Woah We're Halfway There!

WOOOAH livin' on a prayer! 

I love that song. Anyway, moving on! Today I am 20 weeks along or in other words HALFWAY! It's exciting to be halfway and it feels like it went by fast even though we've known for most of the time. I'm sure the second half won't go by quite as fast. Haha. Oh well though!

I thought for the halfway point I'd do one of those nifty pregnancy questionnaire things so I can remember what pregnancy has been like. So here goes! 

How far along? 20 weeks! Halfway! 

Total weight gain/loss: I think about five pounds gained after somewhere between 10 and 15 pounds lost in the first trimester. 

Maternity clothes? One pair of jeans that I have worn twice. They kept slipping down though which I was not a big fan of so I might wait til I'm a little bit bigger before I wear them again. And maternity shirts heck yeah! I have a few that I wore even before I was pregnant. They're just cute shirts! 

Stretch marks? Not yet. My mom got them with her pregnancies though so I'm sure I will eventually. I don't plan on buying expensive creams so Race will have to deal with them and I'll do my part to not gain massive amounts of weight all at once. I read that that is how you help to avoid I guess we'll see! {They're supposedly somewhat genetic though so I may not be able to avoid them...}

Sleep: I still usually sleep through the night. Ocassionally I have to get up to pee but that's about it. Some nights I have a hard time falling asleep because of some back pain but that has only happened a couple of times. 

Best moment this week: Well it will probably be tomorrow when we find out the gender but before that the best moment was one night I was about to fall asleep when Little Goose started kicking up a storm! So I grabbed Race's hand and he got to feel. That was a fun way to be jolted awake! 

Movement: Yes! See question above! :] I love feeling my little one move! If you're around when LG moves I will probably announce every time I feel it! 

Food cravings: Still raspberries. But also, Cheetos. Mmm! :] 

Anything making you queasy or sick: I'm over most of that but if I don't eat fast enough in the morning I feel queasy/sick. Also, I used to LOVE Capt'n Crunch for breakfast but lately it just makes me kinda sick to think about eating it in the morning. I have been leaning more towards warm breakfast foods. 

Have you started to show yet: Heck yes! Although I can still hide it in lose shirts. And sometimes I still feel like I just look a little chunkier than normal. But I LOVE having 'le bump' to show off! 

Gender prediction: We find out tomorrow! I can't wait! Any guesses?!

Belly Button in or out? In--I hope it stays that way. But I guess only time will tell! 

Wedding rings on or off? On so far. Usually a little looser than normal as well. I hope my fingers don't swell too much--I like my wedding ring! 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Not sure how to answer this one. Haha. SUPER happy to be having a baby but definitely moody when I am tired or don't feel too good. I don't feel like I'm that much moodier than before I was pregnant though. I am just a person who needs to be well rested. 

Weekly Wisdom: SLEEP whenever you can! Also, dress cute before you're too big to want to wear anything other than sweats. I'm sure I'll get to that point so I'm trying to dress cute now! 

Milestones: Mostly just feeling LG move so often! I love it! I have noticed that we have a night owl for a baby! He/she kicks LOTS at night. That might just be when I notice it most though...who knows! 

Well, I'll leave you with some bump pics! But yay for being halfway there! I am loving pregnancy right now and really looking forward to meeting our adorable Little Goose! Come back sometime this weekend for the GENDER REVEAL! And make your guesses below!

19 weeks 6 days!
My perspective of 'le bump' 


  1. My guess is... A BOY.

    I can't wait to find out!!

  2. How exciting! at least you can still see your feet right?!

  3. My guess is a boy too. I don't know why, but it's a 50/50 chance, ha!

    Oh and I am LOVING Cap'n Crunch and other cereals. Warm breakfast foods make ME cringe! Ha I'm all about the coldies.

  4. I love that you wore maternity shirts even before you were pregnant...they are definitely so cute! and i don't want to have to take off my wedding ring when the time comes, either! and i totally understand about the need to be well rested thing! i am the same way.

  5. I can't wait to hear the gender! So exciting!

  6. I CANNOT wait to find out the gender!!!! So exciting oh my gosh!

    I love Cap'n Crunch...hopefully you can eat it again soon without feeling sick hun!! ;)

  7. Good for you for losing weight! Thanks so much for your sweet comment and support. You're the best :)

  8. I am guessing it's a boy! You are a doll! I am sooo excited for you to find out the gender! I'll be checking back!

  9. I hope a girl so we can see the cute stuff you dress her in :) All these bloggers getting pregnant makes me excited for when that feels right for us.

    I always thing maternity stores are so cute and am about to go into them...until Devin is like "hey, are you telling me something I don't know?" haha.

    I still have the journal I wrote from when I was five. I'm a journaler, but I write it in private entries on my blog.

  10. I'm saying that you and this kid are awesome because y'all are craving cheetos. I crave those constantly. {I'm not preggo, fyi *wink*}

    Thank you for all of your sweet words on my blog as of late! I've missed you tons and tons.
