20 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 20 weeks

Total Weight Gain: minus 4 lbs

Baby Size: Cantaloupe (Average size: 6.5 in, 10.6 oz.)
Maternity Clothes: I've been wearing a lot of elastic waist skirts and enjoying summertime!

Gender: We know!! We'll tell you soon :) We are very happy :)

Movement: I felt a lot of little kicks this week!  My dr said my placenta is attached in the front, and that is probably why I haven't been feeling much of the softer "bubble" kicks.  But baby is kicking good this week :) Neil even got to feel a kick!  We finally got the timing right.  He said "ooo - the baby kicked me!"

Sleep: I sleep good - especially when the humidifyer is going :)  I've started having to get up at night to go to the bathroom - but really I'm shocked I've made it this long being able to sleep through the night!

What I miss: I think I'm going to take this section out (unless I actually miss something).  I am just so happy to be healthy and feeling good - I am really enjoying being pregnant!!
Cravings: Neil took me to Pickleman's after our Dr's appointment and I got the best BLT with cheese!  Sooo good! I have been craving sandwiches all summer!

Other crazy symptoms: I've started noticing that its harder to bend over!

Best Moments this week: Getting to see our sweet baby's face and finding out that they are growing strong and so healthy!  The baby measured about 11oz and is perfect in every way :)  Neil and I have been oogling over the ultrasound photos.  Its incredible that such a wonderful little person is growing inside me!

Oh Yeah: I did take some belly pictures last week, but they are on Neil's computer and I am in OKC right now and he is in NM so I can't put it on here yet.  I'll update it soon!

That's awesome that Neil got to feel the baby, how special! I can't wait to see you again & give you a big ole hug, I'm so glad you're feeling so well!

P.S. Colt is really enamored by "George's Friends" right now. He keeps saying, 'I see fish! Yewow! (yellow) : )
