Week 20 Update: Baby M’s BIG Reveal

Week 20!
I am halfway through this pregnancy!
I really can’t believe it but I am thrilled about it.

Here is my 20 week picture.
I have quite the bump now and obviously still growing.

Of course this week, we got to see our sweet Baby M again!
AND perhaps found out the gender.

Here are some new ultrasound pictures.
Cute profile with mouth open a little.

Hand up over eyes and forehead.

So do you want to know if Baby M is a boy or a girl?
Well… do ya?!
I guess I’ll tell ya! 😉

Baby M is a……

GIRL!!!! 🙂
I used this picture to announce the gender on FB.
I put it as my profile picture instead of saying the gender in my status so people had to pay attention! 😉

And you guys are good!
Girl got the most votes in the poll.

After we got home from our ultrasound, we had a mini gender reveal party for our families over webcam (yeah for Google Hangouts!).

I made some decorations and props to reveal the gender.
Here we are holding our little”girl” bee props to show we are having a girl.
I will be back this week with a post all about what I made and to explain more about the gender reveal.

I just had to get a belly picture with the ultrasound pic of our baby girl and the pink bee.

Now, onto the facts of the week:

How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain: I have finally gained some weight back after being so sick in the beginning but I actually am about 1 or 2 lbs. less than my pre pregnancy weight still.
Maternity clothes? Still in my normal clothes besides the few shirts I got for Christmas that are maternity. Not sure when I will have to venture into maternity pants.
Stretch marks? nope 🙂
Sleep: Man… sleep? Do people need sleep? Apparently this week I did not because I have only slept well for 2 nights. BLAH!
Best moment this week: Finding out the gender of course!! And now being able to call Baby M by her name.
Miss Anything? hmmmm…. do I miss anything this week? I’m sure I do but can’t think of something right now.
Movement: YES!! After talking to my doctor, she was positive the feelings that I have been having for weeks now has been the baby but Friday night after the ultrasound, Baby M was moving non stop!
Food cravings: Cookie dough, Watermelon Cream Slush from Sonic
Anything making you queasy or sick: not really
Gender: GIRL!!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Still my killer lower back pain and also killer hip pain
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time but was have had some bitchy moments from not sleeping
Looking forward to: Finishing up the nursery walls. Board and batten is up on the wall, just needs the final coat(s) of paint.
