Bump day week 20

Half way there!!! Though I’m 2o weeks, I feel like this pregnancy has been very slow compared to the boys’. Watch, I’ll start saying “its just flown by” here in about ten more weeks. Really though, I can not wait for her to get here. With the boys pregnancies, I relished every moment of it and I didn’t want it to be over yet. Don’t get me wrong, I am enjoying pregnancy this time as well, but I also kinda can’t wait for my due date. I think a lot of it has to do with my symptoms. I felt that pregnancy glow with the boys and I just don’t feel glamorous at all this time. I have pimples and red blotches on my face – and I’ve never had bad skin. My hair feels like straw and looks like it too. My bump is higher this time too which isn’t as flattering, I don’t think, which makes me more self conscious. Its all good though, she’s worth it. Symptoms this week have been hovering around the same. Heartburn, insomnia, cravings and aversions, sciatica, pregnancy brain, stuffy nose – just to name a few. Baby girl is really on the move, still very down low. My bump is really filling out and getting firm everywhere now, not just below my belly button – which is popping by the way. We have a mini pre-baby family getaway planned for the beginning of March. Its more just a weekend away in a hotel, nothing extravagant. I plan to do some shopping for little miss while we are gone too, which is going to be so much fun. Just going out for one last adventure before we get tied down with a newborn, I feel, is important. We have done it before each kiddo’s arrival and its always fun to get out of the house. I don’t think any of us can hardly wait for her to be here. She is so loved already.
