Weight this week: 121.5 pounds
Measurement around waist: 29.5"
Measurement around belly: 32"
How big is baby? Baby weighs about 1 1/3 pounds (Yay! We're into pounds instead of ounces!) and measures about 12 inches long.
Maternity Clothes: I picked up a few shirts from Goodwill the other day. It's fun to have something new to wear.
Movement: Lots of movement these days! It's usually when I sit down or go to bed. I think I've already felt this baby kick my ribs!
Cravings: Apples, apples, and more apples! Especially ones that are just a tad sour. I'm also still loving baked goods and veggies.
Aversions: Still disliking fast food. Ha!
Aches/Pains: I've been having some pain in my right side. Yesterday morning it woke me up at 4:45 and lasted for an hour. At first my midwife and I thought it was round ligament pain, but when I showed my midwife where the pain was located she thought maybe it was uterine pain. If I have another episode of the pain I'm going to schedule a doctor's appointment for an ultrasound, just to rule out another placental abruption or other complications. It may just be a stitch in my side, but I want to be sure!
Sleep: Sometimes I have great sleep, and sometimes it's broken. We're sleeping in Helen's room right now because we're renovating our bedroom. Helen and Reuben are noisy sleepers, so that keeps me up sometimes. And my back hurts really bad sometimes. If I move to the couch, the pain goes away.
Can any of you recommend a good maternity pillow? I'm in the market, but I have no idea which is the best brand.
Fitness: I'm still working out most week days. On days where I feel tired or achy I do lighter exercise or stretching.
Probiotics: I added a probiotic to my supplements: BioKult. I'll probably switch it up with Prescript Assist or another probiotic when I'm done with it.
And that's my 20 week pregnancy update!
