BUMPdate: 20 Weeks

Size of the baby?
the size of a banana (7 inches, 14 oz.) 
(I know, I realize now that I spelled banana wrong on my chalkboard)
Total Weight Gain/Loss?
15 pounds! I swear at least half of that weight has gone straight to my bum.
Maternity Clothes?
I got a pair of maternity jeans that I actually love. I'm wearing a Liz Lange maternity top here but aside from that, I'm living in leggings now.

Stretch marks?
None. I <3 cocoa butter!

Best Moments?
Our 20 week ultrasound yesterday. We got to see the baby moving all around, the little hands, feet, lips, and nose.

Lots of movement this week. I'm feeling lots of little kicks and sometimes it feels like the baby is doing somersaults in there.

Food Cravings?
Still craving sweets. Nutella. That's probably to blame for my weight gain too.

Anything making you queasy or sick?
Not really. I'm eating everything I would normally eat.

What I miss?
Being able to fit in my skinny jeans. 

None. The 2nd trimester has been great for me so far.

My stomach is a little itchy this week but I guess it's from the skin stretching.

Labor signs?
No way!

The gender is sitting in an envelope right now in the bakery. We won't know until we cut the cake at our gender reveal party on Saturday. 

Belly Button In or Out?
Still have an innie.

Wedding rings On or Off?
Still on!

I'm sleeping like a baby.

What I'm looking forward to?
Finding out the gender this weekend and spending time with our nearest and dearest at the party.


  1. So cute! Love it!

  2. They have skinny jeans in the maternity section! Did you know Ann Taylor has/had a maternity line! I was so upset when I found out after I had my second...guess I'll have to have one more :)

    1. Yes! Can you believe it?? I did hear about the Ann Taylor line but they don't sell it in the store near me so I'd have to buy online.

  3. So cute! So exciting! Have fun at the reveal party on Saturday!

  4. Aww, it's so nice to see your face in the last two posts you've done :) I think your little bump is precious!

    1. Thanks so much! I know I guess I should start showing my face more. When I take outfit photos I usually don't pay attention to my facial expressions so I usually crop them.

  5. I am so so excited to hear all about your gender reveal! You look AMAZING and I'm totally jealous of the "glow" you have! Keep me posted on if you find any cute new maternity clothes for fall. I epically suck at it!

    1. Thanks so much! I'll post all of the party details next week and I start trying to blog about my maternity outfits too.

  6. Adorable! I hope you have a great time at the party!

  7. you looks totally gorgeous! seriously you honestly have that glow. how exciting for you! i love the idea of a "gender reveal" party that will be so fun. xoxo sofie

    1. Thanks so much! Everyone is saying I have the glow and I haven't realized it myself but I guess it must be there.

  8. Yay for the first bump date! Schnelle - you're looking gorgeous! So glowy and pretty - and I love your hair color!

    Due to an old wives tale, I'm guessing you're going to have a girl...can't wait for your reveal :-)

    1. Thanks so much! According to most of the wives tales, I am having a girl. That's my guess too:)

  9. You look amazing! I can't to find out what you're having!!!

    1. Thank you! Me either! I'll keep you posted:)

  10. Oh my gosh I'm dying of anticipation! You have to message me after the get together!!!

  11. You look so adorable, and I love that you're doing the whole chalk board. It's just so cute. :)
