Sounds like a Fruit Salad

This is from Friday Morning. Not a very "pretty" picture, as I was sending it to my mom. Just noticing how much my belly is growing. I now look more pregnant than fat, wahoo!
Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 20 Weeks Today
Size of baby: size of a Cantaloupe! (and weighs 10.6 oz and is 6.5 inches long :)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Officially from the Doctor:  gained 6 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Wearing maternity pants, and some shirts. Regular T-shirts are starting to fit weird
Gender: Baby Dewey is either a Girl or a Boy :)
Movement: I've been kicked! The kicks are getting more frequent since a few days ago...what a feeling!
Sleep: Have been super tired and now starting to get uncomfortable
What I miss: Nothing really.
Cravings: Food?! I'm just hungry now. And have been on a grilled cheese kick this week.
Symptoms: None, but my hips hurt and have heartburn/indigestion.
Labor Symptoms:Nope
Milestone: Have 1 Doctor appointment this week; my regular Wednesday check-up.
Best Moment this week: Getting kicked! :)
What I'm looking forward to: My belly growing (more) and feeling movement!

That's right, I'm now officially a kick-boxing arena. Baby has been kicking me throughout the night, when I was working nights. Mainly when I sit up straight I can feel it right where my pants come to my belly. I think Baby is stretching out a lot more. Testing out the room in there! 

Sleep has gotten harder and more uncomfortable. I've always been a back sleeper, love it, but now I can't do that. Too much weight and it will cut off blood flow for me and for Baby. Sleeping on my side makes my hips hurt. I've been using a pillow between my legs but it doesn't help. I even went to get a body pillow, but nothing. I wake up about every 3-4 hours to shift but it doesn't get any better.

Hard to believe that little baby is now almost 3/4 lb in weight?! And I'm already halfway, man does time fly! 

Have a wonderful weekend!
