20 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2

Week ending Nov. 14, 2017.
Due Date: April 3, 2018

Can you believe we're at the halfway point?! And I truly, truly hope this actually is the halfway point. I don't want this little guy coming too early like his brother tried to do!

My uterus is measuring ahead, it's like way above my belly button, which is where they say it should be at this point. And I can sure tell. I can't believe we're only halfway there and this belly is taking over!
Pretty sure I started feeling hiccups for the first time this week. It's just way too rhythmic for it to simply be kicks or other movements.

Doctor Appointment:
At MFM, I had my ultrasound and the doctor told me things were looking "better than great." My cervix was measuring 4 cm, which he said was awesome. I'm super happy about that. I even brought Cal to the appointment and it was a good 45 min. ordeal and he was super well behaved until the last two minutes when he was just totally fed up haha. I was so proud of him! :)
At my regular doctor we saw that baby is measuring about a week ahead and my uterus is measuring 22 cm at 19 weeks, 2 days. Baby Eren weighs 12 oz, they say. I know I'm technically measuring ahead, but I'm actually pretty happy with it. They say within 2 cm of your number of weeks is normal. So if baby's measuring a week ahead at 20 weeks, 2 days, and my uterus is at 22 cm, I'm going to technically call it normal. :)
Justin gave me his first injection of Makena and it actually went really well. We didn't like freak out about it for five minutes beforehand. I did put an ice cube on the spot before to help numb it a little but he totally shot me above the spot lol so that was pointless. 

Got my flu shot at my doctor appointment and I was feeling pretty sluggish afterwards.

Physical Symptoms:
Finally starting to retire some bras. They're getting too tight and driving me crazy but it's kind of a stupid situation too. I don't want to spend money on non-nursing bras since we'll be nursing soon enough, yet I want to be able to enjoy these few months of non-nursing bras. I just can't decide what to do. Why does the idea of wearing nursing bras when I'm not nursing bother me? Not like anyone else is going to notice...

Behaving myself better and tracking my calories. It seems to be paying off so far. I'm actually really proud of myself over this week.

Sleep & Dreams:
Dreamt Justin shaved Calvin's head. Man, was I pissed!
Dreamt about Calvin and Eren. Eren was less than 6 months old and Calvin was a big boy and we were trying to take a family photo. It's all getting so real!

Favorite Moments of the Week:
Justin puts Calvin to bed 99% of the time and let me just say he's the best ever. This week he began a new bedtime ritual where they walk to the bottom of the steps like they're going to bed, but then Justin tells Calvin to go give mom a kiss. So he runs over to kiss me, then goes back to the steps like he's going to bed, and Justin tells him to give me a kiss and he runs back again, back and forth a few times. It's pretty hilarious. Calvin will hesitantly start climbing the stairs, because he knows Justin's going to tell him to come back. Haha.

Random Thoughts:
I just can't wait to see my baby! I keep imagining what he'll look like. I imagine his hair color and eye color. If he's another baby clone of my husband or if I'll finally get a baby who even kind of looks like me. Haha.
