20 weeks pregnant!


Well, here we are! 20 weeks pregnant today. This is officially the half way point!!

My belly is really starting to stick out now. John said that over the past week I have really "gotten pregnant". I can't sleep on my stomach anymore. My back is aching a bit still. I have to pee more often now. It's a bit disappointing when it feels like I have to go really bad, then I sit down and the pee only lasts 4 seconds. Mama said "Just wait.." as in This ain't nothin' yet.

I used to have a pretty cute belly button. I really liked my belly button. I thought it was a flattering belly button. It used to look like this: Now it looks like this: O Pretty soon it will probably look like this: X And then after the baby comes, it will look like this: & Hehe.

John felt the baby move for the first time on Tuesday! I was laying in bed with my shirt up, just staring at my belly waiting for movement. The baby was pretty active so I was hoping to witness some surface movement. John was laying next to me. The baby started poking around my belly button (which now looks like this: O ) and I grabbed his arm and pointed to my belly. I didn't want to say anything or move at all, hoping she would stay there and keep poking. John put his hand on my belly and the baby cooperated and gave his hand a nice kick!

I love feeling her move about inside of me. Being pregnant is still pretty unreal to me, to be honest. It's hard for me to imagine actually having a baby. I don't think that reality will set in until the baby is actually born. Or maybe during labor.. that might be somewhat of a wakeup call, no?
