How far along? 20 weeks...halfway there!!!! Baby J can hear sounds and even cover up her ears if it's too loud (how cute is that?!)
Maternity clothes? Oh yes. I tried to wear a pair of regular shorts this week with the rubber band trick and it was a disaster. I ended up walking around the Riverwalk with my pants completely unbuttoned all day (thank the Lord for tunic shirts.) I felt like one of those unfortunate size 0 Hollister-wearing girls that walk around all day like that ON PURPOSE looking like they got dressed so fast they literally didn't have time to zip their fly. Which was great, because I've never felt like a size 0 before...
Sleep: Pretty well, although I got my first calf cramp one night this week. Ow ow ow....the funny thing is I mostly slept through it and really put two-and-two together when I woke up the next morning and had an extremely sore left calf!
Best moment this week: So many fun times with Jill, Luke & Gina...I think my favorite was when we went to Gruene Dance Hall and learned how to two-step. FINALLY! Now I'm officially Texan.
Miss Anything? No I pretty much overindulged on everything this week. There was no room for missing any pregnant-unfriendly foods because I was just trying to find extra room in my stomach for more brisket. My life is tough, what can I say?
Movement: Ok, yes for sure. I've been feeling them for a while, but I've been looking for "butterfly wings" for so long and ignoring all of the other things I've been feeling because no one told me they STOP feeling like butterfly wings! They definitely feel like kicks and I can even feel as she's somersaulting around (one of her favorite pasttimes for sure)
Food cravings: Fruit still. And apparently Baby J can taste what I'm eating now so she is going to come out LOVING the taste of peanut butter and banana!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! Feelin' great!
Have you started to show yet: Yep, I've definitely popped
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In, but getting flatter by the day
Wedding rings on or off? On!! I tried to put it on and it fit!! I wore it for a little while, but then got nervous my fingers were going to swell up again (it's so hot) so I switched back to my fake one. BUT it gives me hope for when it cools down!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy...a little emotional sometimes but mostly happy
Looking forward to: Pumpkin spice lattes come out in a month!!!! Is anyone else counting down the days?? Also, my 20 week appointment is next week, so that's always fun! Technically that's when I'm supposed to find out the gender...can you believe that?? If we hadn't gone to that private sonogram place I STILL wouldn't know that Baby J is a girl!!! Mind blown.
