Bump-date: 20 Weeks

Whooaaa-oh, we're halfway there! -- you didn't think we'd get through this post without me getting that song stuck in your head, did you?? What kind of friend would I be if I didn't? You're welcome.

Well that escalated quickly... hello baby bump!
How far along: 20 weeks!

Baby’s size: Belgian endive, or a small cantaloupe

Total weight gain / loss: 11.5 lbs on my scale

Gender: in case you haven't heard yet, we will talk about it tomorrow! I'll share Baby W will be wearing pink or blue, plus how we told our families :)

Maternity clothes: more and more - still getting away with regular tops for the most part, but I have a feeling that won't last for long

Loving: lemonade, watermelon, yoga pants

Loathing: trying to pick a paint color, the humidity that has returned, trying to decide on something for dinner - nothing really sounds super appealing except for taco salad, all day, every day

Movement: we've got a mover! I have noticed it more and more, especially in the last week or so - I seem to have skipped (or not noticed) the "flutters" stage, and gone straight for actual movement. It's definitely more noticeable in the evenings, like after dinner.

Symptoms: headaches again if I don't drink enough water, some low-back pain if I am moving / standing for a long time

Mood: generally good! A little snappier that usual, I think - my already-low patience is dwindling

Husband: has finished the prep work in the nursery, and is ready to start turning it into a real room

Can't wait for: book club this week! I haven't been able to go in months, and I'm excited to see the girls again and talk about Station Eleven - it's a good read!

And just for a laugh, here's a comparison of 10 weeks & 20 weeks - remember when I thought there was a bump at 10 weeks?? Mwahahahaha. Skinny body, I miss you.

The difference 10 weeks makes!

I love how bumpy the bump looks! And who picked Belgian endive as the size comparison? I didn't even know there was Belgian endive.
