20 Week Survey

How Far Along? 20 weeks - officially 5 months pregnant (YAY!!!)

Maternity Clothes? Oh yeah. I went shopping last weekend and got a bunch of new tops and a couple of new pairs of capris. I held out as long as I could but I was getting down to a very limited wardrobe.

Stretch Marks? Some, but not bad yet. I think they are from before.

Sleep? I do pretty good at night, minus bathroom breaks and a lot of readjusting. Most nights I get about 8 hours total. I take a nap if I need it but mostly I rest during the day when I am tired.

Best Moment of the Week? Seeing my belly vibrate/bounce (don't know the right word) when the babies kick. Getting their nursery bedding and decor and finishing planning their nursery. Registering. Going through all the baby stuff. Lots of fun this week. ;)

Genders? Baby A is a boy - Nathan Reid - and Baby B is a girl - Alexis Faith. I am really excited about having one of each. I think it will be fun for Luke to have a brother and a sister. I also hope they won't be compared as much since they will most likely have a lot of differences.

Belly Button In or Out? In still but definitely trying to come out.

Cravings? Chicken Fajita Pitas - went to Pita Delite and bought the sauce and have been making my own. YUMMY! I also love water, apples, peaches, chips/salty snacks, pizza, and hearty meals.

What I Miss? Being able to go go go and not be exhausted or worn out. I can't do as much which is hard for me. I am embracing it though. This is a special time and growing two healthy babies is my #1 priority right now.

What I Love? Growing two miracles. Feeling them move. Not having to feel guilty for not doing everything like I normally would. Oh and eating, of course. ;)

What I Am Looking Forward to This Week? Non-baby - family cookout tonight, date night tomorrow night, and spending time with my boys. Baby - growing the babies, feeling them move all the time, and going through more baby clothes.

Milestones? 20 weeks (a new decade) and 5 months (a new month). Seeing my belly move when the babies kick. People being able to feel both consistently on the outside.

Feeling the Babies Move? Yes, all the time. They are wild. You can feel them on the outside a lot now too. My belly vibrates/bounces with their kicks.

Other Thoughts? I am just really thankful for family and friends and generosity. We have been overly blessed with baby stuff. I was amazed when we went to register and only needed a few things. It's really nice to not feel financially overwhelmed since we needed 2 of almost everything. I'll never forget the generosity we have experienced. God always provides.

Prayer Requests? Continued prayer for a healthy and safe pregnancy, no bedrest, full-term delivery, and great adjustment to having 3 kids. We are really thankful for all the prayers. :)
