20 WEEKS = 140 Days!

Oh, we're half way thereOh ohlivin' on a prayer. Take my hand, we'll make it I swear.

I've had a few people tell me to take pictures of the belly through out the pregnancy or else you will regret it. I decided okay as much as I really really didn't want to and have been trying to avoid "Kodak moments" its time. I feel like over the past few weeks I've popped! It could be that i'm able to keep food down, well for the most part... 
I bought some bellabands at norties and they are amazing! I'm not ready for the kangaroo pouch yet!
PTH is 10 oz! She's a growing!

Belly and the Bling!

Right now I'm 160 lbs. YES girls I just told you my weight! :) I've accepted that  i'm gonna be a fatty for a little while. I'm actually under weight right now... According to my weight, height, week ratio at  What to Expect. I need to gain 4-5 more lbs. I'm okay with that and the Dr. seemed okay with it too. 
I found this chart to be kind of neat!
Where Does All This Weight Gain Go?
Here is a breakdown of where you can expect the extra pounds to go:
Baby7-8 pounds
Placenta1-2 pounds
Amniotic fluid2 pounds
Uterus2 pounds
Maternal breast tissue2 pounds
Maternal blood4 pounds
Fluids in maternal tissue4 pounds
Maternal fat and nutrient stores7 pounds
Things I want to remember:
1. The feeling I felt when I saw her as a person in side me for the first time! 
2. The way Mike takes care of me and loves me. Even when i'm being a hormonal witch!
3. The first kick! It wasn't just little fluttery movement it was a AHHH she just kicked me! 
4. How much I still love baths!
5. How gross grilled chicken is to me right now! YUCK!
6. The charlie horses in my butt! 
7. My love for milk! 
8. Being emotional :)
9. Missing the things I love... sports, horseback riding, long boarding, wake boarding, and most of all PEPSI!
10. How blunt and honest I am. How annoyed I get by stupid people. 
11. How wearing a seat belt has always been so important to me until now because the pressure makes me vomit.
12. Not going to the bathroom every hour and several times in the middle of the night.
Thanks good for now i'm sure there are a ton more, but i'll save them for 3/4 of the way!

All I know is that your chart on "where to expect the weight to grow" is gross and I don't like it. I'm way to immature to understand these things and I would appreciate it if you left graphic content off of your blog. Just kidding! Interesting stuff. I'm excited for you guys! You're going to have one spoiled little girl with Mike as the Dad. Haha. I can't wait tell Peyton and I share our first beer... It's gonnna be great. ;)
You look fantastic!! I was in maternity pants by like 16 weeks! So no need to feel like a fatty!

WOOO HOOO! you look so cute nikki! i love these pictures and i'm so glad that i'm able to help you take them! i feel that these shots came out lovely!! hihihi.

and this is so much fun. i think it's important to write down the things that you're going to want to remember. cause after a while, little things like that, can be hard to remember. i love how you're keeping track.

i love you. and you're gorgeous!

This whole post was so cute Nikki! I love how honest you are too! And about missing the things you love...just wait a few more months from now and you can add sitting down for longer than 10 minutes and being able to breathe at night. I wondered if your back injury will make an epidural difficult? Have you thought about your birth plan yet?

Oh how I loved my Bellaband!! You make a cute pregnant mama!

Such cute pics! You look great and I'm glad you're keeping a journal of what it's like. I really wish I would've done that. Anyway, we really need to go out again sometime soon. Let us know...
