20 weeks

How many weeks:  20 weeks, oh Lord - is this possible? 

How am I feeling:  nervous, anxious, ...dare I say, gulp, happy

Doctor’s Appointment: not until NEXT Friday - oh I hope my nerves will let me make it!!  
I see the MFM on the 25th.

Weight Gain: 3 lbs

Maternity Clothes: maternity pants, some maternity tops, mostly flowy summer dresses & jeggings!!  :0)

Baby Preparation: garage sale tomorrow to cleanse all the junk that has piled up in the nursery over the last two years.  I'm excited to have the room all cleaned out.  We have also registered at a few places - Target, Babies-R-Us....  seems surreal to me....

Gender: precious baby boy (confirmed on 3 separate u/s - so anything different would totally catch us off guard LOL)

Sleep:  Sleep has never been a problem with any of my pregnancies.  I think it's because of the Prometrium.  :0)

Best moment this week:  being pregnant.  :0)

Movement: Feeling him all the time.  He's so active!  I love it!!

Food cravings: Still salty foods, peanut butter esp.  I cannot eat enough Reese cups unfortunately!

What I miss: not being so sensitive to smells

What I am looking forward to:  Today - this is the 'official' half-way point.  I'm excited that now I can say only 19 weeks left, instead of I'm 19 weeks....  Makes me feel like we are on the downward side of the hill.  :0)

Milestones:  April 15th...24 weeks...Viability day!!

Wow!!! Time really flies when I see my dear BLM's pregnancies... I am sure it's not so easy for you waiting for these milestones to pass. What joy it is to feel your baby boy move!
