20 Week Update

How Far Along: 20 Weeks (Last Friday)

Size of baby: Baby is the size of a banana (7 inches long, 11 oz)

The Bad: Still a little heartburn... but other than that, I can't complain!

Maternity Clothes: I am in maternity pants and tops all the time now... don't really have anything non-maternity that fits anymore. I am also loving the maternity dresses - very comfortable!

Gender: BOY!!!  We were able to find out super early at our 15 week appointment with a quick sonogram... we got to confirm it last week at our official 20 week sonogram.  We officially announced it on facebook as well - we are so excited to meet our little man!

Sleep: Still getting up at least once to use the bathroom each night... trying to sleep on my side as much as possible now and it is getting difficult/slightly uncomfortable.  

Movement: About  two weeks ago (around 18.5 weeks) I started feeling some definite movement.  2 days before I hit 20 weeks... Josh felt him kick as well!  I was so excited that he got to feel him kick too.  Our little boy is pretty active at night... especially right around 10:30 or so when I am trying to go to sleep :).  

What I miss: Sleeping on my back...

Cravings: Nothing too crazy yet... I was craving peanut butter a lot in the beginning.  I later discovered that peanuts were the source of a lot of my heartburn... I had to give it up for the time being.  

Symptoms: Heartburn, frequent trips to the bathroom, belly showing :)

Best Moment this week: Seeing the detailed sonogram at our 20 week appointment - it was so exciting to see all of the details of our little guy.  What a miracle.  

This week we also moved into our new house in Huntsville!  It is excited to get settled and unpacked as we prepare for our expanding family.  We are so thankful for the many blessings that God has given us including a new home.  

I am hitting the road for work this week... I am hoping to update everyone when I return with pictures of our new house!!  Stay tuned...
