Pregnancy Diary 2: Week 20

Man, the two weeks between these posts are just flying by! We are half way there now. I am feeling pretty great. My energy is back, and I am feeling as normal as any pregnant girl can. I feel like I always have to pee, but if that is my only complaint I'll take it.

We have our ultrasound this Thursday, and we are SO EXCITED! I was telling Dean just yesterday that I don't remember being this anxious to find out the gender. With both Will and Sam I just knew they were boys. From the very beginning I referred to them as a 'he'. But this time around I really have no inklings at all.

Before getting pregnant this time, I was really hoping for a girl next. I felt that if we found out we were having a 3rd boy I would be pretty disappointed. But ever since getting pregnant I just don't care. I truly just want the baby to be healthy, boy or girl. Although, if I HAD to bet on what it is I would have to say boy. But I don't know if it's because it's all I've ever known or what. And really, one big reason for wanting a girl over a boy is because I have so many more decoration ideas for a girl nursery opposed to a boy. So yeah, pretty superficial.

Will is getting more and more excited about the baby, and I just love it. The other day we were hanging out in my bedroom and just out of the blue he asks the question..."Mom, how is the baby gonna come out?" Seeing as how I would love for him to be in the room during the birth, I couldn't exactly say it comes out of my belly button ;-P So, I told him in the simplest of words, and I said that the baby was going to be born right on mommy's bed! He started doing this nervous/excited laugh and then said he wanted to hold the baby. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.

So here is the belly at 20 weeks!


  1. Oh my goodness you look super cute! I found the information from Mary Flo to be REALLY insightful and helpful with conversations about where babies come from and how they get there :)
    Listening to the simple truths message was really helpful-I recommend getting it from itunes. We've had lots of questions lately - FUN!

  2. There are TWO maryfloblogs - if you just google
    Simple Truths Mary Flo Ridley hopefully the more informative blog will appear. One is a website with her resources, the other is a regular wordpress blog - but strangely they have the same web address. I don't know.
