20 weeks!

Halfway there already! It seems like forever since I posted since I missed last week's update and at my doctor's appt. on Tuesday they moved my due date back to the original day of April 11th. So we're 8 days ahead of where we thought we were.  But they did an ultrasound and said that our baby GIRL looks perfectly healthy! So excited to meet her in April!

Forgive the sweat pants and t-shirts. It's about all that fits comfortably. I feel like Regina George.

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along: 20 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I was +4 pounds total on Tuesday. But I think I ate 4 pounds of green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and turkey yesterday so that may change by next week :)

Maternity Clothes: Not yet. My new jeans are already getting too tight though so we're going shopping for maternity jeans soon.  I also need longer shirts...not necessary maternity or a whole bunch bigger..just up a size probably. Hello T.J. Maxx!

Best Moment this Week: Getting to see our ACTIVE baby! She would NOT quit moving the whole time we were doing the ultrasound.

Gender: Sweet baby GIRL! Adelyn Kaylee :) We both just liked the name Adelyn and my mom's middle name is Kay and Jake's mom's middle name is Lee, which is how we got the middle name. Love her so much already!

Movement: I've definitely felt some of her activeness. At first I wasn't really sure and the doctor said with my placenta being in the front (TMI?) that it would be like feeling them through a pillow and since she's only 10 ounces there's not a lot of weight behind the kicks yet. However, this morning I woke up and definitely felt 4 or 5 little movements while laying in bed. So exciting! 

Food Cravings: With Thanksgiving this week, all I've wanted is mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.

Food aversions: Nothing new.

Symptoms/Changes: My stomach and back and starting to feel like they're stretching...which was super uncomfortable combined with how full I was yesterday.  My eyes are drying out a lot so I've been sporting glasses a lot lately. Clothes are starting to get tight!

Sleep:  I wake up a lot throughout the night still just trying to get comfortable. This week I was so excited about the ultrasound and everything that when I would wake up I'd stay awake for a long time just thinking about seeing our baby and then knowing she's a girl :)

What I am looking forward to: Feeling more little kicks and movements :)

I love bump updates! I did them with my kiddos too!!

PS. I'm almost positive your hubby was my server on Saturday. He works at RL, right?!?
If it was him (lol) he was the nicest/best server we've had in a while!
I didn't want to randomly ask him if he was your hubby because how do I explain I stalk your blog/instagram. LOL whoops!

Haha yeah that's where he works...I'll have to give him the compliment :)
And he probably wouldn't have found it too weird if you said something...I'm always telling him about blogs and I'm like you know the one girl's blog I follow and these are her kids and she went to high school with me but is a few years older than me...haha. He's probably heard stories from your blog :)
