20 Weeks Down, 20 More To Go!

20 Week Bump Board 

HALF WAY
I am posting this update a few days early due to the Thanksgiving Holiday coming and Black Friday! I am already struggling to keep up with it all and I knew it would only get worse as the week continued! So as I always say, on that note on to my 20 week update! 

This week I struggled with round ligament pains and cramps in my lower abdomen. I feel like she is extremely low and I foresee these cramps being common as I grow larger! I had Army Drill this past weekend and the first morning I could button my pants I woke up the next morning and couldn't even come close after having horrible pains all Saturday! I am just relieved and happy that she is growing and healthy. I can't wait to meet my baby girl. My perfect family will be complete.



T
his week's big developments: For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against their torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of its head to its bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, she is measured from head to toe. She's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for her digestive system. She's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in her bowels, and you'll see it in her first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).



How far along? 19 weeks!

Total weight gain/loss: +6lbs

Maternity clothes? My size zero pants are finally getting too tight! 

Stretch marks? No new ones. Applying lotion and bio oil like crazy! 

Sleep: I AM SO SLEEPY!!!!!!

Best moment this week: I feel as if my belly finally POPPED this week. I feel HUGE. 

Miss Anything? I miss my clothes fitting! Ha

Movement: I love feeling her movements. 

Food cravings: Milk and Chocolate this week! Probably why I gained 3 lbs! Ha

Anything making you queasy or sick: Red Meat, Potato Chips & Car Rides

Have you started to show yet: YESSSSSS! Bring on the baby bump!

Belly Button in or out? In. It never popped out with Brayden. 

Wedding rings on or off? On and loose. 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Finally getting back to my jolly self. Just crazy sleepy along with it! 

Looking forward to: Actually seeing movements and having a big baby bump! 


Starting weight 119lb Starting waist measuremenst 31in.
