How far along: 20 weeks
How big is baby: About the size of a banana
Weight gain: I honestly haven’t kept up with this as much as I have wanted to. But I think I’m on track.
Sleeping: It’s been hard to sleep. But it has not much to do with this baby as it does with her big brother (he’s been sick). No wonder I haven’t felt my second trimester burst of energy yet!
Food cravings: I haven’t craved sweets at all this pregnancy, but this week I’ve had a crazy craving for hot cocoa. And red meat.
Food aversions: Nothing right now. I am still having a hard time with oatmeal in the mornings though.
Symptoms: Heartburn, tail bone pain…
Miss Anything?: Not really. Too busy to even think about it!
Doctor’s appointment: I go for my in-depth ultrasound this week. Last time I went everything was looking great!
Wedding Rings: Still on.
Clothes: Looking forward to wearing all the Fall stuff my friends have so graciously lent me. I am enjoying dressing this bump. My hips have widened too much this time around, so my maternity jeans fit a bit looser and I love it like that.
Movement: Baby girl moves around a lot at night and when big brother is around. (p.s.: I think she will adore him)
What I’m looking forward to: Decorating her room! I have a few ideas. We are tight on space and budget, but I know I can make it look decent for her.
What I did / Got for baby: Continuing my purge of O’s baby clothes ( 0- 3T). It’s boxes and boxes of clothes friends. I got her some onesies, socks and pants at carters.com. I was dying to buy the dresses and other cute stuff but I am sticking with the basics for now. Most of O’s basics were very boyish and it just wouldn’t work for our girl!
Prayer requests: Praying for energy and health. This bought of sickness has done me in!
