Baby Yancey - 19/20 Week Bumpdate

Yes, I'm skipping a week... sort of.  A couple weeks ago when we went for our big anatomy scan, my Dr. moved up my due date to January 30th.  {It was February 3rd}  I really didn't think much of it being moved up a few days, I mean really do we really know when he's going to make His arrival??  Well, yeah... turns out it makes a difference.  So much of a difference that it moves my pregnancy up a whole week!  So, technically we're covering week 20... & Celebrating that we're officially half way through!!!

How far along:  19 20 Weeks

Baby Size:  The size of a large banana.  About 6.5 inches long & a little over 10 oz.

Weight Gain:
  I'll say 6 lbs.

Maternity Clothes:  Somewhat... I can still fit into some of my regular clothes but, they're getting a little more snug with each day that passes.  I am so thankful for maternity leggings though & can't wait for my skinny jeans to come in!!  {In what life am I excited about wearing maternity clothes!?}

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  I think I've found some small ones on the ta-ta's but, nothing too bad!

Sleep:  Descent but, I guess I get into such a deep sleep that my arms start falling asleep & it wakes me up.  So, I toss & turn quite a bit.

Exercise:  Nada!

Food Cravings or Aversions:  Major sweet tooth cravings & cereal!  Last night we Matt made skinny meatloaf for dinner & while I was fixing the mashed potatoes I thought I was going to lose it smelling the meatloaf.  Woof!  I don't know what it was but, it just didn't smell good.  So, I had cereal for dinner instead.  HA!

Gender:  BOY!  Jack Jack!!

Movement:  Yes!  The little nugget is certainly moving & I think just in the last couple of days I can feel him from the outside... Hoping I can catch him soon so Matt can feel.  But, everything I read says that will probably come in the next couple of weeks - anyone remember when this happened for them?

Symptoms:  I don't want to jinx myself but, I think the headaches may have subsided!?  Did have 1 nose bleed earlier this week but, nothing else major... except a growing belly!

Labor Signs:  No, no, no!

Belly button in or out:  In

Wedding rings on or off:  On

Mood:  I would say overall good.  If you asked Tuesday though I would have said highly irritable!  I don't know what was wrong with me but, I just wasn't in the mood for anything that day.

Nursery:  It is officially cleaned out & only baby items are taking up space!!  We have ordered the crib & mattress & some of the bedding too!  I just cannot wait for all of that to arrive!!

What I miss:  Fall beers... I realize that probably sounds bad, especially 2 weeks in a row but, y'all it is that time of year & I just want a pumpkin beer darn it!!

Best moment this week:  Finding out I'm a week ahead in my pregnancy than what I thought!!  Boo-ya!!

What I'm looking forward to:  Nursery furniture arriving & starting to buy decorations for his room!!


  1. WOW, that's so crazy they changed the date. WOohoo for being farther along!

    Love the name Jack Jack, so cute.

    And you look fabulous.

  2. You look adorable!! So fun to hit the half way mark! Love the name Jack! Have fun with the nursery decorating! That has been my favortie part :)

  3. YAY!! Jan 30th is my birthday (and it's a pretty dang good day at that!). My ultrasound tech has wanted to move my due date at each scan, but my Dr is holding firm to my first due date.

  4. 21 weeks was super active for me! Especially in the evenings when laying down for bed

  5. Darn - Mike is hoping he's wrong by a day or you hold on like crazy for January 31- yep his B-Day!!!!!
