20 Weeks (aka HALFWAY!!!)

Well here we are! They don’t lie when they say the 2nd pregnancy flies by. At this point with Jake, the nursery was almost complete…


Let’s just say nothing in our house looks any different than it did when we found out about this baby in October. Pretty sure I will be frantically trying to finish a room at 39 weeks this time. At least I’ve started looking at bedding and decor for Jake’s BIG BOY room (agh!!).

I know you’re all going to roll your eyes and scoff but I feel like a hippo! But people are still telling me I don’t even look pregnant (bless you all) so that makes me feel better. :)

(Left – Jake…Right – Baby #2)

I’m 20 Weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 20 Weeks

Size of Baby: Size of a banana
Total Weight Gain: 10 lbs (I can’t decide how long I will disclose this info!!)
Maternity Clothes: Not yet. Pretty sure I couldn’t button my jeans at this point with Jake so this is progress!
Gender: Maybe a boy but we find out for sure on Thursday!
Movement: It’s really picked up in the past few weeks. Little baby moves a lot in the evenings and Seth was able to feel the other night.
Sleep: Still love my sleep!
What I Miss: Having my body to myself.
Cravings: Coffee ice cream (duh), blueberry waffles, Wheat Thins, Coca Cola, CEREAL
Symptoms: mostly back pain
Best Moment this Week: ummmmmm…maybe it will be our appt on Thursday!

We don’t have any progress on a name, if you were wondering. There are a couple front-runners but nothing we’re crazy about. And one name we really like is taken by a family member so……back to square one!

I’ll be sure to update everyone later this week once we have confirmation on the baby’s gender…
