Ohhhhhhh we're halfway there.

So I've debated on doing this since basically the first ultrasound.  After much deliberation I decided that this baby is pretty much the biggest part of our life right now (besides husbands college, hunting and football season.. bahaha).  Thus... I want to share and document this pregnancy.  I am going to do it on an every other week basis.  Now that I feel like I am starting to look pregnant, not just overweight.. it will be fun to see baby grow from the outside.  Plus I know all my friends and family will love seeing the updates.

What Fruit are you?
A banana.

Due date:  
January 28th--although Rob says the 27th based on some number he saw on screen during our last ultrasound...

How far along:  
20 weeks.
Next appointment:  
Wednesday!

Gender:  
Girl.

Total weight gain/loss:  
As of last appointment I was up a pound and a half.  I am sure that will change on Wednesday.  Which is fine by me.

Swelling: 
None.. unless I spend all day on my feet.

Maternity clothes:  
Maternity pants for sure.  How come no one told me that they are so much more comfortable?? Still in my shirts from pre-pregnancy.
Belly button:  
In.  But I can tell my belly is getting bigger because last week I had to order a maternity belly button ring.  I'm being selfish and want to keep my piercing in as long as possible!!!

Sleep:
So-so.  I nap better than I actually sleep.

Food cravings:  
None really.  French fries always make me happy though.

Symptoms:  
My allergies are ridiculous ever since my trip back to Kansas.  Like.. open the back door and I am sneezing ridiculous.  Otherwise things are going smoothly.

Movement:  
Sometimes when I am laying on the couch I can feel her.  Nothing on the outside yet.. I can't wait for that though because I know the husband will be crazy excited.. and in awe.
Labor signs: 
None. Thank goodness.

What I miss:  
Laying on my belly.  Running errands all day without feeling completely wiped out.  And rum.

What I'm loving:  
The notion that I am creating a human!  It still seems so new.  Plus I love it when certain outfits flatter the belly.

What I'm looking forward to:  
Definitely the appointment Wednesday.  It seems like forever since we last saw her.  Even though it was just a month.  I can't wait for sure!

Best moment this week: 
Being done with my college education... I don't think it will ever get old knowing that I've completed my bachelor's degree!

Totally didn't realize until just now that I always face the same direction when holding the bump.

always,
