20 Week Bumpdate!

Finding out Gender: When we found out baby was a boy it was the funniest moment ever! Don't get me wrong it was SUCH a happy moment but it was funny. Funny because EVERYONE thought this baby was a girl. Minus 2 people. So looking over at Kev when the ultrasound tech told us BOY his face looked kind of confused and then SO SO happy! Then I started crying because oh a boy! A momma's boy! My families reactions were all…"Really?" haha. I would be lying if I said it didn't take some time to get used to the thought. But now I just love this little boy more than anything! A BOY!

Baby's growth: Baby H is now 12.5 ounces…almost ONE pound! During our recent ultrasound we got to see all his important parts and know that he is developing perfectly and growing right on track. I can't explain the relief of that ultra sound! He is getting so big and now I feel him moving all day long! That has been the funnest experience! But he is definitely a wild one and I am nervous about when he gets even bigger. I'm going to be in trouble! 

Momma's Growth: I have FINALLY put on a few pounds! 6 to be exact! Never would I have thought that putting on weight would be a happy moment haha. Also, this belly is growing away but thankfully still no stretch marks to be found!  I just keep buttering myself up with Tummy Butter and keeping my fingers crossed! Watching my body change is surprisingly such a happy thing!

Symptoms: I am finally no longer 24/7 nauseous and sick. It is such a joyous moment to enjoy some foods again! There are still moments where nothing sounds good or tastes good. For the most part though food has become not a hated thing! For some reason though I still really hate veggies…which is really sad to me! Another happy thing is that I can brush my teeth again without taking breaks to breathe so I don't vomit. Yick! 
The last two weeks I have been having braxton hicks. I had no idea they could happen this early and sheesh they are not comfortable. My whole stomach gets SO tight for about 30 seconds- 1 minute and it happens a couple times in an hour and then goes away until the next day. My doctor reassured me that because I am "so lean and tiny" it's not a surprise that I am already feeling these. Also…bonus to be called lean and tiny when your stomach is expanding away! haha! 

Sleeping: I am still SO congested always. Especially when I sleep. So breathe right nose strips are still saving my life! I also sleep every night all wrapped up in my maternity pillow. That thing is AMAZING! So amazing! My hips and back have been less sore since I started using one and that has been so helpful! 

Second Trimester Thoughts: It is SO crazy how different my second trimester has been from the first. First trimester I was almost positive I never wanted to do this again haha. Second has made me WAY more excited to experience pregnancy and everything has been a lot more enjoyable! 

I cannot wait to keep growing and to see what the next 20 weeks will bring! By the end it will bring us our sweet little baby H!! ah!
