Week 20: Bumps & Wiggles — HALFWAY THERE!!

Week 20 bump date 2014

  • Affirmations: My nightly lineup usually includes Claritin-D, neti pot and saline, prenatal vitamins, hot honey-lemon water that my husband lovingly makes for me. Still fighting a nasty cough. Heart palpitations, shortness of breath when coughing. Lot of leg cramps/Charlie horses. Back aching along my spine, especially at my lumbar fusion.
  • Emotions: Got snappy several times last week; not proud of it. Doing much, much better this week!
  • Names: Same favorites.
  • I’ve been searching Etsy for ages for the perfect monogrammed Mommy necklace for my two little ones. {I also have a beautiful March birthstone teardrop necklace from our first pregnancy from Etsy.} I’d been watching this particular Lisa Leonard “Wildflowers” necklace for awhile now. It finally went on sale a few weeks ago, so I snatched it up, and it arrived Monday! I went ahead and had the backs monogrammed while it was free. There are 3 more complimentary charms that go with it, but I stuck with 2 for my babies. 🙂

  • To do: So many fun errands to run and projects to complete before we see our families this weekend! More posts to come on these!
  • Movement felt: Some big movements each day, but not as frequently as in earlier weeks. A few that I could feel from the outside.
  • Cravings: None, although convenience had us eating out a couple times more than we would have liked – grab ‘n go foods.
  • Food aversions: Yogurt, coffee
  • Workouts this week: Treadmill runs, Girls on the Run practices.
  • Crazy dreams and sleep patterns: Waking up frequently out of excitement, checking the date on my phone and counting down the days til the end of the week! As far as dreams, here’s an example of the types of vivid dreams I have every.single.night: I was back in college with my first year roommate, who had her (now) baby with her in our dorm. I was supposed to be watching one of my students with a remote-controlled helicopter that was carrying an aerial camera. I neglected to keep up with the helicopter camera, and my student got hurt. So her dad called a meeting with me, my administrators, and a friend, and he showed up to the meeting with a pocket full of marble-shooter-sized bullets, which he began throwing at us because we hadn’t watched his daughter. They exploded all over our legs, leaving big red sores. My friend bowed out of the meeting because it had nothing to do with her, and I tried to leave then, too, and just got more thrown at me, which I deflected (along with all the others) with a small cowbell I was holding. When I finally got out, I was back in my hometown trying to decide whether to call 911 or our school resource officer. And then I woke up. Bam. Pregnancy dreams.
  • Best moments this week: Volunteering at a Family Fun night in a local underprivileged community with a group from my church. Staying up late listening to my son giggle. Yardsale scores with my family. Baby dedication parenting class.
  • Looking forward to: A really exciting end to the week!! Prenatal appointment and half-day at work, co-coaching my Girls on the Run team at their district-wide Celebration 5k (that I’m running with them), throwing an 80s-themed 30th birthday party for my husband, having our son dedicated at church with a family brunch at our house afterward, and celebrating Mothers Day, possibly out-of-town. Lots and lots of our families coming in to celebrate with us! Oh, and teacher appreciation goodies this week!
  • What I miss: Knowing that our fall family traditions will be a little different this year. Being able to lay my son in his crib without cutting off my belly!
  • Messages and prayers to baby: We have so much to anticipate at the halfway point in our pregnancy! I can’t believe how quickly you are growing from week to week. We love you so very, very much.
