Halfway There

On Sunday, I hit 20 weeks into this pregnancy.  It's so hard to believe that I'm already halfway done.  There were a few weeks that went by really slowly, but for the most part, it has been going by really fast.  The first trimester, and the first few weeks of the second trimester, were really difficult for me since I felt so sick all the time, but fortunately, the sickness has passed for the most part.

My favorite thing about being pregnant is being able to feel the baby kick.  It's been fun trying to guess what kind of personality our kid is going to have.  Sometimes, I think it's going to be a pretty chill baby, and at other times, I think s/he is going to be really active.  Both D and I firmly believe that s/he will be stubborn.  Baby likes to tease its daddy already.  It will be kicking like crazy one second but as soon as D puts his hand on my stomach, all movement stops.  As soon as D removes his hand, the kicking resumes.  It's really funny.

I have been seriously lacking with the baby bump pictures and there's good reason for that.  I didn't really have one until the last week or two.  So here you go... my 20 week bump.

We have our anatomy scan on Friday morning.  We are so excited!  We finally get to find out if this baby is a boy or a girl.  Fingers crossed that Baby cooperates.  Both D and I have strong feelings that it's a boy but we will be extremely excited no matter what it is.  We have been running an unofficial poll and so far, it has been pretty even on girl votes and boy votes.

If you'd like to take a guess, feel free to leave a comment.  I'll make an announcement on Friday (depending on whether Baby cooperates) with the final result!

That's so funny, my son does the same thing with my husband! Haha now sometimes I use it to my advantage, like if he's kicking my ribs I have my husband put his hand on my belly so the baby will stop!
