Five Months - Half Way!

Pin It!


How Far Along: 20 weeks - half way!!
Size of the Baby: The length of a banana - and about 10 oz. (although two weeks ago we were told sweet little girl was weighing in at 10 oz already -- the 90% percentile. Gulp. The technician assured us this is no indication of how big she'll be when she's born.)
Maternity Clothes: For the most part, I'm still wearing my same clothes. My amazing parents bought me a couple of shirts, dresses and leggings which I'm excited about wearing. I got my first pair of maternity jeans from H & M and oh.my.gosh. Will I ever be able to wear normal jeans again? Maternity jeans are heavenly! Why don't all jeans come with an elastic band at the top?
Stretch marks: not yet.
Weight gain: +10ish pounds total
Sleep: I can't really complain - I'm still sleeping through the night (minus getting up to pee at least once).
Best Moment of the Week: The few days the weather cooled off!! I was dying in the 90+ degree weather. I normally love summer but not so much lately. I'm fully ready for the fall chill to grace the air. Boots, scarves, football, candles, fires - bring it on!
Movement: Still pretty sporadic. Last night I felt three little pushes in a row, not just flutters, but actually pushes. It was the best feeling in the world :-) 
Food Cravings: I eat Rubio's almost daily for lunch.
Gender: GIRL!
Belly Button in or out: In
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope (still so happy about this!)
Labor Signs: No
Wedding ring on or off: On
What I miss: The jacuzzi!!!! I don't know if it's because now I know I cannot sit in one for fear of boiling my baby, or what, but I think about it almost nightly.
What I am looking forward to: I'm going baby furniture shopping with my parents this weekend!
Nursery: I am torn between two color schemes! Once I make a decision, we're going to paint (and by we're I mean Brandon, haa).
Emotions: Well, I made the mistake of watching not one, but THREE live births on Baby Center. One natural, one epidural and one c-section. As beautiful of an experience as it is to see the baby come out and the mom hold them for the first time, I just don't ever want to see a vagina being stretched and torn in that way ever again. And I certainly don't want to think about my own looking that way. I think I still might be in denial that this is the only way this little one is going to come out.

I'm so with you on the whole birth thing!! Thinking about it is enough to completely get rid of my baby fever. And flashing myself to a room of people? NO THANK YOU. I would be in denial too!
