I seriously can't believe I just posted those pictures. And yes my friend and I stealthily took these pictures in our department's kitchen at work. I would have been so embarrassed if we had gotten caught. So enjoy this little pic while you can because I am not sure if there will be any more anytime soon.

How far along? 20 weeks and 4 days. I love my phone app because it counts down the days and as of Monday I technically have less days to go that I have already done. (umm does that make sense?) Anyway the baby is supposedly the size of a banana and almost a full pound.

Total weight gain/loss? I am in between 6-7 lbs gained. If my weight gain stays this steady(i.e. slow) I hope to be right on target for the 25lb goal that my doctor said I should gain. We will see. I mean the holidays are tricky for everyone and I could eat an elephant every hour pretty much.

Maternity clothes? Still loving my maternity clothes. Having the itch to buy some more already. I plan on doing a post about some of the websites I found that have cute but affordable maternity stuff you can buy.

Stretch marks? None. But a friend suggested some bio oil this week for the tightness my belly is having.

Sleep? Still waking up a bunch to go to the bathroom. Some nights I sleep like a rock and then last night I was up at 4 watching my tivoed Glee episode again because I couldn't sleep. Oh well. Right now I have so much of the second trimester energy that I feel fine.

Best moment last week? Kenny got to feel the baby kick!! It was so exciting. She was just kicking away and he felt it a lot! Other best moments were getting the crib put together and getting so much of the nursery layed out. Can't wait to get movin on some of the other stuff!

Movement? Lots and lots and lots of movement. I have even seen the kicks outside of my belly. She is still sitting on my bladder 90% of the time but she must be right in the front to. Because now that I know what she feels like I am pretty positive I have been feeling movement since around week 15.

Food cravings? Umm, all food sounds good to me right now. Talk about it and I want it. But really my only cravings are Orange drinks like Powerade and Gatorade and today I am craving citrus fruit too. Think I am going to go get some clementines at lunch.

Gender: It's a girl! And everyone has started using her name when referring to her. That part is kind of weird.

Labor signs? No. I wouldn't know if I was. Ha!

Belly button in/out? In but its getting pretty shallow. A little worried about this??

What I miss: Still with the alcohol. While moving this weekend my mom and I had a little problem with the guy at the U-Haul place. And I eventually cried from frustration and I really really wanted some wine and I crave tequila. Oh well! Margarita's will still be there after the baby arrives.

What I am looking forward to: I have lots to look forward to. All the custom fabric I ordered ships in the next couple days and then the seamstress can start working on creating the stuff for the nursery. And I have a cart full at stuff for the nursery at Amazon that I am just itching to purchase. And then of course I just look forward to Elle getting bigger and healthier!

Non-Baby Related News: I am having my first ever garage sale this Saturday with some friends. It is their first ever garage sale too. I am hoping to sell a lot of furniture that we moved out this past weekend along with other knick knacks and clothes. It is going to be a lot of work for all of us but I am hoping it goes well!
