Halfway there....what's between it's legs?

How far along: 20 weeks --- halfway there!  I never ever ever thought we would be here

Size of baby: banana?  weird

Physical symptoms: Constipation, huge boobs (finally had to bite the bullet and buy a new bra).  Thank you to those that gave me suggestions for my itchiness...I am using cocoa butter and it feels great

Weight gain/loss: 12-ish pounds

Maternity clothes: Yup, love them.

Stretch marks: Boobs only

Sleep: Better as long as I am able to find a good position.

Best moment since last week:  Our 20-week scan today.  Baby is measuring about 4-5 days ahead, so we are right on track.  It was crazy to see the whole skeleton, the brain, everything.  Pure heaven.

Movement: A couple flutters here and there that may have been gas...the little peanut was moving tons in the scan, and I couldn't even feel it.

Cravings/Aversions:  Same.

Gender: Boy!!!!  I was sure it was a girl, so I was shocked when the tech told me.  And I had her check twice just to make sure.  No mistaking it...he is ALL boy haha

Labor signs: nope

Belly button:  stretched-out innie

What I miss:  Booze, sleeping on my back, walking up stairs without losing my breath

What I am looking forward to: All I want to do right now is buy little boy things....but I know I should wait for my shower.

3+ weeks of updates...

Wow, I just realized I haven't updated since the 16-week mark.  My bad!  I've been so busy at work, and honestly, just haven't had much to report on the baby front.  Things are still moving along.  Update below if there's even anyone left reading this boring blog haha!
How far along: 19w3d

Size of baby: mango

Physical symptoms: Constipation, huge boobs, itchy stomach (and I haven't found anything I like to rub on my belly since I had an allergic reaction to Bio-Oil), heartburn.

Weight gain/loss: As of this morning, I am up 12 lbs according to my scale...but at my doctor's appointment this week, they said 8 lbs, so let's go with that :)

Maternity clothes: Oh yeah.  Finally broke down and bought some shorts because it is so damn hot here in Central California.  My belly has rounded out quite a bit so now I fit better in all the cute clothes at the maternity store.

Stretch marks: Boobs only, thank goodness!

Sleep: Better.  I'm waking up more during the night to pee, and having a hard time getting comfortable to fall asleep, but I think I am sleeping a bit better when I do.

Best moment since last week:  Had an OB appointment this past week.  I was really nervous about my appointment (like always), but I heard the heartbeat, so I feel a little better now.  Also, the doctor said he could tell on the doppler when the baby kicked!

Movement: I actually felt the first flutter after my last post, right at about 16.5 weeks, but hadn't felt anything definite since, which is why I was nervous for my appointment last week.  But I think I felt something today :)

Cravings/Aversions:  Same.  Chicken weirds me out.  Obsessed with spicy/salty/sour/sweet anything

Gender: We have our 20-week ultrasound this week!  Hopefully the little nugget cooperates and we can find out finally!

Labor signs: nope

Belly button:  Innie...but slowly working it's way out I think.

What I miss:  Booze

What I am looking forward to:  gender scan!!
