Bumpdate: 20 weeks

Sorry for the quality of this picture! I was rushing out the door to my doctor's appointment!

How far along: 20 weeks today 

Due Date: March 22, 2018

Baby is the size of: Banana {Approx 10.1oz & 6.5in long}

Gender: Little Boy! (We call him "Buttons," "Bubs," & "Little dude.")

Name: We have thrown around so many names. Researched the heck out of our family trees. We keep coming back to 2 in particular...and just like I said on the last update, I THINK we have one...we just haven't agreed. This still could change. 

Symptoms: I feel really great. Minus the round ligament pain, everything is good. I am working out 2 days a week. Getting winded so easy isn't fun, but I am glad to know I can keep up for the most part. And unless otherwise directed by my doctor, I will continue to work out as long as I can.

Movement: YES! I felt him at 18 weeks & 2 days. It was SUPER faint, but DEFINITELY not gas. It has only gotten stronger. And it's still the wierdest/coolest thing.

Cravings/Aversions: Sour! Brian found these Haribo Halloween Bats that were sour....SO GOOD. So he bought me two more bags. Add Reese's peanut butter cups to the list too. Also, give me all the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Brian, if you're reading this, get over it! HA! He fussed at me & told me that stuff was crap & that I needed to buy the Annie's brand (organic). Oops! Also, I feel like eating 24/7. Aversions: I don't particularly care for just meat -- particularly red meat. EW! If it's mixed in (for example: tacos, soups, etc) & not the main dish, I'm good. 

Missing anything: Wine, sushi, & feta cheese. I love Greek food so not having feta is killing me.

Maternity Clothes: Nothing right now. Jeans are still fitting albeit a little more snug. 

Nursery: We are probably just going to hold off for now since we will be having so many visitors after the new year. Baby will be in the bassinet in our room anyhow.

Brian's Thoughts: He is super excited. He is a little jealous he can't feel baby yet. Asks lots of questions & likes to read up on our weekly updates from the Bump app.

Looking forward to: Cooler weather...still. It has gotten cool, but we are still having some 80 degree days. Also, looking forward to more movement from little dude. And of course, the HOLIDAYS!
