It’s that time of the week again! You get to spend the next ten minutes reading about weird/crazy/gross things going on in pregnancy!!! So… why are you still sitting there??? Get up, clap, shout, cheer, dance around, shake yo groove thang… this is BIG time stuff people!
I apologize for that last sentence, it’s not even 6 am yet and my brain isn’t thinking rationally.
Baby Sauvageau: 20 Weeks!!! Halfway home… literally.
Baby’s size? Banana (the length of)
Maternity clothes? Absolutely. I should probably invest in some different ones since my current maternity workout shirt says, “Aggie Quarterback in Training” on the stomach from when I was pregnant with Noah. Don’t worry baby girl, I don’t expect you to be A&M’s quarterback. Unless you just want to. As a parent I’ll support you.
Stretch marks? Nope. I did find some lovely varicose veins on my legs this weekend. #worthit
Sleep: Yeesh. The song that comes to mind is Katie Perry’s “Hot N Cold.” Because literally, as soon as I find something that works, it doesn’t any more. I did invest in a body pillow (thanks Beth!) I’m just not too sure how to use it to make myself comfortable…
Best moment this week: My 20 week appointment yesterday! Everything looked great, she’s measuring big, and I feel good Also starting to talk about a baby shower with my sister! Photo from instagram.
Miss anything? Good sleep. Strike that. Any sleep.
Movement: YES! Every ultra sound I have the tech comments how she won’t stay still for any length of time. Must run in the family (ahem, Noah!!!)
Food Cravings: ALL THE FOOD!!! Everyone is going crazy with their New Year’s diets/juice cleanse/detox and you can find us eating wings. 20 wings for $9.99 x2 to be exact. Let’s just say we’ve had leftovers for a few days now… Mine are on the left, Joe’s are on the right. I also made some incredible funfetti blondies on Tuesday night!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: A sweet little girl to balance out the fam
Labor Signs: None!
Symptoms: Getting/staying full much more quickly.
Belly Button – in or out? In, and getting flatter haha!
Wedding Rings – on or off? On!
Happy or Moody? I was less snarky this week, huh babe? Don’t answer that.
Looking Forward To: Enjoying this pregnancy! It’s easy to get caught up in the discomfort but the truth is, I wanted this little baby SO MUCH! I want to fully take in the days, movements, sleepless nights, and all that being pregnant comes with. It doesn’t last long.
(Me and my sister-in-law (due in March!) taken before Christmas. We’re both having girls!)
