20 Weeks: Halfway Through!

I've officially reached the midpoint of the pregnancy.  How crazy is that?!  I will also find out next week what our little bambino's gender is!  I'm very excited about that.

Can you tell I'm a little tired in this pic?  We had just finished packing (by the way, we've been out of town all week down in Costa Rica!) when I remembered that I needed my hubby to take a pic for this post.  He was tired and grumpy and agreed to take one picture.  So, this is what I got, crazy hair and all, haha.  Oh well.  I should have a better pic for next week because hopefully it will be on a beach in Costa Rica! :)

I had a doctor appointment last week and everything was on target.  The baby's heartbeat was about 140 beats per minute.  If you believe that old wives' tale, then that would indicate a boy.  I know many friends where this was not true though!  In the spirit of full disclosure, I gained 10 pounds in the month and a half since my last appointment. :-/  Everything else looked good, but the doctor said I have to be careful that I don't keep gaining weight at that rate.  I have had a bigger appetite than usual lately (sometime days I feel like I'm always hungry), so I'll just have to be more mindful of that and continue to be consistent with my workouts.  I'm not really too worried about it.

I've had a few people tell me that I look small for 20 weeks, which is nice to hear, but I sure feel huge!  The doctor said my belly is measuring right where it should though.

  1. How exciting! I don't think you look tired at all! I think you look wonderful! I can't wait to hear if it's a boy or girl! You are totally right about the heartbeat, as going by that is not always accurate as my heartbeat was a boys too!


  2. This is so exciting! Glad everything is still going well. I also can't wait to hear if it's a boy or a girl :)

    1. Thanks Justine! It's fun sharing the adventure. :)

  3. I think you look tiny for 20 weeks! 10 pounds sounds like a lot but you're supposed to put on weight during pregnancy! Maybe you just went through a quick growth spurt and it'll slow down from here lol. You really look gorgeous though!
