They're multiplying!

I'm so incredibly excited to announce that Hudson is going to be promoted to big brother in June! We've decided not to find out what we're having, and I can honestly say I just want a healthy baby. Two little boys will be so much fun and having a girl would be amazing. Either way, we're very lucky.
 

TWENTY WEEKS

Weight gained:1.5 pounds

Workouts: 10 weeks in I started wearing my FitBit - averaged 12,500 steps per day for December and January. In January I also started a squat challenge, and am doing 75 per day. I am trying to make it to the gym a few times a week for some light lifting - nothing too strenuous. 

Labor Signs: None, thankfully.
Symptoms: I feel 30 weeks pregnant with how I am sleeping and the bump! It probably didn't help that I only lost half the weight I put on with Hudson, so I began this pregnancy much heavier.
Movement: Felt movement a few days before 20 weeks (similar to with Hudson). My placenta is in the front so that means I won't feel as much movement. I forgot how amazing the flutters feel!
 
Food Aversions: none

Food Cravings: none
Sleep: See above. Using snoogle (never stopped after I had Hudson . . . haha).

Stretch marks? None so far, but I am sure I will get a few new ones. With Hudson I got some on the sides and a few on the stomach. They are light and don't bother me.
 
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my stomach, a cold cider and coke zero (exactly the same as last time!)
 
Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: Half way mark is exciting, but still so far to go. It's nice this time around because some of the moms from mothers' group are also pregnant (we can complain together). We have a girl's name picked out and are down to the top 2 for boy names!
 
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
 
Wedding rings on or off? Off. I had terrible swelling last time and got carpal tunnel. I am really afraid it's going to be worse this time!

Happy or moody most of the time: Very happy, and nervous to add another to the mix because things have gotten into such a good place with Hudson.
 
New Baby Items: None yet. I plan to limit the buying until after the baby is born.
