baby #2: 20 weeks

(written February 12th)_MG_1343

Baby’s size: Crown-to-rump length is between 5.66 and 6.5 inches, and at our ultrasound baby weighed 10 ounces!
Maternity clothes?: None yet! Somehow my pants are still buttoning…
Gender: We know!!! I will definitely be sharing soon, but Michael’s parents were supposed to come to town this weekend, and I was planning to surprise our family in person first. Sadly, the snow kept them from coming, but I have a pretty creative back-up scheme.
Sleep: Great quality, low quantity. I also seem to remember my dreams really well.
Movement: Still lots! I actually felt it on the outside of my belly with my hand for the first time ever today. Baby also had the hiccups during the ultrasound!
Cravings: Milk and chocolate-chip cookies.
What I miss: Naps. Kaya has been resisting naps (not because she doesn’t need it, because she is obviously very cranky and overtired), so that means no break for me. Oh well… Maybe she’s just preparing me for when I have two kids and they don’t sleep at the same time.
Anything making you queasy or sick?: I still have a few nauseous moments here and there, but nothing big. We even ate chicken paninis this week!
Belly Button in or out?: In for sure.
Exercising?: Ran 20 miles total this week.
Mood: Relieved to finally know baby’s gender and so excited to kiss those little cheeks in July!
Best moment this week: Seeing our sweet baby’s face at our ultrasound!
Looking forward to: Having a little birthday celebration 🙂
