Bump day week 20!

We made it to the half way point!  Only 140 days to go! If you missed my last post with the gender reveal, go read it so I don’t spoil it for you! Baby brother is the length of a banana this week and at the ultrasound, weighed in at 11.59 ounces! He is perfect in every way and I feel so blessed that he is healthy. I also found out that I have an anterior placenta (its not a problem). I had a feeling that I did because I haven’t felt strong movements from the outside very much and they are usually very low when I do feel them. I can feel him like crazy all over the place inside though. So that is kind of sad that I will have to get a lot bigger before we will be able to see and feel him all the time. Sylas had a fundal placenta and I felt him so much at this point with my hand on my belly. We are both so happy and I am so excited to see how Sylas bonds with his brother!

In other news, I have been having more frequent Braxton Hicks lately. It varies with the amount of activity that I do but I notice them more often. I still crave fruit and all of a sudden I really want ice cream (I don’t normally enjoy ice cream, I have to be in the mood for it). My appetite is also going up. This morning I weighed in at 120.8lbs and even though lots of articles say that you should gain ten pounds by now, I feel this is a great weight for me to be at, especially because I was a little heavier than I would have liked to be pre-pregnancy.

We have already started re-arranging the rooms around so that Sylas and baby brother will share a room and have a play room too. I will get a post up today or tomorrow with before pictures of Sylas’ room and once we get things switched around, I will do an update post to show you how it ended up!
