Woah, we're half way there!

Woah, livin' on a prayer.

So excited to reach the 20 week milestone.  For me, this is big.  24 weeks or viability week will be a milestone for me too.  I haven't been walking on egg shells but there's always a feeling of concern when you've had multiple losses in the past.  I'm so thankful to God.  So prayerful to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for keeping us healthy thus far.  I also feel like both of my grandmothers (who both had a slew of children) are watching over me. 

By the by, his name is official:  Dax Connery.  :-)  I'm so excited and cannot wait to meet this little guy.


Here's the 20 week Bumpdate in case you were interested...

How far along?  20 Weeks
Total weight gain:  still not gonna tell - luckily, it seems to be all baby related and not so much me ballooning up (yet).  Belly is big but measuring right on target.  Guess I just have a lot of new blood weighing me down??
Maternity clothes?  Yes and I need to do some more shopping.  I’m running out of things to wear.  And I hate maternity jeans.  So meh.
Stretch marks?  A few new ones
Sleep:  Still being a night owl even though I’m so tired.  The bathroom trips are tolerable - barely.
Best moment(s) this week:  Knowing I’m technically half way through!  Feeling Dax kick or punch for the first time.  I felt him move since about week 18 but the little kicks are pretty cool.  Felton just beaming at the anatomy scan.  He almost started crying when he saw Dax's little feet. 
Miss Anything?  Same ole’ same ole’.
Movement:
  Yes.  He’s up when I’m up and is pretty quiet when I’m sleeping.  That’s my dude!
Food cravings:  Cream cheese, sausage and Rotel dip – have not indulged but it sounds good.  More guacamole.
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Orange juice, unfortunately.
Gender:  Boy
Labor Signs:  No
Symptoms:  A few bouts of nausea – see orange juice above.  Feeling a bit off center when I walk.  Tired.   Linea nigra although very light in color thank goodness.
Belly Button in or out?  In
Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy but getting more and more emotional  lately.
Looking forward to:  Doing some shopping for this little guy and my next Ultra sound at 21 weeks with Perinatologist.
