20 week pregnancy update

How far along? 20 weeks + 4 days, but he is measuring at 20 weeks + 6 days!

Baby’s size? The size of a banana! About 10 inches long.

Total weight gain/loss: About 10 pounds. 

Maternity clothes? Well, I ripped a pair of jeans yesterday. Think it's time I stop trying to fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans! 

Sleep: Normal sleep, but I now have to go to the bathroom all the time, so I'm waking up about six hours into the nigh. My bladder is not as strong as it used to be.

Best moment since the last update: We got to see our baby boy at our anatomy ultrasound appointment and he is growing just as healthy as could be! Such an amazing relief.

Movement: I felt my first flutters the night before our 20 week appointment, which is actually when I was 20 weeks and 1 day. I was laying in bed and had just finished rubbing body butter all on my belly. Brandon put his hand on my tummy and sure enough, I felt a little tickle under the skin. It's nothing Brandon could have possibly felt, but it's so neat that it happened for the first time right when he put his hand there. This sweet boy loves his daddy.

Food cravings: Nothing really!

Feeling? Like I could conquer the world. And thank goodness. I have had a tough and busy couple of weeks with my mom being in the hospital and selling our house/buying a new one. I don't know what I would have possibly done if I weren't feeling well.

Baby Goodies Acquired: 
I went to the Pixie Lilly studio and met the lovely Leda, who is the designer of this tiny couture line. I  cannot tell you how awesome it is in person. The craftsmanship just got me. All the crochet work is hand-done by local artisans. 

I've been on a swaddle testing spree and these are by far the softest, most luxurious feeling swaddles I've felt. Plus, look at that adorable print! I love that one little black sheep. There are tons of different designs on their website.

Isn't this precious? I feel like he will mostly be in monogrammed or plain white bibs, but I couldn't resist this one. Save 40% off with code BUNDLE.
