We had the 20 week u/s this morning, baby Charlie looks great. Nothing is wrong, measured almost exactly 20 weeks (19w 6d), and we still kept the gender a secret. I told the u/s tech and she was cool, didn't let me get any sneak peaks. DD and DH kept reminding me that they think it is a girl, I figure someone should be right, so I say boy (even though I am pretty sure it is another girl...LOL). Hey, at least we have all the clothes for a girl, right?
How far along: 20 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Total I have gained about 8 pounds. The issue here is that I had gained over 10 in the month preceding pregnancy due to the fertility drugs (my body swells) and I had gained another 20 while TTC on Clomid. So honestly, I am about where I was with DD at this point. Hoping I don't gain too much as I didn't look like myself at the end with DD.
Maternity clothes: Yes. Not thinking people are questioning it anymore...
Stretch marks: I have found new ones...near my belly button (others are leftovers from DD)...Yay for battle wounds!
Sleep: Doing ok...getting up regularly to use the restroom, and more lately because I think I have a cold...I get thirsty.
Movement: Late afternoon and evenings are the best times for baby Charlie. At the u/s this morning the little one was not cooperating as much as the u/s tech wanted...even after I drank a glass of oj.
Cravings: I have been craving pizza since Thursday. We were going to order some on Saturday night but the blizzard kept that from happening...:( Aversions: None. Although after eating 4 Christmas cookies, cake at work did not sound appetizing. I ate it anyway though.
Gender: Did not find out today although the u/s tech told me she knew...:) She was great at hiding the parts, I know what to look for! Thought I saw something but she assured me I was wrong...LOL
Symptoms: Heartburn - nope. Swollen nose/sinuses - yes (HA! Thought that was from pregnancy but it is probably a cold as I am losing my voice, although I feel fine?). Fat ankles - nope. Constipation - yes. Not sure if this is a symptom but when I sit on the floor to type on my laptop my legs are both fall asleep.
What I miss: Not a whole lot of anything actually. Sushi on Friday (the cooked kind).
What I look forward to: Charlie being viable. DD talked about the baby coming now, was a bit hard explaining that the baby has to grow quite a bit more.
Moods: Eh, nervous...about everything. Health of the baby, work, bills, etc.
Milestones: I had drank some oj, was sitting watching TV and felt constant kicks, usually when I tell DH Charlie stops, not this time, he said he felt the kick...pretty cool.
Medical Concerns: Forgot to ask about the subchorionic hemmorhage and if it was gone today. The tech didn't say anything about it so I am assuming it is ok, but I will wait and ask at my appt in 3 weeks if it is gone.
Weekly Wisdom: A shovel in the car is a good idea if you need to dig yourself out, we had a few issues, but it happens when plows are taken off the road!
Best moment this week: Today's u/s and seeing that baby Charlie is doing great in there.
Worst moment this week: Don't really have one. The blizzard was nice, great learning experience driving in it, and fun to stay in the house with DH and DD. DD and I did some baking!
