20 Weeks Pregnant

You have to face the fact that you are halfway through your pregnancy, and the baby is gonna be here before you know it.-Anne, The Secret Life of the American Teenager

-5 Months pregnant! Hurray! I cannot believe how big this belly has grown. I say that every update don’t I? Well, today I actually had a stranger comment on my belly while I was waiting for my progesterone shot, and asked if I was carrying a girl. I can’t blame her-I think my belly is starting to get bigger up top. And down low. Well, pretty much everywhere. The kicker is I’m only halfway done baking this lil Piggy. I’m a little scared to think of what my full term pregnant belly is going to look like! I think the look on my face says it all:

woah

-The highlight of the week was of course the ultrasound Monday. The second highlight was getting Piglet’s baby shower invitations in the mail that I had ordered. I’m SOOOO excited about them. I will share them with you when the shower gets closer. I’ll give you a hint-there are owls. šŸ™‚

-I just picked up wooden letters to hang over Piglet’s crib. I am so happy that we’ve settled on a name, and it allows us to connect to him that much more. Now the challenge will be not calling him that around our friends and family. We want to have the name as a surprise for when we announce his birth, since everyone already knows his gender.

-The nesting instinct has been stronger and stronger. I’ve always been into home projects and organizing, but this week I’ve been in high gear. I’ve already attacked the garage and our front room. I really am loving this second trimester energy! I better take advantage of it while it lasts!

    So exciting! I can’t wait to hear what name you guys chose. And I’ll admit it….I’m starting to feel a touch of baby fever thanks to you. šŸ˜‰

    Love seeing the pictures of your growing tummy – pregnancy looks good on you šŸ™‚ I think it’s a smart move to keep your name secret (even though I’m dying to know it!) – it’s more fun for your family & friends if they don’t know ahead of time. Enjoy the nesting!!

    You look so incredibly beautiful!!!! I love the look on your face in the second one, too! ;o) I’m so glad you’re staying healthy, and if you pack on a few more pounds than you intended, who cares! You’ll have plenty of time to work it off later! That was my theory anyway… ;o)

    I couldn’t even keep the names a secret because I loved them so much.

    You look amazing! That is so exciting, I love watching your belly grow – I am feeling a little nostalgic and have baby fever at the moment haha.
    I can’t wait to hear what you are naming him! I wasn’t able to keep anything a secret, our families are very… insistent ;D

    Stacie

    Love it! and yes, we kept our name a secret and we had to really focus on not slipping up when we were around others, but it was fun to have that secret between just the 2 of us.

    I’m pretty sure that 2nd trimester energy is designed just so you can get stuff done because the last 10 weeks drain ya!
    You look adorable and I don’t think you’re that “huge.”
