20 Weeks - Bump Date!

How far along: 20 Weeks!!!!  (HALF WAY THERE!)

Baby Size: The size of a small cantaloupe or the length of a banana, 10 1/2 oz. and is 10 inches long from head to heel!

Weight gain:  +2 pounds

Maternity clothes: all maternity pants and some maternity shirts, just depends on the shirt.  I tried a pair of my regular jeans which fit perfectly fine until I sit down and they dig in my stomach really bad, so those are out until baby comes.

Stretch marks: None so far! I've been using my belly balm after my bath's at night.  Don't worry my bath's are not hot and I take one to help with the aching feet.
Sleep: Not too bad at all!  The body pillow is being used a lot now and stomach sleeping is getting pretty tough.  Sometimes I wake up on my stomach, but I know I am not there long.  Also, I am dreaming like CRAZY lately!  Such weird, weird dreams and they cause me to not have a really restful nights sleep.
Gender: It's a BOY!

Movement: Still nothing consistent, just trying to be patient....

Best moment this week: Easter at our house this year with all of our family!  We had a great time and all I could think about is how next year we will have baby Boy with us celebrating Easter and I am so excited!  :) 
Looking forward to: Friday specifically since Andy and I both took the day off work!  We really needed a day off to get us mentally back.  We are so exhausted and needed an extra day off.  I am also looking forward to the weekend and you all will find out why on Monday!

Food cravings: still loving those Cola slushies....I don't think that this craving is going to go away!  Andy and my mom know how much I love them that if they run to the gas station, they will surprise me with one!  I try to limit 2 slushies a week though which I think is really good!
  Anything making you queasy or sick: Tried ham again this weekend and it's still a no-go for this girl.  I am just not a fan of ham.
Labor Signs: None, let's keep it this way for another 18+ weeks.
What I miss: getting up from the couch or bed without being in pain.  The minute I lie down is the minute my sciatic nerve starts to hurt.  I have been doing lots of stretching and trying to keep the pain at bay.  I've also starting a prenatal yoga series on YouTube to help with the aches and pains!  I will blog more about this next week.
Symptoms: still that sciatic nerve pain, sometimes hard to breathe, exhausted from hosting Easter, some swelling in the feet from being on them all weekend long

Nursery: We should be starting on the furniture any day now!!

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Mood: Pretty good actually!  The hormones decided to take the week off, which I am sure Andy is glad about!  I can also cry at a drop of a hat....
