20 Weeks

Size of Baby: 6.5 inches and 10.5 ounces - Size of a banana

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I am thinking this week we will be up 10 pounds... :(  I will let you know after our appointment on Tuesday

Maternity Clothes: Yes...  I now am strictly in my work pants (see above and below) and my skinny jeans.  I am not real happy with all my work pants though because I bought larges (thinking my big bootay would need them - which I still might!) and they are so baggy!  I really feel fatter when I am in them then my skinny jeans or khakis.  Hoping I get some more jeans and dress pants for Christmas... Hint, hint!

Gender: GIRL... Ellison Kathryn

Movement: Yes and I am still stressing the freak out when I go an hour or two without feeling EK move.  My mom and The Hubs keep telling me to calm down but I can't help it!  

Belly Button: In - and this might be TMI but I have a very deep belly button.  It never even thought about popping out with TB and unless EK comes out as a 6 month old I don't foresee it popping out for EK either.  

Interesting Facts: Elli Kate is swallowing more and also producing meconium this week...Which T will get the honors of changing after D-Day ;)

Sleep: Pretty much nonexistent but I am not complaining because Little Miss Elli Kate cooking to full term is all Im worried about. 

What I miss: Not going to lie...This week, I missed a glass of wine or a martini.  We had a long week and I worked a lot of overtime... Which equaled stressed!!!  I very rarely drink but an occasionally glass of wine would have been nice.  

What I am looking forward to: Doctor appointment this week!  Christmas! and spending lots and lots of time with the fam!!!

Cravings/Aversions: Still water and carbs.  Oh, and White Chocolate Oreos!!!!  You know the kind they only sell at Christmas time... Oh how I wish I would have never have eaten one!

Symptoms: Indigestion!!! Restlessness... Swelling!  Oh the swelling, it's official!!!  If it is after 5pm then I no longer have ankles.  My legs go like this: thighs, knees, calfs and toes!  

Best Moment This Week: T feeling EK move :)  He has felt her twice and its pretty awesome!  I have been feeling her for weeks now and honestly I think he was over me talking about how awesome it was... Now, he agrees!

Weekly Wisdom: Prop those feet up!  The dishes, laundry and house will all be there later to wash and clean so keep that baby cooking!

19 Week... My "At Least Halfway Mark"Please

Please excuse the way I look...I had to work 10.5 hours today :(  Notice Jingles in the background...? He's been awful mischievous lately. 
Me and My Baby...Who by the way swears she's not a baby... Because babies don't pee in their panties. 

Size of Baby: 8.5 ounces - Heirloom Tomato (not really sure what that is...)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Not a clue, I don't own a scale! 

Maternity Clothes: Yes! See horrible picture :)

Gender: Precious, baby GIRL! EK

Movement: More and more everyday!  And baby girl does not need caffeine.  If I drink a coke then she goes crazy!!!

Sleep: Is few and far between but that's okay, I'm not complaining.  

What I miss: Nothing... Well I'm lying, Im missing a few things this week but there is NOTHING I miss bad enough to wish I wasn't preggers.

What I am looking forward to: My next appointment!  It is in two weeks and at that appointment I will schedule our 4D ultrasound!  Also, I will schedule my last regular ob appointment.  Since I am high risk my last regular appointment will be in January.  And honestly, I'm super excited about that.  I have been driving myself crazy now that I can feel EK moving.  If I go a while without feeling her I start to panic.  I drink a coke, lay down and wait... So hearing her sweet little heart beat every two weeks will help ease the time and stress :)

Cravings/Aversions: Water, Water and more Water!!!  Baby girl is probably afloat in there

Symptoms: Just the regular pregnancy symptoms...Nothing I can't live with though.

Best Moment This Week: Feeling EK more and more :)  It's been a long week!

Weekly Wisdom: Just because you wore 4 inch heels to deliver your first child doesn't mean you will with your second!  Just because you NEVER swelled with your first child doesn't mean you won't swell with your second.
