Our Five Ring Circus: 20 Weeks!!!

20 Weeks!!!

I'm officially at the halfway point! Actually, I probably passed that point a week or two ago, which is why the panic is setting in. I just want to get everything done in case I get put on bed rest. With my history of preterm labor, I never know what's going to happen!

March 21, 2011

How far along:
20 weeks

Total Weight Gained:
All loss so far.

How big is baby? Nugget weighs around 10 1/2 ounces, and measures 10 inches long. He/She is about the size of banana.

How baby is growing: Nugget is swallowing more and producing meconium. babycenter.com

Maternity Clothes: My regular clothes are still loose. Actually, my pants seem even looser! I'm not sure how that's possible, since my uterus is up to my belly button now!

Sleep: I'm still sleeping really well!

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
Feeling Nugget kick, even when I'm out and about!

: The kicks are getting much stronger and more frequent. Nugget is a busy, strong baby!

Food Cravings: None, but when I do eat, I want anything sweet!

Food Aversions:
My list of food aversions is constantly growing. This week it's macaroni and cheese (one of my favorites!) and cooked tomatoes!

Morning Sickness:
I'm still sick, but getting used to it. I do seem to be vomiting less, though, thank God!

We didn't find out! We've had the names picked out since December.

Nausea morning to night, gagging, vomiting, constant headaches, breakouts, constipation, and round ligament pain.

Exercise: Getting moderate exercise 4-5 days a week on the treadmill. I keep up with it, because it makes me feel better, despite the morning (all day!) sickness.

What I miss:
Being nausea and headache free!

What I'm looking forward to:
Seeing my baby bump!
