How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: Still even and loving it!
Maternity clothes: Purchased a wedding dress for this past weekends reception. I loved it! It was a maternity dress so it had a cute little gathering in the front to accent the baby bump. It was very comfortable and I think that it looked nice too!
Sleep: Sleeping great! I am feeling more and more movement and its right about the time that I am laying down for bed! It is such a great feeling to know that he is in there moving around!
Best moment this week: The wedding reception on May 14th was probably my best moment! Not too sure I can say the same for Rick, my mom and some of my wedding party! It was a lot of fun! We put so much work into making the barn look so chic. I have to thank my MOM, she worked tirelessly on it when I couldn’t even be there to help! I also need to thank my aunt Ronna who was my mom’s right hand women putting up the lights and coordinating the power cords so everything would light up! Thanks so much! Of course, I need to thank my sisters and bridesmaids for helping out! Rick’s mom and dad, Patti and Tom, who bought all the soda for us so we didn’t have to worry about that when we flew in on Thursday. I have to thank Rocky too because it was his idea to have the extra tent outside of the barn for the smokers. I think it turned out nicely! Goodness, I could go on and on with thanks….the Skemp’s that help set up and take down! I have to thank Steph, my sister-in-law for doing the majority of the flowers! I loved how they turned out! I am sure I am missing someone but lastly I would like to thank Rick, my lovely HUSBAND, he did a fabulous job on the music for the reception! I know this because my feet hurt after the reception for days:)
Miss anything? Probably alcohol, it was my first sober reception…it was interesting to say the least! I think Rick drank enough for all three of us, haha!
Movement: He is getting so big! I seems that I can feel him move/kick more and more each day! First picture is his leg from his knee down to his foot. Second is a profile of his face.
Food cravings: Still loving olives!
Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
Gender: It’s a BOY! Trying to determine his name. I think we have a first name picked out but just deciding on the perfect middle name.
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: No symptoms, I feel so lucky that this pregnancy is going so smoothly!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and tired! It was a long weekend of getting up early and staying up too late. We worked on wedding stuff literally every day for hours! It was a blast but I am glad that it is over…it was so nice to see everyone who made it out! Rick and I felt so loved and had a blast! Now we can focus on the baby and getting ready for him!
Looking forward to: We purchased a crib and matching dresser for the baby’s room. We had help getting it home yesterday and can’t wait to get it out of the box and into his room. I am so excited for my baby shower and slowly see everything come together. His room will be so great when I am done with it. Perfect for a little baby boy to grow into.
Days to go: 136 HALF WAY!!! whoop whoop:)
Baby development: Baby is the size of a banana. He is about 10 inches from head to heel. He is swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He is also producing meconium, a black sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and I will see it in his first soiled diaper.
I have reached my halfway point in this pregnancy and I have to say that it has been a breeze! I feel so good…sometimes I have to remind myself that I am even pregnant! haha, yeah I am that girl!
