I get to publish this because I'm 20 weeks now! Eeps!
But this is of course about this past week. Sadly again, I did not a take a picture. I am not so great at the taking photos of the bump thing. However, there *is* a bump now. Saturday night I was lying in bed on my back and was like "Ryan, look! Look! See?" and he was like "Yep. That's showing." My bump was happily protruding up. I've also got him to admit there's a tiny bit of showing going on when I'm walking around, and as he's been very picky about that (admitting he doesn't want me to show as it seems to 'real') I know that means it's undeniable.
That's really the biggest thing this week, the belly getting bigger. It's not huge or anything, it's still a modest bump compared to other ladies as far along as me on the interwebz but big for me. I'm still not what my sister calls "grocery store pregnant" or anything yet. I'll try to remember to take a picture today or in the next few days so that you can see next week. :)
The baby is still moving around and I'm feeling it more and more, but there was still a day or two in the past week I didn't really feel the baby at all. But towards the end of the week I really was feeling him/her with increasing frequency.
The only other note while symptom was my increased sense of smell. I had this earlier in the pregnancy as well, but that was during the morning sickness stage, so it was different. I had to run out of the butcher shop earlier this week with a hand to my nose and calling over my shoulder the cuts of meat we needed to Ryan. I also have had trouble with our kittens in that suddenly they stink. Plus poor Ryan apparently has horrible breath. Haha.
Anything else? Hmm, except trouble sleeping from discomfort combined with mild fatigue (probably trying to make up for interrupted sleep) I've mainly felt fine!
OH! I had my first Braxton Hicks contraction. Scared me because wasn't sure what it was, but I googled it and found out from the irregularity and getting up and walking so it went away, everything was fine.
Update you again next week!
