Pregnancy Update Baby #2 – 20 Weeks

Pregnancy Update – 20 Weeks

We have officially reached the halfway point! I hope the next 20 weeks go a little faster.

The beginning of my 20th week has been a little rough, because I caught the flu or a stomach bug. Saturday afternoon I started feeling sick and then by 3:00AM I was nauseous, throwing up, and my whole body hurt. It couldn’t have come at a worse time because the next morning I was supposed to run the Chicago Spring Half marathon. Instead, I spend the entire day in bed. 🙁 I was really disappointed about missing the race, but I’m going to make it up by running Soldier Field 10 Mile this coming Saturday. It’s one of my favorite races so it’s all working out.

How far along? 20 weeks + 3 days

Due date? October 7, 2017

Baby’s size? Baby boy is as long as a banana!


Monday: Ran 2 miles + Stroller Strides
Tuesday: Ran 4 miles + Stroller Strides
Wednesday: 2 mile run + 2 mile + Stroller Strides
Thursday: 2 mile walk + Stroller Strides
Friday: Stroller Strides
Saturday: Ran 6 miles coaching CES
Sunday: Rest – no half marathon because I was sick.

Maternity clothes? I just started wearing the GABRIALLA Elastic Maternity Belt again while running and I started wearing a few of my maternity shirts that I wore while pregnant with Allie.

Sleep: I’m still sleeping great!

Best moment this week: Taking Allie to the Chicago Children’s Museum at Navy Pier. We were supposed to go to a Cubs game, but it was rained out so we went to the Museum and Allie loved it!

Miss Anything? Smaller boobs for running.

Movement: I can feel baby boy doing flips! I love it.

Food cravings: Pizza! We ordered Pequod’s pizza on Friday night and it was the first time I’ve ever had it. We ordered the thin crust and deep dish. I usually prefer thin crust, but the deep dish was outstanding!

Anything making you queasy or sick: The stomach bug that hit Saturday night.

Gender: Boy

Name: Baby boy for right now.

Symptoms: Needing 10 hours of sleep every night.

Belly Button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody: Happy, except when I was sick on Saturday.

Looking forward to: My next ultrasound.

    The “miss anything” answer cracked me up. I love your monthly blogs. They make me feel part of your pregnancy.

  3. I’ve heard of Pequod’s Pizza but never been there. So cool that you can feel the baby doing flips!!

  4. I always loved reading your updates. So fun that we are due at the same time. It makes it even more fun to see how things are going. Major bummer about the stomach bug. Glad you are feeling better. I was just thinking tonight how annoying pregnant boobs are!
