20 Weeks

How is this my 20 week bumpdate? Where is the time going??!! I can't believe I'm halfway to meeting this little guy. Here's this weeks update.
Size of Baby: 10.5 ounces and 10 inches long, about the length of a banana.

How I'm Feeling: I feel great! Other than the few headaches I've had this week, I really can't complain much.

Cravings/Appetite: No cravings and definitely my normal appetite. I had such a crazy busy day yesterday and ended up not having time for lunch. I could have never skipped lunch just a few weeks ago or I would have gotten incredibly nauseous. I was still hungry, obviously, but not nauseous.

Clothes: Wearing all my normal stuff. One reason I didn't have time for lunch yesterday is because I was too busy at the mall. Haha! I'm enjoying shopping for new fall clothes. I can still wear the same pant size (just getting new leggings this year, no point in real pants) but I have to size up in most tops to allow for some extra bump growth.

Movement: Sweet baby is definitely moving around in there. It seems to have slowed down a bit and is more similar to Bennett than Campbell. I'm not sure any baby could possibly move as much as Campbell did!! Maybe when he gets bigger it will be different but for now it's pretty quiet with some big movements throughout the day. About once a day he gives me a huge kick and it's always very shocking and takes me by surprise!

Changes in Me: Our neighborhood clubhouse got all of their workout equipment so I've been able to use an elliptical the last few days. It's been great! So much easier on my bump but definitely a much harder workout than walking. I'm hoping I can keep it up for the rest of this pregnancy.

Baby Purchases: No purchases this week but I am headed to Little Rock in a few days and The Toggery is calling my name. It's the sweetest little childrens store (my mom used to shop there for me when I was little!) and my credit card is always a little hot after I leave there.

Favorite Moment This Week: Getting to see sweet baby three on an ultrasound! We had our anatomy scan last Thursday and this baby appears to be perfect! He measured 3 days ahead and we don't think he looks like his brothers so we're excited to see what he looks like! I'm hoping for a baby that looks like me this time. Campbell is Scott's mini and Bennett looks like my parents baby photos. I'd love to have one that looks like me. The ultrasound tech said he was being extra cooperative so she was able to finish up with our scan faster than she normally does. I'm hoping that's a sign he'll be cooperative and easy outside the womb as well!!!

Looking Forward To: Meeting my new baby niece! It's 1:00 PM now and as of now, she hasn't arrived yet but she will be any hour now! My sister-in-law has been exactly, to the day, 20 weeks ahead of me which has been fun. I can't wait to snuggle a little newborn and meet the newest addition to our family!
