Week 20 & He or She? Read on to See!

20 weeks - we are half way! 
It just doesn't seem possible to be this far along already.

Cravings // Edamame is pretty much amazing. I polished off a 14 oz bag of those puppies a couple of days ago, and I have zero regrets about it. Cherry tomatoes are still pretty awesome. And pineapple is about the best. thing. ever.

Size of Baby // According to My Pregnancy app, M² is the length of a banana. Or, 6 1/2 inches head to rump, or 10 inches head to heel, and 10 1/2 ounces.  

Symptoms // I certainly have more energy than the first trimester, but I don't mind a nap when Marcus goes down, and come 9:00PM I am totally spent. I've also noticed the round ligament pain is pretty prevalent when I run. I've also noticed I'm pretty susceptible to crying over the most random and ridiculous stuff : tv shows, commercials, the fact that our house seem to always be 1.7 bazillion degrees Fahrenheit.

Movement //  Movement is becoming stronger and more frequent. It won't be too much longer until Scott and Marcus will be able to feel M² moving about. 

Sleep // Falling asleep and staying asleep aren't an issue. It's just I have to find just the right position to fall asleep. And then I have to pray I don't have to wake to pee. I've found once I wake the pregnancy insomnia takes a strong hold.

Clothing // My workout clothes are all still pre-pregnancy. That's not to say they all fit like they did pre-pregnancy… For the most part I'm in maternity pants/shorts, and stretching my non-maternity tops out for as long as possible. Maxi dresses are my go-to when yoga pants aren't necessarily deemed appropriate.

Best Part of the Week/ Looking Forward To… // Last weekend we were fortunate to spend time in Kansas City and Iowa. While home we were able to gather both sides of our families to celebrate Marcus' birthday. During that time together we announced to our families M²'s gender. I'll share just how we made the announcement with our families next week.

However, Marcus couldn't wait to share the good news here, too.
We're having a girl. 
Holy smokes.
WE ARE HAVING A GIRL!!
