20 Weeks Pregnant **Halfway There**

How far along: 20 weeks-Halfway done :)

Size of baby: about 6.5 from head to bottom. and about 10.5 ounces.

Total weight gain/loss: +9 lbs. (although my scale at home says I'm only up 7 pounds total, so I think I'm going to stick to that one!)

Maternity clothes: mainly non-maternity clothes. Surprisingly, I can still wear most of my jeans, buttoned up and everything!! With Lila, I was in maternity jeans at 16 weeks (she made my hips and butt HUGE!). 

Gender: a GIRL!

Movement: Yes!! I started feeling little Alli a little after the 17 week mark, which is about two weeks sooner than Lila (because the placenta is in a different place). It is such a neat feeling, and I love feeling her moving and grooving in there. 

Contractions: I started having Braxton-Hicks contractions at around 18 weeks, which is MUCH earlier than last time, which I hear is completely normal for your second pregnancy. Although they are annoying, it's good that my body is already starting to get ready for labor.

Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty good right now, although I'm still getting used to not being able to sleep on my back. This is the first week I've had to be careful about that, and it's hard to get used to! I also hate not being able to sleep on my tummy, but the side sleeping is going well so far. 

What I miss: everything!! I have wanted wine and champagne much more this pregnancy, but haven't given in yet.  I've also wanted sushi (the good, raw kind!) more than last time.

Cravings: Cheetos, anything sweet (mainly chocolate), and deli sandwiches (yeah I know they're supposed to be a no-no, but I just try to not have them everyday!)

Best moment this week: Since Josh had to get back underway on the boat for the week through the weekend, we are so glad to be in Destin, Florida (our old hometown) for the long weekend visiting with my parents and sister. On Saturday, I will be going to a sorority sister's wedding on the beach near Panama City, so I'm looking forward to catching up with many of my college friends.
