20 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 20 Weeks, I'm half way to being able to meet little Jackson!!

Size of Baby: The baby is around 6 1/2 inches long (head to rump), 10 inches head to heel. (About the length of a banana.) He weighs around 10 1/2 ounces.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my 16 week appt. I had gained 6 lbs total. I've probably gained a little more in the last 4 weeks, but I'm not sure how much. I should have a better idea after my Dr. appt. on Friday.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity pants and mostly maternity shirts.

Gender: Its a BOY!! Jackson Thomas Smith

Movement: Yes, feeling movement more and more. Its still light, but more frequent now and seems to be getting stronger.

Food Cravings: Loving fruit and sweets.

What I miss: Nothing really.

Sleep: Having to get up at least once a night to use the restroom, otherwise sleeping fine.

Symptoms: Having to use the restroom often and some mid back pain.

Best Moment this week: Feeling Jackson move more and more and spending time with family this past weekend.

What I am looking forward to: Getting to hear Jackson's heartbeat on Friday at my Dr. Appt.

Our Weekend!

This past weekend was great. Even with the extra day off, it still didn't seem long enough. But, nonetheless, I was happy to have that extra day!

Saturday, Jake and I got up and started working around the house. Jake mowed the yard while I cleaned and organized. I had said in my previous post that I wanted to get the closet in the future nursery cleaned out to make room for Jackson's clothes, and I was able to get that all done!! Yay! Then Saturday afternoon, I did some baby shopping with my Mom, sister Ashlee and nephew Landon. We pretty much shopped til we dropped! Later that evening, we fixed Spaghetti at my house. :-)

Sunday we went to church, then had lunch with my parents and Papa at Chili's. Later that evening we had a wedding to go to at Pere Marquette Lodge! Here are a few pictures from the wedding!

Then Monday, Jake, my BIL Jason and my Dad all golfed in the morning while I cleaned the house and did some shopping for our BBQ later that afternoon. Then when the guys got home, Landon played in our sprinkler while we waited for the rest of the family to get there to start our BBQ. Here are some pictures!

Landon wearing his new Transformers swimming trunks I got him for his B-day, along with his Transformers towel. All ready for the sprinkler.

In honor of Memorial Day I bought us all some Patriot Pops!! Landon enjoyed his! :-)

This was their idea for the pool!!

Libby loved the pool. I think we may need to invest in a plastic kids pool for her this summer!

So all in all it was a great weekend! I hope yours was too!
