Since I waited to announce, I didn’t publish last month’s bumpdate at the time but I did write it and take pictures. I know Baby #2 often gets the short end so I figure I’ll try starting off on an even level. We’re at the halfway mark and we know he’s a BOY (the cutest picture yet is below). I feel huge and am bracing for REAL hugeness but generally I’m feeling pretty decent. Here’s month 5:
How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Idk exactly but I’m sure plenty which sucks because I can’t even enjoy eating.
Maternity clothes? Yes, but mostly because I love maternity jeans.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: It’s okay although I have to get up for bathroom breaks and sometimes have a hard time falling asleep again.
Best moment to date: Lucas talking about Sam. He talks about him being in my belly and that they’re going to play pirates. He’s a good big brother already.
Miss Anything? Energy, food and given the stress of the world – wine.
Movement: Yup, although like with Lucas I think I’ve depressed him because he was moving a lot more before the anatomy scan.
Food cravings: Very specific things each day
Anything making you queasy or sick: Living – nausea is better but still there.
Have you started to show yet: Yes but I can still hide it if I wanted.
Gender: He’s a Sam Anders
Looking forward to: Danny and Lucas being able to feel him move.
So excited to see them together in March!
