Week 20

I LOOK: maybe pregnant? (you decide) I have some pretty kick butt fingernails--I've never had nails this long that weren't fake and I'm loving it! This has got to be one of the best physical parts of pregnancy so far. My hair is pretty awesome too (if I don't say so myself).
  • Total Weight Gain: +8 (3 lbs from two weeks ago) OOPS--according to our ultrasound today, only 12 oz of that is baby and 2 lbs is probably placenta and fluid via The baby is the size of the canalope I'm holding!
  • Maternity Clothes: 100% pants, 20% shirts for the length
I FEEL: Great! Just as I was hoping, my energy level is back up. I've been able to stay up a bit later every night (more like 9 pm) and the morning isn't killing me. This may have more to do with time change and a pretty light work week, but I'll take it. Still having some issues with a stuffy/runny nose, but nothing major. Sleeping is getting more painful for my lower back, but thankfully the pain goes away after I'm up for an hour or so.
  • Baby Movement: Can't miss the baby kicks now--once in a while the pressure on certain parts of my belly is pretty intense. Baby seems to be more active when I'm resting (in the evenings and watching TV) and sleeping when I'm talking (like all day...).

I CRAVE: last week, Dave walked into the house after work while I was eating a pickle spear, grahmn cracker, and frosting... but other than that one instance, I'm still think my cravings have been pretty mild. Wendy's hamburger kids meal has been a big one the last two weeks or so.

I THINK: I can't believe that I'm halfway done with this pregnancy! People looking at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I've 20 weeks are beginning to piss me off--so what if you can't tell, be nice and say congrats and then think whatever the heck you want... I also think that chewable vitamin are the best thing ever (not that the normal kind are hard to swallow, they just hurt my stomach and make me nauseous).

I HOPE: I hope Dave can feel the baby kick soon, that our trip to Oklahoma/Missouri for Thanksgiving goes smoothly as it relates to pregnancy (flight, rental car, sleeping, etc) and we have a good time visiting family.

DOCs SAY: It's a... healthy baby that weighs over 12 oz with all the normal parts and growth! Baby Pfeffer was also SUPER active during our ultrasound
