20 weeks

Josh and I cracked up over the picture above.  (In pictures with other people I think it looks good, just for me I feel so silly.) It's a running joke back from when we took our engagement pics.  The photographer LOVED him some "looking down/pondering life" pictures so like half of them are of us  looking at the ground.  Although now at least I have something to look at other than the ground ;).  So Josh made me take this one.

Pregnancy Tidbits:

How far along? 20 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 10 lbs

Maternity clothes? Other than a few tanks from Target and a belly band I'm living in maxi dresses/skirts for now.

Stretch marks? I have a few on my hips but they were there before baby.  So no, not from pregnancy at least.

Sleep: Pretty decent considering I wake up 4 times a night to pee.  I get a little uncomfortable at times so I will be investing in a body pillow asap.

Best moment this week: Feeling the baby more and more.  Love it!

Miss Anything? Wine.  What is new? :)  Oh, and the extra caffeine I can't have other than my one cup a day now.

Movement: I feel him/her the most at night and it's just little pokes right now.  I feel them all over my lower abdomen. 

Food cravings: Lemons, peaches, sweets, chips, jalapenos?? weird.  I have never eaten a jalapeno in my life. I discovered my love for them when I ordered some nachos at a Cubs game recently.  So good together.  Who knew??

Anything making you queasy or sick?: Nope

Have you started to show yet: To people I know definitely.  To strangers I'm not really sure.  Something is definitely there though!

Gender: We will see!!!

Belly Button in or out? It's basically flat at this point.

Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!!

Looking forward to: Friday and seeing my mom!

....ANNNND a couple of embarrassing moments...

*I keep a hidden bag of my favorite cookies in the back of the pantry for after Josh goes to bed! Don't worry, he has some ice cream/snacks if he wants anything sweet.  If you're reading this sorry babe!  I am NOT proud of this.  I repeat NOT proud.

*For the first time in my life I almost ran out of gas.  I am usually the crazy person that fills up if my tank is anywhere near 1/4 of a tank left.  The other morning I drove up to Target, looked down to see I had approximately zero miles left.  I freaked thinking I was taking a ride with Mr. Tow Truck man but thankfully I made it to the gas station.  This whole situation was so weird to me.  Can I just blame this on "pregnancy brain"??


  1. Hey there! Found you from hopping around blog land! Looking forward to following your pregnancy journey! I must say it was your pup Huck who also reeled me in! We have a Finn and when we get pup #2 it will most def be Huck. So I can have Huck & Finn!! Your newest follower!

  2. Congratulation!!! My friend's baby was 21 weeks old, and the baby will born at January 2014.
    Black Tea

  3. You sound like my twin! I miss wine too (every week I miss it, pathetic? Probably so...) and I always feel the baby more at night (until about 24 wks) now I feel him more all the time. But I still feel him most at night! Love your teeny tiny bump!
