18 Weeks

Baby’s size: Sweet Potato

Baby’s movement: Oh my, so much movement! Especially when I eat breakfast in the morning, I think Jelly Belly is having a dance party, moving nonstop for the entire morning! I can now identify the baby’s movements, it’s unreal!

Total weight gain: 11 lbs!

Pregnancy symptoms: Not much except I have some hip pain on my left hip.

Food love: Korean sweet potatoes! And bagels again 😉

Food hate: Nothing in particular.

Sleep: Sleeping on my side is trucking along! I would flip over to my back in the middle of the night, but Steve ends up turning me to my side. Generally, sleep has been fine.

Currently living in: Still my regular wardrobe!

3 pros of this week: [1] Finally got my lazy butt off the couch and started working out again after one month hiatus. [2] Exploring possible new location for our family. [3] Playing with Steve’s coworker’s baby – practice! 😉

3 cons of this week: Not much this week!

Looking forward to: Checking out some new places this weekend!

May 19, 2015 – Jelly Belly @ 20 weeks anatomy scan.

Baby’s size: Banana

Baby’s movement: I swear Jelly Belly holds jam sessions all the time!

Pregnancy symptoms: Waking up to pee at night. Oh.My.Lord. It’s a problem. And, my girls, ta-tas are growing! I’m definitely not complaining, but I’m going to have to purchase new bras soon.

Food love: Nothing really new! But I really, I mean, REALLY crave drinking a cold beer. I think it’s the heat, but man..

Food hate: Nothing in particular.

Sleep: I woke up with pain in my abdomen area and realized it’s because I flipped over on my back.. It’s starting, I can’t sleep on my back anymore 😦

Currently living in: Still my regular wardrobe!

3 cons of this week: [1] Feeling so strapped for time! [2] Dentist appointment – I hate going to the dentist. [3] Not knowing what to wear for a wedding next weekend.

Looking forward to: Our Chicago visit next week!

21 Weeks

Baby’s size: Pomegranate

Baby’s movement: Jelly Belly loves sweets, goes crazy whenever I eat/drink anything sweet.

Total weight gain: 15-16 lbs! This mama is getting huge!

Pregnancy symptoms: Other than feeling some hip pains on my left hip and occasional round ligament pains, I’m feeling pretty great lately. Oh! I noticed the linea nigra (line that forms on your belly when pregnant) this week. It’s faint, but definitely there.

Food love: Nothing in particular.

Food hate: Nothing in particular.

Sleep: I’m averaging around 5-7 hrs of sleep per night.

Currently living in: Still my regular wardrobe!

3 pros of this week: [1] Being in Chicago and seeing my Chicago family and friends! [2] Jelly Belly finally meeting Chicago family and friends for the first time. [3] Steve feeling Jelly Belly for the first time this week! I was laying down on the bed, and Jelly Belly started moving, and I could see my belly move with the movements (my first time seeing my belly move), so I yelled for Steve immediately. He’s been patiently waiting to feel the baby, and Jelly Belly is now big enough for him to feel and see the movements! The look on his face was priceless! My sister also felt Jelly Belly move for the first time! She freaked out and didn’t know what to do, but it was the cutest thing!

3 cons of this week: [1] Not being able to see all of my friends in Chicago. [2] Feeling like a whale… [3] Not getting a good night sleep! 😦

Looking forward to: Our one year anniversary! Can’t believe it’s been a year already since we got married! ❤
