20 Weeks!

3.28.2011

Pregnancy Highlights:
 
How Far Along:  20 weeks (plus 4 days) so almost 21 weeks!
 
Size of baby: Baby B is 11 ounces- about the size of a small cantaloupe.   
 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I weigh 133 which means I've gained 5 lbs total.
 
Maternity Clothes: Now that I am on bed rest finding clothes to wear is not as much of a struggle as it has been. I can stay in pajama pants and t shirts.
 
Gender: It's a girl!! :) Audrey Mayne Brockmeyer
 
Movement: She is a little gymnast, constantly flipping and moving!  
 
Sleep: Love sleep!
 
What I miss: After all the "things" going on with this pregnancy, I'm starting to miss normalcy. I just want to be able to enjoy the pregnancy instead of being stuck on a couch or in bed.
 
Cravings: Nothing too specific, this last week I ate a lot of salads and still love having bagels and cream cheese for breakfast.
 
Symptoms: After spending the weekend in the hospital they were able to make the bleeding stop and the cramps/contracts stop as well. Now that I am back home I have had a very small amount of bleeding which is to be expected.
 
Best Moment this week: As much of a "scary" moment it was going to the hospital Friday night...it was a joy to have Audrey "monitored". I got to hear her heartbeat constantly for a couple of hours and feel alot of movement as that strap around my belly was invading her space!
