Food Aversions: NONE
Symptoms: beginning of the week I felt really dizzy lots of spells, however, after Dr Appointment on Tuesday they did blood work and talked about my diet –going to try to eat more protein and fats hoping that helps.  My blood pressure was low which she said is normal but could be another reason why I’m having these spells.  Last half of the week I felt back to normal.

Week 20 Picture:


  1. girl, give in to the maternity pants, trust me, you will be much more comfortable. the liz lange by target ones are awesome and look like real pants. trust me, maternity clothes look better than squeezing your pregnant bod into clothes that don't fit. they are made to flatter the bump.

  2. hahaha I am sure I will soon enough but these that I am wearing in this picture are actually still to big lol they where old pants that didnt even fit me anymore pre pregnancy from weight loss! I am not afraid of being in maternity clothes I just dont want to spend the money!!!! #cheap
