Preggers I: 20 Weeks

How far along? 20 weeks
How I am feeling?  Nervous about heading to Texas next weekend.  This will be my last practicum placement, and I will be in Austin, Texas for three weeks.  Baby and I don't want to leave Hubby for three days let alone three weeks.

Weight gain/loss:  Weight gain...

How big is baby? The size of an artichoke or a banana.

Sleep:  Pretty well.  A little harder to roll over
Boy/Girl Prediction:  I'm not sure... it hasn't really been on my mind this week.
Baby Nicknames:  Nugget, or Baby

Best moment this week: Probably not the best moment, but I am learning that my center of gravity has definitely changed.  I've tripped a few times, and even fell on Friday, which led to an extra visit to the Doctor's office just to make sure everything was okay.  Things are certainly changing. 

Food cravings: Pasta -- also, not a craving, but I basically have not liked steak since about 6 weeks of being pregnant.  This is SOOO weird for me, and I keep waiting for my love of steak to return, but so far, it is the last thing I want in my tummy.
Missing:  My love for steak.  Hubby and I went to a really nice steak house for his birthday, and I ordered Halibut.  My fish was really good, but that's not really why one goes to a steak house.

Maternity Clothes:  Yes -- and I'm a little nervous about my upcoming departure for Texas because I don't have all that many summer maternity clothes.  I have more fall and headed into winter clothes.
Movements:  Nope, not at all.  Gas movements, yes.  Stomach growling, yes.  But baby movements -- nope.

Labor Signs: No.  Thank goodness!

General Attitude:  Nervous about leaving my hubby for three weeks, and trying to cherish every moment with him.

What I am looking forward to this week:  We have an ultrasound appointment on Thursday.  We are not going to find out the gender, but we're really excited to get to see the baby and how much he/she has changed.  The last time we saw him/her, was at 8 weeks, and the baby looked like a little bean.  I can't imagine the changes we are going to see.

Milestones:  Halfway point.  Holy cow!
