Halfway There

20 weeks 
According to What to Expect When your Expecting...Baby boy is about the size of a large banana (7inches, 11oz)

Weight gain:  I'm thinking around 5-7 pounds? Will update on Tuesday after my doctor's appt.

Maternity Clothes:  None yet....but very, very soon.  I only have one pair of jeans that still fit.  Thank goodness I get to wear scrubs everyday to them! 

Sleep:  Been sleeping great---I can still sleep on my stomach/side.  

Movement:  This is a tricky question....I will say No, although I have felt some "gas bubbles" etc. that could have been the baby, but they are all feelings I have felt nothing new.  I have an anterior placenta (my placenta is on the front towards my belly button) which isn't a bad thing, it just means that it usually takes longer to feel the baby move since there is that big cushion in!  Speaking of anterior placentas, I also read the other day that this increases your chances of the baby being born "sunny side up" (where the baby comes out head up, looking at the ceiling) problem there except they say that this is a much more painful birth...Great, huh?!  I will be asking my doctor about this on Tuesday...

Food Cravings:  Any and everything.  I have had the appetite of a horse lately and I'm especially loving some sweets...the more sugar the better.

What I miss:  a "drink."  Oh to be able to enjoy a drink after work some days or at a tailgate.  Also, still missing my cup of coffee every morning and afternoon...although I will get an occasional cup now and then....just because!

Looking forward to:  Feeling this little one move and THANKSGIVING!

Overall, I have been feeling great.  I have had a little bit of a back ache (mostly in the morning) and some  heart burn.

Now, I'm sure y'all have all been waiting for this.....
