20 Weeks

Definitely feeling like I've "popped" this week!

Weeks along: 20

What's new with baby: Baby is now the size of a banana (one of my favorite fruits). At our appointment we found out that he is 11 ounces (49% percentile which is perfect!). He's swallowing amniotic fluid every day which gets him ready to take his first breath - still crazy to think about!

Maternity Clothes: Wearing mostly maternity tops and pants, with the exception of a few shirts that are long enough to still wear.

Symptoms: Feeling great. After a rough couple of weeks, now that the kitchen back splash is done and we know Baby M is officially a mister I've been enjoying this pregnancy more and more.

Cravings: Give me alllllll the Thanksgiving foods. Especially pie :-)

Workouts: This one I can't remember...I think it was par for the course with this pregnancy in that I got in a workout 2-3 days out of the week.

Baby Purchases: Baby clothes galore! After the gender reveal on Friday my mom and I made a trip specifically just to buy little man some things. N and I also went to the second hand store by our house and found a new Halo Bassinet that they knocked down to $99. We scooped it up along with a like-new Baby Bjorn carrier, a baby bottle drying rack and a diaper changing organizer. I'm a sucker for a good deal so it was so nice finding like-new baby items at such a great price!

High point of the week: Our gender reveal party with our family and friends, along with the fantastic news that our little guy is measuring along just fine and looks healthy!

Concerns/Issues:  Sleep, oh how I miss you. My belly has reached the point where I can't lay on it, and my doctor told me at my appointment that I should be mostly sleeping on my left side. I've been going to bed early, but I wake up at least 3-4x at night wide awake. I just can't get comfortable.

Missing: Nothing this week

Sleep: See above, It's spotty at best, but I'm sure I'll look back when little man is born and think how silly I was to complain.

Looking forward to: Getting the nursery put together and meeting our boy! It's hard to believe this pregnancy is already halfway over.


  1. I don't know if it would help you but I got a body pillow when I started getting uncomfortable sleeping with my son, I'd put it between my legs and then rest my belly on it so I could sleep on my side. I went from terrible sleep to okay sleep. I still had to pee all the time!!! Congrats on it being a boy!

    1. Thank you! And did you use a snoogle? I've been looking at investing in one, and they seem to be the most popular. Anything that helps me out in the sleep department I will welcome with open arms!
