20 Weeks

How far along? 20 weeks

Weight gain? 15 lbs as of last week, but I haven't stepped on the scales this week

Baby is the size of - a banana

Maternity clothes? two words = LOVE THEM

Stretch marks? Still in the clear when it comes to stretch marks…now if only the noticeable cellulite would pump the breaks.  Not very appealing at all!

Sleep?  I've still been sleeping pretty well this week.  Even though, Okie has decided his spot in bed in under the covers is wedged between me and my pregnancy pillow!

Miss anything? Being able to move around a lot without getting light headed or winded!

Cravings? No new cravings this week

Anything make you queasy or sick? Negative

Symptoms?  Headaches, I'm accepting the fact that this will be a nonstop part of pregnancy.

Belly button - in or out? In and wonky

Wedding rings - on or off? ON!

Any movement? Yes!! I feel him quite often and for the first time, John got to feel him kick this week! So exciting and fun to be able to feel out little mister!

Happy or moody? Happy with a side of moodiness…. Hey everyone is entitled to those moments, pregnant or not!

Looking forward to -  Getting started on the nursery, we are going with an all sports theme!  Also, I'm looking forward to the next doctor's appointment so I can stop worrying.  At the last ultrasound, I was told that my placenta hadn't moved up like it was supposed to.  Although, I was told that it is somewhat common, it's still a worry in the back of my mind.

Interesting week 20 fact -  Your baby has established sleep patterns akin to a newborn now.  Many babies even have a favorite sleep position already.  Taste buds have also formed.

We've been working on the baby registry a lot the past few days.  I've really enjoyed picking out things that we'd love to have for Jaxon!  As first time parents it's hard not to get all wrapped up in the "newborn" aspect of it all but I've tried to be smart about our registry and pick some things through the stages beyond newborn.  We are registered at Amazon (click to see our registry) and also Babies-R-Us (click to see registry) if anyone would like to check it out!  If you have any suggestions for things we should add, please let us know!  We are hoping that people actually buy from our registry as we've put a lot of time into creating it!

It's been another week of unpacking and organizing at the house.  We finally have more empty boxes in the garage than we have full boxes.  Getting things settled in and organized feels so good!  I still find it hard to believe that we have a house and a yard and real back porch!  For those that know what we just moved from, you understand why we are so thrilled about a porch and yard!  Heck, we are excited about the fact we have a driveway as well!  The past two weekends we've had an electrician out and we've made some big changes to the house.  We now have lighting in all the bedrooms as well as lighting on both sides of the garage, working motion lights and an above range microwave.  We updated the outdoor fixtures and we updated the two ceiling fans that were in the house when we bought it.  We have some other big changes we plan on soon, such as getting rid of the carpet on the stairs and in the hallway, but we are happy that the major electrical work is behind us now!  Also this week we were able to get satellite and internet setup!
