How far along: 20 Weeks
Maternity clothes: I really like having a pair of black pants and a pair of maternity jeans to fall back on. Otherwise I have been buying workout clothes a size bigger and pretty much wear those all the time. Maxi skirts are awesome too.
Stretch marks: No. I have a feeling I am getting them this time though.
Sleep: Not too good this week. I don’t blame him though. Just as I write this I am up at the crack of dawn because I can’t shut off my brain! Chicago is looming…
Best moment this week: Feeling him flutter. I am definitely starting to feel him a little bit more. Also, getting super cute clothes from my mom and sister. It’s fun to see boy clothes around the house.
Miss anything: Running (I feel so large and awkward when I run that I stopped running…I am kind of regretting it), mountain biking (it was such a beautiful day out yesterday), and feeling self-confident (for some reason being bigger this time has made me super self-conscious).
Morning sickness: None. I have been very lucky.
Movement: Just little fluttering…
Food cravings: Still eating my apple a day. I’ve had to fight my sweet tooth with this one…chocolate is my weakness this time around. Also, I get SO HUNGRY in the evening when I am trying not to eat. I feel like I am starving and I know I am not!
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of most vegetables and pasta. Chicken has always smelled funky to me, especially leftover chicken. Heartburn is creeping up on me too at the weirdest times!
Have you started to show yet: Yes. Too much.
Gender prediction: Boy.
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: Flat and weird.
Wedding rings on or off: Off, but like I said, I hardly wear jewelry in general, except when I am going out on the town.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody. I have been so easily offended all week. I’ve had a few good cries where I am so angry at people for the stupidest reasons. I forgot how everything seems so much more dramatic than it should (it doesn’t help when people trigger it). I remember last time I would get so mad when people would make comments on how big I am and when I look back I see how dumb I was…hello, you are pregnant. This time I am really touchy about people saying things about me in general. So crazy.
Looking forward to: Going to the doctor this week for one last visit before I head off to Chicago! I look forward to Mike getting this treatment done!
