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!!!!!!!
