Happy Friday everyone!
I took yesterday off to enjoy the Jewish New Year with the family and we had a blast. The lateness on this post is due to the food coma and exhaustion that occurred after dinner last night!
I figured since I am officially 20 weeks today I would do my first baby/bump update. For years I’ve been reading them on other wonderful blogs that I follow and it’s hard to believe that I’m actually writing one now!
How far along: 20 weeks
Total weight gain: Not totally sure– I lost about 5 pounds in the first trimester and put all that back on plus another 4-6 pounds I’ll know a little more when I head to the doctor next week.
Maternity clothes: I’m wearing maternity jeans, leggings (my favorite) and pants. Tops are lots of open long sweaters and a couple of maternity tanks. Whenever I can I wear dresses. I’m really lucky that I have some amazing friends that are loaning me some great clothes since most of my stuff from 6 years ago is outdated or doesn’t fit right.
Sleep: Pretty good! I get up once to go the bathroom and thankfully the first trimester insomnia has passed. In the beginning I was up most nights from 2-4:30am! During the week I am in bed most nights by 9pm and often fall asleep on the couch before that.
Miss anything: While it feels good to be running again I miss running fast! I’ve slowed down a ton and take plenty of walking breaks. There are often mornings when all I do is walk.
Movement: Yes!! All the time! The hubs felt one kick a few days ago too.
Food cravings: Apples, hardboiled eggs, celery, nut butter, cheese and carbs!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Fish, chicken and most meat. I am finding ways to sneak in grass fed beef or bison into my diet once or twice a week. I also can’t look at a green smoothie either 🙁
Have you started to show yet: Yes! I felt like I started to show at 10 weeks but it’s now gone from questionable to a real baby bump!
Gender: Nope! We are waiting to find out! We did the same with Sara. There are few surprises in life and this is one of them!
Wedding rings on or off: On
Looking forward to: My ultrasound next week and more movement that both the Hubs and Sara can feel on a regular basis!
