I’m halfway there! I can’t believe I just finished my 20th week of pregnancy. It’s crazy how quickly time is flying by!
Egg sandwiches (ALL THE TIME – seriously, it’s ridiculous), smoothies, green juice, fresh fruit (I’ve been into apples lately), yogurt with granola, ketchup on everything.
Same as before, but no new ones!
Frequent urination: Not exaggerating, I’m probably peeing 20 times per day/night. I’m drinking a lot of water, but my bladder is so sensitive now. Everything makes me need to pee!
Morning sickness: I still feel sick at night, starting around 7:30/8:00 PM and getting worse until I go to bed. I’m starting to think I’m stuck with this symptom for my entire pregnancy, but I feel mostly fine during the day, so it definitely could be worse! Anyone else sick for their entire pregnancy?
Restless sleep: I pretty much wake up every couple of hours all night long. I usually just fall right back to asleep, but it’s still kind of annoying. A lot of the time, I need to pee, but other times I just wake up. I’m not really uncomfortable or anything like that”¦ I just wake up a lot. Maybe my body is getting ready for frequent feedings when Baby Haupert is here?
Weight gain: 24 pounds! I’m still ahead of the normal weight gain, but things have slowed down quite a bit. Speaking of weight gain, I finally caved in and bought some maternity clothes, which was the BEST decision ever! Seriously, why did I wait so long?!
Old Navy for the win!
I am still trucking along with mostly unmodified CrossFit workouts, but I might stop doing Burpees this week since they’re starting to feel a little weird (and they totally smoke my arms now that I do them so slowly). I think Squat Thrusts might be more my style now!
And the most exciting news of the past two weeks: Feeling Baby Haupert kick!
Well, it’s not full on kicking, but more of a “fluttering” feeling that a lot of moms talk about. It feels like you have a little bit of gas or some butterflies in your stomach or even a brief muscle spasm inside your belly. I actually felt it a few times in week 19, but I wasn’t really sure if it was the baby moving or not. But, last week, it was happening a lot more often, so I’m pretty sure that’s what I’m feeling. He moves a little bit during the day and a whole lot at night right before bed. Mal even got to feel one of his kicks last week. Mal was equally excited/happy and weirded out at the same time. It’s sooo sci-fi! Haha!
That’s all for now. We have another ultrasound and doctor’s appointment at the beginning of next week, so I will have another blog update soon!
