I skipped last week’s bump update, I had been already to write it out and then of course life got in the way and we ended up being super busy and work was a nightmare which meant that rather than writing out a post at 11:45pm Wednesday night I decided to call it a night and go to sleep.
Not much has changed too much in the last couple of weeks, we are still chugging along happily but are now at half way where has the time gone?
How far along: 20 weeks 4 days
Baby H: weighs 300g and is 25.6 cm from crown to heel, about the size of an Banana.
Gender: Baby H is a BOY, you can read about the reveal HERE.
Total weight gain: + 3.2kg total which is 1.2g gained since week 18, I have had a bit of jump in weight the past 2 weeks but I imagine that is just normal as I haven’t really changed my diet and have been eating more home cooked meals if anything.
Sleep: I was tossing and turning and then I discovered Calm Balm in the October Vegan Beauty Box, I put a little on my chest, back, wrists and soles of my feet before bed and it seems to completely calm me and I end up sleeping throughout the night.
Symptoms: Still horrible face pimples, itchy skin and last night I noticed I had a bunch of fluid by my ankles!
Cravings / Aversions: I have been eating ice blocks like no ones business this past weekend, we went through a box of them in 3 days!
Maternity Clothes: I have started rolling my pants down under my belly as they are now to tight to wear over my bump, still wearing loose fitting work shirts.
Exercise: My prenatal aqua aerobic and yoga class is closed for this week and next week so I am a bit sad about that but I will be glad when it is back on. I haven’t done that much else as I have had a pretty bad case of the flu.
Mood: Positive, motivated, excited and starting to nest.
Wedding rings: on
Belly Button in or out: Its currently an innie.
Movement: I woken up this morning at 4am with a bunch of nice and painful punches throughout the right side of my stomach. That seems to be his favourite spot to kick and stretch.
What I miss: Nothing really this week.
Preaclampisa: My blood pressure was high this past Monday at the doctors and now that I had fluid on my legs last night I am a little worried, I will speak to the doctors next week about it.
Best moment of the week: Painting the nursery this past Sunday and seeing our little bub at our 20 week scan.
What I am looking forward to: Having the house and bed to myself, Dylan has a boys trip away so it will just be me this weekend and I am looking forward to relaxing all weekend long.
There you have my 20 week bump update, I cannot believe that this pregnancy is going so fast, I just want to savor every moment of it before it is over. The nursery is starting to look like a real nursery so I will be posting about that once we finish up I have picked a certain theme I wonder if you will be able to guess it.
How was your 20th week pregnant?
Did you experience fluid in your legs this early?
