20 weeks and the weekend

Happy Friday my little cherubs! Are you guys as excited as I am that it's Friday? Exciting things happening this weekend -- this mama to be is getting her hair did and it's in dyer need. I'm going completely blonde since I'm sorta bored with the brown and blonde. my hair is a bunch of different shades of browns and blondes, so it'll be nice to go with 1 solid color. I blogged about the different shades I should go with and you all voted on Mrs. Carrie Underwood Fisher

these are the pics I'll be taking to my hair dresser. I've never met this girl doing my hair, but I relied on citysearch to help me find a good salon and I got to read this girls bio. She's cute as a button and she's a blonde (Snaps for her!) aaaand, she specializes in getting blondes to the shade they want. Whether it's platinum or natural. I'm thinking I want 1.5 shades away from platinum (Pray that my hair doesn't break off!) I'll take pics on Sunday when I actually shower and do it. The other thing on my agenda the rest of the week? G.T.L baby! I am getting pasty especially on the belly. Not.OKAY! So I'm laying out, getting my gym time in, and of course, laundry.
Today marks my 20 week mark! By the beard of Zeus, when the heck did I get halfway through my pregnancy so fast?!

How far along? 20 Weeks- half way through!!

Baby's size? The baby bean weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He or she is also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana.

Weight Gain? About 10.5 lbs for the entire pregnancy. At my appointment it was 7lbs in 1 month. Like I said, I crave my coldstone and I GET my coldstone :)

Maternity clothes? Still rocking normal tops and maternity tops, but it's all stretchy or maternity pants from here on out. I can still make my maxi dresses look good though, their just not work appropriate unless I worked as a fly girl from In Living Color

Belly button in or out? Still in, but as you can tell from my last post w/pics, it's getting pretty shallow. I'm sure an ant could use it as a kiddie pool haha

Sleep? Sleep is good, although around 2 am I start to wake up which sucks and makes for a sleepy girl in the morning for work. Its generally the time I get up to pee, so it takes me a bit to fall asleep.

Foods I am loving? COLDSTONE!!! Nicky poo went to coldstone the other day to get me a 'love it' size of my creation I make, and came home to surprise me with a whole gallon!! He said I was so excited, it was as if he had just given me a diamond. To a pregnant woman, that ice cream is the Heart of the Ocean baby

Foods I am hating? Not really hating any foods to be honest. I still don't like the food I normally didn't like before pregnancy. I did eat whole piece of chicken though, but it was chicken parm :)

Best moment this week? Getting to hear the heartbeat and hitting the half way mark. And Nick getting me a gallon of ice cream :)

Movement? Oh yeah, it's getting more frequent and stronger. Nick can't feel it yet though and my OB said to expect to feel a lot more and a lot stronger kicks in the next coming weeks

Symptoms? My symptoms? The fact that I can't stop thinking about my coldstone that's in the freezer all lonely without me

Gender? We find out in 5 days, AHHHH!! That baby better open it's friggin legs!

What I miss? Nothing, pregnancy is superb. I do miss running which I stopped doing cause it hurt my lower region with a lot of pressure, so I got paranoid. Now it's elliptical, stair stepper (holy moly it's so difficult!), or the bike.

What I'm looking forward to? Our anatomy/gender reveal scan next Wednesday.

Weekly Wisdom: Just because you WANT to eat the whole gallon of ice cream at once, it's better not to. You need to eat it conservatively so you can prevent having to send hubbs out to get more. Plus it'll keep $$ in the bank :)

Milestone: Meeting the half way mark. We will be meeting our son or daughter in 17-22weeks

Emotions: Productive - I've been cooking amazing meals and staying on top of the cleaning and laundry lately. Oh and I'm hungry :P
