20 weeks!

how far along? 20 weeks! Halfway baked :)
Claire’s size: 10 inches long… about the size of a banana!!
weight gain: Finally some weight gain- +3 pounds
maternity clothes? Yeah. They’re much too comfortable to not wear J
stretch marks? No.
sleep? I sleep great if Matt or Murphy don’t disturb me
best moment this week? Finding out that our baby is a precious little girl, Claire.
food cravings: No cravings this week.
gender: Girl! (I’m so happy to be able to answer this definitively.)
belly button in or out? In
movement? She’s becoming an acrobat in there. I love it!
what I miss?  Nothing.at.all
what I'm looking forward to: Enjoying the rest of this pregnancy and just letting lil miss Claire grow and meeting her in September. Ohh and decorating her nursery too!

I'm hoping to hit up some yard sales this weekend. It's safe to say that I'm OFFICIALLY dying to get my hands on some good deals and some baby girl clothes! Being pregnant during the summer does have an advantage, though this may be the only one, and it has to do with the fact that it's yard sale season! Babies grow so quickly and I would really hate to have to buy ALL of her clothes brand new. Not that I mind spending money on my baby, let alone my first born, but is it really necessary? Nah. At least I don't think so. I know that I can find some super awesome deals and even more adorable clothes for this lil peanut. 

My mother is an avid Goodwill shopper and I can't wait to see what she'll find over the next 4.5-5 months. She goes at least once a week, on Sundays mostly. She will shop that week's sale which I think is like 50 cents an item (of a particular color tag). You should see my mother's wardrobe. Good Lord, you would NEVER know that she shops exclusively at Goodwill!

 Have a wonderful weekend!
