20 week update

20 week update

How far along: 20 weeks - they kept my due date at sept 2, so I lost a week - I don't personally agree because they are still basing that on my 7 week ultrasound, not on my 9 week or my 20 week or my cycle, plus they say if it's close to a week off, they won't change it....hmmm. So if this one goes early like Lucy, could be August 10 or if late and Sept 2 is an accurate due date, could be sept 10, so basically have to be ready to go at any moment for a whole month?!?!

Total weight gain: up one pound - with that said, I was heavier than I should have been when I got pregnant :)

Best moments this month: the ultrasound, though short, was very sweet and surreal. SO thankful that everything looks good, baby is growing well and moving LOTS. Heard the heartbeat again yesterday - 155 but Dr. could barely get it, little one was moving around constantly.

Food cravings: not much, though wanting more sweets and ice cream, etc more than in the past 4 months...

Gender: Though it was a tough call - we both were questioning if we should find out or not a little - in the end we didn't :)

Belly button in or out: wouldn't say it's much of an inny anymore, though not out...yet....eeks

Labor signs: nope

What I miss: not much, though I am feeling quite round and big in my belly lately! i know its a good thing though :)

What I am looking forward to: Joe being done teaching his class at the college. In a couple weeks we will have a lot more evenings together, hooray! Just in time for the nice weather. Am hoping for lots of walks into town, to the popcorn shop, summer concerts in the park, for ice cream, to the outdoor market...!

Milestones: seeing the baby on the ultrasound screen, reaching the halfway mark, seeing the growth of the little one through my belly growing, the baby getting to 1 lb. All wonderful things!
