So Close To Half Way Done

I don't want to drive people nuts with my baby crazies, so I'm trying to limit my preggo posts to special occasions.  Special occasions like, oh, I don't know, maybe my HALF WAY MARK!!!

The reality truly set in when I finally figured the math . . . One week from tomorrow I will officially be 20 weeks along.  I find myself constantly researching the Googles in desperate need of ways to contain my excitement for Beh-beh Bee.  I have found that my favorite thing to do is read about other expecting mothers in the same giddy boat as me so we can cyber giggle and "LoL" together about the new transition slowly making its grand entrance into our lives.

With that in mind, this entry is about all my highlights over the past four and a half months.

I have LOVED every second of pregnancy so far, I confess, to a very creepy level.  It's probably abnormal to be grinning from ear to ear while you're hovering over the toilet because of morning sickness.  But every upchucked Cheerio has reminded me that this is really happening and that I finally get to have this baby.

The spicy and salty cravings have been unstoppable.  I eat like a hobbit now.  There's second breakfast and elevensies, first dinner and another supper later in the evening.  I think it makes Mitchell uncomfortable.  

The other day he was singing LOVE SHACK and changed the lyrics to something he found to be more appropriate.  
"I've got me a Chrysler, it's as big as a whale, and its name is my wife..."

Thanks sweetheart.

Most people liken their baby to the size to a fruit or a vegetable.  I have found it's a little more interesting to compare it to something it could fight with fair odds of winning, like a lady bug or a Lego.  Right now I would probably put my money on a successful TKO against a newborn guinea pig.  

At least the alien baby phase is over and it's starting to look more human.  This was from about 10 weeks ago...

The flutters are getting stronger.  It feels like a carousel spinning round and round in my stomach or random pieces of popping popcorn.  I have noticed that baby is most active when I'm at work, walking back and forth, or when I'm playing the piano.  And that makes me SO HAPPY.  We may have a music lover!

To sum everything up, this has been such a wonderful adventure.  Today I'm going in for an appointment and I'm trying to brainstorm how to bribe the doctor into letting us find out the gender a week early.  I've narrowed it down to Krispy Kreme Donuts or homemade cookies.  Cross your fingers she can be swayed easily, because these old wives' tales are just NOT CUTTING IT for me.
