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 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.

  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
