How far along: 20 weeks and 4 days...HALFWAY DONE!
Total weight gain: +12.5 lbs -This was a very indulgent month with an out of town wedding in Charleston and Virginia Beach. We definitely ate well :)
Maternity clothes: Still wearing a good mixture. Maternity shirts are getting more practical because they are longer, but I'm still wearing my regular skinny jeans. I have worn some maternity shorts, but I can't wait until it's warm enough to wear dresses every day.
Stretch marks: Just the old ones on my chest that have popped up again.
Sleep: Luckily, I've been sleeping so hard this past month, but I've also been pretty tired throughout the afternoon too. Third pregnancies are hard with two little ones to take care of also!
Best moment of this week: Visiting Charleston and Virginia Beach for the weekend for two of my best childhood friend's weddings. Congrats to Kristin and Brenden and Jeff and Taylor!
Miss anything: So so much...wine, soft cheeses, cold deli meat (although I have indulged a bit), and raw tuna. I was definitely missing alcohol during all of these wedding celebrations!
Movement: Yes :) best feeling ever! I love feeling those baby kicks and squirms. The ultrasound tech was a little surprised at how much he moves and seems to think we'll have another wild baby on our hands.
Food cravings: Still about the same...lots of salty foods: Nachos, pizza, pickles, doritos, cheetos. I've also wanted tons of fruit this time, which was different than with both girls
Anything making you queasy or sick: I'll still get random headaches, but it's much better than it had been earlier. Other than the headaches, if I eat too much, I'll feel sick because my stomach is already feeling squished.
Have you started to show yet: I feel like I look huge, although everyone else seems to think I look small (or they're just being nice haha). My belly is definitely bigger at this point than it ever has been I think, but then again it is my third time around.
Gender: BOY!!! still in shock four weeks later! Grant Joshua Gentry
Labor signs: The lovely Braxton Hicks started around 18 weeks.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happier this month due to more energy and feeling better, but I also am starting to feel big and stretched already. I can't imagine what I'm going to feel like in 20 more weeks!
