Mommy Monday {20 weeks}

I know, I know this post is 2 days late and definitely not on Monday, but I don't want mess with the name. Haha. I have not been having the greatest week {hello Round Ligament Pains}, so I've been going to bed early and just haven't had time to blog. It is also the first week back from break and we are having Parent/Teacher Conferences. So exhausting.  So here we go.

How far along? 20 weeks!
Total weight gain: Doctor's office says I'm up 14 lbs (which is actually 1 lb less than a month ago). Believe me, with all the holiday food, I've been eating my fair share. My mom's toffee bars are to die for and I'm pretty sure I ate an entire pan myself. 
Maternity clothes: I have been wearing a lot of dresses and leggings to work, which is quite nice because I don't feel restricted. 
Stretch marks: Still none, thank goodness! I'm hoping to keep it that way. I'm lathering my belly every night before bed. 
Sleep: Ugh, sleep, what's that? The last two nights have been pretty miserable. I know I'm only 20 weeks, but man, the pains. My back hurts, my belly hurts, I can't roll over. UGH. I'm hoping this will pass as soon. I did however buy the Leachco Snoogle today in hopes to gain some sleep back. 
Best moment this week: Being able to see Baby at our Anatomy Scan today. However, Baby did not want to show it's face or gender {bummer} so we have to go back again in 2 weeks. I won't complain about being able to see him/her again! 
Miss anything? Sleep! and being pain free!
Movement: Yes, I've been feeling movement several times per day lately. It is quite an amazing feeling. 
Food cravings: Grapefruit is the craving of the moment. I'm sure it will be something new tomorrow. Haha. 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not a thing. Crossing my fingers it stays this way. 
Gender: Still no such luck. Baby had it's legs crossed throughout our entire anatomy scan. Hopefully in 2 weeks!
Labor signs: No and let's keep it that way!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I've just been feeling upset by all this pain. It's been so bad that I've almost been in tears a couple times. Other than that, my mood has been pretty steady. 
Looking forward to: The weekend so I can relax! 

Until next time!
