Celebrating Half Way There w/ 3 GIVEAWAYS

T.O. & fro 20 week bumpdate

Today marks the half way mark. In just 20 short weeks, Baby Wardo will be taking the world by storm and we can't wait!

Here's this week's 'bumpdate'...

How far along? 20 weeks

Due date: March 25, 2016

Baby's size? According to my app, Baby W is about the size of a banana - 10 inches from head to heel.

Gender? I say boy, Steve says girl, but we won't know until the end of March because we're keeping it a surprise :)

Weight gain? Up about 8-10 lbs. 

Maternity clothes? LOVING maternity pants. I can't even think about going back to regular pants after baby is born.  I can still wear the majority of my normal tops. 

Symptoms? Mama is one tired chick! I'm tucked into bed by 9:30pm every night. Belly button is almost an outie and my sense of smell could rival a dog's. Besides that, I'm feeling great. 

Sleep? Trying to get a solid 8 hours, which includes lots of tossing and turning. As a 'former' stomach-sleepover, I've had a hard time adjusting to side sleeping. 

Aversions/cravings? Aversions: chicken. / Cravings: anything salty. No odd combinations, but I have been caught a few times eating salt straight from the shaker. (Bad, I know.) 

Miss anything? I could say beer and wine, but to be honest, it hasn't been that bad. How about -I miss being able to stay up past 10pm. 

Best moment of the week/what I want to remember? I have been able to feel baby's movements for a few weeks, but now that they're getting stronger, Steve was finally able to feel the kicks for himself. The look on his face was something I want to remember forever.

Looking forward to? See our little nugget on next week's ultrasound.
