.20 Week Baby Bump Update.

I can't tell you how fast this pregnancy is flying by! It feels like just yesterday we found out about our little peanut. I have been wanting to document everything and I thought what better time to start than now! I'm not sure if it will be a weekly or every other week thing since I don't want to bore all of you if there isn't too much of a difference from week to week. I know that I have really enjoyed reading other girls "bump updates" and seeing where I am in comparison, so I thought why not share with other girls how my adventure is going :)

{Due Date} April 28th 2015, 20 weeks along. Yay for being half way!!  My original due date was May 2nd, but when we just had our mid pregnancy ultrasound, they moved it up because she is measuring further along. This is totally fine by me! We are dying to meet her, so the sooner the better! 

{Gender} Sweet baby girl! 

{Name} I'm 99% sure we have finally decided on her name! We aren't ready to share just yet but I will tell you her first name starts with a "K".

{Baby's Size} According to my pregnancy app the baby is now the size of a Mango. At our ultrasound the other night they told us she weighs 12 ounces! 

{Am I Showing?} Um...yes! The bump really popped over the last couple weeks and is definitely here to stay.

{Sleep} Sleep has been rough! I am a back sleeper, so trying to sleep on my left side is a nightmare. I have to change sides often or my hips fall asleep and my back hurts. I also wake up at least 2 times to pee. Oh and the dreams, they're on another level! Crazy, vivid, and just beyond weird! But, I finally ordered a bumpnest  and it got here yesterday. I don't know why I waited so long to get one, because last night was the best sleep I've had in weeks! I actually felt rested when I woke up and not like I had slept on a bed of rocks. If you're pregnant, or not (Tyler loves it too) go get one now! It even came with a matching beanie for the baby.

{Cravings} Creamy guacamole, hot chocolate with whipped cream, lots of water, orange juice and Tyler's Grandma's cookies.

{Food Aversion} Brewed coffee, the smell of alcohol, bacon, anything spicy...this is only because of heartburn central that has been happening almost daily. It breaks my heart because normally I live off anything & everything spicy!! I've never had heartburn until this pregnancy. Spicy food really brings it on so I'm learning what to eat and what to give up for now. I also have a purse full of Tums :) According to all those wives' tales out there, it means she's going to have a full head of hair! 

{Feeling} All around I've been feeling great. Besides the normal pregnancy side effects, I have been feeling like my normal self and really enjoying this adventure. The fact that it's Christmas, my favorite time of the year, is making this experience that much better!

{Missing Anything} Sushi! Seared Ahi with a giant side of wasabi sounds like heaven.

{Best Moment Of The Week} Hands down the best moment was going to our mid pregnancy ultrasound and seeing our little peanut on screen for about 45 minutes. She was pretty camera shy and hiding, but it was still amazing! Since we did decide to find out the gender early I was relieved when they confirmed she is a girl, yay! Thank goodness or we would have been returning a lot of really cute outfits. I've never loved going to the doctors so much. We got see her little feet and hands. They were even able to count, she has all ten toes and ten fingers. My favorite part is always getting to hear her heartbeat. It's my favorite sound in the whole wide world :)

Happy Friday, loves! Thanks for stopping by.

XOXO, Kayla
