Pregnancy #2: 20 weeks

by ericakingston

We are HALFWAY!

Five months down. This pregnancy has gone by 50x faster. Not complaining.

photoHow far along: 20 weeks, 5 days

Total weight gain: Don’t even have a guess… I’ll find out Monday at my appointment.

Maternity clothes: Yes. With Jack, all I wanted were the maternity pants and leggings with the full belly panel. It was nice security. This time, I like having my belly free. I like loose tank tops and low waisted sweatpants. It’s sloppy, but when we are home most of the day, it works.

Sleep: Extraordinarily well. In the morning when I get 15 minutes of sleep after putting Jack back down at 5:30, I have wild, crazy dreams. The other night, Scott said he took around 10 phone calls during the night for work. I didn’t wake up once.

Best moment this week: We celebrated Scott’s 27th birthday on Monday. I love birthdays. Baby has been moving around a lot more this week. It makes me actually feel pregnant and I spend a lot of the day dreaming about what life will be like with two kids. Oh, and I taught Jack (for about 3 minutes) how to kick a ball and he spent the afternoon kicking it all around the yard. Smart cookie, we have.

What I miss: Life without heartburn.

Movement: A lot this past week!!!

Food cravings: Peanut butter sandwiches.

Making me queasy: Heartburn, literally. It was so bad one night I went to the bathroom to puke. This kid better have a crazy head of baby hair.

Starting to show: I think about two days ago by belly grew twice its size. I am sore from what feels like the quick weight.

Gender: Our ultrasound is on Monday!!!!! I cannot wait to see Baby and praying he/she cooperates so we can find out. We have a few names that we both agreed on, so I’m really excited to put a name to this babe. With Jack, we found out he was a boy and named him on the way home from the clinic 🙂

Happy or moody: Happy.

Things I’ve been experiencing lately: Soreness and heartburn. Jack pushing on my belly. Middle of the night peeing has begun. Forgot how annoying that was.

What I’m looking forward to: ULTRASOUND!!!

What I’m nervous about: Just anxious about finding out the little gremlin or gremlina’s gender 😉

Size of baby: Cantelope

This happened while we were watching Vines yesterday morning. That peaceful feeling when you feel your child calm and sink into your neck cannot be matched.
