20 Weeks

I'm about 21.5 weeks today,
but never did my 20 week update!

No major changes for week 20, but......

we are HALFWAY there!! 

Gender: GIRL!!! 

Total Weight Gained: 2 pounds

Sleep: A little better than the past 2 weeks- I do get really hot though and get up to pee at least once a night.

Maternity Clothes: Still LOVE. Wear mostly non-maternity shirts and dresses, but love my shorts and capris. 

Best Moment of the Week: Feeling her move around lots more! Still not enough for others to feel, but I know it's coming soon!

Food Cravings: Lots and lots of aversions, but my appetite is slowly coming back. Still loving sweet and sour things though! This week I was really in the mood for chocolate!

Aversions: Pretty much everything, but two major major aversions: 
 1. Steak  2. Wishbone Italian Dressing.     GAG!

Symptoms: Thankfully no major symptoms this week! Got sick a few times and had occasional heartburn, but that's about it.

Movement: Yes! Hoping for some bigger movements though, but these flutters are wonderful!

What I miss: Not feeling sick in the car, being able to slowly wake up/relax in bed until I am ready to get up, a good night sleep. But who cares- it's all SO worth it! 

What I'm looking forward to: Feeling some harder kicks and movement for others to feel!

Weekly Wisdom: Search daily for awesome finds on craigslist! I know I already mentioned this one, but I just bought another huge bag of baby girls clothes for the fall/winter season for just $35!! 

Milestones: Baby girl is halfway baked!! Hoping time continues to go by this fast!!

I feel like our pregnancies are SO similar-I love it :)
Has your doctor said anything to you about your weight gain? I had only gained 6 lbs by 20 weeks and my dr. was NOT happy-I told her I was still getting sick EVERY day...what was I supposed to do?! Then it got a little better and I gained 6 lbs. in a month and then this last month I didn't gain and she was not happy again. Just wondering if it's just my doctor or not. I really feel like I'm doing everything I can! I rarely get sick anymore and eat all the time. Oh well! As long as baby is healthy!
