#2 - 20 Weeks



How far along: 20 weeks + 6 days

Total weight gain: My most recent appointment was last week and based on that I am +.5 lbs. Boo to gaining weight, but cheers to being able to eat.

Maternity clothes: Mostly yes. I am definitely wearing maternity capris and shorts. Now that the news is public, I've been wearing tighter maternity shirts as well.

Stretch marks: Not anymore than normal.

Sleep: Pretty good. I slightly wake when switching sides (plus I have this crazy maternity pillow that I love), and sleep through any urge to get up and use the restroom. If I get up to go the bathroom, I know I will be awake for at least 2 hours. No thanks!

Best moment of this week: Well, last week we had our big ultrasound to find out the gender and make sure everything else looked okay. I was excited to finally share the news publicly (courtesy of the lovely graphic posted above). If you do not understand the beauty of the announcement, then we can't be friends. Like her sister, E, this baby wouldn't model appropriately and we will have another ultrasound at the next appointment to get a closer look at her spine.

Miss anything: Deli sandwiches. All I want is a Publix sub or meal from Jimmy Johns. Yes, I am aware that most people heat up the lunchmeat to kill listeria, but my doctor advised against it. He shared these thoughts when J was in the room so I was told no twice. If you come visit me in the hospital, please bring a sub.

Movement: Around 16 weeks I started to notice the "flutters" more. It's still the best feeling ever.

Food cravings: Carbs - I am still on a Chipotle kick. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not so much anymore. I still get waves of nausea, but it has mostly disappeared. 

Have you started to show yet: Yup. I will never rock a cute bump, but it's definitely there. E loves to kill my belly. <insert all the feels>

Gender: Baby BRAM2 (Britney or Cam) is............... ANOTHER BRITNEY!!!!!!!! 
Parent reactions: 
Me - "I knew it! Two weddings."
J - "If she's anything like my first, then we are good."

Labor signs: Gosh no. Prayers for a non-eventful pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

Belly button in or out: In.

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and tired. I'm excited for another baby, but anxious at the same time.

Looking forward to: Getting E's room done and possibly changing up the nursery for this one. It's perfectly designed for a little girl (since it was E's), but I may swap out the coral color for aqua. Decisions. Decisions.
