Pregnancy Update: 20 Weeks Pregnant and Halfway There

I am aware that this blog has been suffering severely since I got pregnant. Sorry. But Now that I am finally feeling good, I expect to be posting more frequently again. I am also excited about getting back to posting about our weekly date nights. Just know that recently, Friday nights have gone something like this:

Brad: I have this really great plan for date night!
Kailei: Sounds great! But… (runs to the bathroom to be sick)
Brad: So... movie at home?
Kailei: (queasily) looks like it…

Brad has been a great sport about all of this! And the great news is that my nausea and vomiting are a thing of the past! We are going on 3 weeks now of not being sick! Life is good. 

So here is the skinny on this pregnancy.

First, I will say that I am a little self conscious about some of these things… but with the family far away and their wanting to know these things, I decided that I could do at least one pregnancy post. If you aren’t even kind of interested, feel free to leave for now and check in on the weekends to see what we are up to!

How far along: 20 weeks today!!
Maternity Clothes?: Nope! But hopefully soon… I actually really want to need maternity clothes. I mean… I am half way there! I think I’ll go get some this week. My jeans are starting to get a bit snug.
Stretch Marks: Also Nope! Maybe once I start growing some more…
Sleep: Bleh. Not so hot. It’s not so much that I’m uncomfortable, but I’ve been having leg cramps and then when I do get to sleep, I have some pretty nasty nightmares. And then there is the fact that I have to pee a few times a night…
Have you told family and friends?: Yep! Which is why you’re reading this. If you missed the announcement, check it out HERE.
Best moment this week: Being able to go out on Friday night and still have enough energy to clean the house on Saturday! I know it seems silly… but it was SO great to not feel like I had to rest and sleep all day on Saturday to recover from a busy week. Energy levels are on the rise!
Movement: Yes! Nothing super distinctive, but just general flip-flop feelings in the tummy. It’s fun.
Cravings: Not really anything I’ve been craving recently. Some things just sound like they will settle well. Like eggs. But no recent real “cravings” to report.
Anything make you sick/queasy?: Anything fried. It’s just bad. Even after the nausea has “passed,” I just have no desire to eat anything fried. Up until about week 14, almost everything made me queasy. Except eggs. And bread. So egg sandwiches were a staple.
Have you started to show yet?: I feel like I am finally at a point where I look like I have a baby bump and not just like I have gained 5 pounds. Then again, a lady at church on Sunday told me that she couldn’t even tell I was pregnant… so who knows. I definitely think I’m showing!
Gender Prediction: For a long time I was feeling boy. But recently, I’m feeling girl… And Brad was feeling girl and now he’s feeling boy… so who knows. But we find out for sure on Thursday!!!!!
Happy or Moody?: Most of the time, happy. But every now and again, I get this mean streak…. I really don’t mean to. And I try to stop myself and just can’t… then I apologize and feel bad. But 95% of the time, I am happy and nice!
Looking Forward To: The anatomy scan on Thursday!!! We are beyond excited to finally stop saying “the baby” and be able to say he or she!!! Speaking of that… it’s time to make your guesses! What do you think? Boy or Girl? Guesses in the comments below!


  1. I guess a girl! Haha I remember I felt soooo huge then...and now, every week you get to look back and say, "Man I thought I was huge then--look at me now!" haha! So glad your sickness has worn off and you're getting energy back, even though the sleep gets harder.. Best of luck with everything!!

  2. So excited for y'all! I hope it's a girl, just because little girls have the cutest clothes! But I'm going to take a wild guess that you're having a boy.

  3. I'm so happy for you both! I'm guessing a girl....but little boys are sweet, too! :)

  4. We are totally pregnancy buddies- I'm 20 weeks along and finding out the gender this Wednesday! So fun! I love hearing baby updates and am so excited for you. I'm guessing girl!
