20 Week Pregnancy Update

How far along? 20 weeks (I’m 21 weeks today, but I like to update once I’ve completed the week)

Maternity clothes? Nothing new, however I am in the market for a winter coat and an outfit for my work Christmas party. I’ll be heading to H&M because I find their maternity range, reasonably priced and the stylish out of everything I’ve seen.

Stretch marks? I thought I saw a stretch mark the other day on my belly, but then it vanished so I’m assuming it was a mark from my tights or something.

Best moment this week: Seeing our baby at the 20 week anomaly scan made me so happy πŸ˜€ and to know that all is well with the baby too makes me even happier!

Miss anything? Being able to walk properly, I’m starting to find when I’ve sat down for a while then try to get up and walk straight away my hips and lower stomach really hurts. I’m forgetting that I am nearly 6 months pregnant and should probably be slowing down a bit.

Movement: I’m feeling a lot of kicking! Kicks in the morning when I’m laying in bed and kicks at around 4pm too, I’m also feeling little rolls. I love feeling the baby so much, really puts a smile on my face.

Food cravings: Still the same, lots of chocolate! I can demolish a massive size bar of galaxy easily, it’s actually worrying as I’m always hungry and seem to be eating more than my 6ft 3inch fiancΓ©! That better stop when the baby arrives!

Anything making you queasy or sick: No not really :S

Gender: We didn’t find out at the 20 week scan πŸ™ It’s really hard to buy things when you don’t know the sex!

Labour signs: No.

Symptoms: You ready?

Bad lower back
Need to wee ALL THE TIME
Right hip pain
Sore boobs
Acid reflux
and round ligament pain.

There has been a few nice symptoms though!

My skin is glowing! 
Nails are super strong
and I have no under eye circles!

Belly button in or out? In, but I can feel it’s going to pop out very soon.

Wedding rings on or off? Still off.

Happy or moody most of the time: Same as last week, happy in the morning, but miserable, tired, hormonal come the evening.

Looking forward to: We’ve planned a little romantic getaway to The Cotswolds for the weekend, so cannot wait for that. And also putting up our Christmas decorations on the 1st Dec! I have been feeling really Christmassy!
