20 Weeks: What I Know Now

20 Weeks: What I Know Now


  1. All my pants shrunk
  2. The popular ‘Kids Meal’ will heretofor be called the “Kids/Prego Meal”. I crave cheese, and kids know how to do cheese right: grilled cheese, mac ‘n cheese, quesadillas…
  3. 3 of my good friends are pregnant which is more than awesome. I lent my pre-pregnancy pants to one of my friends so she can wear them DURING her pregnancy, which is less than awesome.
  4. After watching several episodes of “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant,” I’m scared to go to the bathroom.
  5. Half-way there and I’ve only gained 8 lbs. {I know, don’t burst my bubble, I’m enjoying it while it lasts}.
  6. I have a headache at the same time everyday. Hormones, my doctor says. Only Tylenol or Diet Coke can cure it.
  7. My little boy doesn’t like it when I sit down. He leaps into all sorts of acrobatics while I’m at my desk at work, watching television, or doing my precious crossword puzzles. I guess he feels that I should be working on his room instead.
  8. That same little boy kicked for what felt like 8 hours straight one day. Toward the end of the day I was feeling annoyed by this constant motion, then cried all night for being a horrible mother who is annoyed when her perfectly healthy baby wants to tell me he’s here and is ready for me to sign him up for team sports.
  9. If my pre-pregnancy panties were XL, where do I go from here?
  10. I still haven’t puked once. {Did I just jinx myself?}
  11. I’ve been having wild dreams. My husband tells me how I talk of all things crazy: giftwrapping and giggling, in the middle of the night.
  12. I had a dream that the baby kept sticking his little precious arm out of the top of my shirt so I would hold it because he was scared. He had a name in this dream too! *secret*
  13. When I bend over, I emit an involuntary grunt {you were scared of where I was going with that, weren’t you}.
  14. I understand crawling babies in jeans, but I just don’t get newborns in jeans… what am I missing? Okay, yes, it’s adorable, but can they really be comfortable with that muffin top? {I know I’m not}
  15. I’m in the “honeymoon phase” where, for the most part, I feel normal. I had been feeling crampy and achy for about a week, and it didn’t go away until I tried a pair of maternity pants on in the dressing room. I guess if mom weren’t cramming her roly poly-ness into her normal jeans, this could have been avoided.
  16. This week, the ultrasound technician said each one of these phrases: “hyper baby”, “exhibitionist”, “playing with his ***”, “wants to keep showing me his ***”, “is that a gun show?” and then finally, the words I longed to hear: “head size on the smaller end of the spectrum”.

    Sounds like the pregnancy is going swimmingly. Congrats. And you make a gorgeous pregnant lady!

    You look great and i am so glad the pregnancy is going so smooth for you.

    For the panty dilemma…I picked up XL Maternity thongs at Old Navy for dirt cheap. They did the job :)

    Oh Brookie – you’re making me laugh. I read an article once that said “Boys suck the life out of mom both in and out of the womb.” It’s true. CONSTANT motion! And just when you get him settled down, Dad comes in to start wrestling. And I know you’re husband…you’re in trouble!

  5. Miss B. said: November 11, 2009 at 11:28 am

    Oh I just LOVE these updates!!! I so hope you save these in a book for your baby to read (or his future wife!) #4 was HILARIOUS!


    Miss B.

    You are cracking me up. Thanks for paving the way for me.

  7. Whitney said: November 11, 2009 at 2:13 pm

    You are funny.

    Not to “burst” one of your bubbles… but it isn’t the head you should be worried about – it is the shoulders. Just sayin’.

    You look really cute. And 8 pounds! I do that in the first two months – serious.

  8. Kelly Gray said: November 11, 2009 at 2:21 pm

    so cute :) A little note on the panties….I am not a huge fan of motherhood maternity BUT, i LOVED the pregnancy underwear…..toward the end I was no longer wearing thongs (it just felt wrong, LOL), plus I didn’t want to ruin all of my pretty little VS undies…..so…Motherhood panties it was…and they come in all sizes!!! Cant wait to see some nursery updates…..i love your colors!

    I was laughing at #11, among several others. You’re doing great though and you don’t even look that far along.

  10. Susan said: November 12, 2009 at 11:14 am

    I have so much to say about your list… But I’ll spare you for now. I just want to say that you look adorable in the above picture! I love how it’s really a very vintage looking photo.

    @Whitney – your comment made me laugh out loud. Too Funny.

    @Ariel & Kelly – Maternity Underwear?!?! I dunno girls. The word “Frumpy” is coming to mind…

  12. Ms. Stork said: November 12, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    You crack me up! My little girl moved constantly in the womb. She hasn’t stopped since either. On a side note think of all the exercise you will get chasing around the little guy!

  13. Kelly Gray said: November 13, 2009 at 9:16 pm

    believe me….when you get further along in your pregnancy, you wont care about “frumpy, it will be more about comfort :) PLUS, they are PERFECT for when you deliver…not going into detail on the blog, but just trust me!

  14. Christine said: November 15, 2009 at 12:08 am

    Just stumbled upon your blog last night as a link from Making It Lovely. I’m 19 weeks pregnant this week and find myself nodding my head to everything you have posted. Great blog. Picking up some useful ideas for decorating our new house.

  15. Laura B said: November 16, 2009 at 5:42 pm

    Oh Brookie, you still look amazing!

    And you can have some of my not-even-close-to-being-pregnant pants and then you will feel awesome again!

  16. kathryn said: November 19, 2009 at 10:48 pm


    I had no idea you were prego! congratulations! So excited for you :)

  17. sarah said: February 5, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    Ooooh, you’re lucky. At our 27 week appt I just heard the words NO ONE longs to hear: “Ooh, his head’s on the large end of the spectrum.” GREAT…should be good fun.
