20 Weeks!! 5 Months, 1/2 way there!! :)

2o WEEKS!!! 1/2 WAY THERE!! 5 MONTHS! :)
crazy huh!!
May 15-22

from thebump.com:  
Congrats! You're halfway there...and at one of the great milestones of pregnancy. Increased blood flow is making the pelvic area extra-sensitive, libido is resurging, and the weight gain has just barely begun.

woah-- that thing is big! :)

Here is what we have been up to this week:

Weight Gain:  Now that I am consistently eating like "normal" again I think I am at least back up to my pre-pregnancy weight... official results tomorrow after our doc apt

Maternity Clothes : yes, and i really like how comfie they are... still need mooore tho as I am finally "popping" ha

Sleep: its going great- only one bathroom break in the middle of the night around 3am.  I'll take that!

Best Moment of this week:  we had another 3D/4D ultrasound and saw that "she" is for sure a GIRL! :)

Movement: still nothing that i can feel...
Food cravings:  sweets, and really anything. icecream with milk and choco syrup still a fav!

What I miss: nothing :)
Symptoms: well hello heartburn!! It has def. set in-- some foods are worse than others.  Also my tummy has been getting much tighter over the past 3 or 4 weeks... as in it is hard when you touch it.  My abdomen has def. been more sensitive too. I don't really like anything touching it-- it almost feels a little sore... if if bend back or to the sides it feels like i am stretching the muscles in there

Gender: pretty little girl! <3

What I'm looking forward to: we have the anatomy scan tomorrow followed by a doctor appointment.  I am excited to see how she is measuring!
 Baby bump: 

 whatcha think? growing much?

The Baby in Week 20: 
Curious about whether that melon-sized belly contains a boy or a girl? Now's your chance to take a peek! Your second trimester ultrasound, scheduled for anytime between 18 and 22 weeks, gives your practitioner a chance to see how things are going in there. And, wow, are they going! If you're having a girl, her uterus is now fully formed and her ovaries are holding about seven million primitive eggs. If you're having a boy, his testicles have begun their descent from the abdomen to their ultimate destination — the scrotum. And while your baby is definitely getting bigger (weighing in at about ten ounces and measuring six and a half inches), there's still plenty of growing room in there, which allows him to twist and turn (and allows you to feel his acrobatics!).

Your Body in Week 20:
Now that you’re at the midpoint of your pregnancy (20 weeks down, 20 more to go!), that little cantaloupe (aka baby) you have in your belly is becoming more of a reality as you feel his movements and draw smiles from passersby who see your baby bump. You might also be noticing that your nails are stronger (though they could also turn dry and brittle) and your hair (all over your body) is thicker and fuller than usual — all thanks to pregnancy hormones and increased circulation, which furnish extra nutrients to hair and nail cells. But while the hair on your head may be lovelier than ever, you might not be digging those sprouts on your chin. This situation is indeed temporary, but feel free to tweeze!
