20 Weeks

October 28, 2014

We've hit the halfway point! 

The Piko tops tend to hide the bigness, but trust me it's there. I feel like this week is a large and in charge kind of belly week. The kids have started picking on me, in a good way. I turned around in the lunch line to see a few of my boys standing behind me sticking their bellies out.

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 20 weeks
Size of baby: Baby H is the size of a banana.
Maternity Clothes: All maternity pants and bras, and Piko tops. I had to venture into maternity nursing sleep bras this week. The tatas are out of control. 
Gender: Boy
Movement: A little if I eat something sugary. I've had so much digestive stuff it's hard to tell if it's him or me. 
Sleep: Decent, but we are adjusting to the new house so it's weird and doesn't feel like home yet.
What I miss: Nothing this week.
Cravings: Super cold water and really cold raw fruit and veggies.
Symptoms: heartburn & minor nausea, my feet are a little puffy. I think my body just isn't use to carrying this much weight or weight that goes in this direction.

I haven't given a Dad update in a good while - he's doing well. He's been home a few weeks now and they are looking into how they'd like to finish off cancer treatment. We thought for a second they'd do radiation, but it seems they would rather get his strength up and do surgery.

We are awfully lucky to have him doing so well, the doctor commented that he's not seen anyone recover from this as quickly as he did. Which basically means he survived it. Thank God for giving us more years with the crazy old man either way:)
