Halfway there....what's between it's legs?

How far along: 20 weeks --- halfway there!  I never ever ever thought we would be here

Size of baby: banana?  weird

Physical symptoms: Constipation, huge boobs (finally had to bite the bullet and buy a new bra).  Thank you to those that gave me suggestions for my itchiness...I am using cocoa butter and it feels great

Weight gain/loss: 12-ish pounds

Maternity clothes: Yup, love them.

Stretch marks: Boobs only

Sleep: Better as long as I am able to find a good position.

Best moment since last week:  Our 20-week scan today.  Baby is measuring about 4-5 days ahead, so we are right on track.  It was crazy to see the whole skeleton, the brain, everything.  Pure heaven.

Movement: A couple flutters here and there that may have been gas...the little peanut was moving tons in the scan, and I couldn't even feel it.

Cravings/Aversions:  Same.

Gender: Boy!!!!  I was sure it was a girl, so I was shocked when the tech told me.  And I had her check twice just to make sure.  No mistaking it...he is ALL boy haha

Labor signs: nope

Belly button:  stretched-out innie

What I miss:  Booze, sleeping on my back, walking up stairs without losing my breath

What I am looking forward to: All I want to do right now is buy little boy things....but I know I should wait for my shower.


  1. I'm glad that things are going so great for you! Amazing feeling

  2. What a great appointment! I would be right there with you wanting to buy all sorts of little boy things :)

  3. Congrats on a boy :-) So glad everything is going well for you.
