20 Weeks - Halfway There

By 3:05 PM , ,

Today marks the halfway mark of my pregnancy, and I can hardly believe it. I’m officially five months pregnant, and it’s been quite the whirlwind. While on some days, I can’t remember ever not being pregnant, it also feels like just yesterday that I was getting that absolute miracle news that after being told we would never have another child we were expecting again. For my post today, I wanted to give you an overall update on how I’m feeling and what’s been going on for the last few months. 
While I feel insanely blessed to be carrying this little one inside of me, not everything about pregnancy is pretty. Sometimes it's hard and exhausting. The first trimester I was very sick and have only gained 4 lbs to date because of how often I was throwing up. Combine that with super early days and super late nights due to my job training and full days and it was a tough season but **knock on wood** the morning sickness seems to be letting up some and I am feeling a LOT better! Now if my energy would just pick up...
Cravings: El Fudge cookies and Taco Bell...I know....so weird and so unhealthy but I could literally eat a pack of those cookies and a taco everyday
Feeling: REALLY tired but sickness is starting to get a little better although I still can't attempt pre-natals before 5pm
Movement: While I have felt her for a few weeks my husband was able to feel her move for the first time this morning which was super special there is nothing quite like it - it is so cool and so amazing all at the same time 
Excited about: decorating her nursery and seeing her in an ultrasound on Monday - we have all her bedding picked out and I am really starting to get that urge to "nest"
