Half Way There

How Far Along: 20 weeks and 2 days (5 MONTHS?!) How could this have happened so fast? I feel like the 20 week mark is a BIG milestone for me- starting to slowly feel more comfortable with the whole being pregnant thing.

Baby: Baby is as big as a cantaloupe. Can’t believe I am fitting a cantaloupe child in my belly right now. He is about 7 inches in length and weighs ALMOST a pound!

Baby is creating meconium (ewe) and gaining weight now to get ready for birth! Declan also has sleep patterns now, which I am pretty sure I am aware of already. He sleeps during the day and wakes up at night BIG time! Lucky me for after he is born with this habit J I am guessing there is no way to adjust this now either is there?

Movement: Oh my gosh- I swear he is doing a round off back handspring in there as of late! I LOVE IT!!!!!

I am starting to wonder if that show "I didn't know I was Pregnant" was a big fat LIE! Seriously in the world can you NOT see your belly growing because something the size of a Cantalaop is moving around inside of you?? Used to love that I don't believe...haha!

Sleep: I take a unisom at night but still get up too pee a few times and have a hard time falling back asleep. Usually because I will realize Declan is moving and get to excited to sleep.:) I end up sleeping on my back often times because my child I swear is pushing on all my organs when I am on my side! Definitely feeling cramps and ligament pains now too (Do yours feel like menstrual cramps????) Mine do and it kinda freaks me out!

Symptoms: Still Dry heaving but not throwing up- I'll take it! I think I may have even gained a pound! :) I see the doctor on Monday to find out how that's going. I am feeling SO much better these days- EXHAUSTED with my new work schedule (4 11 hour days in a row is rough on a pregnant lady) but overall feeling REALLY excited to meet my son! I am obsessed with my nephew already so I can see how much fun boys are!

Purchases: I bought my bedding this week which was HUGE for me! I found the EXACT custom bedding I wanted with a matching mobile- all to be shipped to me THIS week! EEK! I was honestly terrified of actually purchasing something like that for some reason- didn't want to jinx myself maybe?? My sister gave me lots of cute boy clothes that Luke already grew out of!

I took this at work today - I don't think this shirt is the best for a belly pic- but none the less here it is. :) I think I may be pushing out a tad on this- or maybe just in denial about my growing belly.

Thought I would a picture of my baby right now- She is already jealous when I want to pet my belly rather than her. I am stressing a tad about how she will react to a baby- but we will see :)

AWFUL pic of me- Jonny convinced me into going to a movie with no makeup on- but he HAD to take a picture since I just HAD to get both a pickle AND Ice cream before sneaking it into the movies. Don't worry folks I don't eat them together :)
My dinner last night...mmmmm I really LOVE grapefruit right now- but I ALWAYS love grapefruit- it's just a bit intensified now :)

Husband decided to surprise me and take me on a BABYMOON to San Juan Puerto Rico NEXT MONTH! Hopefully I won't be too huge at 6 months along?! We have been there before and LOVED it! Beautiful Caribbean waters and rain forest greenery??! YES please!

P.s I am reading so many blogs of amazing ladies waiting for their BFP! SOOO excited for each of you and am praying for all of you!!!! :)

  5. Love the cute little baby bump!! I having the round ligament pains and they feel crampy sometimes or really sharp. I can't wait to feel my little one moving, I am so excited, and I know that must bring you so much peace of mind. I have been having some crazy cravings too, so I can totally relate to the funny combinations that you are eating : ) So happy that you are halfway there!
