My Expanding Belly

I started taking belly pictures a few weeks back, but I realized that I had failed to post any on the blog. Since this pregnancy is officially halfway over, it is high time I put some up.

And here are my stats for this week:
How far along: 20 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Yea, let's not talk about that.
Symptoms: Backache, Peeing all. the. time. Hyper-smell.
Maternity clothes: Absolutely.
Stretch marks?: 2 tiny ones right next to my belly button. They've been there 3 weeks with no additions, so maybe my new oiling method is working. Fingers crossed!
Sleep: Starting to get uncomfortable on my back now along with my stomach.
Best moment this week: Finding our we have a little girl!
Movement: Yes! Especially at night when I lay down.
Food cravings: Pickles and cupcakes.
Gender: 100% XX
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.
Milestones: Halfway to meeting her!

It's a.....


We were so happy to find out on Thursday that we are expecting a healthy baby girl. Of course, I already "knew", but it was nice to have documented proof. Here are a few of her shots from the ultrasound.

We have some names in mind for our little girl, but we are keeping them a surprise until she makes her big debut in July. Until then, we'll change her nickname from Bean to Beanette. She is a young lady after all.
