20 Weeks: Half way done!!Wednesday, August 05, 2015
How far along? 20 Weeks
Baby is now the size of: a Banana!!
Gender: STILL A BOY! :)
Movement: Baby boy has definitely become quite the dancer! I usually notice movements first thing in the morning, then again in the middle of the afternoon, and again when John and I are watching TV and relaxing after dinner, then lately Ive been feeling him just before bed and in the middle of the night. I always worry when I don't feel him for a while, and when I do feel movements again, im like *sigh of relief* "Oh there you are!!"
My skin: Has been itching like crazy and I'm getting weird bumps/rash like stuff around my neck and its gross looking! The more I scratch, the more it gets dark. So now have this dark patches around my neck area! So gross! I have been so conscious about my neck area lately! ;( If I could wear turtle necks in this heat, I would!
I miss: Being able to do things without constantly being observed! I was trying to help John paint the closet and after about 5 minutes he told me to stop. I wasn't even struggling and I had a mask on!
My emotions are: Have been all over the place! I cried one time because John didn't want to go out and I have been stuck indoors all day, and then he said something to try and be funny, but instead I started crying! Then half an hour later, I was laughing. Swear! Sometimes I think Im crazy! John has been patient with my moody and crazy emotions though!
This week's memories are: Dada finishing the mountain mural that he started for the nursery and how proud he is of it! Also getting to see baby boy during out 20 week anatomy scan earlier and doing our hospital tour!!
Excited For: The baby shower! Its months away, but I am excited! My sister or family isnt here to host it, but they said they were gonna do one in San Diego! My girlfriends are helping me plan it here! :)
Embracing the bump before I get super big & because I know i'll miss it when he's out! A little side story: After my laparoscopy in March, I was self-conscious about that little scar I have on my tummy. It used to be just above my pelvic area, now it has travelled with my growing belly! I had three cuts, one near my pubic bone, on my left abdomen area (which is the scar you see), and on my belly button. These scars are also a great reminder of what I had to go through in order to have a better chance of conceiving. Read the story here.
I cant figure out why the quality of our images lately have been getting so pixelated, but when I click to enlarge, its clear. Hrmm. Its too much for my pregnant brain to handle at the moment. I'll figure it out another day.
