20 weeks - Half way there!!
23 weeks in Barcelona, Spain
23.5 weeks in Spain
Unfortunately, I haven't been keeping the best record of this pregnancy... but as always I have excuses :) I was so sick in the beginning and once I started feeling good I was working everyday driving out to LA making me totally exhausted by the time I got home and then we went to Europe for 2 weeks and now I'm almost 25 weeks! Time was going so slow in the beginning and now I can't believe how fast it's flown.
Feeling Movement? : This little girly is an active little stinker, kicking and moving non stop. I can see her kick through my five million layers of shirts and Landon was feeling her at 18 weeks. During one of her kicking sessions I counted 2-5 seconds in between each kick and it lasted for 2-3 hours, it was exhausting me that I don't understand how she kept going, I'm guessing she has daddy's energy?!
Ultrasound : We got to see her at our ultrasound appointment the morning we flew out to Spain, she is a little stinker and burrows her head constantly down into my pelvis (I can feel her when she does it daily and it burns!) The ultrasound tech couldn't get a profile shot of her because she was so nuzzled and stubborn but she was able to get a clear shot of her nose and full lips that were moving back and forth, it seriously melted my heart!
Here's a fun little survey I've seen other mamas answer that I thought I'd fill out!
How far along are you? I'll be 25 weeks in 2 days! 15 weeks left
How am I feeling? I felt amazing in Europe, we walked and climbed stairs all day and I was super impressed with my energy level but since I've been home jet lag has taken over and all I want to do is sleep. I also have felt a big growth spurt during the last couple days, hence my 12 hours of sleeping yesterday... yikes!
How big is baby? 1.5 lbs. - 8.5 in. The size of an ear of corn... according to my app :)
Maternity clothes? I've been wearing maternity pants/spandex since week 13 because baby girl sits SO low and I felt like I was smashing her. Other than that I wear my regular clothes and am now on the hunt for some cute dresses for the warmer weather.
Stretch Marks? Not yet
Heart Burn? Thankfully not yet! I have a super long torso so I might get lucky and skip the heartburn part of pregnancy? Hopefully...
Sleep? I switch sides probably like 10 times every night with my million pillows and get up to go to the bathroom at least 3 times so sleeping isn't the best, but that's expected. I also started getting my crazy intense dreams again which really make me feel like I don't sleep.
Best Moment of the week? Best moment was seeing her full lips and little nose in the ultrasound before we left for our trip a few weeks ago, I wish I could see her everyday!
Food cravings? Chili! Which is the weirdest thing because I don't like meat that much and I rarely ate it before I was pregnant. I still don't eat it much, probably 1 every month but I think about it daily. lol I also crave fruit: oranges, strawberries and watermelon. And dang Europe got me on a sugar kick after eating their chocolate croissants everyday so now sugar is tempting.
Food aversions? I'm still not into onions or garlic which is sad because they used to be a favorite.
What I miss? Sitting with my legs crossed or just being able to sit normally! She sits really low, like I said before, and I have to stretch out my entire body just to get comfortable.
What I'm looking forward to? Finishing her nursery! When we got home from Europe, Landon and I bought and put together her crib, dresser and stroller/car seat that next day we got home. lol We were obviously excited. Now we have everything in its place and now I'm just finishing on decorating, artwork and making her mobile!
