20 Weeks

Well I'm halfway done with this pregnancy!
I'm not going to lie...it felt like it took forever to get here.
But I remember this happening with Ben too.
And once I hit the 20 week mark last time, things really started to speed up!
I'm sure the same thing is going to happen this time.
And maybe...just MAYBE....I'll be pregnant only for another 16 weeks like with Ben ;)


At 20 weeks:

Baby Aurora is really starting to get active. I felt her first movements at 19 weeks. It is so nice feeling the movement of a baby again. I would describe it as one of the coolest feelings in the world!

I've gained about 9 pounds. Not sure if that's good or bad so far. All I know is that I don't want to gain that extra 20 pounds again....brutal. So I'm still doing Zumba and Weight classes. Feels good!

I am definitely bigger than last time. My belly is much more round and out! It's probably due to the extra 10 pounds I had on there from Ben haha.

All of the nausea, cravings, tiredness, throwing up, etc....all ended when I hit 13 weeks.

I desperately need to go shopping for maternity clothes. Nothing is fitting!

Ben still doesn't really know what's going on. I try to explain that there is a baby in my tummy, but he just looks down then just suddenly starts giving me raspberries. Which is pretty cute lol.

I'm going in for my second ultrasound this week. This one will be the one where i need to have a full bladder. Which if i remember correctly...was a terrible feeling! But this ultrasound will let us know if she has any problems with her body, down syndrome, etc. I'm sure everything is fine, but there's always that worry that something is wrong!

    1. I've only had 2 appointments just because I really wanted to know the gender :) And me being a worry wart I wanted the second fetal examination US just to make sure everything was normal with her. But I doubt I will be going to anymore appts here haha. Its too much money! ANd ur probably keeping the gender a surprise again I assume??? So exciting our babies will be close in age!!
