I am officially halfway through this pregnancy! It's so crazy to say that, I feel like I JUST found out! It's already gone by so fast.
I am not really tired, but I have no energy if that makes sense. Making cookies seems impossible just about every day, but I have so many ideas that want to be created! The mr got me a sewing machine for Christmas so I plan to start on my lengthy list of crafts instead!
I bought this picture frame over a year ago and painted it in a lovely mint green shade. It's been sitting in our spare room for ever! After finding Charlene's blog Becoming the Barrs, I decided I was going to use the frame to document baby's growth month to month.
We're currently super excited to watch the NFC championship game today! GO HAWKS!
So here is how I am doing this week,
- How far along: 20 weeks on Sunday, already halfway done baking!
- Baby is the size of…: a mango, a banana or an eggplant depending on which one of my pregnancy apps you believe
- Weight gain: 10 pounds
- Baby Bump: Oh yes! Been showing for several weeks now and my belly button is getting close to being an outie!!
- Stretch Marks: None yet!
- Exercise: I try to get at least 35 minutes on the elliptical and low intensity stretches and weights several times a week.
- Cravings: Fresh fruit, loft house sugar cookies, girl scout cookies, waffles, starburst, dates, anything grapefruit...
- Mood: Happy and tired, but mostly HAPPY :D
- Sleep: A little more would be great, I am sleeping pretty well at night, but having CRAZY dreams and waking up sore.
- Wedding Ring: On
- Baby Name?: We've got baby girl covered, but not for a boy...
- Gender Prediction: Girl
- Movement: I think I am feeling movement, several times a day and at night!
- Maternity Clothes: I found some great maternity clothes at Pink Blush and luckily scored some awesome deals on cyber Monday.
- What I am looking forward too: Finding out who baby will be
- What I miss: Sleeping through the night (on my back!)
- Favorite thing this week: A totally sweet mint and gold surprise from my awesome friend Natasha! It's so perfectly perfect and unexpected and I just can't wait for baby N to get here and enjoy it!
