{20 Week Bump)

How far along?: 20 weeks
Total weight gain?: 10ish lbs

Size of baby?: Baby is the size of a bananer! 10.1 ounces :)
Maternity clothes?: All day every day, or at least leggings and Sean's shirts hehe!
Stretch marks?: Not really, but mine from Henry are kinda peeking their way through. Ugh.
Sleep: I'm so worn out from my new job and taking care of a growing toddler, so I sleep every second that I can. My body demands it, really.
Best moment this week: This week? I'd probably say feeling her sweet kicks. They're just that, soft and sweet, for now, and their getting stronger and more frequent so I can really tell she's busy moving in there. Ah! Or Henry asking to hug my belly and saying that he wants baby sister to come out. lol. We're all a little excited around here, even H!
Miss anything?: Sushi!!! Although, I've been known to love a good veggie roll. With everything changing and going on right now, I do miss a nice cocktail, it'll be hard to get through the holidays without one!
Movement?: TONS. Now if only Sean could feel her!
Food cravings: Not really, just if something pops into my head that does sound good, I have to have it-right then and there! 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: At first, everything. Morning sickness was way worse with this one than with Henry. It was absolutely awful, but it's faded and now all is well. :)
Gender: GIRL <3 <3 <3
Labor signs: No.
SymptomsJust a little sciatica pain here and there, headaches every now and then and some major heartburn/acid reflux.
Belly button in or out?: In :)
Happy or moody most of the time?: How honest should I be? HA. It's tough having had to start a new job, sending H to daycare and being pregnant all at once. A lot of changes have gone on in a very short period of time. I'm trying to adapt and be positive, but some days it's really tough. I miss my Henry, too, too much. I miss bringing him to work with me everyday. I miss having the freedom to pick and choose my schedule and having the option to put my son first 100% of the time, no one telling me I can't be late because of daycare conflicts or yada yada. I'm just kind of unhappy with my current situation. I know everything in life is temporary, or just a season, so I know you're not supposed to say this, but I'm ready for this season to pass. I'm ready to have my beautiful baby girl here, to hold and to have some time at home with her and Henry (be it short or not). I'm ready to see Henry with his baby sister. Being a mom is my one, true passion. My world revolves around them and that's all I want, to take care of my babies. There's a light at the end of the tunnel and I look forward to watching my babies grow. Knowing that I'm growing a beautiful baby girl and raising the sweetest little boy keeps me going and keeps the excitement there, even when it's tough. <3
Can you tell I'm hormonal?
