20 weeks!

So I promise I wont try and complain this whole time but the fun pregnancy symptoms have sprung on, not that feeling nauseous 24/7 was in anyway =). The two main ones that stick out are the bloody noses and charlie horses. I don't get a dripping bloody nose every day, there is just blood in there every morning and during the day a lot. I will occasionally get a bloody nose as well. I had about a week to a week and a half of getting charlie horses in the middle of the night EVERY night. It was awful, the weirdest thing I did not get with Cayden was where they were. I still had the traditional back calf one, but the two worst ones were the side of my leg and even my shin getting cramped up. When those happened, not only was it nice and painful but trying to figure out how to bend my foot to make it all better was not an easy task. Luckily out of no where they went away but my poor calves were sore for a while. I have also had the cravings start and I don't like this either because the main thing is sweets! I am already a BIG sweet tooth but to crave it pretty much every day is not fun. I have been able to EASILY start packing on the pounds which I of course don't necessarily like seeing either but by 20 weeks I was still at only 6 pounds but that came on in a matter of 4 weeks. Other than all of that my pregnancy has been great! I love feeling our little one move around and was sooo anxious to find out the gender!

You're too cute! Love your belly!

I still get bloody noses. It must be the dry area. I don't know.

Also, if you are still getting leg cramps, eat tums! they work wonders!!
