Baby Hunt 2.0 Week 20

How far along: 20 weeks 6 days

Baby H2.0: Weighs 289 g and is 16.5 cm from crown to rump, about the size of a Banana. Must be why I am craving potassium haha.

Gender: Baby Hunt 2.0 is a GIRL!!!

Weight gain:+ 3 kg since we found out, haven’t gained anymore in the past week but my weight is pretty up and down at the moment.

Sleep: Sleep is actually pretty good at the moment most nights I am going to be pretty early and waking up right before I have to go to work, I think I got over 12 hours the other night!

Symptoms: The bad groin pains are back again this week, I am also struggling a bit with exhaustion and morning sickness! I thought trimester 2 was supposed to be all sunshine and rainbows.

Cravings / Aversions: I am actually struggling a bit with eating at the moment, I am feeling a bit queasy but I have a bunch of frozen apple juice cups and they are just perfect in the evenings.

Maternity Clothes: still holding out to buy anything, I am going to see how far I can stretch it but I think we are on the cusp of purchasing some items.

Exercise: The idea of exercise is laughable at the moment, I can barely walk from my car to my office without my hips feeling like they are on fire and my hips feel like they could slip out of place.

Mood: Trying to soak as much happiness up as I can but I have become a bit snappy this week.

Wedding rings: Off –  side note my engagement ring broke and I still haven’t fixed it which is why I am not wearing any rings at the moment

Belly Button in or out: It’s currently an innie, was the hold last pregnancy I am assuming it will stay the same.

Movement: She is officially moving! I feel her more in the evenings but she does let me know she is there throughout the day.

What I miss: Being able to sit without pain!

Preeclampsia: No signs.

Best moment of the week: Feeling all the movement.

Worst moment of the week: I was told some extremely upsetting news today, a lady I know that is also currently pregnant with a girl and due to give birth in January had a miscarriage early this week. I feel absolutely devastated for her and I just cannot fathom what happened. I saw her husband today and avoided him, I feel guilty that I am here celebrating the news that I am having a daughter when they are mourning the loss of theirs. 

What I am looking forward to: The city Christmas tree lighting on Saturday, we are going to a Christmas event in the heart of the city where they light a giant tree and have a bunch of Christmas related children’s activities and food trucks.

There you have the week 20 recap, I cannot believe that I am already at the halfway point and am having a little girl! I am beyond excited to meet this little princess.

How do you acknowledge someone’s miscarriage? I feel its best if I stay away and don’t say anything at all.
