oh hey friday | 20 weeks, gender reveal + more

OH! Hey Friday!
It's been a super duper fun week.
Before I get started, just a big THANK YOU to everyone for all of the birthday love. 
You all know how to make a girl feel special! Muah!

Now, let's just hop right into the good stuff. 

1 | ultrasound
I had my big 20 week ultrasound yesterday.
Assuming all goes well, it will be the last time I "see" this precious babe until it's birthday.
Everything was healthy and looked great.
Baby is even measuring a few days "ahead" of due date.

2 | stats

how far along | 20 weeks - half way there!

size of baby | The baby is supposedly the size of an artichoke… or the length of a banana. My app says that baby should weigh about 10 ounces… according to ultrasound it weighs 12. I wonder if this is a sign that I will have an 8+ lb baby. It also says that baby is most likely sprouting hair… which in my children's case - didn't really happen. #baldbabies

weight gain | 7 total - if you're counting, like me, that's four pounds in the last month… or more like this week. I don't think that my birthday did me any favors.

gender | unknown! The ultrasound tech had me look away when she got to the legs. She did say it was for sure one gender though, so that's nice.

feeling | I feel great! Keeping really active, and enjoying actually being able to move and not waddling yet.

craving | No real cravings. I can eat whatever and whenever though. I would say that sweet things are still my favorite.

sleeping | SO tired. I have fallen asleep on the couch multiple times in the last couple of weeks. I usually head to couch and look through my phone while I wait for the boys to fall completely asleep at night before I hop on the elliptical. And then, before I know it, I am startled awake usually hours later when my farmer comes home. Oops. 

movement | This little babe is active. The ultrasound tech commented a lot about it today in fact. 
It is super fun to feel the wiggling. Plus Ryan and Brody have both been able to feel some kicks.

3 | gender 
I did so good at the ultrasound, and didn't find out.
This is an all time first for me. 
I am all about finding out anything and everything at the very first possible moment.
Seeing as though this is most likely our last babe, I thought it would be fun to find out with all of our friends and family at the same time. 

4 | reveal
You guys, I can barely contain myself.
{Invite made by the lovely Karli - if you haven't had her make an invite/party decor for you, you're missing out! She's got a new site coming soon that you should totally check out.}

Also, you all know that I am ALL about throwing a party.
But when one of my best gals Jenn asked if she could head up the party with another best gal, I was all over it.
Zero stress and planning is fine by me.
The only thing that I am doing is making the actual reveal… I'm just not stuffing it. :)
Stay tuned for the news!
If you're not following me on instagram, you might want to.

What do you think it will be?
Did you vote in the upper right hand corner of my blog?

5 | serial
This is totally off topic, but have any of you listened to the podcast Serial?
I know I am like 6 months late on this, but I am suuuuper addicted.
I started yesterday, and am already on episode 8 of 12.
If you have listened, no spoilers!
DId you get as obsessed with it as me?

Ok friends, now it's your turn!!!

  10. How exciting! I read this post and it was a bit of deja vu, it felt like I was reading about our week. We had our 20 week ultra sound recently and are doing our gender reveal this weekend too. Unlike you though, I couldn't hold out and opened the envelope at home with my husband when we got home.

    Hope everything goes perfectly for you with the party and congrats!

  11. 1. I'm in love with the invite Karli made you. She is making stuff for Caleb's 1st birthday and I can't wait to see it!
    2. I think you are having a girl, can't wait to see if I am right tomorrow from IG :)
    3. SERIAL! Can't believe you haven't listened yet, but I am glad that you are blowing through it! It's so addicting! I can't wait for the new season to come out this Fall! :)


  12. Omg! I cannot imagine the amount of followers you are going to get on IG because we are all DYING to know the gender! I am SO excited for you and cannot wait to hear. So fun!
    Also, I just got a new job and have never worked a desk job before. Needless to say I have been a bit bored and jumped on the podcast wagon. Serial was one of the first things I listened to. So good!!!

    Have a great weekend! Thanks for hosting a link up!

  13. Loved Serial and even listened to some of Undisclosed. I'm actually going to see Sarah Koenig speak about Serial (and maybe give us a sneak peek into the upcoming season!) this Saturday and I'm SO excited!

    I do what I want.

  14. Haven't been on your blog in awhile!!! Congrats on the new addition to be!!! BEst wishes!

  15. I can't wait to find out whether you are having another boy or a girl! I hope it's a girl, well my guess is that it is a girl but my guessing game is awful so I wouldn't bank on it haha! Nothing better than letting someone take the stress of party planning and all you have to do is show up and make the actual reveal.

  16. I keep hearing about Serial...I'll definitely have to check it out! I'm so excited for your reveal! How nice you don't have to do any of the work! Happy weekend!

  20. Oh so exciting! Looking forward to hearing about the gender reveal! :)

  21. uhhhh it's a boy. I'm 99% sure lol I swear whenever the tech says they def. know that because they see manhood! I also secretly hope it's a boy :) #houseofboys yoooo! Also...SERIAL dudddeeee! The addiction is INSANE! I legit get why she got so obsessed with looking into the case! I googled things for HOURS after it ended!

  22. Loved serial!!! Congrats, so exciting! 😊
