Bump Day ~ 20 Weeks

How far along? 20 weeks!  Baby is the size of banana and weighed about 12 ounces at our ultrasound.  Almost a pound!

Weight gain/loss: So I cut out the misc snacking and crap eating and lost 2 lbs this week.  Funny how that works.

Maternity Clothes? I'm hoping summer stuff starts going on clearance, wouldn't mind picking up a pair of shorts, especially considering shorts season around here can often go into October.  Love those indian summers!

Sleep: No complaints here.

Stretch marks: Same ole, same ole.

Best moment this week: Seeing our perfect, beautiful, healthy baby!  Seriously nothing can top that.

Movement: Baby has been more and more active in there!  Still no outside movement, but I found out I have an anterior placenta so it may be a bit longer this time around.

Food cravings: Not much this week, or at least not much I indulged in.  Trying to remember pregnancy is not a free pass!

Gender: Don't mess with mama's intuition!  We're having a GIRL!

Labor Signs: No thanks, not for about 19 more weeks please.

What I Miss: Just enjoying this part of pregnancy!

What I'm looking forward to:  At the moment I'm still living on the high from our big news this week!

Weekly Wisdom: Start the name game as soon as possible.  It may take 20 more weeks to convince your husband your name of choice is the only obvious choice.

Milestones: Half Baked!  Officially have more behind me than ahead of me, though December still seems ridiculously far away!

Big Brother: So I told him we were having a girl and his first reaction was to cry and pout because he wanted a brother.  You know.  The same kid who's been telling me for weeks we're having a girl and that all he wants is a sister.   Kids are weird.  Luckily he recovered quickly and now he's pretty excited!
