Breadcrumb Week 20

How far along: 20 weeks!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: -4 pounds from prepregnancy weight. I think that's the biggest weight gain in a week this entire pregnancy.

  • food aversions, specifically protein. Still only eating meat about once a week, it's the last thing I want to eat most days. 
  • tiredness
  • loss of sex drive
  • constipation
  • getting winded easier
  • super vibrant dreams
  • heartburn / acid reflux - this only lasts a few moments and I can usually make it go away by drinking water
Maternity clothes: All day, every day. 

Stretch marks: Nothing new!

Sleep: I have the bladder of a goldfish, so sleep is done in 1.5 hour increments. 

Best moment last week: Hitting the 20 week mark!

Movement: Feeling something every day! Keegan thinks he may have felt something, so I'm excited for the kicks to get stronger so he can feel them often.  

Food cravings: Water, that's about it. 

Gender: Our little man! 

Labor signs: Zilch, thank goodness.

Belly button? Much shallower! Still thinking it'll be an outie by the end of pregnancy. 

What I miss: Coke, and not having the bladder of a goldfish.
What I am looking forward to: Not so much baby related things, but our next few weekends are going to be busy with seeing people and doing things. There's also the last consignment event of the season the first week of April that we're going to. 

Baby Buys: We had a lot of baby buys this week! We went to a consignment event on Wednesday and got 12 pieces of clothing (onesies, shirts, shorts, pants,) a cart seat cover, two bibs, three towels, 4 Melissa and Doug puzzles, a Melissa and Doug block stacker, and 9 cloth diaper soakers for $84! 

We also went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and got...

A poster of the US made out of license plates similar to this (and I just realized our doesn't have Alaska or Hawaii!) 

as well as a red Corvette sign and an end table that has "Route 66" made out of vintage license plates (Hobby Lobby doesn't have the pictures for some reason.) With Keegan being so into cars, as well as our friends from college, Breadcrumb is pretty much destined to be into classic cars. 

A local furniture store was closing, so we went in today and got a chocolate brown rocker recliner for the nursery at an amazing price. We're close to finishing the nursery, we just need linens and little decorative touches now! 

Milestones: Reaching the half way point! 


  1. Half way!!! Sounds like you were quite productive this week. Time sure is flying!

  2. your bump is growing! you've popped more :) eee!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE.
    super cool map signs! and melissa and doug? those toys are a steal! yay!
    did you give up caffeine?! you are a trooper! i failed at that after trimester 1. miserably, lol!

  3. I can't believe that you are halfway already! I love your purchases from Hobby Lobby! I can't wait to see nursery pics!

  4. Bladder of a goldfish LOL! And what an adorable theme for breadcrumbs room! Love it!

  5. Stopping by from ICLW. I love the map with the license plates. I have been so tempted to buy it before myself. I think it's perfect for a little boy's room.
