The Bun is Half-Baked!

How far along? 20 weeks today! I can't believe this pregnancy is half way done! I am getting more and more excited every day to meet our little one!
Total weight gain: 16 lbs - it seems like so much whenever I look at the scale! Unfortunately, besides my belly, the main place I can see weight gain is on my love handles - yuck! As long as the doc is ok with it, I know I shouldn't be concerned!
How big is baby? The length of a banana - about 10 inches. At the U/S on Sunday, she weighed 11 oz, which is a little above average. She also measured a few days ahead.
Maternity clothes: I would say about 85% maternity clothes now. I have received some clothes on loan from a couple of friends - it's nice not to have to purchase a whole wardrobe!
Stretch marks: Still keeping my fingers crossed - not yet!
Sleep: I haven't been sleeping as soundly, I think that when I roll over it wakes me up. I am still considering getting a pregnancy pillow to help me lay still
Movement: This girl moves all the time! I feel movement probably almost every hour and kick several times a day
Food cravings: Still loving fruit.
Food aversions: Meat
Belly button: It is getting more shallow and wide
What I'm looking forward to: Holding her in my arms
Weekly Wisdom: Tell your baby you love him/her everyday!
Weekly joy: On Sunday we found out that baby is a girl, and we named her Felicity Diane. Telling my parents was amazing - they both got a little teary...so I did, too!

Belly shot will come tonight!

I tried to reply to your comment but I don't know if it went to you in an email or not. Shoot me an email with some bedding that you kinda like (domesticprncs@gmail.com). Are you thinking super girlie or just girlie or trying to stay more neutral?

You look adorable. We have 4 kiddos and I've been pregnant 6 times --sooo remember all those feelings. I am a crazy girl who LOVES labor and delivery.

I came over to follow you also. I look forward to getting to know you better.
