How Far Along:
20 weeks 3 days
Size of baby:
According to The Bump, baby girl is the size of a banana this week
Yes and no. Still wearing a mixture of both and pretty much anything that fits and is comfy.
Still not sure if I've felt anything but I'm okay with that since mostly everyone told me to enjoy this time before she's kicking me every second of the day. I would still love to feel something though
I've finally started sleeping with a pillow between my legs to help with my back pain but I get so uncomfortable sleeping on my sides which I've heard is recommended instead of back sleeping. I sometimes find myself waking up on my back though.
What I miss:
Still missing the same things: sleeping on my stomach, over-easy eggs, caesar salad and I really miss beer!
This week I can't get enough honey roasted peanuts plus chips and salsa. Random cravings for sure
I've been getting the round ligament pains (below my belly) so often which is kind of annoying. I know they're normal but I wish I could just skip over some of the most common pregnancy symptoms for once
Favorite Moment This Week:
I finally colored my hair after finding my first gray hair four weeks ago. I love having fresh color!
Oh and I got the crib bedding fabric swatches I ordered last week and it's even prettier in person. I can't wait to see the whole room come together
Worst Moment This Week:
My cousin Rachael went into the hospital again on Friday after battling a high fever all week with no relief. She has Crohn's Disease and ever since her long stint in the hospital in January she's been in remission. Her Dr's did lots of tests this weekend but weren't able to find a direct cause of her fever, nausea, high heart rate and low blood pressure so they've kept her to monitor her and administer antibiotics. I just pray she gets better soon so she can get back to teaching her 3rd grade class and enjoying being a newlywed.
Looking Forward To:
I was supposed to go to the Doctor this week but due to Allen's schedule we had to move it to next week. I can't wait to see our little girl via ultrasound again at that appointment
