How far along: 17-20

Next appointment:  July 21st.

20 Week Ultrasound

20 Week Ultrasound

Gender:  Still have no clue!

Total weight gain/loss:   Gained 3 pounds.

Exercise:  Walking and just staying busy with yoga, squats, piyo.

Stretch marks: Yes! one little one under my belly button.

Swelling: No.

Maternity clothes: Just wearing large sized clothing, with a few splurges on maternity outfits. Brittney gave me her maternity clothes, so I have plenty of shorts and pants.  

Belly button: In.

Happy or moody: Happy. Loving every minute of it!

Sleep: Officially not able to sleep on my back or stomach. Using my pregnancy pillow but thinking I need another one? Who knows. I constantly find myself on my back and then quickly switching to my side.

Food cravings:   Nothing crazy. I really want pizza or red spaghetti sauce since I had stopped eating tomatoes because of my acid reflux. Really loving apple juice? lol Also, my friends told me about Breakfast Essentials….really helping me to get a little extra into my diet when I don’t feel like eating.

Symptoms:   Acid reflux, and still can’t stand smelling the dog food.

Movement:  Yep! Can’t wait for Collier to be able to feel the movements!!

Labor signs: No.

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach. I had a few bad days at work and just wanted a steaming hot bath. So I went to the pool and enjoyed the sun!


What I’m loving:  That everyone now knows! We put it on Facebook, so I guess it is official. We had told family and close friends a few weeks ago, but we felt the need to let the world know. We have had so many people praying for us, and I honestly feel the prayers and support. So I just want the prayers to switch to a healthy baby now.

What I’m looking forward to:  We have a few small vacations coming up and I can’t wait to get away and relax.

Best moment this week: We did our registry and had so much fun and got mildly overwhelmed. We also were able to spend time with Gina and Addison, and when we were saying goodbye I actually got emotional since I won’t be seeing them until we are both mom’s! It’s been amazing having someone so close going through almost exactly the same thing! Glad Collier will hopefully see them one more time in September.

Purchases: My mom sent us the cutest warm jacket for a newborn. And then I realized we aren’t in Florida, and this baby is going to be born in the winter months! We also received the sweetest onesie from our friends, Allison and Chris.



Milestones: No more secrets! Really starting to get busy with the nursery and showers and such. So much to do and only 4 months left!!!
