How am I already halfway there??? I’m now in my 5th month, and all of a sudden, everything seems to be in high-gear. In the beginning, I was so eager for it to feel “real” that the weeks were dragging. Now that the weather is lovely, the baby’s kicking, and I finally have a bump to show for it, I feel like the weeks are flying before my eyes!
How far along? 20 weeks!
Baby’s size? Banana – about 6.5 inches long and weighs about 10 ounces
Total weight gain/loss: 10 lbs***
Stretch marks? Not yet
Sleep: This week was better, but pee trips still bug the heck out of me.
Best moment this week: Shopping for maternity clothes with my mama (BTW, Destination Maternity is awesome!)
Miss Anything? Wine. I could have really gone for a glass of wine this weekend. Sushi would have been great too.
Movement: Yup! Kicks, flutters, and wiggles are all felt. I mainly feel them as soon as I wake up, later around 11 a.m., and evenings after my ice cream. Baby loves sugar as much as mama!
Food cravings: Ice cream. No surprise there, eh?
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, though after a bit of driving on Saturday, I felt soooo exhausted. I couldn’t believe a few hours in the car could take it out of me like that.
Gender: No idea, but I find out in a week from today. Follow me on Instagram to be the first to know!
Symptoms: Major back pain, though I don’t feel like I’m big enough to justify back pain yet, lack of energy, acne
Belly Button in or out? In but a little bigger than normal
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy! (and tired)
Looking forward to: Finding out the sex next week! I think it’s great that some couples can wait until the birth, but Kevin and I are such planners than we’re both super eager to learn anything and everything we can about our wee one.
I have a few foodie-related notes to share about the weekend tomorrow (food and I are closer than ever these days), but for now, I just want to share a couple scenes from the weekend. First up is a pic from the bridal shower I attended on Saturday. Isn’t she beautiful?!?! Rebecca was my maid of honor, and I’m happy to be returning the favor in a few weeks.
Sadly, I wasn’t able to see my dad for Father’s Day, but I did get Kevin a little something. Though we don’t know the gender, this was on sale and just too darn cute to pass up! When a Clemson fan sees something with an orange helmet, she.must.buy.it.
I think a little girl could wear it for at least one game. After all, this baby’s due during football season! Ahhh yes, and all this making my Monday Marvelous (#MIMM)!
*** Above I mentioned weight gain, and I’m not sure if I will continue to do so or not. I track it weekly myself and will continue to do so, but I don’t want to contribute to comparison traps. Thoughts? Helpful or TMI?
- What’s marvelous in your Monday?
- Anyone else getting excited for football season?
