Symptoms? Dry, itchy skin on my back as Emilia is growing faster than ever in my belly and stretching me out.
Weight? 136 lb -> 137.4 lb. That makes it a 10-lb gain altogether compared to pre-pregnancy!
Change in dietary habits? None. Andres, on the other hand, craved for bread and butter at 1am the other night and after debating with himself for a whole hour, pulled on his pants and went out to the 24-hr Shoppers next door to buy some. 😀
Sleep? I’m still sleeping very well 🙂
I’m now 100% that Emilia is kicking me! That night after I wrote that post about the 20-week ultrasound, I felt Emilia fist bumping me! It was a very distinct feeling and I could feel the shape of her fist and quite strong compared to all the little bubbly feeling I’ve been getting since I felt her in the subway.
What’s more, Andres felt it too! As soon as I felt her, I let Andres know and he placed his hand on my belly and she kicked again and Andres felt it!! Oh how exciting that was!
Yesterday I felt the strongest kick yet, she punched me in the bladder! lol I couldn’t believe it at first but she did it again! She’s getting to strong. 🙂
At week 20 Emilia is as long as a banana from head to toe.
Anything else special happened this week?
We had our 20-week anatomy scan. We also set up Emilia’s crib!! 😀
