Baby Barrett, 20 Weeks

I couldn't decide on a photo for this week.  So here are all three.  Cabella, our yellow lab decided she needed to be in the photo this week too =)

How Far Along: 20 Weeks

Size of the baby: Baby Barrett is now the size of a small cantaloupe, approx..6.5 inches long &approx 10oz.

Total Weight Gain/loss: I have gained 6lbs and as you can see from the picture there is definitely a little bump there now =)  It is growing everyday.  I swear when I wake up the morning it has grown overnight.

Maternity Clothes:  I can still wear some of my longer shirts, but all of my pants are now maternity or stretchy yoga pants.  I am still totally in LOVE with leggings and sweaters.  I start back to work on Monday so I will be stretching my wardrobe to make sure I can still look professional.  I found the most adorable maternity pencil skirt yesterday at the mall which I am very excited about!

Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby Barrett arrives in May! It's amazing the flack we have been receiving about this but I know what I want so I am just letting it go =)

Movement: Definitely have been feeling movement.  Especially at night, I think we may have a night owl on our hands.  It is the craziest and most amazing feeling in the world.  Last night was my nieces 4th birthday and the baby was moving all around with the sound of the other little kiddos ringing through the house.

Sleep: Sleeping okay.  I am really not normally a side sleeper.  I have always slept on my stomach so I am still trying hard to get used to my new sleeping position.

What I miss: Not having smells literally have me running for the bathroom.

Cravings: Ummm... soy!  I am loving soy lattes, decaf of course.  I bought soy milk today at the store so I am hoping that I can use it as a creamer in my coffee and it will be almost as good (we don't have a coffee shop in our little town).

Symptoms: Really no new symptoms this week.  I have been able to keep the heartburn under control with TUMS as needed.  A friend recently introduced me to the smoothie flavored TUMS and they are much better than the traditional chalky version.  

Best moment this week: Getting the see Baby Barrett again at our 20 week ultrasound.  It is so incredible to watch our little peanut move around on the big screen.  And we got some gorgeous keepsake photos!  It was also really special to be able to share this moment with both of our moms (the grandmas to be). 

Our little one's feet, crossed at the ankles =)

How fun! I love the little feet..that's my favorite sono of our little one too! Your looking very cute. I have to say enjoy it all because it goes so fast...I can't believe it. I'm happy your pregnancy is going so smoothly I think that makes a difference. Mine was wonderful! Enjoy going back to work....and I too had about 6 outfits I kept on rotation for school. Ha ha.
