20 weeks

how far along?  20 weeks
how are you measuring?  right on track 20 weeks!!
size of baby? about an 6 1/2 inches from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel, the length of a banana and 10 1/2  ounces
heartbeat? 140's bpm (at our 19 1/2 week appointment)
total weight gain/loss? I've really been stressing out about my weight gain these past few weeks.  My doctor assured me this week that I am doing just fine.  I didn't gain any weight in the 1st trimester, so it's all just coming at once.  I don't plan on watching my weight one bit this week while I'm on my cruise, but when we return I'll be doing my best to only eat the 150 extra calories I'm supposed to have in the 2nd trimester. 
maternity clothes? I busted out some "hand me down" maternity pants this week.  I wore maternity pants for the first time on Thursday. I thought it would be easier to wear maternity pants for my sono last week.  I may never wear regular pants this pregnancy.  Maternity pants are so comfortable.  It's nice to have nothing squeezing my belly.
stretch marks? No
sleep? I'm down to waking up one time during the night.  I get up almost every night at 1:30 on the dot.  It's kind of crazy how it's the same time every night.
best moment this week? "Seeing" our sweet babe and finding out that he is a healthy baby boy!!
movement? I am DEFINITELY feeling movement now.  He moves a lot in the late afternoon.  The movement is still very light.  I can feel it, but Matt can't yet. 
food cravings? Okay, I'll admit it........I had a craving this week.  I don't normally like chocolate. I'll eat a little bit, but I definitely don't crave it like a chocolate lover does.  For some reason this week the little Valentine heart Little Debbie brownies looked so good to me at the grocery store.  I bought a box, and oh my word.  They tasted so good to me!!
gender predictions? It's a BOY!!!  Name to be determined soon!! And we won't be keeping it a secret, so I'll be sure to share when we know!!
what i miss:  Nothing really this week.
what i'm looking forward to: I'm looking forward to spending the week in Caribbean with my hubby.  I'm looking forward to lots of eating, relaxing, reading sleeping and warm sunny weather!!
how are you feeling? I'm feeling pregnant this week!! I know that sounds silly, but I really felt pregnant after our sonogram last week.  I know that there is a little boy moving around in my belly that is beginning to pop out.  It is all becoming so real!!  We're having a baby!!!
