Pregnancy Diary: 20 Weeks


Look at the cute little profile!

Face from straight on.

Can you guess what it is?


I am half way through my pregnancy, which is crazy! Here is an update:

-This week I found out that it's a BOY bump! He so obviously is. During the ultrasound the technician didn't even have to tell me. Once I saw the screen I said, "It's a boy isn't it?" I really am happy.
-Nathan confessed that he actually thought is was a girl, and that he kinda wanted it to be, but he is looking forward to having a boy too. A little baseball player.
-We have no idea what to name him...it is kinda stressful actually!
-Baby boy likes to play around at night right before I go to bed. I can only feel him in the inside. No kicks can be felt on top of my stomach yet.
-Total weight gain: 7lbs. I gained 2 lbs. since my last appointment. I was actually really surprised that it was only 2 lbs because I feel like I've doubled in size.
-I still don't have a very big appetite. I eat when I should, but cannot eat too much in one sitting.
-I threw up for the first time about 2 weeks ago! I was in bed taking a picture of my dogs on my phone when all of a sudden I started to feel queezy. I new I was going to throw up. I went to the bathroom, put my hair up and BAM! I felt totally fine afterward.
-I get up to pee once on most nights.
-Cravings: none
-My skin seems to have nice healthy glow to it. It's like a natural little tan.
-For a while now, I've been putting lotion on my stomach to combat any stretch marks.
-My students are starting to ask more questions about the baby and pregnancy. I think it's because my stomach is becoming more noticeable.
-I can still fit in my clothes. The Bellaband has become my best friend and I have one in nude, white, and black. They keep my pre-pregnancy pants up. Very important!
-I've become very aware of my belly and I can't seem to take my hands off it.
-Nathan has started touching my belly more too, which I love.

Things are still going really smoothly. I love that he has more of an identity now and I look forward to planning color schemes and going shopping for him! I love my growing belly because what's inside is just too precious.
