Better Late Than Never! {Preggo Post, 20 wks}

Sooo in case anyone missed it on facebook we're pregnant with number 2! We waited a while to tell everyone because we like to get through the first trimester before we announce anything...It's been a rough pregnancy compared to my last to say the least, i've been way more sick with this one than Joshua...which led me to think the whole time it was a girl and a few weeks ago we found out low and behold it is a GIRL!! We couldn't be more excited for this little girl and for Joshua to be her big brother :) We always knew we'd want a little girl to complete our family, we are so blessed! Last week we got to see this at the 20 week ultrasound, she was doing flips nonstop (clearly my child) and our sweet girl gave us a little smile...

all her organs looked perfect and everything measured right on track, heartbeat in the 150's same as usu...I know i won't remember to do it every week, but for memory keepsake I'll try to keep up with these preggo posts as best I can!

How far along? 
20 weeks, halfway there!

Total weight gain/loss: Up total of 10 @ last week's appt, (Trying to keep it under 35 pounds, gained 50 with J oops!)

 Maternity clothes? Nope.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Best moment this week: Seeing our baby girl on ultrasound.
Miss anything: In this insane heart, a nice cold beer or margarita i sure do miss...although watching my hubs drinking one even turns me off!...Oh and being able to breathe, as of the 2nd trimester my nose is soo super stuffy!

Movement: I feel kicks every day! Started feeling them at 17 weeks, and since last week hubby can feel the kicks too, they're always pretty low!
  Food cravings: Same as from beginning...potatoes, potatoes, and more potatoes...grapefruit, pineapple and red meat, and my biggest craving...GYROS mmmm!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Mexican and chinese blahh...although mexican is ok sometimes, i sure do miss it since i used to eat it at least twice a week!

Have you started to show yet: Yep! Although i'm carrying so much lower with her than J! Low and compact this go round...i feel like he was up much higher!

  Gender: A GIRL!! :)

Labor Signs: No!
  Belly Button in or out?  Very out! 

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy...esp. now that i'm back to the land of the living!

Looking forward to: Our next appointment!
