I am 20 weeks today. Half way there. Not sure how that is really possible. I feel like I just found out I was pregnant about a month ago.
I am feeling great for the most part. I am still pretty sleepy but I think that is more due to chasing my almost 2 year old around and juggling being a working mom rather than being pregnant. My lower back has already started feeling “tired” and I know that will not end and will most likely get worse as my belly grows. I feel huge this time around even though I have only gained 6 pounds according to the doctor. I am pretty sure it’s more than since they go off what I weighed at 8 weeks but sure, we will go with 6 ;) My belly really has popped and I look full on legit pregnant. I am in maternity clothes for the most part. I still wear a lot of non maternity shirts but I really need to hit the store and find some more gear. I tried to wear a pair of normal pants the other day but who I am kidding. When I sat down they were they were so comfortable so no more of that.
We had our 20 weeks ultrasound the other day and he is looking just perfect. He was doing all sorts of poses for us and “showing off” as the tech said. He is still a HE was makes me it seems more real to me. We are having a son. The tech seems somewhat annoyed that I was even questioning it but hey, I am also the girl that peed on a stick, had 2 lines and waited 2 days to take another
“just to be sure”. But as she said, those are definitely boy parts. Heartbeat has been around 140 bpm every time we have gone in and this time was no different.
Kyler has been so sweet the past few days. I think it is really starting to sink in that she is having a baby brother. We often call him by his name, which is Hudson Alexander by the way, and she says hi and bye to him and has been kissing my belly lately. Just makes my heart melt! She is going to be the best big sister!!
I know these next 20 weeks are going to fly by thanks to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Kyler’s birthday. After her birthday, I will have about 2 months to get things in order before we become a family of 4! Eek!!
So there you have it, 20 weeks the 2nd time around. It has gone by so much FASTER than my first pregnancy, it’s true what they say, you feel things sooner, and you don’t have time to constantly think about how your life is going to change. Little Hudson will be here before we know it.
