20 weeks

I hate how these pictures always have a shadow...I'm going to have to work on that, no one wants to look larger in a pregnant picture :)

How far along: 20 weeks 5 days
Total weight gain/loss: 13 lbs.
Maternity clothes: pants yes and shirts sometimes
Sleep: only side sleeping with a pillow b/w my legs
Best moment this week: Seeing a healthy baby on the ultrasound
Movement: Yes, especially at morning and night or when Sawyer is sitting on my lap
Food cravings: nothing to speak of lately
What I am missing: ?? I'm feeling good and pretty much back to normal
What I am looking forward to: Changing up the nursery to fit 2 kiddos
Milestones: Finding out the gender

My doctor's appointment went well. First we had the ultrasound. And the baby seems to be perfectly healthy and growing right on schedule. Our ultrasound tech was not nearly as good as the tech we had in Kansas, but he did a thorough job of measuring the baby and checking all the organs. However, he had a difficult time getting any good shots of the baby as it wanted to hide in my pelvis. We got a foot shot and a face shot, but no profile :( We got spoiled in Kansas because we had a 4-D ultrasound every time, which really helps you see the baby. Unfortunately, our pictures this time resemble a skeleton more than a guessing who the baby looks like this time, I guess we'll just be surprised :)

The great news is everything looks healthy with the baby. I'm feeling good, my weight was once again in check, and my blood pressure was also good. The baby's heartbeat was strong and rhythmic at 150 bpm.

And we found out the gender...more to come in the next post.


  1. I have so totally been stalking your blog, waiting to see when you're going to share the gender of #2 :) So excited!!!!

  2. You're so mean to leave us hanging! ;-) So glad that you are doing well and feeling good.

  3. BTW, you look amazing for 20 weeks with #2, I don't believe it!

  4. Sorry to leave everyone hanging...I promise it's next
