Today was the big day…20 weeks!
I am so relieved that I’ve made it this far–halfway done and baby’s healthy and happy!
I know you all want the good stuff, but first, some stats (Saw this on another blog and thought it was cute!):
Weight gain: I finally braved the scale and looked at my weight today–I’ve gained 5 lbs this first half. Which may sound like an accomplishment (especially for me..hellooo chocolate chip cookies!), but I started at 10 lbs overweight, so really it’s not. Nonetheless, I’m staying optimistic.
Maternity Clothes: Still working the belly band. Oh yeah. Note: avoid shopping behind me, as my jeans have been known to fall off.
Sleep: Broke out the body pillow this week! It’s finally to the point of feeling uncomfortable when I sleep on my belly. I’ll forever be grateful to my sister for her body pillow Christmas present.
What I miss: Alcohol beverages, my friend. I can not wait to enjoy a cool summer drink!
What I am looking froward to: Breaking out the baby clothes!
Milestone: Um…we looked at cars today. 3 carseats in one vehicle is a big step.
Size of baby: Baby is weighing in at 12 ounces, which apparently is in the 70th percentile for weight at this age. I have hefty babies.
For the moment you have been waiting for:
Boy or Girl??
In honor of the moment, I have a special giveaway:
Jen Brady photography is giving away a newborn photo shoot, complete with all images on a CD! Jen is a new photographer who I had the honor of meeting when I actually took her engagement pictures! She’s a lot of fun and she is offering this giveaway for my blog readers–all you have to do is vote what you think the baby’s gender is in a comment below, and I’ll pick a winner tomorrow when I reveal the answer!
Oh, and here’s the dreaded 20 week belly pic. My husband said I look like a walrus.
