How far along? 20 weeks! HALF WAY THERE!! Weeee!
Total weight gain/measurements: Now at 114 lbs! Heck yes! The belly is getting big!
Maternity clothes: Desperate for some new clothes! My fleece lined maternity leggings are cute and all, BUT they are starting to get pills EVERYWHERE which is so gross and up kept looking. So no dice on those. I need to find a new legging that doesn't do that but keeps my stems warm and toasty while comfortably hugging my growing belly!
Stretch marks? No. Burts Bees Mama Belly Butter every day and lots of H2O!
Sleep: Sleep has been OK this week. I've managed to keep comfy. BUT since this last week had been so crazy exciting, there were a couple nights where it was hard to fall asleep.
Best moment this week: Telling our friends and family the big gender news on Thanksgiving!
Miss anything? Not really.
Movement: Kicks for days! I love it!
Food cravings: Mashed potatoes and gravy.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)
Gender: IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!
Symptoms: Restless legs (thanks to Phil for the leg massages!) as well as a lovely cold just days before Thanksgiving. Pregnancy pretty much kills your immune system and not being able to take medicine prolongs whatever sickness is picked up. Luckily, my stuffy nose and sore throat went away (mostly) after a couple days and I was able to enjoy Thanksgiving!
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty happy all week long!
Looking forward to: Getting the house cozy for Christmas ad SHOPPING for a baby boy!!!! There are SO many adorable boy outfits out there, I JUST CAN'T!! <3

My little "its a..." DIY gender reveal box! I found this idea on Pinterest and though it was THE cutest idea ever!
I sent a couple of boxes to out-of-state family. We facetimed them while they opened it!
