Bumpdate: 20 Weeks. Halfway!

11127667_805512574659_824430882584766943_n How far along: 20 Weeks. Marking the halfway point of this pregnancy!

Due Date: September 17

Gender: Sweet little boy. 

Baby Size: My phone informs me that this week the babe is the size of a banana. He’s around 10.5 inches from head to toe. 

Weight gain: I really “popped” this week, with a total weight gain of …11 pounds. We also did a lot of celebrating all week-long, which means I ate a lot of pizza and ice cream too. 

Maternity clothes: It’s basically all that works right now. I had high hopes that many of my flowy non maternity summer dresses would fit me this summer, but no. How naive. 

Movement: Still not feeling any movement due to my anterior placenta. 

Best moment these two weeks: Ryan finishing law school! We celebrated his accomplishments with dinner out and walking around First Friday in our town. Saturday we sat by the river and enjoyed music and pizza, and Sunday we took a trip to Ikea for nursery furniture and enjoyed more waterfront beach drinks. It is so amazing to talk about law school in the past tense. It was always, “when I’m finished with school we will…” and now we are living our dreams. Done with school and expecting a baby. 

Looking forward to: Girls’ trip to NYC this weekend! And hopefully feeling baby kick soon. Also, can he just arrive already? 


Food cravings: Milkshakes and Pizza

What I miss: Enjoying an alcoholic beverage outside. Running at my full capacity. 

Mood: Happy and anxious! 

Symptoms: Allergies, tired, hungry, and still experiencing hip pain.

Sleep: It’s always good during the week and bad on the weekends. That should be reversed, right?!


Nursery: We have the crib set up and have purchased the Ikea dresser we will use for a changing table as well as a glider. It’s really coming together nicely. 

Loving: Celebrating with Ryan, thinking how fast this summer will fly by and how soon we will get to meet our son.

  • Love that little bump!!! Mmmm, a milkshake does sound good!! You guys are making such progress on the nursery!! You look beautiful, and I’m so with you on the “can’t he just be here already?’

      I’m just getting around to catching up on comments! Milkshakes have been on my mind since last week. I really need to slow down or this weight gain will start escalating fast than I want. I just want to meet him!

  • i can’t believe you are halfway already! that’s so exciting! i’ll be hoping that the next half flies by for you.

    • kwalshmac

      I know! Sometimes it feels like this pregnancy is going fast. At other times it feels like an eternity until I can meet him…How fast did the second half go for you?

  • Halfway there! Halfway there! That’s so exciting!! Your bump is so adorable! Also, I’m now craving a milkshake all the sudden… haha

    • kwalshmac

      Saying I was halfway there felt amazing!! I hope the next 18 weeks fly by, I just want to hold him! Ah yes, milkshakes…I want one all the time. But I always want ice cream – I hope I don’t give myself too much leeway with saying “ah what the hell, you’re pregnant!” when allowing myself all these treats 🙂

  • Congratulations on hitting halfway! You look beautiful! I remember the halfway mark to meeting our little peanut, and we just couldn’t wait! It’s such an amazing time. Treasure it 🙂

    • kwalshmac

      Thank you! You’re sweet! I’m trying to treasure the special moments of each week, but want to hold him so bad. Pregnancy hasn’t been easy, that’s for sure.

  • Ahh, I can’t believe you’re already halfway there! So exciting!

    • kwalshmac

      YES! And since I’m late on replying to comments, I now only have 18 weeks left. Kinda crazy! Hope you are well.
