{my pregnancy} 20 weeks

  • I'm half way there! I've been feeling extremely well all these first 5 months. Baby F has been so good to me and I hope it'll continue the same.

  • My total weight gain so far: 3 pounds (1.36 kilos) I lost the pound I gained last week. I guess exercise and adding more vegetables and fruit to my diet has helped a lot. But I've heard stories about how some women put on all the weight, and much more!,  in the last months. Hopefully I'll be able to keep it under control and under the recommended ranges in the following months.

  • We had our monthly appointment today. Everything is going perfectly! I couldn't be happier.

  • This week I've been chewing sugarless cinnamon gum almost all day, every day.

  • I still haven't felt the baby. But I started talking to him. I also chose some nice, relaxing music to make him listen to while I'm working.

  • My regular clothes still fit, even though my pants feel a bit too tight now. So I've been living in leggings and tunics and/or dresses. I went ahead and ordered a pair of maternity jeans and black pants and I'm sure I'll put them to good use.

  • I definitely had to buy new, "bigger" bras. 

  • Ideas for the nursery are maturing. I have three color/theme schemes already. I decided I should stop creating more schemes and just choose one. Otherwise the process could last forever.

  • Baby F already has enough outfits for his first 6 months of life thanks to Grandma D.
