Halfway there!!! and baby's sex announcement :-)

How far along: 20 weeks 1 days

How big is baby: According to the Bump and my What to Expect App, (both like to compare baby to fruits and veggies) baby is the size of a banana at 11oz. Our little bean was already 11oz 1 week ago...what an over achiever ;)

Total weight gain: I'm packing on the pounds nowadays. I think I'm up 4 pounds

Sleep: definitely better, I still have to get up and pee at least once a night which is obnoxious

Maternity Clothes: oh yeah

Food cravings : milk

Food Aversions: Depends, nothing consistently

Challenges: feeling huge and having baby kick my bladder a lot

Movement: still not totally consistent, but I get at least a few bladder kicks a day (like right now lol)

Boy or Girl?: drum roll please........it's a BOY!!!! We sent out announcements to our parents, siblings and grandparents in the mail the day after we found out. We sent them on a Friday and the following Monday was MLK day so we had to wait like 5 days for everyone to get them. It was so hard not to spill the beans! I'm so glad we did it that way. It was a surprise for everyone to get them which made it a lot more fun then just a call or a text.

What I’m looking forward to: the hubs being able to feel him move

What I miss: not having to get up to pee

Next appt: Feb. 7th.

19 weeks 3 days

How far along: 19 weeks 3 days

How big is baby: According to the Bump, (who likes to compare baby to fruits and veggies) he/she is the size of a mango...my what to expect app (still) says a mango. Is the first time they've said the same thing.

Total weight gain: I think I've finally smarted gaining weight. I think I've gained a pound since last week.

Sleep: it's okay, some nights are better then others

Maternity Clothes: definitely. I've been meaning to go back and try on my old jeans just to see how big my belly has gotten.

Food cravings : salad....not a bad thing :-)

Food Aversions: Depends, nothing consistently

Challenges: keeping the ultrasound details under wraps :-)

Movement: yup, nothing consistently, but a few thumps here and there.

Boy or Girl?: Ultrasound details (date/time/results) are on the down low for a little while longer

What I’m looking forward to: starting to get the baby's room together

What I miss: not having to get up to pee

Next appt: Next OB appt is Feb. 7th. The anatomy scan date is hush hush at the moment. Since we're not able to tell out family in person we're going to mail out announcements to our very immediate family and once they get them we'll announce on FB so that everyone else will find out about the same time. I want it to be a surprise when the announcements show up in the mail, it will be in the next 3 weeks though ;-) so vague, I know LOL

18 weeks 2 days



So I skipped last week....I kept thinking I was going to upload bump pics and add them to the post, but I never did and next thing I knew it was the next week :-/ lame I know. But, this week I do have pics to add/

How far along: 18 weeks 2 days

How big is baby: According to the Bump, (who likes to compare baby to fruits and veggies) he/she is the size of a sweet potato...my what to expect app says a mango

Total weight gain: I had an appointment last Monday and I was down a pound, I'm going to stick w/ +/-0

Sleep: It's definitely better, but some nights still suck. It's getting more difficult to find a comfy position.

Maternity Clothes: oh yeah! Luckily I wear scrubs everyday at work so I don't need a full wardrobe, but I have had to get a few things. My sis-in-law also sent me a couple shirts, a dress, and a pair of jeans which is great!

Food cravings :  Random things at random times.

Food Aversions: Lunches have been really difficult lately. For some reason nothing ever sounds good for lunch. I end up forcing myself to eat something so I don't start feeling nauseous.

Challenges: I've been sooooo sleepy lately. I can sleep for 12 hours and still feel ready for bed at 8 the next night. I was really looking forward to that 2nd trimester energy boost people always tell you about, but so far it's remaining elusive.

Movement: I don't really know. Sometimes I think I feel something, but I really have no idea. At my appt last Monday I could hear the baby moving all over the place when my OB was using the doppler.

Boy or Girl?: Don't know yet, but soon :-)

What I’m looking forward to: finding out if munchkin is a boy or a girl!

What I miss: feeling 100%. I'm always tired or nauseous or something

Next appt: Next OB appt is Feb. 7th. The anatomy scan date is hush hush at the moment. Since we're not able to tell out family in person we're going to mail out announcements to our very immediate family and once they get them we'll announce on FB so that everyone else will find out about the same time.

Without further ado, here are the promised bump pics. (I have to find a different spot in our house to take these. We always do them at night b/c I get home after dark so there's no natural light and the house lights make the color so weird, not to mention weird shadows.)

Looking at these again I almost look bigger at 17 weeks, either way the Pink Floyd shirt is getting tighter all the time :-)
