Week 20 Bumpdate


Bump Update

How far along? 20 weeks on 11/24

Total weight gain: 9 pounds at my last appointment on 19th. Oops. That's a lot.
 
Maternity clothes: I’m mainly wearing all maternity tops and pants now. I just got a bunch of tops from Old Navy. :)

Stretch marks: Unfortunately they have been there since I was younger seeing as though I have struggled with my weight all of my life.
    
Sleep: I've been sleeping well. I wake up and have to pee about every hour and a half now though. :/

Best moment this week: I heard his heartbeat last week on Wednesday. It was 153bpm.

Miss anything? Wine
 
Food cravings: Everything. I love having my appetite back, but I also hate it. I'm gaining too much too fast because everything tastes so good now.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.

Gender: BOY!!!!

Symptoms: I'm peeing a lot more. My chest is getting bigger. I am extremely exhausted all of the time. Sometimes feeling the round ligament pains and lower back pains. Other than that, I'm great!
 
Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: When I am at work I am moody. When I am home, I am happy, but oh so tired. I don't think this will change.
 
Looking forward to: Seeing him in less than a week!

Bump Update

How far along? 19 weeks

Week 18 Bumpdate


Bump Update

How far along? 18 weeks

Total weight gain: 3 pounds at my last appointment. I am afraid to step on my scale at home.

Maternity clothes: I’m wearing some regular clothes and some maternity tops/pants.

Stretch marks: Unfortunately they have been there since I was younger seeing as though I have struggled with my weight all of my life.
    
Sleep:I've been trying to sleep on my side lately because I heard that my uterus and baby are getting big enough to press on the large veins in the back of my abdomen which can reduce the amount of blood going to my heart. I am a stomach sleeper, so this has been very hard for me to do. 
My sister just had her baby daughter a few weeks ago, so she is giving me her wrap around body pillow to use.

Best moment this week: Feeling Jordan kick at 17 weeks and 1 day. It was an amazing feeling. 
We got him a pack n' play this week and set it up. We also ordered the bookcase for his nursery and I cannot wait to get it and put it together. Well, Mike will probably put it together. I get frustrated with putting furniture together. Mainly because I don't like to read directions. lol

Miss anything? I still miss having some drinks with my babe. I so want some wine. On the bright side, I am 4 months sober! ;) 

Food cravings: Too many to list. We went grocery shopping last night and I was hungry and craving a lot. Needless to say, our bill way pretty high.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope. My appetite is back and I haven't been feeling sick at all.

Gender: BOY!!!!

Symptoms: I'm peeing a lot more. My chest is getting bigger. I am extremely exhausted all of the time. I'm starting to feel those round ligament pains. Other than that, I'm great!
 
Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: When I am at work I am moody. When I am home, I am happy, but oh so tired. I don't think this will change.
 
Looking forward to: My doctor's appointment to hear Jordan's heartbeat next week.

The Missing Weeks - Bump Photos

I'm sorry that I've disappeared for about 3 weeks. Between parent/teacher conferences and having my evaluation this past week, I have been super busy. 

At 15 weeks, we went to The Belly Factory to find out the gender. We also got pictures that I never posted. We are going back at the beginning of the December to get better face pictures. Here's my sweet little boy....





 
Here are the bump pictures that I missed. I gave up on letters to Jordan. I just don't have time right now to continue with them. :/

10/20
10/27
11/3 I never got around to taking a pic by the chalkboard.
I will be posting an 18 week photo shortly.
