20 Weeks - halfway there!!!!

How far along: 20w or 5 months.
Total weight gain/loss: +9 pounds {I forgot to weigh myself this morning, so that's a guess}
How big is Baby: Baby is about the size of a cantaloupe, or 6.5 inches long. Next week, measurements change from crown to rump to head to toe.

Maternity Clothes: Definitely. I got a few things this weekend at Pea in a Pod with my gift card and I love them all. I even found a super cute maternity swimsuit for our Vegas trip.
Sleep: Sleep is okay. Still waking up several times a night to switch sides, and sometimes to pee.
Movement: Yes!! Lots of tapping. I am feeling him every day now and it's definitely baby and it's so super cool :)
Food cravings: Chicken. Cheeseburgers. Turkey & swiss sandwiches. Lemonade. Anything sweet.
Food aversions: Just raw meat.
Gender: It's a BOY!
Symptoms: Round Ligament Pain. Vivid dreams. Feeling dizzy & off balance. Peeing all.the.time. All around excitement and joy.
Best moment this week: Feeling baby boy moving for the first time - so amazing. Shopping with my Mom. She is so excited for her first grandchild and he is spoiled already :)
What I am looking forward to: Making more progress on the nursery. Our upcoming vacations.

Wow. 20 weeks. I never thought I would get pregnant, let alone make it to 20 weeks. It's just so crazy to think about. It makes all of the pain, despair, worry and injections worth it. I wouldn't want to go through what we did if I had a choice {obviously}, but I definitely don't regret it. The love I have for our baby boy already overwhelms me. We set up a G.mail account for him when we first found out IUI #4 worked. I was emailing him today and I signed it "Mom." That blew my mind. I am a Mom and Nick is a Dad. Crazy exciting stuff.



  1. YAY! I knew he would be moving soon enough!! It's SUCH an amazing feeling! SO glad you hit your half way point! It get's so fun now just thinking of meeting our little boys :) You will have to let us know a name when you know :)

  2. Half baked! I am so happy for you. I must say the worry didn't go away for me until I held her in my arms. Then you get a brand new set of worries. But, in the end all that worry (and injections) are so worth it. Congrats again! You look fantabulous!

  3. Megan this is such a great post! How exciting to be MOM and DAD! So happy for you!

  4. Happy 20 weeks, mom!! So exciting :) I wish you hadn't had to go through everything you did to get here,mbut I'm so glad all the hard work is paying off. Here's to an equally smooth ride for the next half of your pregnancy!

  5. Holy cow how are you 20 weeks already! Girl you look great!!! That feeling of not believing you are pregnant does not go away even after they are in your arms!!! Im still so dang happy for you guys!!!
