20 weeks

How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain:
0.5 pounds (because I lost 4 pounds in the 1st trimester)
Maternity clothes? Oh yes, and dresses are my best friend.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: Not so great. I’ve been battling a cold so I can’t breathe very well when I sleep.
Best moment this week:
On Sunday (January 1st) I was feeling depressed (and I have no idea why). Logan and I were on the couch, talking, and all the sudden I felt something in my belly. I quickly looked over to him, not saying a word and he knew exactly what was happening. He put his hand on my belly and he got to experience the first kicks from our baby with me!
Miss Anything? Feeling sexy (sorry…T.M.I.)
Movement: Yes! A little bit every day.
Food cravings: pie and ice cream! That’s all I’ve wanted all week, but I’ve compromised with a healthy alternative: Non-fat plain Greek yogurt, wheat germ, honey, frozen sliced bananas and peanut butter.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just coffee. I really want to want to drink it, but I just can’t stomach it.
Gender: It’s a surprise!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Some back pain, almost like back charlie horses. Anyone have any advice on how to help this?
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on and loose (probably because of the colder weather).
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy with a side of scared. It’s feeling more real and I’m getting myself all scared about the road that lies ahead.
Looking forward to: Decorating the nursery.
