20 Week Bump Update

This is a little delayed, like usual with me. I am now past the halfway point of my pregnancy with baby #2. With baby #1, I wrote several letters during my pregnancy and took photos at each milestone. This time I decided to purchase this pregnancy journal kit through Etsy and am basically completing simple journal entries as I take pictures.

I wanted to share a bit of this pregnancy:

Maternity clothes: Wearing maternity clothes and/or comfy workout clothes when we are staying around the house. With my first pregnancy I didn't pull out the maternity clothes until near end of my pregnancy (I was much smaller with #1), but I did notice that some of my clothes were stretched with a permanent "bump" afterwards. This time around, I pulled the maternity clothes out right away to avoid that!
Sleep: I am struggling with some insomnia, too cold/too hot fluctuations, and the need to regularly use the restroom every night during the middle of the night. Overall, I still feel like I am getting good, quality sleep. I suppose after exhaustion with an infant you learn to take what you can get!
Best moment this month: Feeling baby #2 kicking and hearing others guess the gender (we still have no idea, but might find out around Easter). I also love watching how excited Payton is for a new sibling. She is always talking about "her baby."
Worst moment this month: It's very challenging balancing a toddler, work, and overall life with pregnancy. I have had many moments where I wish I was more active with our toddler, but pregnancy limits me in several ways at the time.
Miss anything: As my belly is growing I am getting a bit uncomfortable and am missing the ease of not having a belly to tote around. With the weather warming up I have definitely missed the occasional beer or glass of wine.
Movement: Lots of kicks and somersaults!
Cravings: Lemon foods (same craving I had with Payton). Mostly, I just want food in general and to eat constantly! I'm trying to stay healthy but this girl doesn't say no to ice cream or chocolate!
Queasy or sick: Feeling good.
Looking forward to: I am so excited for our next ultrasound which is just before Easter. I love seeing our little one on the screen and there's a chance we'll find out the gender, pending baby's cooperation.
Happy Saturday everyone!
