ok, taking a break from hawaii photos today for a quick "baby post". i was 20 weeks on sunday.
i can't believe i'm halfway through this crazy, wonderful process. i'm sure the first half goes by quicker than the next half since i can still touch my toes just fine and do just about everything normal. the next part may get a little trickier :)
we went in for our 20 week appointment on monday with the big ultrasound, and baby girl was just that- big! she was huge! apparently about 9-10 inches long when she spreads out and about 12 ounces. i can't imagine how she's even fitting in there. i've been hearing it a lot but have been kind of start to feeling it myself- i'm still not looking quite pregnant and i was sure at this point i'd be a regular old pot-belly pig! however, the scale says differently! as of 20 weeks i've gained about 9-10 lbs, and i've definitely noticed it!
although, it doesn't seem like there's a ton of room in there, apparently she's happy as a little clam because she was movin' and groovin' like nobody's business during the ultrasound. she was practically having a dance party right in front of us and it was possibly one of the most amazing things i've ever witnessed. the ultrasounds may get more boring after you've had one or two, but for any of you first-time mother's i'm sure you can agree that it is by far one of the most amazing feelings to be able to see what happening in there. if the kicking wasn't enough to make me feel like she was more real than ever- seeing her was the icing on the cake. sorry, i could probably blab about it all day but i'll keep it at that.
oh, and hey, this is what i wore to my 20 week appt. :)
