(This post is 1 week late! My 20 week update will be posted some time this week! I just found this draft and wanted to post it to keep it documented!)
Ok, I have been slack-a-lackin on this blog lately! Even my sister is sending me texts urging me to stop being such a slacker. Zach and I have both been working a lot and packing/preparing for our move next month! It’s insane how much
crap stuff two people can accumulate in 3 short years. I imagine this will triple when we have just one child and grow exponentially with each child after that. I’m gonna do a post on our move/new house in the next month. Can’t wait to share it!
Even this is a little late so week 20 will be up soon too! There really isn’t enough newness to keep things interesting but Ill try!
How far along? 19 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I won’t know until tuesday. We don’t own a scale so I find out at my appointment. I’m gonna say A LOT!
Maternity clothes?: Yes my “cousin” Tash gave me all her maternity clothes and I am so grateful! (Thanks Tash!!) She is the most stylish person I know and gave me so much adorable stuff that is so cute it will hopefully distract me from my whale state in a couple of months!
Stretch marks? Not yet, been using organic coconut oil and sweet almond oil on my belly. :)
Sleep: Sleeping amazing! Finally!!!
Best moment this week: Feeling our baby kick/move. Wow. Honestly, I get teary. It’s the weirdest feeling but makes me feel super connected to this little babe.
Have you told family and friends: Yes
Miss Anything? my old clothes, and being able to eat crap/junk without feeling guilty for letting my baby eat crap/junk
Movement: Yes! Yay! Same time every night!
Food cravings: Pickles, veggies and dip, cold drinks, tea
Anything making you queasy or sick: rice, avocado, sometimes meat.
Have you started to show yet: Yes I have! Getting bigger every day and I love it!
Gender prediction: I don’t know anymore. Lately all of my dreams have been about a baby girl but if all of my dreams were real predictions then I might as well go to jail right now. Seriously some CRAZY dreams happening over here!!!
Labor Signs: no
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Had a moody day yesterday but otherwise, obnoxiously happy.
Weekly Wisdom: To work out while pregnant. I’ve started walking every day for an hour and doing squats and lifting small weights. I look like an idiot most of the time but they say it will help when I gotta get this babe out so I’ll try it.
Looking forward to: Midwife appointment on Tuesday and our 20 week ultrasound.
