20 Weeks

I couldn’t resist posting a photo first thing this morning, but I will do a little more of an update now. 

Honestly, there’s not much to say. Hubs and I are taking a long weekend to Martha’s Vineyard… our first “vacation” in 3 years since our honeymoon. I guess you could call it a ‘babymoon…’ or you could just say he finally felt guilty enough to take a weekend off of work. The weather is going to be iffy, but a weekend away is a weekend away. You won’t hear me complaining!

All in all, I am feeling pretty good. Every three days or so, I am noticing moderately intense cramps on my left side for a few hours in the early evening. They don’t seem to be brought on by anything in particular. If possible, I am getting in to bed when this happens. My anatomy scan is scheduled for Tuesday, so I will mention it to the doctor. Hopefully baby will check out fine and it’s all part of the growing pains process.

Speaking of anatomy scans… I FINALLY GET TO SEE MY DOODLEBUG AGAIN!!! I can not wait. Mom and sister will be joining me and I am so excited to share the experience with them. Of course I am a little anxious because I want everything to look healthy and perfect, but mostly I am just soooo looking forward to catching a glimpse… or 10… of Baby A!!! We will not be finding out the gender. I’m looking forward to hearing it announced in the delivery room. 

That’s really about it. I’m still sleeping pretty well. Have a little shortness of breath and the tiniest amount of indigestion here and there (at least I think that’s what it is?!?). Still feeling little flutters and anticipating the first bigger movements. 

Can’t believe we are at 20 weeks!

 “Whoooaaaa we’re halfway there! Whooooaaaa! Livin’ on a prayer!”

20 weeks – 7 AM

Maternity pants with pre-prego shirt. The look of the bump so largely depends on what I am wearing at this point. Yesterday I didn’t appear to have any bump at all. Waiting for the infamous “pop,” but fearing I may just be one of those people who looks all around puffy and chubby the whole time! Maybe I should stop eating this coffee roll from Dunkin’ 

<le sigh…>

(But really as long as baby is healthy, I don’t care what I look like on the outside!!!)
