My Belly {20 weeks}

Cue Bon Jovi....
"Whooah, we're halfway there..."
I cannot frickin' believe that I am halfway done and am now 5 months pregnant! 
Where is the time going?!

Nugget this week...
...has taste buds!
...is gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day. 

Size of the baby?  
About 6 1/2 inches long and over 10 ounces!

Total Weight Gain/Loss?  
I'm up a total of 12 pounds, still right on track.

Maternity Clothes?  
I'm starting to have to bite the bullet and expand my maternity collection. My most recent purchase was this dress for my convention in Nashville this weekend. 


Stretch marks?  
Haven't seen one yet. 

Best Moments?  
Registering! It got me SO excited and made everything seem more real. 

Movement? 
I'm feeling baby move more and more, but it's most noticeable when I'm laying down to go to bed. This baby might just be a night owl like his/her mama. 

Food Cravings?  
Not really anything this week. I had some bad mango earlier this week which put a quick stop to that craving.

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
Still not doing veggies or meat.

What I miss?  
 I miss Advil. Tylenol isn't doing a whole lot for these aches and pains.

What I'm looking forward to?  
Finding out the gender!!! Cannot take it any longer.

Nausea/Vomiting?  
Nope. 

Symptoms? 
Holy heartburn! Tums have become my new best friend.

Labor signs?  
We are still not discussing the "L" word.

Gender? 
Still. Don't. Know.

Belly Button In or Out?  
Innie. 

Wedding rings On or Off?  
Still on baby! 

Sleep?  
I'm having a harder and harder time getting comfortable, but still sleeping pretty well.

Wisdom?
Register for it all. Babies need a lot of stuff, and whether you're having one baby shower or ten, register for everything you might need or want. You obviously won't get it all as gifts, but you will get 10% off everything you don't get {thank you completion discount}. And, the people kind enough to buy a gift will have plenty of options! Plus, a registry is a nice way to keep track of everything you need for baby so you don't forget anything important...think of it as your shopping list!

You look so adorable in that LBD! When do you find out the gender?!

agalandherdog said...

That dress is adorable! You look great!

If you're having heartburn, you should try Zantac (the generic is called Ranitidine and it's less than $5 for a bottle at Target that lasts forever). My doctor said it's perfectly safe and it helped me immensely.

You look great in that dress! What a nice choice :)

Megan said...

You look amazing in that dress! It is so cute!! I would be going crazy not know the gender, so I am sure you are too! Can't wait to find out what the nugget is!

Ashley said...

Only a few more days!!!!

That dress looks like it was MADE for you girl! Is that the one you posted the other week? If so, good choice!

Have you heard the old wives tale about having heartburn and having a baby with lots of hair? Just might be the case :-)

Becky said...

Love your dress! I'm excited to get a registry started. I need to check out the list that you posted. Did you register at multiple stores, which ones?

Have a good trip to Nashville!
