Week 20--HALF WAY THERE!!!

I have 136 days left!

Baby girl is the size of a banana!
How far along?  20 Weeks
Total weight gain? About 11 pounds (I don't have a scale, so I'm actually not
positive on this.)
Maternity clothes? I haven't purchased any, but I love the ones that were loaned to me. So comfy!
Stretch Marks? No.
Best moment this week? Finding our apartment that we'll be living in when the baby comes!
Miss anything? I miss not being able to eat a lot in one sitting. I have to eat lots of tiny meals.
Movement? Yes! So much kicking and moving! I love it! I can't wait
for Chris to be able to feel it.
Food Cravings: I'm starting to want sweets more now, namely zebra cakes. But I still
want anything spicy. Buffalo wings, spicy chicken nuggets, etc.
Anything making you sick or queasy? Not really.
Worst symptom: Indigestion! It sucks so bad.
Labor signs: Not yet.
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time? "Moody." says my husband.
Looking forward to: Registering for baby stuff.



Little girl is the size of a banana this week and about 10.5 oz! She is just growing and growing! I have loved feeling her move more and more. I can't even describe the feeling. It's almost like little bubbles but I can totally tell that it's baby and not normal tummy bubbles.

We toured the birthing center today and I love it! The birthing suite is so cozy. It looks like a home and not like a hospital at all. The bed is big enough for mommy, daddy and baby to snuggle and they never take baby away from you.

My biggest concern was complications that would cause me to be transfered to the hospital in an emergency situation. They said that there are two main reasons that women transfer to the hospital, 1) They want an epidural 2) They are getting too tired pushing and won't progress. Both of these situation aren't emergency and there is no rush to get to the hospital. The midwife assured me that two of the biggest complications (mom hemorrhaging or baby not breathing) they have the equipment to take care of it at the birthing center.

We've been praying a lot about it and I feel really good about our decision to birth there. Our next step is to find out whether our insurance will cover any of it. (If not, it's pretty inexpensive).

I've been researching doulas  and trying to decide whether I want one or not. So I'll keep you updated on that one.

The next step in baby preparations is registering for baby gifts. I'm so excited to be a mom!!!
