Baby Gardner- 20 weeks

Belly finally popped. Plus I just ate a huge dinner and lots of gender cake!

How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain.  11.5 lbs
Baby Development.  Baby can cover his ears with his hands if the sounds are too loud, and he may even "jump" inside the womb if any sounds startle him. The hair on his scalp is also growing.
Maternity Clothes? Still wearing my cloths, but I need to buy a belly band, the jeans just aren't wanting to button these days. But mostly wearing leggings and dresses when not in scrubs.
Stretch Marks? No signs yet!!
Sleep?Sleep is good, but I am waking up with a sore shoulder(whatever side I am laying on). Dr says no more back laying, so I am trying to sleep completely on my side
Best Moment of the week? Our 20 week appointment and ultrasound. He is growing so much. And of course finding out the sex!!!And feeling movement with my hand, that was AMAZING.
Symptoms?Starting to get some reflux, Tums takes care of it though. Also running is getting a little more uncomfortable. When I start running I feel like he is jumping up and down on my bladder.
Food cravings? Nothing in particular, fruit and yogurt still sound good all the time. And Cracker Barrel Cheddar Cheese.
Miss anything? nope
Movement? Oh Yeah, Its in little spurts, usually mid afternoon and in the evening. I love every movement.
 Gender ? ITS A BABY BOY!!!
Belly Button in or out? in
Goals for upcoming week?Get serious about the nursery decor. Also get the nursery closet cleaned out.
Looking Forward to? Being able to confidently buy little boy cloths and nursery items
 Thoughts? Half way there!!! Getting a little nervous to decide on a daycare, I don't want to take my little man to daycare, he is still going to be such a little nugget.


  1. congrats on baby boy!! also the hairband tricks works well with buttons on your jeans!! ;)

  2. Can't wait for our boys to be best friends!! So happy for you guys!
