Pregnancy Diary 3 || Twenty Weeks

First off, thank you for all the congrats and well wishes on our happy news of a healthy baby BOY! Everything looked great on the ultrasound, and we're on track for a mid July baby. There were quite the range of emotions when the gender was revealed. Aside from daddy, we all had our fingers crossed for a girl. The week leading up to the ultrasound Will kept saying, "I REALLY want it to be a girl, but I just know it's going to be a boy." He was right! It was so sad how disappointed they were, the sweet things. We keep talking up how great another boy will be, so I'm sure they'll eventually be fine with it. I'd be lying if I didn't say I was a little bummed at first, but in no time at all I couldn't imagine him being anything else!

I am 20 weeks, and 3 days. I finally realized this week that I am anemic. I've never dealt with anemia before, so I think it took a little longer to realize it than it should have. I just thought it was the normal pregnancy exhaustion lingering longer than normal, but I was starting to feel worse. I looked up the symptoms and I had all of them! Crazy tired, lightheaded/dizzy, headaches, rapid heart rate and trouble breathing. I started taking some extra iron, and I'm hoping I'll be feeling normal soon!

I have always carried my babies low, and especially this early on before I'm huge this is how I feel I look pregnant:

Yep, I carry my babies in my crotch. Here is the actual 20 week bump:

20 weeks pregnant with Sam.
