How far along? 20 weeks, 2 days
How big is baby? About as long as a banana! Kind of weird that I've been eating them for breakfast all week.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Probably around 5 lbs. That's what you get for being a fatty: slow weight gain.
Next Appointment: Big U/S: Take 2 is this week. Next appointment with Doc Holiday (my OB) is in August.
Maternity Clothes: Yep. Comfy pants are my life.
Sleep: It comes and goes. Sometimes I have a great night of sleep, but most nights I'm struggling to get comfortable or it's hard to stay asleep. I don't know how I'll function when I go back to work.
Best Moment This Week: Lots of little guy movement this week! Kiddo loves Mountain Dew as much as I do, apparently.
Annoyance of the Week: Still hearing, "You don't look pregnant at all!" from everyone. Doc Holiday says I'll be wishing I could hear that in a few months, but for now I'll take it. I think I look pregnant--I'm starting to see major growth in the weekly photos. I think I really went through a fat period that no one wants to comment on.
Movement: I've noticed some movement in previous weeks after eating or drinking something sugary, but this week it's been crazy, like a frat party's going on in there. Kinda wish I had an invite.
Planning/Preparation: So much to do, including reading more of those books and signing up for the Great Expectations program at the hospital.
Belly Button In/Out: Flatter than it was, but still an innie. I'll cry A LOT if it pops.
Gender: This time tomorrow we'll have an answer one way or the other, dammit!
What I Miss: Wine. Summer Shandy. Margaritas. Beer in general. Pizza just isn't the same without it.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Our trip this weekend. I can't wait to get to New York and just chill out.
Contractions: Not that I'm feeling.
Milestones? Nothing new this week, which is fine. I guess the kid can hear (supposedly) according to all the books and websites, so Graham says I need to start watching my language. We'll see how successful that is....
