20 week baby #2 bump update


tuesday- 3miles on TM + shoulder workout

It felt so good to run again after a few days off. I love running when I’m pregnant because I don’t have to worry about time at all and I just do whatever pace feels good. Unfortunately, that means it takes me a lot longer to run than it used to, but I’m just grateful I can be active.

Baby girl is definitely making an appearance these days. I love it!

20 week bump update(baby #2)

I’m thinking of doing updates every 2 weeks until I get a little further along. So below is info is from the last 2 weeks. Baby bump updates from weeks 14, 16, 18.

Maternity Clothes? Not yet. Still fitting in my low rise stretchy H&M skinny jeans. They’re so comfortable and stretchy I’m hoping to wear them until short/capri weather. When it comes to tops, I’ve been wearing my loose shirts because they’re more comfortable.

Sleep: I have been sleeping great. I occasionally have to get up and use the bathroom, but not often. I caught a pretty nasty cold so that kept me up a few nights last week. But overall the last 2 weeks have been great.

Best moment this week: I got to see baby girl again! I had my 20 week ultrasound and got some cute pics. She was all curled up on my bladder(explains all the bathroom breaks during the day) and wouldn’t let us see much. Everything looks great and she’s measuring right on track with her Aug. 12th due date.

Movement? Yes! I feel her a lot and I love it. I can even feel her little kicks on the outside but they’re pretty subtle and not often so Josh or J haven’t felt her yet.

Anything making you queasy? I haven’t felt queasy at all which is such a blessing. I feel really good, so I’m just enjoying being pregnant. I can sometimes get a little dizzy if I don’t eat right when I’m hungry.

Food Cravings: I crave all. the. foods. I think I have definitely gained a huge appetite these past 2 weeks. Luckily, I crave fruits like mango and plums. Plums are really good right now so I have been eating those like candy. I’m also loving anything salty; pickles, olives, salt and vinegar chips, and fries.

Fitness: My fitness has been pretty regular. I feel really good running and lifting weights so that’s what I’ve been sticking too. It feels really good to move my legs, stretch, and be active. I’m so grateful for my treadmill because some days she’s right on my bladder and I have to use the restroom a lot. Yesterday though, I ran 3 miles without any breaks, it was great!

are you a salt and vinegar chip fan?

if you could have any snack right now what would it be?

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
