I am 20 weeks and 5 days pregnant, and I am feeling it! 🙂
What is going on with my baby. I am pretty sure I have gained 30 lbs in these 20 weeks, but the nurse at my doctor’s office said I have gained 12 lbs. That sounds so much better than the number in my head, so I am going to go with it! My belly is showing and people are starting to want to touch it. I read something hilarious online about tips on dealing with a pregnant lady (it was a little harsh, but many of you can relate to it).
Since my last update, I have had 2 ultra sounds and we found out we were having a girl! Both ultra sounds gave us the same predictions. My 3 year old has came up with unique names like Burrito, Cinderella, and Minnie. My husband and I have both agreed on the name ‘Chloe’. From now on, you will probably see me reference her as “The New Baby”.
The Beautiful: I am feeling little baby movements and I have had 2 more ultra sounds since my last update. I remember feeling my movements a lot more with my first pregnancy. After seeing the ultra sounds it is very reassuring that there is something dancing around like crazy in my belly! I can’t wait to meet her face to face! Sometimes she likes to dance in the middle of the night.
The Ugly: Okay everything is beautiful when you are pregnant. Except my hormones are raging. I am still suffering with morning sickness. Now I have this shooting pain in my lower back-hip-behind area that might be a sciatic nerve. Not to mention, I don’t fit in my clothes and yo-yo’ing between different sizes is really emotionally draining and killing my self esteem. For some reasons my arms look HUGE to me :(. I am determined to get to my correct weight after I have this baby. If I do good I will share my experience with all of you.
The Cravings: So far I haven’t had the bad aversions like I did with my first. BUT darn do I want WATER all the time. Yesterday, the only thing that sounded good was cold crisp veggies and fruit! This is a change from the normal chocolate and cupcakes I usually crave! Another weird craving is BBQ. It doesn’t sound so weird since I am in Kansas City with some of the best BBQ places around but usually I am NOT a BBQ fan, and BOY do I love me some BBQ now-a-days!
The Bargains: This baby I have labeled “My Bargain Baby”! She has a small stock pile of diapers, any baby CVS freebies I have set aside, I am stalking the daily deal sites and it is so much fun! I have shared tons of baby freebies too. If you are looking for a list comment below and I will put one together. Many things do require a shipping fee….BUT if it is FREE…I will take it!
DISCLOSURE: It has been a couple of months since my last update. I was a little hesitant to have lots of updates because of a couple of negative comments.
I am extremely blessed and happy to be having another baby. My husband and I wanted another baby and of course with the grace of God it is happening very smoothly. For those that struggle with pregnancy, I will pray for you that your blessing will come soon.
I understand that I am a Bargain Blogger, but this is also my personal blog. I am always a mother and a wife first…before I am a blogger. I hope you follow me because of ME and not just the deals I find. 🙂
