{week 20}

20 weeks 

Week 20 (Oct 13 – Oct 19)

This baby is officially half-baked!

First of all, I realized this week that I’m actually off by a week, and really this was week 21.  Yes starting on the 13th I was 20 weeks, but technically speaking it was my 21st week being pregnant.  Pregnancy math is just complicated. But I’m too lazy to go back and change it, so we’re just going to go with it. :)  This was an exciting week, though!  On Saturday of course was my It’s A Baby party, which was just FABULOUS!  I had so much fun.  And although it was not a shower, and gifts were not supposed to be given, I got lots of cute things for the little one. :) It really was just a fun afternoon of girl time, and I had such a great time!  Not to mention my BFF is quite the hostess!  Pictures coming soon, I promise.  Sunday I went to a baby shower (and took some photos you can see here), and then had a photo shoot afterwards (which you can see here).  That was also tons of fun…just a baby-filled weekend! Then the week flew buy with more busy days at work, and evenings working on our house.  Thursday was the big day, and our house officially went on the market!!  We have our fingers crossed that it sells soon-ish, although that means we need to get out and find where we want to move to!  Needless to say, nothing but busy times ahead for this family. ;)

Size of baby: banana

Total weight gain/loss:  16 lbs. 

Maternity clothes? Yes, and lots of them.

Stretch marks? Not yet

Sleep: not horrible, but still not great.

Symptoms: nothing really to report!  The headaches have gotten much better, just a little back pain now and iffy sleep.  Otherwise, feeling a-ok!

Best moment this week: my party!  Feeling lots of love by all the women in my life and getting to celebrate the little girl joining our family. ;)  (at a close second, was our house going on the market on Thursday!) 

Movement: yes, I have quite a wiggle worm in there (and once again, kicking me as I type this)!  Matt still hasn’t felt it from the outside yet, but I know it’s coming soon.  I love the little reminders that she’s still growing in there. :)

Food cravings: candy.  Happy Halloween?

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope!

Have you started to show yet: I think it’s pretty obvious now, because more and more people at work are starting to say something to me.  This question is probably getting the boot soon, because there’s really no denying it anymore!

Gender: GIRL!!!!!!

Belly Button in or out? in

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Looking forward to: some family time on Saturday, and hopefully a relatively quiet Sunday to get things done at home.  Also, getting to start looking at places to live!! :)
