20 WEEKS!! :)

How far along?  20 weeks
Total weight gain:   about 6 pounds
Maternity clothes?   I mostly wear my regular clothes still, but throw in some maternity tees, leggings & jeans here & there. My Bella Bands are my saviors! 
Stretch marks?  Not yet! I bought some stretch mark cocoa butter with tons of stuff in it so hopefully that helps minimize them!
Sleep? Eh! Between allergies, having to constantly pee, 2 dogs that take up too much room & currently a husband who is gone, it has not been going so well! My body pillow helps some, but somethings gotta give! 
Best moment this week:   My ultrasound!! :) Greg got to be there & we found out not only is baby healthy & big, but also a BOY! 
Miss Anything?   Wine & Amaretto Sours, sleeping through the night & having energy to do lots of things! 
Movement?  I believe so!  I think I am starting to feel his kicks from the outside every once in awhile! 
Food cravings:   BBQ sauce & orange juice! Yes, at the same time! ha
Anything making you queasy or sick:   nope! 
Starting to show yet? Absolutely! 
Gender:   BOY!! So excited about our lil man! He measured 14 ounces & in the 98th percentile! Whoa buddy! 
Labor Signs:   NO! And I hope I don't have any for a long time! 
Symptoms:   Heartburn for like the first time in my life! Peeing a lot & not sleeping so well! 
Belly Button in or out?   In
Wedding rings on or off?   On
Happy or Moody most of the time:   Mostly happy! A little down since Greg's been gone for a few days, but it'll get better! 
Looking forward to:  Buying more things for lil man & starting to decorate the room! 

In case you missed it... Our gender announcement! 

My favorite pic of lil man! Love his hands up by his face! He played with them during the whole ultrasound! 

Whole body profile pic! Check out that spine! 

 Marshmallow Lovers!! Pregnant girl's heaven in the morning!         

Onesies I bought for him! I couldn't resist! Orange & brown football! 

Well Greg is in the field so I've been going a little stir crazy in our house alone! Luckily I have some loving [though sometimes crazy] dogs to keep me company! Got plenty of cleaning done. I wanna organize the baby's room, but that takes so much more energy than I think I want to expel! So I shall wait until Greg is back & we can work on it together! There's a bunch of stuff in there that needs moved out before we get too much more, including his crib! 

And now that I have finished off what seems like half a bag of BBQ chips & ranch dip, I'm off to work on laundry & get ready for dinner with some lovely ladies!
