20 weeks!

How far along: 20 weeks...I'm happy to be at the half-way point! I know this is probably the best part of being pregnant!

Size of baby: According to thebump.com baby is the size of a cantaloupe!  

Total weight gain: Up about 6 pounds.

Gender: It's a GIRL!! I guess those wives tales held some truths? ;)

Movement: Yes! I started feeling some tiny movements sometime after 18 weeks. She is most active at night when I'm lying really still. Such a sweet feeling!

Sleep: Sleep is still good!

What I miss: Nothing!

Cravings: I just like food :) 

Symptoms: Besides a suffering complexion, I'm not experiencing many symptoms right now. I feel so energized, and I'm loving that!

Maternity clothes: I'm in between right now for pants. My regular pants fit with the belly band but are pretty tight, and maternity pants are still too big. I'm wearing most of the same tops...some of my regular ones are getting a little short though.

Best moment this week: Seeing how much our baby has grown since we last saw her at 10 weeks and finding out that she was a she! Our gender reveal on Saturday was also a blast :) Loved being able to share that with our loved ones!

Dad is excited about his baby girl, too! I think he'll be a great girl-dad...he's been taking lessons from my dad for the last 8+ years, after all ;) He's pretty sure he'll be carrying his pistol around for the next 20 years or so! 
You know, just in case.
