Half Way Home!

Friday was the 20 week mark - the official half way point of my pregnancy.  I felt like the first 8 weeks that I knew I was pregnant (weeks 4-12) went by so slowly - maybe it was the anticipation of getting to make the news public as well as getting out of the "risky" part of pregnancy.  But the last 8 weeks (from 12-20 weeks) has flown by.  I can't believe that we find out what we are having TOMORROW!  I'm so excited to get to see that baby on the ultrasound again.

Here are some updated belly pictures - I feel like I've gotten bigger over the last 4 weeks but the pictures don't make it seem as much as I think in my head...

12 weeks

16 weeks

20 weeks
How far along? 20 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: don't know - I'd guess 15-16 ish.  Afraid to find out the truth
Maternity clothes? Love them - don't think I want to go back to normal pants

Stretch marks? None on the belly, still only on my thighs.  I'm pretty sure I will never ever have thin thighs.
Sleep: Andrew was out of town on Friday night and I slept horribly.  Otherwise sleep has been pretty good.
Best moment this week: Feeling the baby kick at church when we started singing "How Deep The Father's Love for Us" after Communion.  Feeling the baby kick in general is pretty cool.

Miss Anything? It was Cinqo de Mayo this week - I would have loved a margarita.  I had a virgin one at home (strawberry margarita mix with club soda) but it wasn't the same.
Movement: Lots of kicks - especially after I eat.
Food cravings: Still digging cheese and fruit - goat cheese, parmesean, cheddar.  Mmmm, cheese.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I smelled really strong Indian food and it made me want to throw up.  I've never been a fan of Indian food anyway but pregnancy has made that aversion a little stronger
Have you started to show yet: I think so.
Gender: TBD - tomorrow!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In but getting shallower....
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: I feel like I'm in a good mood most of the time but I get overwhelmed a lot easier.  The last few weeks at work have been super busy and I feel like I get stressed a lot easier.

Looking forward to: Ultrasound tomorrow and finding out the gender of our baby.  I can't wait to start shopping for baby clothes, creating our registry, starting the nursery and planning for baby showers!

I'll post our big news tomorrow!
