20 weeks, I am half way through! I feel like, at this point, I can relax a bit about something going wrong. I am a bit of a pessimist my hubby says, but I prefer to think of myself as a realist. I am always preparing for the worst just in case something goes wrong. I want to be ready. I think it is just my mind’s way of protecting itself, but I have had two ultrasounds where they said everything looks good. This is even considering that I didn’t feel great walking away from my 20 week scan. The technician was a bit different, barely said anything and looked at the heart for so long! On top of that I have carried a baby to full term before with no issues and I am going to do everything I can to keep this pregnancy as good as it can be with kick counts, a healthy diet and exercise (back permitting or course)!

How far along? 20 weeks, HALF WAY!!
Total weight gain: I don’t know and to be honest I don’t really want to :/
Maternity clothes?  I found an old pair of maternity jeggings from when I was pregnant with Emeline! I am happy to have at least one more option to wear! All of my t-shirts are getting a bit short though :/ I have to wear a tank top underneath them!
Stretch marks? Nope
Best moment this week: Doing a sit down video for my vlog about my early sign and symptoms of pregnancy!
Miss anything? Warm weather. The cold weather and ice are starting to get to me. Where is the snow? Isn’t this Norway?
Movement: I felt more movement on Monday and Wednesday I think, but Thursday nothing and Friday only one solid punch. I can’t wait to feel more movement soon, darn anterior placenta! I hope this baby is a bit more active than miss Emeline was. I feel like she NEVER moved and I had to do extra kick counts! Towards the end I was able to feel her move her hands and that made things easier.
Food cravings: Vinegar! I don’t know why, but I swear could drink it this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just eggs still.
Gender: Boy
Labor signs: I feel like I have gotten a few Braxton Hicks contractions, but with Emeline I had them regularly starting at 15 weeks, so that is normal for me.
Symptoms: Heartburn, crying very easily, gas, PGP, extremely tired, irritable
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: I have actually been really irritable this week 🙁
Looking forward to: Going to bed!
Compared to 1st pregnancy: I am showing more now than I was with Emeline at this point.

(I took these photos at night after dinner, so I don’t know how accurate they are of the bump. I am going to try to take them in the morning from now on.)




Stay tuned for my 21 week update on Saturday!
