday was AMAZING!! and we did have one great weekend with family =)
Movement: yeppers.. it’s not very strong yet but I can feel him!
Food cravings: still loving diet coke with lemon; I’ve also been craving Air Heads.. ya know, the yummy flavored taffy.. kinda strange =)
Gender: absolutely a BOY!!!
Labor signs: no!
Belly button in or out: still in but getting flatter as my tummy grows
What I miss: just having my body to myself.. don’t get me wrong, I’m blessed to be pregnant and love knowing I am the one responsible for helping Gum Drop grow but I do also miss having my body to myself.. I feel like it hasn’t been ‘my’ body for over a year now.. it’s been my babies’ body!!
What I'm looking forward to: our trip to OCMD in 2 weeks; continuing to watch Gabby and Gavin grow and interact more with one another!!
Weekly wisdom: wear sunscreen! ;)
Milestones: Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel - the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.) He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper.
