20 Week Bumpdate: Baby has a NAME!


It's official, Aiden is MiniSkinny's name :) Now you can stop suggesting names MOM. Kthanks. Funny story about this name; I've loved the name Aiden since Sex and the City, but Oliver watched that episode where he cheated on Carrie and he has a 'thing' about hating people who cheat. So when we were pregnant with Madison and trying to pick out a boy name we COULD NOT decide on a boy name, thankfully we had a girl.  Now, 4 years later I bring it up and he agrees immediately, forgetting completely his past dislike for the name. We couldn't agree on a girl name this time around, so I knew we were having a boy!

Here's a list of some of my must have items for the first half of my pregnancy.
  • a tiny blanket for my car so I can car nap the first 14 weeks
  • I popped pretty quick so maternity clothes by 10 weeks, but a bella band to keep them up nice and snug
  • Zofran for the bad days
  • Miralax for sure
  • Advocare Probiotic and OmegaPlex to help things along
  • Pretzels 
  • Bras in a bigger size, do not keep stuffing yourself in clothes that don't fit, it sucks.

Aiden is very active, I really don't remember Madison kicking quite this much. He's kicked me so hard I've jumped several times. Madison's felt him kick too, she's just so sweet all the time and kissing my belly :)





Oliver's still training for his first half, so we did 11 miles this weekend.


Running is getting hard, it's more my hips and back that really start hurting. I can't run without my support belt, you should see me waddle for the rest of the day, ugh. I'm trying to keep up my mileage for another month and then after the Dallas Half I think I will cut back to 7 or 8 on the weekends.



These maternity capri's from For Two Fitness are so freaking comfy, I've already ordered another pair. They are full panel, but can be folded down so I can use them after I give birth too. I've tried some from Gap and Old Navy and they are no where near as comfortable.

Twilight Sparkle and I spent the afternoon getting pedi's and grocery shopping. She's just so cute when she asks to go, I'm a sucker, what can I say :)

  5. I LOVE the name Aiden! I don't remember him cheating on Carrie just her cheating on him. I've always had bitterness towards her!

  10. Random question, do you take a prenatal vitamin along with the probiotic and omegaplex?
    Love the name. Aiden is so cute and I love using family names as middle names.

  13. CONGRATS!!!!! I love his name! (And your blog in general!) You are such an inspiration to me (and many others). I am currently down 40+ lbs and feel good but still dealing with body image issues. I still see myself as I was. I also did this as I gained weight (ha ha, I saw myself as "not fat" for a long time till I couldn't deny it anymore).
    Good luck on the rest of your pregnancy. And T.S. is sooooo stinking cute!
    FYI I look forward to your IG posts!!

  15. Congratulations! My baby's name is Aidan. So, just a different spelling. (Obviously). Love it! ;)

  16. Aiden NEVER cheated on Carrie. It was the other way around. I should know, I am an unhealthy addiction to that show :)

  17. So glad you shared the name... I been wondering.. Lol Luv the name. Madison is going to be the sweeetest helper ever.... Have a great week girl!

  18. Aiden is going to come out doing cardio! He'll be so used to having the blood pumping :) I can't get over the fact that you're out there running 11 miles.

    Once you have him, you will feel like a track star not having to carry a baby belly. You'll be flying!

  19. EEEKKK! Aiden is my baby boy's name! He's Aiden Michael (middle name after his daddy, too!). Not sure if you checked out the origins of the name, but it has Irish/Scottish roots and means "little fiery one."

    Best of luck to you and your "little fiery one." :)

  20. I have an Aidan, too! Love the name. And he didn't cheat...she did!

  21. Super cute name! And I lived on Zofran the first 15 weeks I was pregnant with Addy :) All day sickness finally seized at 17 weeks!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I LOVE LOVE LOVE.........did I mention LOVE his name!!!!!! You continue to be such a huge inspiration throughout your pregnancy!!! You are doing fantastic!!!

  23. Just a little FYI - Aiden didn't cheat on Carrie. She cheated on him! So if anything, Oliver shouldn't like the name Carrie…you know, if you have another daughter. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yeah, Carrie cheated, but Aiden didn't! Good name, though. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Congrats on choosing a name! We always liked the name Aiden too! I'm so impressed that you've kept up with the running. I was terrible and immediately quit, but as soon as our little girl arrives and I'm cleared, I'm planning on training again! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMG I've always loved the name Aiden too! I love it, Aiden Oliver.. so perfect! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Congrats on the new babe! Well, not yet, but soon to be new babe! Random comment, but I think Carrie cheated on Aiden (which is ridiculous, how could anyone cheat on him!?) so all the more reason for your hubby to be on board with Aiden- not his character's fault! Congrats again, keep up the great work on your blog.

  28. You barely look pregnant in these pictures!!! Your looking awesome. It would be great to see some comparison pics to what you looked like while pregnant with Madison. You are amazing, I don't know how you do it!!! Love the name!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Aiden is our 2-year-old's name and we love it! We spell it the same way too!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think he is thinking of the episode where Carrie and Aiden get back together and he is always hanging out with that female bartender that works at Scout (Steve's bar). He said he didn't cheat, but he thought about it. Which could very well be a lie, we don't really know. ANYWAYS Love the name! I really enjoy your blog, more so than some others out there that shall remain nameless. :)

  31. you seriously motivate me soo much! i couldn't really workout the first 18 weeks of my pregnancy because of the fact that i have very high risk pregnancy's but the dr officially cleared me to run 25 min a day! and even though it only ends up being two and a half miles it feels so good to just be able to do a little bit of something! you make women wanna be healthier!! and i truly appreciate that! now i just gotta find something that helps with my horrible runners nipple! TMI, sorry!

  32. I've jumped a few times, too. I got the "Um, I think the baby kicked my bladder so hard I peed my pants" kick twice in a matter of 5 minutes. Those kicks aren't quite as fun, lol.

  33. I love the name! I also love that you are still keeping fit! Keep up the good work!
