I cannot believe I am half way through my pregnancy. I must admit it has gone by really fast and so far have been blessed with a pretty easy pregnancy. Today we had our 20 week ultrasound! Since we are having a gender reveal it was really hard not to find out the sex today. Instead we had our envelope ready for the technician to write the gender and sealed it so that there was no peeking involved on the car ride over to the godmother-to-be's house.
The really exciting part was this was the first time since 6 weeks that Chris got to see the baby. For some reason Chris has either been sick, stuck at work or something crazy happened to prevent him from coming on those days. But today was priceless. Watching him absorb the experience was an absolute delight and being able to see 10 fingers, 10 toes, the spine, brain, lips, nose and even get to see the baby yawn was more than he/we ever expected! Our baby is definitely a wiggle worm. The technician had to move quickly since our baby just couldn't seem to keep still. We loved every second of it!!! And the ear to ear grin on my hubby's face was the icing on the cake. I think we have both been on cloud 9 all day!
How far along? 20 weeks. Half way there!
Maternity clothes? Everything is in maternity! I think I am stocked for the summer but we will see. Just spent a fortune at Motherhood Maternity the other day but at least it is all comfortable and cute.
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Sleep: Finally got the pregnancy pillow down and wow has it helped. Still getting up 3 or 4 times a night to pee but I don't think there is an end in site for that.
Best moment this week: getting to see the baby today and seeing Chris' reaction.
Miss Anything? laying out by the pool with a cold, alcoholic beverage
Movement: all day long and sometimes at night. This is one active baby!
Food cravings: oatmeal cream pies, sour patch kids and steak.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, been really blessed
Gender: the big reveal will be this Sunday! Oh the suspense...
Labor Signs: Way too early.
Symptoms: nothing crazy
Belly Button in or out? In, but its really wide and I can see all the way through it. Very odd!
Wedding rings on or off? On but not for long. With the summer heat in Houston, my fingers are starting to swell.
Mood: I really couldn't be happier!
Looking forward to: the big gender reveal this Sunday! Handsome boy or sweet little lady?
Stay tuned for the big reveal on Monday!!! Happy weekend!
