**********20 weeks**********


At 20 weeks Moyashi is now about the size of an cantaloupe and about 6 inches long (head to rump) and 10 inches head to toes (banana size). At last weeks ultrasound the baby "Girl" was weighing in at just over 11 ounces, so we know she's probably a tad bigger than these measurements. Everything is starting to work and digesting and making meconium, we all should know what that is. 
And we're now at the half way mark!! Wooohoooo! I need to pick-up on the getting ready for baby preperations. When do you officially start getting ready?

This past week: 


Vlog *coming soon*

Total weight gain: 5 lbs (stayed the same) - 190lbs
Maternity clothes? No buys this week... but OMG, I put on one of my favorite t-shirts and it was snug on the belly area. My bump is getting bigger and I can tell now. That is crazy, but exciting!
Stretch marks? Well, if you saw my Belly Shot video on YouTube, I have stretch marks, which I'm fine with, but no new ones. I have been itchy all over, but especially in my pooch area. I had been scratching so much that I was getting little cuts all over my belly, but they have gone down, so I haven't been scratching that much. That lotion has been helping. 
Skin & Hair: My hair isn't as itchy as it use to be. But I'm still dry. I've still been using conditioner almost every night and it seems to be helping. No pimples, thank God, but lets not get our hopes up. 
Best moment this week: Easter Sunday! Got to spend some quality time with my family and we found out the gender of our baby.... It's a Girl!! You can watch the announcement on my YouTube Channel. I didn't get to film it like I wanted to (grrrrr), but it was fun!

Food cravings:
I'm still craving some really good fresh fish! This week I still wanted more watermelon, I bought 3 wedges of watermelon this week.... (O.O)

Anything making you queasy or sick:
I had a bit of chocolates the other day and YUCK! I guess I still have a bit of Dysgeusia, I can't eat too much carbs or chocolate because afterwards it leaves me a horrible aftertaste!!!

Gender: **IT'S A GIRL**


Labor signs:
Still getting occasional tightening, braxton hicks if ya wanna call them that.
 
Symptoms:
I've only gotten two headaches this week, I'm guessing the Crystal Light is helping (friend said it has a tad bit of caffeine and helps reduce headaches). Sleepless nights, every other night. Wednesday, Saturday & Monday I couldn't sleep. I had probably about 6-8 hours when I usually get at least 8 hours of sleep. The other nights I slept like a baby. Easter Sunday I wore wedges and stood for long periods so that night I had some leg swelling.

Belly button in or out?
In and puffy still.

Can you see your toes? Yes, but if I stand straight up and look down, NO!

Happy or moody most of the time:
Happy! Hubs says I've been more happy in this pregnancy than in my other two. Don't know if that's good or bad. 
Looking forward to: Next week is Real Diaper Week, so I'm excited to get all this info out to ya'll. Check what it's all about HERE. Also, relaxing with just my hubby this weekend!

What made me cry this week: During our family Easter gathering my aunt showed me pictures of her new grandson, which I have yet to meet, and I just balled like a baby. I was so happy, excited and I missed them so much. It took me like 20 minutes to recover. Would you have cried to? I haven't seen my cousin in over 2 years!

Medical Stuff: Ultrasound went great. Baby girl is growing and bigger than I thought. She was moving her arms a lot. I had some insurance problems and had to switch my plan so I have to get a new referral to another diabetes specialist. So I might not see one until a month or so. Just got to stay on top of my sugars.

Thoughts from the family: Eli, our 3 year old is just super excited. Don't know if she knows what's going to come out, but she just loves to rub and kiss mommy's belly. Our 7 year old asked about belly buttons, so I explained what it actually was, she was intrigued and happy she learned how the baby is "connected" to Mommy! Hubs & I are nervous about another girl and my grandma Nancy was mad that we're having another girl. Oh well...

Miss anything? No other news for now...
