20 Weeks!

How far along? 20 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Somewhere between 7-10 lbs (still). What I find really fun is weighing myself first thing in the morning, and then again before I go to bed. It's amazing how weight fluctuates! Usually between 2 and 3 pounds difference!

Maternity clothes? Mostly, yes.

Stretch marks? No new ones, but the old ones sure get itchy.

Sleep: The last few nights I have woken up around 4 or 5 am and have had a really hard time falling asleep again. The first time, I woke from a dream that our baby was deformed, and I woke up in a panic. I just couldn't relax after that. Last night, I have no idea why I woke again.

Best moment this week: My Chiropractor telling me how tiny I look :) (Not sure if she really meant it, but it felt good to hear)

Movement: This baby is VERY active! Any time I lay down, I get all the squirms and pokes. I love it!

Food cravings: Nothing really right now. I've been baking a lot though.

Gender: We won't be finding out. Right now I *think* it could be a girl, but who knows!

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: Having energy. I've been incredibly tired, and Rowan thinks he doesn't need a nap anymore. Makes my days feel very long.

What I am looking forward to: When Rowan and Bria can feel their little brother or sister moving! Also, my ultrasound which is coming up on the 22nd!

Weekly Wisdom: Just making sure to stay as healthy as possible to avoid getting the flu (of any kind). Probiotics and vitamin D. Any other suggestions?

Milestones: I'm halfway there!!!!!!!

Even with the kids screaming in the background here, your picture makes me miss being pregnant terribly!

You're looking great stacey! Hey, i actualy had a dream about this baby. I dreamt that it was a boy, born 9 weeks early, but he still weighed 9 pounds and was healthy. Kinda weird. See ya soon, take care =)

I LOVE the way you did this...and how did i miss it????

You look AMAZING!! Can't believe this is your 3rd child.

I dont even know how I would know if I had new stretch marks, I have so many.

Not only does my weight fluctuate, the size of my stomach GROWS and changes.

I, too, love when Mill can feel the baby. She asks if it's asleep a lot. Asa kisses it all the time. Being pregnant sure has its upsides!
