20 Weeks | Halfway There!

How far along? 20 Weeks.  Baby is about the length of a BANANA.   
Maternity clothes? Yes. 
Stretch marks? No sign of them yet.
Sleep: Who sleeps? Not this baby! Or this mommy... We have a little night owl. 
Best moment(s) this week: Watching Brynn feel this sweet baby's kicks for the first time. After initially being pretty excited, I think it quickly changed to being a little freaked out. She flat-out refuses to "feel the baby move" now... Also, we will find out the gender tomorrow morning... And from there, we will be able to make our Gender Reveal video that I've been plotting for the past few weeks! :) I am so excited for both counts! 
Miss Anything? Pretty consistently... Corona and sushi. My mouth waters just thinking those words. 
Movement: ABSOLUTELY! This is one active baby! It's so funny, but I don't remember feeling full-blown kicks and rolls
with Brynn this early... Looking back on my 20 Weeks post though, obviously I was mistaken. 
Food cravings: Watermelon and bacon. Sometimes together. Hey, pregnancy makes you do crazy things... 
Anything making you queasy or sick: I still have the occasional bad day, but it's been nice to not feel sick constantly! 
Gender: You will find out soon! We find out bright and early tomorrow morning...
Labor Signs: None. 
Symptoms: Feeling very "full" and very pregnant. I feel so much bigger than I was with Brynn... Like, a LOT. I would probably be in a full-blown waddle when walking, if it weren't for the toddler clinging to my hip. She insists on being carried, by Mommy, EVERYWHERE these days... I know that she's soaking up these last few months of being the solo child, so I don't mind at all. :) 
Belly Button in or out? In. 
Wedding rings on or off? On.
 Mood: Fat and Happy. 
Looking forward to: Revealing the gender to our families and friends, and shopping for gender-appropriate gear! :)

Pregnancy Comparison: 20 WEEKS with Brynn.

While Mommy was slapping on a little makeup and brushing my hair out,
I had a little visitor, which is usually the case when I'm at the vanity...
She is soooo into makeup and jewelry, 
so it usually goes that she takes over while I attempt to get ready!
I let her put on some "yipstick," and I watched as she proceeded to apply warpaint...
 She had me cracking up as she was looking in the mirror, apply it,
and looked up and said, "Wow! I wook wike a monster!" 
We wiped that off after a few giggles, 
and Mommy showed her the more appropriate way to apply lipstick. 
B was so excited to get dressed up and take pictures...
That is, until we actually started taking pictures! 
She is what I would call: camera-shy with a vengence
There is no "Say Cheese" or "Smile Big!" when we take pictures... That's the surest way
to get her to run like heck out of there! I take all of my photos of her on-the-sly usually... While she is distracted by something more exciting going on. ;)
So, we broke out the magic wand and let her run around like crazy,
while Daddy snapped away!

I love this girl's heart....
Here are a few photos from her bubble bath the other night.
We went heavy on the bubbles and the fun!

Tomorrow morning, we find out whether she will have a brother or sister counterpart 
to join her in the future!! :) Hope you all have a great week!

The bathtub pictures are precious! The way you write about being pregnant almost makes me wish I could go through the experience - almost! Good luck!
