Halfway there! 20 Weeks

I stole this weekly update format from a friend of mine. I probably won't keep up with doing this every week, but I'll try to do it every few weeks to keep you all up to date with what's going on.

How far along? 20

Total weight gain: up 3 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight, but I lost 8 pounds during the first trimester

Maternity clothes? I'm wearing maternity pants all the time. I went through my closet today to see what shirts I can wear, and I can still get into about 1/3 of my tops. The ones that don't fit are mainly because they are too short to cover the panel on my maternity pants.

Feeling: Really good, a little tired, but not too bad.

Sleep: I'm starting to feel a little uncomfortable at night, but if I change positions I'm fine most of the time.

Food cravings or aversions: None, really. I can't eat too much at one sitting, so I eat 5 or 6 times a day!

Best moment this week: Seeing our little peanut on the ultrasound!!

Movement: I'm feeling movement very regularly. Phillip has been able to feel it a time or two, but not very consistently. I thought that the baby was kicking more when I ran the handpiece (drill) at work, but I couldn't get it to do it again when I tried later in the day.

Gender: Still don't know, yay!!

Labor Signs: n/a

What I miss: Martini's and Sushi

What I’m nervous about: Nothing right now.

What I am looking forward to: Ordering the crib and really starting on the nursery.

Milestones & new this week: Today I'm officially halfway done!! The pregnancy site that I frequent says that the baby is the size of a cantaloupe (which seems like a big jump from last week's mango) or 6.5 inches long and 10.6 oz. At my ultrasound this week, the tech told us that the baby weighs around 13 oz, so I'll see if my doctor will adjust my due date at my appointment on Monday.

Ultrasound Pictures!

Phillip & I went for our ultrasound today. The little peanut was a little sleepy, but the tech was able to see everything that she needed to see. Here are a few pictures, and if I can figure it out, I'll try to upload the video that they gave us.

Spring Break in Carmel-by-the-Sea

Phillip & I just got back from a week in California with his cousin Jeremy and his wife Melanie. We had a great week (despite rainy and chilly weather). I wore my new maternity jacket the whole week, so I don't really have any pictures that show my growing belly. Our ultrasound is next week, so I'll post and updated belly picture along with snapshots (and maybe a video) from the ultrasound.

We took a cruise down the highway to big sur:
We were supposed to have a sunset picnic on the beach, but it was sprinkling, so we had it in the living room!

Wedding Weekend

I was recently in the wedding of one of my best buddies from Dental School. We had a great weekend with the whole crew, so I thought I would share a few pictures of our fun weekend.
