Week 20 Bump Update



Baby’s Size: According to Pregnant Chicken she is the size of the world’s largest gummy bear and weighs about 3/4 of a lb.

Baby’s Progress: Baby girl is kicking and moving around quite a bit, and I can tell they are getting stronger, and in development news… she now has eyebrows (which if my life is any indication she will spend most of her adult years trying to tame.

Weight Gain: I’m still about the same… maybe gained a half pound, depending on what time of day you weigh. I keep thinking that here in a few weeks I’ll read this and laugh at how little I’ve gained so far, but… not yet.

Sleep: I can definitely tell it is getting harder to change positions in the middle of the night, so I can’t imagine in a month or two when I am so much bigger being able to adjust very easily!

Milestones: Honestly it was a quiet week, so no major milestones for Baby Girl or us, we are just starting to decide on a name and making actual concrete plans… so every day this whole thing gets a lot more real!

Favorite clothing item of the week: definitely a non-pregnancy sweatshirt thing I bought at Gap over Christmas.  It has plenty of room in it, is warm and cozy and I’ve been living in it after work!

Symptoms: I’ve had a few bouts of returning nausea, but other than that I feel great. And I am taking full advantage! We had beautiful weather so the husband and I went for a long walk at the nature preserve on Valentine’s day, and I can tell how much more winded I get faster, but other than that I feel pretty much like normal old me. I mean… that is until I look down and see a bump.

Workout: I did a morning at Camp Gladiator, but wussed out the next workout when it was 36 degrees outside.  I woke up at 5 am, brushed my teeth, put on workout clothes, and started to go when Reese said: do you know it is 36 degrees outside? I said Nope… and turned around and went back to bed.  Best. Decision. Ever.

I know a lot of women that don’t feel great for most of their pregnancy, but I feel amazingly fortunate to feel as good as I do right now. I am going to try to enjoy it as long as I can!! I have two weeks of travel coming up and so I am grateful that this is a time where I feel pretty good!!
