20 Weeks with Baby #3

I haven't given a pregnancy update, so, here I am - 20 weeks along with baby #3!

I was concerned about this pregnancy from the very beginning. I was exhausted with Nathan (I don't even remember my first trimester with him. I was asleep for three months) and I felt sick all.the.time with Selah. However, with this one, I haven't been as tired as I thought I would be, nor have I been as sick as I was with Selah. I'm thankful to God for giving me the grace to make it through what has always been the hardest trimester with relative ease. Some updates....

I'm feeling movement. By far, the greatest part of pregnancy is feeling those little kicks and nudges. Baby
is pretty much quiet for the most part, but I feel a little reminder every so often each day that he/she is alive and well and enjoying the coziness of my womb. I have to say, it's reassuring for me. For some reason, I felt like I might miscarry early on, but I'm so grateful to God for a healthy report at each doctor's visit and for, now, the movement I feel every day.

No weight gain yet. Totally fine with that, too. I feel as though I've gained 20 lbs, but I've actually gained only one pound. I'm not worried, though.

Morning sickness is history and my dizziness that I struggled with is more or less gone too. Now, I'm just dealing with headaches, which has been common in each of my pregnancies. I'm trying not to take any Tylenol unless I absolutely have to. Instead, I'm soaking my hands and feet in warm water, taking bubble baths with Lavender Essential Oils, and drinking lots and lots of water. Oh and I'm resting when my kiddos nap. Those things help. :)

No, we don't know the gender yet. BUT, Lord willing, we will know if this baby is a little boy or a little girl on the 25th, one week from now! To say I'm anxious is an understatement. As it stands, the highest vote is for a boy. We'll find out soon!

During my first pregnancy it was extremely high risk and I had to drink about a gallon of water a day. Once I started that my headaches were gone. I've had daily headaches since I was a little so a week or two without one was huge! I'm just a little ahead of you in pregnancy! I'm a little over 23 weeks.
