Size of baby: According to BabyCenter, you’re about the length of a carrot
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Roughly 20 pounds. Apparently 10 is "normal". What can I say, my body just loves being pregnant I guess.
Maternity Clothes: Primarily maternity clothes these days. Went shopping yesterday for some more summery stuff.
Gender: It's a BOY!
Movement: Still a little movement here and there, but nothing constant. Every now and then I'll get a sharp jab, though. =) At my 20 week ultrasound the tech told me that my placenta was in front of the little guy, so that it may take a bit longer to feel regular movements.
What I miss: My regular pants. My maternity pants are still sliding down... driving me nuts. =P
Sleep: I think that sleep has gotten better for me over the last week. Jacob bought me a big ol' maternity pillow, and that has helped. I don't even think I've woken up to pee in the middle of the night for a couple of days now. =)
Symptoms: Have to use the bathroom every hour or so, even though only a thimble-full comes out. lol. Tonight I've also been experience some pretty bad pain in my pubic region. All that damn relaxin. I just really, really, hope that it clears up and doesn't get worse as I still have several weeks to go!
Cravings: Not really craving anything. I've tried to be better about my diet with this pregnancy than I was with the last one, but I don't know if it's going anywhere. lol. So far I have avoided chocolate milkshakes though. They were my downfall last time!
Best Moment this week: It was a couple weeks ago, but the ultrasound was great, being able to see the little guy and finally have some questions answered.
What I am looking forward to: Getting Emily's new room and the nursery all sorted out. Not sure when that will happen though... but I want to at least go to Home Depot and grab some paint color strips so I can start plotting. =)
