20 Weeks.

Hello hello hello from the VERY HOT Kansas City!  This summer, y'all.  Phew.  This momma is melting.  I am feeling for all you ladies out there who are in your third trimester, waddling around in this heatwave!  Kudos to YOU!

Last time I blogged, we were heading out on vacation and what a BLAST it was!  I need to do a full recap, but I'll save that for another day when I have more time. 

I'm popping in for a quickie today, no pun intended. ;)

I am officially 21 weeks, but I took the photo last week at my official halfway mark.  I intended to type up a post that evening, but you know how that goes...

So let's just dive right in, shall we?

How Far Along: 21 weeks 3 days!

Due Date:  November 30th!

Weight Gain: 5-6 lbs but have slowed in the belly growth, which is a bit of a relief!  Don't get me wrong, I love showing off my growing frame, but I was large and in charge pretty early this time. Thankfully I haven't grown much since then as you can tell by the side by side comparison below.

Maternity Clothes: Oh girl, yes. 

Stretch marks: Please.  I was covered in them before I got pregnant.

Symptoms: THIS MOMMA IS TIRED!  This was one of my main symptoms with Lara, so I can't say I'm surprised at this one.  Naps happen on the regular these days.

Cravings: Sonic Cheddar Bites & Ranch!!

Gender: GIRL!!!!!!  I have to say, I was SHOCKED when we found out we would be bringing home another little girl...SHOCKED.  I was absolutely, 100% convinced it was a boy.  This pregnancy has been such a different experience,  I've had lots of anxiety this time around and overall, much harder on me physically.  So it had to be a boy, right?  WRONG.  My shock wasn't sadness, it was just surprise.  I had to switch perspective of what life was going to be like.  Once I began to wrap my mind around watching our two little girls holding hands, running around the front yard together, it all became so much more real.  We could NOT be more excited!

Mood:  Anxiously excited to meet her!

Nursery: Farmhouse Chic--Can't WAIT to see it all come together, because right now, it's just a vision and a Pinterest board.  

Movement: Lots of jabs these days!  She is very active in the evenings...hopefully that's not indicative of her schedule once she arrives!  My placenta is on the exterior, which typically means you don't feel quite as much, but this girl is STRONG!

Sleep: Pee, sleep, pee, sleep, pee, sleep & dream!  Last night I dreamed I had twin girls and they were big 'ol babies!  One was 9 lbs 8 oz.  Lara was a tiny little nugget, at 6 lbs and 16 inches long....let's hope this little girl keeps with the trend!

Workouts: A few miles on the treadmill a few times a week and 21 day fix cardio here and there.  It's good to get moving again!

Names: Undecided and I suspect it'll stay that way until we meet her!

12/16/20 weeks

Hope everyone's having a great week!
