20 Weeks

Sunday was amazing. Our days got longer. The high was 68! We worked in the yard and house and ended our day with a sunset cruise!

I posted this masterpiece on Instagram last week for #tbt. It’s something I drew when I was 4 years old…my mom expecting my younger sister Angela!

12 weeks versus 20 weeks. I took the 20 week pic yesterday after spin class. What a change!
12 weeks vs 20 weeks
How far along? 20 weeks
Baby’s size: about the size of a banana and about 10 1/2 inches long from head to toes
Total weight gain: 10 pounds
Symptoms: I had the strangest thing happen today. I was sitting in the passenger seat of the car waiting for my fiance to come outside and my feet and legs got extremely tingly and right after noticing that I got very dizzy and lightheaded. For some reason instead of sitting still and relaxing I felt like I should go inside and lay down. I made it to the kitchen and almost fainted. Luckily Travis caught me and helped me to the sofa. I felt better after shutting my eyes for a few minutes but I still called my doctor’s office to see what they thought. They asked about how much water I had been drinking and what I had for breakfast. They mentioned that maybe my blood pressure and iron needed to be checked. Because I have had a healthy, normal pregnancy so far they decided that I didn’t need to come in and asked me just to monitor it and call back if/when it happens again. I have an appointment Friday for an ultrasound and next Monday for my regular check up so I’m not bothered about not being seen like I would be if my next appointment were a couple weeks away.
Clothes: I didn’t take my regular weekly pic today because I haven’t felt well since the almost fainting episode. I’ll tell you about my clothes from my Sunday boat trip. My plaid button up is Superdry brand (non-maternity). My tank is the same from last weeks update, a maternity ribbed knit jersey tank from Old Navy. My shorts are Target (non-maternity) and in case you wondered they aren’t buttoned or zipped…thanks belly band!
Workouts – Last week (Mar 3 – Mar 9):
  • 1 hour spin class
  • 1 hour prenatal yoga class
  • 4 miles on the elliptical
  • and another 1 hour spin class
Last week: We bought our current home last November knowing that it needed some updating. Our first 2 projects are getting hardwood floors installed and having the entire house painted. Last week we had 3 different contractors out to measure and quote for flooring. We’re excited to make a decision and get started with the reno! Also, as of Saturday we are finally experiencing constant spring whether. I’ve been digging old plants out of my potting containers outside, picking up sticks, trimming dead palm tree branches and just enjoying being in flip flops.
Cravings: Whole Foods brand of “cheerios” with milk or almond milk and best with banana and granola. Lemon hummus…I accidentally bought it but it was a good accident….it’s delish and SO good with rice crackers. Any kind of yogurt. After grocery shopping, I usually have 6-8 different flavors in the fridge. Avocados on toast. Avocados on chicken. Avocados in general. Stoneyfield organic creme caramel frozen yogurt. I’m proud that I can make a pint last 3 nights 🙂
Drinking: Decaf. Water. Zevia Ginger Ale. Coconut water. Unsweetened iced tea with fresh lemon.
Looking forward to: My ultrasound on Friday is top of the list. We also ordered our crib today to celebrate the 20 week mark. We decided on the Babyletto Hudson crib in white. I also got an organic crib mattress to go with it. Both are from All Modern. Free shipping and they will be here by Monday!

  1. I like that crib! If it’s not the exact one you showed me a few months ago, then it’s pretty similar. Yay for moving forward! I hope you get yours floors and painting done soon so you can finish the nursery!
