Bumpdate 2.0: 20 Weeks

We've made it to the halfway point! 




Due Date: December 1, 2017

How far along?: 20 weeks

Gender: It's a BOY!

Name: We're still working on it! Just like with Huston, there's one that we keep coming back to, but we aren't quite 100% set on it yet. I think I mentioned last week that we've been going through family trees on both sides trying to find something unique and fitting for our little man. 

Total weight gain:  ~15 lbs...no change from last week.

Stretch marks?: None that I've been...but I finally remembered to order the Bio-Oil that I used during my pregnancy with Huston, so I'm going to start lathering up with that each night with hopes it will prevent stretch marks again this time!

Symptoms: The bump is B.I.G!  It is now 125% obvious that I am pregnant. 

Maternity clothes?:  For sure! 

Sleep:  I'm sleeping well these days. Sometimes I get hot during the night and move to the couch where I can be directly beneath the A/C vent.  Huston has been waking us up extra early in the mornings {5:00 am} because he's hungry and wants "Pancakes! Toast! Leche!" The kid has to be going through a growth spurt or something because he'll eat some breakfast and then be content to go back to sleep for a little bit before rising for the day ahead. 

Cravings: For the first time ever, Ryan had to make a run to the grocery store to satisfy one of my pregnancy cravings...red vines licorice! I had seen someone eating it over the 4th of July holiday weekend, and the craving finally peaked to the point I.HAD.TO.HAVE.IT! 


Food Aversions: Nothing that I can think of!

Mood: Giggly! There is something about pregnancy that makes me laugh uncontrollably...at things I normally wouldn't even find that funny. It's quite comical though...when I find myself wiping tears from my eyes because I'm laughing so hard while Ryan is trying to figure out what could be so humorous.  

Best Moment of the Week: I received the sweetest package in the mail from one of my dearest friends...a request to be a bridesmaid in her wedding! Of course I said yes...and we can't wait to celebrate with Kelli and Corby in Mexico next summer!




Worst Moment(s) of the Week: Huston had a fever for several days in a row...but no other symptoms. After many phone consultations with the nurse, we finally took him in to see Dr. Diana on Friday...and he didn't have any fever at the time of the visit. She determined it must have been something viral and he was probably on the tail end of it. We made it through the next 36 hours with no fever, and then it spiked back up {not terribly high, but 102.0}. Thus, we were back in Dr. Diana's office on Monday. This time she thought it must be a sinus infection because he had lots of drainage in his throat, so we went home with a prescription for antibiotics.  He hasn't had a fever since Monday, so hopefully that sickness is in our rear-view mirror!

Miss Anything?: Not going to lie, I wouldn't mind a little Saturday brunch with bottomless mimosas. 

Looking Forward To: Still looking forward to our little getaway trip coming up in a couple of weeks.  It will be nice to have some family time along with a little R&R!
