happy friday and a 20 week pregnancy update



Oh where are the days going dear friends. It is late at night and it's actually looking somewhat dark outside. I fear that the height of summer has come and gone. It makes me somewhat sad I must say.
The weekend is almost here and we have some fun ideas planned. One includes a day of jam making. Wish me luck. It will be my first time and I'm really hoping that it will work out. Strawberry rhubarb jam is on the agenda. Just the thought of it on freshly baked scones has my mouth watering~!
I thought I'd give a little pregnancy update since it's been a while. I told myself I'd do this more often for our little one's sake. I'm sure she'd like to look back someday and see what her mamma wrote about what it was like to be pregnant with her. So I'm borrowing an idea that my friend Dawn from May All Seasons Be Sweet To Thee has been doing throughout her pregnancy, a little pregnancy questionnaire.
The pictures of me were taken on Tuesday by Winslow. I'm wearing an Empire Cinch Belt that i received in the mail this week, made lovingly by my sister Sarah who lives in NWT. I just love everything about it! The way is accentuates my baby bump, the colours, the love that was put into it. Thank you so much for my pregnancy gift Bear!

So here we go!

:: How far along: 20 weeks on Saturday

:: Total weight gain: 14 lbs

:: How big is baby: about 6.5 inches

:: Maternity clothes: my old mat jeans from my last pregnancy, stretchy yoga paints and Joe Fresh T-shirts, plus a few nicely tailored maternity shirts that my sister handed down to me.

:: Stretch marks: I had them left over from my pregnancy with Noah... so I can't really tell if there are new ones. Basically, yes, all over my tummy and hips. Warrior marks I tell you!

:: Sleep: I should be going to bed earlier but it's so hard with the midnight sun! Plus Noah still wakes up in the night, so that doesn't help either. Haven't had one single night of uninterrupted sleep in over 24 months. I'm surprised I'm so "awake" during the day at all.

:: Best moment this week: feeling her move and kick. It's such a beautiful and personal moment because only I can feel her at this point. It's like a little secret between her and I. Also another great moment was when Noah wanted to kiss the baby.

:: Food cravings: brie cheese, Carr's water crackers and red grapes. A favourite combo of mine.

:: Labour signs: None and I'm glad for it! It's way too early for that.

:: Belly button: it's still there. Not flat yet.

:: What I miss: this week I've really wanted a glass of wine. Winslow and I went out for a date, just the two of us and I wanted a glass of wine with dinner so bad. Guess I'll have to wait a few more months. It's all worth it though!

:: What I'm looking forward to: holding our little girl in my arms and kissing her. Also shopping for baby girl stuff at all the best 2nd hand shops in Ontario come September.

:: Milestone:
making it another week. Each week that passes means that she is getting stronger and growing bigger.

xox Happy weekend friends!

  1. I love this. Looking forward to the next update already!

    Can't wait to hear how the jam-making goes. I've never done it myself, but hubs attempts marmalade on occasion. Oh my! What a mess!
