Today marks the halfway point! I am officially 20 weeks pregnant! That means in just 20 (or less) weeks, Baby G will be here. So exciting yet so hard to believe. It seems like it was just yesterday I was finding out I was pregnant. Time flies!
Baby G's size: About the length of a banana. He weighs about 10 1/2 ounces.
My size: As of today I've gained about 5 pounds. My stomach is definitely growing by the day. I'm trying really hard to exercise to keep myself and Baby G healthy. This week I attempted kickboxing for the first time since I've been pregnant. Although I had to bump it down a few notches, it was a great workout and I'm going to try to start going weekly!
Most excited thing: Finding out Baby G was a boy was most definitely the most exciting part of the pregnancy thus far. It was kind of like the first "due date". I feel such a connection to this little guy and am so happy with our decision to find out (no matter what other people's opinions are). I also feel this little boy kick all day. This week I felt him kick while I was standing up for the first time. Before this week I could only feel him move when I was sitting still or laying down. Such an awesome feeling! :)
Most annoying thing: My back has started hurting big time this week. I've heard lots of times that since I am pretty small, I would probably struggle with lower back pain pretty early on in my pregnancy. If my back hurts now..I can't imagine what it will feel like with a 5 lb. baby in my stomach!
Cravings: I haven't had any craving recently other than Coke. Weird, since I didn't drink Coke before my pregnancy. Not sure what that's all about!
Sickness: Still feeling good in the sickness category. My energy left me again this week but I think that had more to do with being back at school after 2 weeks off. It was a rough week!
Next appointment: November 17 is my next appointment!
I'm so thankful to God for putting this baby inside of me. Each week when I receive me weekly pregnancy update e-mail I am amazed at all of the tiny details that are forming on and in Baby G. I am also amazed at all of the actions he is doing, his movements, kicks, and motions. I know that God is the reason these things are happening. He is the one that decided to bless us with a baby boy. He is our little guy's creator and protector and for that I am SO grateful!
