20 Week Update

I'm officially 20 weeks along & halfway there! According to Baby Center, Reese weighs about 10.5 ounces & is 6.5 inches from head to bottom & 10 inches from head to heel. Apparently through 20 weeks, babies are measured from head to bottom (crown to rump) since their legs are so curled against their torso & hard to measure. After 20 weeks they're measured from head to toe. Right now, Reese is the length of a banana from head to heel!

How am I feeling? I'm still feeling good though I seem to be more tired between 2 & 3pm which has been rough for the tail-end of work. I've been forcing myself to get to the gym regardless since my back is sore & working out seems to help. It's never easy to drag myself to the gym after a full day of work, but I'm always thankful I went & feel so much better after. I am so trying to soak up the second trimester break from discomfort too since I puke all through the first trimester & feel like I have the flu & then I feel uncomfortable & massive during the third trimester. At this point while I'm working or sleeping, I forget I'm even pregnant most days!

Any new changes this week? Reese's movements seem a lot stronger & I'm feeling her a lot more often which is great. I'm still anxious to have my big ultrasound & just praying & praying that all checks out normal.

Weight gain? I've officially gained one pound!

And this little stinker has been really challenging us this week & testing our patience. His favorite word seems to be no & he shrieks it in an demonic way which rings through my ears & down my spine. Yesterday I was so exhausted that I have to say it was a relief to get him to bed so I could finally get myself to bed too. I love him to bits, but raising a two-year old is not always easy. Any little thing can set him off & you never know what it's going to be. It doesn't help that he's had a cough all week which is making his sleep very restless. Luckily the cough is tapering away so hopefully the demonic NO! goes with it too!
