Halfway....... 20 Weeks Pregnant

I'm halfway through my pregnancy and if I follow the rules of my previous pregnancies than I probably only have about 15 weeks left before this baby wants to move out. lol I'm hoping to carry this baby at least to 37 weeks if not longer, so at 35 weeks even if they don't put me on bed rest, i'm putting myself on.

Here is my pregnancy update for week 20

How far along? 20 weeks

Total weight gain? I'm going to make a guess that i'm up 10-11 lbs by now, i'll change it on Friday once I know for sure. I'd be really shocked if I am any less than that. lol

Maternity Clothes? Yes and No, I hate buying mat. clothes, not because they aren't cute but because this is our last baby, so they will get no further use from me. I buy something if I need it but I don't have a full wardrobe, I'm making the clothes I have work with the help of rubber bands and a bella band.

Stretch Marks? Does it count if you cant see them in photographs? I don't have any new ones.

Best Moment this week? I got to see my belly do a lil quick dance.....there is really someone in there.

Food Cravings? I've given up my love for Cream of Wheat and I now eat Oatmeal on a daily basis. I LOVE it and have gone through 2 of these big tubs (which makes about 30 bowls) in 1 month.

I also have a serious LOVE for cereal which I've always had, even pre pregnancy although I was controlled enough to not need 6-8 boxes a month. Yea I can go through about 2 boxes of cereal a week. V$ is tired of bringing milk home every 3 days. :) My kitchen almost looks like a grocery cereal isle.

Food Aversions? I can eat meat now, it's not my fav still but I can eat some meats, but I hate chicken, in almost all forms. It looks gross, it smells gross and I want nothing to do with it. I also still hate broccoli.

20 week glamour shot - I don't mean to be vain but i'm such a cute preggo. :)

Movement? Yep I feel the lil jelly bean all the time and this baby loves when I eat because that's how I can get him or her to move.

Gender? Unknown still, some ppl that voted boy on my gender game are changing their votes to girl, reason being....."just a hunch" and my cousin called told V$ she had a dream that I was having a girl because she was going her hair....I at least hope she had a decent grade of hair. lol If you haven't read Old Wives Tales and Gender Prediction Fun you should.

Labor Signs? None

Weekly Wisdom? Remember that hoping for a specific gender is fine, but God gives each family what is perfect for them.


Congratulations-you're almost halfway there! Celebrate by talking to your baby; she can hear you now. Weighing in at about 9 ounces (.25 kg) and measuring over 6 inches (15 cm) long, your baby is aware of all kinds of sounds, from the beating of your heart and growling of your tummy, to songs on the radio and the buzzing of your alarm clock. If you feel a "bounce" in your tummy when you hear a loud noise, it's because your baby hears it, too! This is the start of your baby's active phase. You'll feel every twist, turn, and wiggle. You may also hear your baby's heartbeat through a stethoscope, and it's probably faster than you expect--120 to 160 beats per minute.


  1. You are glowing!!! I wish I looked that good when I was pregnant both times.

  2. You are a cute prego!! :) I can eat turkey and chicken better if it is dark meat b/c I love dark meat but I can hardly eat very much of the white meat.

  3. I just love your glow. I'm so happy for you and always praying.


  4. This design is steller! You certainly know how to keep a
    reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos,

  10. аs soon as you think about it, most of the items that are in the
    aisles consist of foods iո a bag or box that are unhealthy for you.
    Healthy aging and wellness means knowing how to balance and care for the three main aѕpects of life: mind, body
    and spirit. Goіng tο thе gym with a friend may be more encouraging.
