20 weeks // bump update

This post is super far behind. {Read: almost 8 weeks behind.} So sorry! It's been completed and just hanging out it in my drafts for the past 2 months and I just never got around to posting it. Likely because I never took a great progress picture for that week. Or for very many weeks since then. Life has just been so darn busy. So, without further adieu, here is my 20 week bump update:

This is the best picture I have from 20 weeks - a bathroom selfie at work that I had sent to my husband.
Just go with it.

How Far Along? 20 weeks! Halfway there already. Man, time flies!

Size of Baby: a banana. At our anatomy scan, the tech mentioned that baby is weighing about 10 ounces (so, right on track!).

Weight Gain: about 6 lbs now... which I thought would have been more considering we went on our honeymoon and all we did was eat and eat and eat and relax on the beach, haha.

Maternity Clothes: yes, but only a few pieces. I am in SERIOUS need of some maternity jeans. The belly band just isn't gonna cut it for much longer. Even my scrub pants for work are getting too tight. Woof.

Stretch marks: none so far, thank goodness. I constantly apply lotion to prevent those babies from showing up.

Symptoms: gas. so much gas.  The kind that builds up and becomes painful. One night on our honeymoon I woke up doubled over in pain and crying because I had so much gas pain. So, I've since purchased some Gas-X but it's really just a constant everyday battle.

Cravings:  No ma'am. I don't know where the consistent I-want-this-food-item-now cravings are at for this pregnancy, but I wish I at least had one to speak of.

Gender: BOY! Baby Eagle is most definitely a "male". We all anticipated that he would be, but it was still so awesome for that to be confirmed for us. 

Mood: tired and happy. Mostly tired now that it gets dark out so super early, though. 

Nursery: Nothing to speak of... yet. At least now that we know what Baby Eagle's gender is, it should make planning the nursery go a little quicker! ...maybe ;)

Movement: yes! yes! yes! Even Nick has felt him movin' around in there. He started kicking me a little bit before the wedding and throughout our honeymoon and the last few weeks, the movement has gotten stronger and stronger. I am absolutely loving it and wish I could feel him having his dance parties all day long.

Sleep: sleep is excellent. I wake up maybe once around 5am when Nick gets up for work, but I normally fall asleep again pretty quickly. Just yesterday we put the heated blanket and flannel sheets on our bed since the temps have been dropping and I couldn't be happier.

What I Miss:  having clothes that fit. Though, I am more than willing to accommodate the growing baby bump.

Belly Button in or out? 
 Halfway between the two.

Wedding rings on or off? On! Bands and all (finally!).

Anything making you queasy or sick:  no, thank goodness.

Best Moment This Week: feeling baby kick and move. It seriously is the best feeling in the world. 

Labor Signs:  no, no. 

Looking Forward To: date night on Saturday with my love to see Gone Girl. Ever since we got back from our honeymoon, we have been trying to plan a night out to go see it and we've finally managed to make it happen. Also: getting this attic done! I will be so excited to decorate the new space, get our closet situation organized, and then move on to baby's room!
