20 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2!

13 November 2013

How far along? 20 weeks 1 day! I am officially halfway there!
Total weight gain: I'm sick with a horrible cold/sore throat so weighing in this morning was the last thing on my mind! I will update this info sometime this week ;)
Maternity clothes? Yes, although the t-shirt I'm wearing in this post is not maternity and it actually fits really well (for now, we'll see how far it can stretch!). It is actually one of our new Friendliest Friend t-shirts that go on sale very soon! Jonathan is working with a very talented graphic designer on getting the website up and running so I will let you know when it's finished.
Stretch marks? No new ones but my belly is soooo itchy! :( I am oiling it up every night in hopes that I don't get anymore.
Sleep: I know I'm not getting enough...going to bed too late and waking up too early is not really the best option for anybody! 
Best moment this week: Finding out the gender of our baby :)
Miss anything? Feeling well, I hate being sick! Other than that, no.
Movement: Yes - I feel movement on a daily basis now although it's still quite light and nothing too strong...no big kicks yet!
Food cravings: Nope, but I have been really hungry this week - or at least I was before I got this cold!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really, except I'm still not drinking half as much coffee as I used to. I will order a decaf Americano if we're out somewhere but I don't take one for breakfast anymore, or in the afternoon either which I used to do all the time!
Gender: We found out last Tuesday that we are having a BOY!!!!!! I can't believe it :) We are so thrilled even though I am a bit nervous at the same time...I don't know the first thing about boys! But I am looking forward to having one of my own!

Labour signs: No.
Symptoms: Bigger boobs (I'm back up to an E cup again...ahh!!) hormonal acne, heartburn, itchy bellybutton/belly! I remember this symptom from last time round and it was so irritating! I think it means that the skin around my bellybutton is stretching and you are not supposed to scratch as it can cause more stretchmarks but sometimes it gets unbearable! Like I said above, I have been using oils & creams to prevent them as much as possible. I also just got a call from my midwife this afternoon letting me know that my iron levels are low, so I have had to be put on an iron supplement. Hopefully this will help with my energy levels! 
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Shopping for our baby boy!!
