How far along? 20 weeks, officially halfway there!
Total weight gain/loss: A little over 7 lbs.
Maternity clothes? For work I am wearing mostly dresses and non-maternity pants. When I workout I am definitely in maternity workout capris and pants. I got frustrated shopping at Destination Maternity last weekend because a cute top I saw online was actually huge in-person, and the XS pants I tried on were still massive. I think I’ve also returned about 90% of the maternity stuff I’ve bought online. So I might as well just stop looking at maternity clothes at this point and try to find regular clothes that might fit? Honestly I am not even close to the point where I have nothing to wear, so it’s not a big deal, just annoying. I just like shopping!
Stretch marks? Nope
Symptoms: Nothing really. I feel lucky to have had an extremely easy pregnancy so far, which only makes me think I’m going to pay for it during delivery or with a crazy newborn!
Sleep: Sleeping has been fine. I am trying to transition to sleeping on my side (from my stomach) but I am just too comfortable. Not always getting up in the middle of the night to pee, so that’s been fun.
Best moment this week: Feeling movement pretty consistently and catching up with friends that I haven’t seen in a while. And hubby’s birthday! We have so many plans for his birthday and Easter I am exhausted just thinking about it all.
Worst moment of the week: Nothing really!
Have you told family and friends: Yes
Miss Anything? I miss some of my cute clothes. I’m trying to figure out what to wear for a wedding in a few weeks. I should be able to get away with a non-maternity dress I already own unless I go through a crazy growth spurt…
Movement: Yep, and both David and I have even felt some “kicks” from the outside, which was cool and kind of weird feeling.
Food cravings: Clementines I guess. I think I’ve eaten about 3 per day on average the past week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Seeing gross things on TV like that stupid foot fungus commercial. I literally have to look away or change the channel. Looking at my phone in the car when someone else is driving makes me a little queasy.
Have you started to show yet: Yes? No? I’ve gotten some comments that I don’t even look pregnant (ugh, thanks, STFU please as you’re just adding to my anxiety/insecurity) that make me almost feel like I need to go around and show people a photo of my pre-pregnancy abs just to convince them! So my official answer is…it depends on what I’m wearing, what angle you’re looking at me from, and if you knew what I looked like pre-pregnancy. But I definitely did a double take in the mirror this week, thinking, “whoa, when did that show up???”.
Gender: Girl-y girl.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: Celebrating hubby’s birthday, and some family time for Easter.
