Pregnancy Update - Week 20 | Lifestyle & Pregnancy


I didn’t do an update last week because nothing had changed from the previous update. So I thought fortnightly would suffice, especially knowing this was the big 20wk update.im officially half way there and al lot has happened this week.

How far along? 20 weeks and 2 days

Total weight gain/measurements: I haven’t looked at the scales in a couple of weeks but I think I’ve gained around 15lbs but 6 of that was purely Christmas. 

Maternity clothes: Bottom half for sure, I’m living in maternity jeans and have just purchased maternity denim shorts and leggings for my holiday. 

Stretch marks: None……. So far! But I had lost 2.5 stone a few years ago so I'm just about my original size so maybe I will see some soon. 

Sleep: Sleep has been fine up until last night, I’ve been awake since 3am but I think that’s because I was dreaming about prams, a sale ends today so I was wracking my brain over 2. Hopefully this is a one off but sleep currently is not a problem and I have noticed I haven’t napped as much over the last month (it was 1-2 hours daily but now it’s just a Sunday)

Best moment this week: There are 3 and all are equally important. On Friday I felt the first signs of movement, what I can only describe as gas bubbles or butterflies. Then I had my 20 weeks scan yesterday which was amazing and more detailed than the 12 weeks scan. I got to see fingers, toes, lips, nostrils and tiny baby feet and most of all found out I'm having a baby boy *gush*. Then this morning at 5am to top off the best few days ever I felt the first really kick, the previous ‘bubbles’ I have felt inside but the kick I could feel with my hand. Best week ever! 

Miss anything? Sleeping bra-less, these bazookas or getting BIG! And sleeping on my belly. 

Movement: plenty in the last few days. Getting tickled right now. 

Food cravings: just cake but not sure that is due to pregnancy or my greed as I'm not dieting. 

Anything making you queasy or sick? If I rush around in the morning and then get in the lift at work I feel light headed for a couple of minutes, not like me at all. 

Gender: BOY

Labour signs: none

Symptoms: constantly peeing

Belly button in or out? in

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: happy this week

Looking forward to: buying some baby boy clothes and decorating the nursery in the next few weeks. 

This our first clothing purchase, how cute is this R2D2 outfit (Starwars fans will appreciate this)

  2. Aww those first kicks and flutters are amazing!! I used to just sit really quietly and watch my belly when I could first see and feel movement (makes me sound a tad crazy). Congratulations on finding out you're having a boy. Did you have a feeling of what gender he was before the scan? xx
