My update

How far along? 20 weeks 3 days

How do you feel? I feel hungry. I'm not craving anything in particular. I'm just feeling hungry. And when I get hungry, I get sweaty and irritable like I'm experiencing low blood sugar or something.

Shopped for baby yet? Absolutely. We have some clothes, some storage, and a changing table.

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? Hubby is handling it very well and has been very supportive. He's a bit of a worry wort, and he has a tendency to say, "Are you sure that's good for you? Are you sure you can do that?" I guess it could be worse. He could be one of those completely-not-interested husbands. Smile

Any special plans for the upcoming summer? I would really like to finish the baby's bedding. Maybe I'll try to visit my parents.

Cravings/Dislikes? No cravings. I had a slight aversion to salad for a while because it started to smell funny to me one week. Hopefully, it's gone so that I can eat healthy foods when I'm hungry instead of the opposite.

Weight gain so far? 10 pounds

How far along? 20 weeks 1 day :eek:

How do you feel? Depends on the day.

Shopped for baby yet? Nope. I have a ton already and we're waiting to find out the gender tomorrow. Wink

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? In the last 4 years I have been pregnant about 2 years total, so it kind of feels "normal" to us. Wink

Any special plans for the upcoming summer? Just going to the beach when we're able. DD1 starts preschool in the middle of Aug, so that should be interesting.

Cravings/Dislikes? No dislikes really (though last night I couldn't eat meat which was weird). All I'm craving are sandwiches, chicken, and japanese food. Though I'll eat just about anything. Wink

Weight gain so far?
Not sure. At my 16 week apt it was 1lb. I go tomorrow and I think I'm up to about 5 total. I've been eating everything in sight lately. Wink

How do you feel? So far I'm feeling pretty good. A lot better this time around than when I was preggo with DD. Starting to feel a lot hungrier, but other than that my energy is up!

Shopped for baby yet? No, not yet, though I'm in the process of setting up my registry. Might go grab a few cute things in the next couple weeks.

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? DH is doing great! He has been very supportive, helpful, etc. The only complaint is that we always need to have a discussion regarding having the AC on during cool nights...I need it on even if it's cool because I swear I am always hot and it always feels humid to me. He doesn't get it, though I did win last night's arguement and got the AC on :-D.

Any special plans for the upcoming summer? We are going to his fam's mountain house for 4th of July weekend...going again for a week sometime later in July. We also have 3 weddings to go to this summer!!!! Still have no idea what I am going to wear!

Cravings/Dislikes? My only dislike has been broccoli so far, but that had been the case the last pregnancy too, which is weird because I normally LOVE broccoli. With cravings, I have been wanting Wheaties, anything with ground beef, oranges, apples, and cottoncandy icecream.

Weight gain so far? About 7 lbs, but I have a doctors appt tomorrow so I will see...my scale at home tends to lie (and I have no problem with that Smile )

How do you feel? My pubic bone has separated in the front so I'm in quite a bit of pain but it hasn't put me down yet! Otherwise great... but I hate all the peeing!!

Shopped for baby yet? Absolutely!

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? My husband is wonderfully supportive and attentive. I am so blessed to have such an amazing man... he's a great dad and husband!

Any special plans for the upcoming summer? Baseball/swimming lessons, enjoying the beach and cottage.

Cravings/Dislikes? I cannot get enough chocolate!

Weight gain so far? Maybe 10 lbs?

How do you feel? pretty good. more energy to do things but then tire out or feel the pain/soreness later!

Shopped for baby yet? Not really. Just the garage sale find of the chaging table

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? Fine. This is our 2nd and he's always very loving

Any special plans for the upcoming summer? 2 week trip to Savannah, Ga. Haven't been "home" in over a year. Not looking forward to the humidity, but excited. That and LOTS of time at the local pool and tending to the vegetable garden

Cravings/Dislikes? I've been consuming massive amounts of fruit. I feel like a hound dog in the grocery store. My nose leads me to the peaches, strawberries, etc.

Weight gain so far? 9 -10 lbs.

How far along? 21 weeks today! (my ticker is wrong)

How do you feel? Great.

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? He is taking them in stride.

Any special plans for the upcoming summer? A few vacations, a little time in the sun, and just relax as much as possible

How do you feel? Great! I love being pregnant!

Shopped for baby yet? Just a tiny bit, a few sleepers, onesies, and a coming home outfit from the carter's outlet :). We already have everything we need though, so I don't plan on much more shopping.

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? For us this isn't really a change. I've been pregnant or breast feeding almost our whole marriage.

Any special plans for the upcoming summer? No nothing really. DH may have a big 4 week business trip this summer, but he's hoping to get out of it because of baby Caleb. The kids and I have nothing going on, lots of nesting I guess!

Cravings/Dislikes? Cravings- watermelon! And whatever other fruit we have around. Dislikes- Nothing consistent. Sometimes the food around just seems yuck, but later it'll seem fine.

Weight gain so far? At my last appt I was up 1 lb. I'm sure it has gone up though, I've been hungry!

How do you feel? Okay. I've had some pain, checking in with the OB tomorrow to be sure it's okay.

Shopped for baby yet? A little. Bought some blankets and a sleeper

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? Doing great Smile

Any special plans for the upcoming summer? Swim lessons with DD, gymnastics with DD, visiting a friend north of us, beach, hopefully sitting around some, too.

Cravings/Dislikes? I crave most fruit, chocolate in the evenings, and grilled meat. I don't dislike anything in particular other than sweet potatoes (which I normally love, but they taste like DIRT to me right now :/) though I do have moments when a food seems icky, but is fine later.

Weight gain so far? 7 lbs

How do you feel? Overall, pretty good. Running around on my feet 40+ hours a week is starting to take a toll, but not having the same complications as with dd.

Shopped for baby yet? Yes, just a few outfits. All of dd's 0-3 will work its a mix of warm and cool weather clothes. It's cold weather 3-6 month that I need, and it's the wrong time of year to find it.

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? DH is doing great ... I need to ask him if he wants the girls to share a room or if we're cleaning out the spare bedroom, and get on him to help pick out a name ... we thought we had a girls name, but we both don't think it quite fits anymore.

Any special plans for the upcoming summer? Going out to my inlaws for a week at the beginning of Aug, lots of time at the zoo, and probably starting mat leave mid-late aug.

Cravings/Dislikes? Changes day to day ... the only thing I can't stand is the smell of pepperoni pizza and movie theater popcorn.

Weight gain so far? Down 6 pounds still Sad

How is DH/BF doing with all the changes? No real changes for us - excited that it's a girl, but life is pretty much the same. I think he's happy that my energy (and even more so my sex drive) is back up
