Well, we’ve made it to 20 weeks! Halfway there! I can’t believe how fast it’s already going by. I love my bump, I have full blown pregnancy brain for sure (one night I went to climb into bed and I had my car keys in my hand…wtf?!!) and this past weekend Ryan and I finally did some research and started a gift registry. And, of course, the other week we found out the gender of the baby! It’s all really exciting!
Here are some more details from the 20 week mark:
Baby’s Size: A mango! And my other app says baby’s as long as a banana?? Crazy!
Currently Feeling: The best so far. I love the second trimester so much more than the first. The bump is out so I feel more pregnant, instead of just “fat.” I also love that the weather has turned and now I can wear layers, sweaters and comfy clothing. I love fall!!
Food Cravings: I’m loving soup at the moment with salty crackers. Oh, and grapefruit is fast becoming a favourite!
Food Disgusts: Again, nothing really! Me and all food are getting along very nicely! The only thing I can’t stand right now is the smell of wine or beer, which is funny because I LOVE wine.
Best New Developments: I think I’ve felt the little pitter patter of feet or arms inside, which is an amazing feeling. I’m obsessed with baby browsing – I’ve found so many adorable shops that I would love to spend all my money at! Help!! Seeing the baby again at the ultrasound and knowing that everything is going a-ok really set our minds at ease.
Worst New Developments: Peeing in the middle of the night constantly now. My dreams are CRAZY, which is both good and bad I guess (some are quite entertaining). I only have one pair of jeans left that fit me.
Currently Living In: My last pair of jeans 🙂 A couple of plain black dresses that I can layer easily. My Huarache sandals from Urban Outfitters – so comfy.
Excited For: More baby kicks! And I’m finally starting to work on the nursery design, which is amazingly exciting!!
And I’m also very excited to finally reveal if we are having a boy or girl…

That’s right!! We are having a sweet baby boy and we couldn’t be more thrilled! We have a lot of nieces and so many friends with girls, so a boy will be a welcome change from the norm. I cannot wait to meet him! And I think somebody else is excited to meet her baby brother…protective already!
