Pregnancy Update: Week 20

Hey Guys! I’m stopping in quick to share my week 20 update (trying to not let another month pass before doing another one) So let’s get right to it!20 weeks pic

I’d definitely say there is no more hiding the ‘ol bump!

Here’s what’s going on with the babes this week:

  • The babies are weighing in at about 10 1/2 ounces and are about the size of a banana
  • They are measuring at about 10 inches long from head to heels
  • The babes are swallowing more often now which is good for their digestive systems

Here’s what’s going on with me:

Weight Gain: I think about 10-12 pounds all together

Workouts: Considering how busy our lives have been the past couple of weeks, I have amazingly been able to walk/jog Paisley almost daily for about 20-30 minutes and started back at Pure Barre this week (hoping for 3-4x/week depending on how I feel).

Symptoms: Mostly just hungry every few hours, I always have some sort of snack with me at all times! I have started to feel some little fluttering in the belly, but no big kicks that can be felt from the outside just yet. And yes, I am still needing to go to the bathroom once each night. One of the babies is definitely sitting on top of my bladder…at least that’s what it feels like! Oh, and you can forget me staying up any later than 10pm.

Food Cravings: Still relatively the same….a cheeseburger always sounds good (but I’m not giving into that craving very often), cold cereal, and milk.

Food Aversions: Thankfully none!

Sleep: I’ve been moving around a little more to get comfy at night, but I think that can also be attributed to the fact that I’m not in my own bed just yet (one more week!)

Stretch Marks: None, still applying my belly lotions in the morning and night!

 Genders: A BOY and GIRL. I feel like we hit the jackpot right there 🙂

Baby Items Purchased: I’m planning on heading to the Baby Gap this week with a giftcard and picking out some stuff…finally!

Looking forward To: Organizing their nursery, feeling some more kicks and of course shopping for them!

    you look so great!! I’m 32 weeks with a boy – I’m excited to keep up with you and your two! And shopping for babies is the best ever. All the things are so, so cute!

    You sure did nail it with a boy & girl. I have a boy twin myself & must say it was always so lovely growing up with twin brother. I never felt like I didn’t have protection around me.

    Aww you look great! I remember when I first started feeling flutterings and I didn’t realize it was kicking until I kind of just stopped and thought about it! Then they got really strong and I could see my belly move from the outside. That is the one thing I miss about being pregnant. 🙂
