The size of a pomegranate
Some of these fruit comparisons are confusing.
Another reference compared Ellie's size to the length of a carrot.
Gained This Week: 2 lbs
Total Weight Gain: 17 lbs
Ellie is constantly moving throughout the day, but is most active after I eat.
Brandon was able to feel Ellie kick again on Thursday (20w5d) evening. He had been discouraged because he had not felt her kick since I was 19 weeks. He sat down with me after we finished dinner and waited for her to become active. Within a matter of minutes he was able to feel her kick at least three times, although I felt many more than that!
Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies
Chicken Fingers and French Fries is one of my favorite meals.
Oreos and Milk at bedtime
Randal says I've become a "Carb Queen"
I love sleep! If I could, I would nap every day. My bedtime is somewhere around 8:30 - 9 pm each evening and I have no trouble falling fast asleep. I'm not getting up in the middle of the night anymore to potty since I've been limiting my fluids before bedtime.
What do I miss:
Feeling Ellie move more and Brandon getting to feel her kicks again.
Worst moment of the week:
Being told that I look farther along than I am, and that I look like I'm carrying twins. So many other people have encouraged me and told me that I look great. I'm lucky to have so many inspirational and motivational people supporting us through this pregnancy to compensate for all of the "jackholes."
My birthday is TOMORROW and our next appointment is on January 22.
Each week is a milestone for us. Looking down at my growing belly is a constant reminder of God's faithfulness. Brandon and I have come so far and are so excited that our pregnancy has remained uneventful.
Ellie "tastes swallows amniotic fluid each day, so she tastes whatever I'm eating" (How cool is that?)
