20 Weeks: Halfway There!


Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 20 weeks
Size of baby: About 6.5 inches long, the length of a banana
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 5 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yes. Pants and shirts. Except the pants don't really fit, so boo to that. Also, I can probably get away with regular shirts, but I don't feel like stretching them out unnecessarily.
Gender: We're having a GIRL! Name to be announced soon :)
Movement: This girl is a mover! I feel her wiggling around all the time these days, although she's most active at night.
Sleep: I'm sleeping great right now once I can finally get to sleep. Seriously, insomnia can just go away. I took a Unisom last night which helped, but this is no bueno.
What I miss: Having properly fitting clothing to wear
Cravings: Nothing healthy, that's for sure! I love chips these days, so I'm trying to at least keep it to potato and tortilla chips so it's a little healthier. Or at least the fewest ingredients. Sigh, I'm gonna have some serious work to do with my eating habits after this girl is born. 
Symptoms: My stomach just keeps on getting bigger, so I'd say that's a pretty obvious symptom.
Best Moment this week: Buying things for our sweet girl! Haha, we don't need a lot for her because we have Avery's clothes (minus the entire box of 12 month clothes that went missing after I lent it out and I'm still a little bitter about) and any baby gear we could "need," but it was fun getting her some adorable Carter's outfits at their outlet last week. She should have some clothes that aren't hand-me-downs, right??

So yay for being halfway to meeting her! And yay that I actually don't hate being pregnant this time around!

So Excited for you guys! What is Avery's reaction to everything? Is she excited? Does she get it?
