Baby R: 20 weeks & It's A....

I was really hoping to post a weekly update as my pregnancy progresses, but as you can see, that clearly has not happened! A lot has happened in the past couple months- most notably, we bought a house and found out what Baby R is! I'll save the best for last though. ;)

Moving was not as bad as I was expecting. When we came back to CA from TX, we moved into a MUCH smaller apartment, so we downsized a ton. Less to pack and organize! I can breathe a huge sigh of relief now that we have a home for the baby. 

Home ownership has been an adventure. We're finding out that the little handyman tasks are not as easy as they may appear. For example, putting up that wire shelving was not as easy as we thought, but we did it! 

How far along? 20 weeks- the half way point! (*I'm playing catch up, so I'm actually 22 weeks).

Maternity clothes? Definitely in maternity tops, though some pre-pregnancy t-shirts will still work. I have maternity jeans, but I've been loving maxi skirts lately.

Sleep: I get a lot every night, but it takes me a while to get comfortable. I miss stomach sleeping.

Best moment this week: Making a delicious fruit tart. I can't decide if it's a good or bad thing that I know I can make these at home. 

Movement: Everyday! Baby tends to move more when I'm laying down. 

Food cravings: Sweets! I never had much of a sweet tooth, but this baby loves it! I try to stick to fruits, but I did cave and get some chocolate covered gummy bears. Mmm...

Anything making you queasy or sick? Thankfully the morning sickness seems to have passed, but I do get queasy if I eat too much. 
Have you started to show yet: yup!

Belly Button in or out? In and I think it may stay that way for awhile. I have a deep belly button.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy.

What I miss: sleeping on my stomach. 

What I'm looking forward to: getting baby's room ready!

And of course, what you're really wondering...

We're so excited to meet this little guy!


  1. Congrats on the new house and finding out you will be having a son!
    Can't wait to see how you decorate the nursery!

    1. Thank you! I'm sure there will be lots of pictures to share!

  2. Sleeping on my stomach...YES...I'm missing that too! Congrats on the new place! Such exciting times! :)
