20 Weeks with Baby #2

We're halfway there! I hope :) I have to be totally honest, the first half of this pregnancy has been pretty amazing. I had a really good pregnancy with G, and I honestly feel like this one is even better - aside from the horrendous morning sickness from weeks 5-10 that is. Now I'm feeling good almost 24/7, and I actually forget I'm pregnant until I feel the baby move. Or see myself in a mirror. No denying that belly! But so far things have been great and I'm feeling super lucky and blessed to be enjoying it so much...I mean, this must be a sign that I should just keep having babies, right? Doubtful the husband would agree. Anyway, on to the update! 

Due Date
October 17, 2015

This Week Baby A...
Weighs about 10 1/2 ounces and is the length of a banana. He also might have an established sleep pattern...and I'm pretty sure he does. He is active every single night around 10:30, and then also usually around noon/Grayson's naptime. I guess those are typically the times that I stop moving during the day, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Honestly, nothing big. Sometimes I'll have a random ache or pain, some nights I may have a tiny bit of indigestion, but for the most part I don't feel pregnant like at all. Aside from the belly that keeps growing, which is pretty undeniable. And being overly tired at all times. But I'm pretty sure my crazy toddler is a factor in that as well. 

Weight Gain
8 pounds as of my 20 week checkup. Thankfully I'm gaining a teeny tiny bit slower than last time, so maybe I won't gain quite as much? Maybe? Doubtful, but a girl can hope. 

Another sweet mama's boy :) 

Food Cravings/Aversions
Nothing super specific. Still eating lots of pizza, lots of cereal, and I've also been making bacon almost every morning, which I NEVER do. Bacon and bacon cheeseburgers are apparently a thing with this child. The only thing I'm not craving at all is Mexican food, which is soooo strange because I could usually eat that every single day. 

Been feeling them pretty good for almost a month now, and they are so much more intense than with Grayson. Love it! Other than when he's in my bladder. That's not as great. 

Still good. I'm able to get pretty comfy with the use of a pillow, and aside from Grayson kicking me in my back once he makes his way into our bed (every single night), I'm feeling good!

Daddy's Thoughts
He's mentioned several times in the last week or so how excited he is that we're going to have another little guy joining us shortly. I think we both know from last time how quick this last few months will go, so we know he'll be here before we know it. 

Fun Moments
20 week ultrasound! Loved seeing him moving around in there. He put his hand up at one point and waved his fingers around. I told Grayson the baby was waving at him and he thought that was so exciting! 

Looking Forward To...
Working on the nursery! I've figured out my "theme", which is really no theme at all but more of a color scheme, and now I'm trying to pick between two paint colors for the wall. Hubs says we can paint in the next couple of weekends, and then I can start with the fun stuff!
