20 weeks…

Last Saturday I was 20 weeks pregnant- we are half way already!!  This indeed is SO hard to believe  since it feels like we just told everyone our wonderful news.  This pregnancy has been so different from Jay’s, not in how I am feeling or the growth (although my belly seemed to have made a much earlier appearance than it did with Jay) but in the fact that I frequently forget that I am pregnant at all!!  I know that this may seem nuts but frequently I reach for something on the ground and realize that it’s not as easy to bend as it used to be- huh? curious… Or I am talking to Jamie at the end of the day and just can’t for the life of me figure out why I am so tired- maybe the whole growing a baby thing might have something to do with that… or when I am on the ground with Jay it baffles me when it takes more than the usual time to hoist myself from the ground.  It’s funny how life changes and how different things can be from year to year. I love watching our family grow and I can’t wait to see what the next few months and years have in store for us…

Oh yeah- my favorite “surprise you’re actually pregnant” moment is definitely when I am not thinking about it and I am sitting or standing still for a minute and I feel the baby flip or kick.  It’s those “hey Momma, remember me” pokes I love the most :)

Here’s a photo of the belly, since we actually remembered to take it last weekend, growing as much as ever.  And yes, I know that it’s not a great photo.  In fact, it almost looks mugshot-ish but I really wanted to wear the same outfit for all of the bump photos this time around and for some reason I picked a black shirt so we are kind of committed now…

p.s. We also had our 20 week ultrasound today and this little one decided to not be camera shy ;)!  We’ll be back soon with some pink or blue news after we share with the family :)

  1. You look great! I wouldn’t have thought mugshotish until you said something, but it made me laugh out loud to think of a pregnant you in a mugshot.
