Half way there, Somersaults, baby bump, & advice please.

20 Weeks today!

That means we are half way there to meeting our little boy. We are so excited and busy getting our home ready to welcome him. I have a feeling this last 20 weeks is going to fly. We are coming up on my favorite time of year and with all of the holidays and vacations, January will be here before we know it.

At 20 weeks I am:

  • Feeling great!
  • I really haven't gained that much weight but my belly is really sticking out!
  • Can't sleep very well (my hips are killing me!)
  • Have started the name selection
  • Is motivated again to get to the gym
  • Decided (with help from Aaron) the nursery theme will be vintage airplanes
  • Has strangers ask how far along I am...I love it
  • Know we are having a boy

Here is my 20 week picture. I'm getting big!

Progress so far. I really popped between 15 & 20 weeks!

This little guy is so active! It feels like he is doing somersaults all day long. It is the most incredible feeling.

Now, for some needed advice...

I'm thinking it's time to start a registry. So, what is one thing that you; couldn't live without, one thing that was nice but not necessary, and one thing that was a waste of money? Plus if you have any other tips on making a registry I would love them.

Our little baby boy

Today was the day. It felt like forever waiting to find out if this little peanut is a boy or girl. Aaron and I are just thrilled to announce that...

We have always hoped for a baby boy and shed tears of joy when we saw the proof on the monitor. The ultrasound lady was so wonderful and talked us through the entire thing. We saw ten fingers and ten toes, a perfect spine, a strong heart, working digestive system, a cute little face, and a very convincing "boy area". He was pretty relaxed and just moved around a little bit. I think he was being shy because he is such an active little boy most of the time. Aaron was even able to feel him kick a few days ago!

We got a ton a pictures. I know these can be hard to understand but if you stare long and hard enough you can see our little boy!

Those are some of my favorites. Pretty cute, ha?

We feel so blessed and grateful to our Heavenly Father for this child. Now, we start thinking about names!

And now for a song...

"Little boy, when you speak, I can’t help but kiss your cheeks" Enjoy:)

Next week?... another belly picture!

Being Pregnant is crazy! (and belly pics)

There really isn't anything like it! I've started feeling the baby move and I seriously get the giggles every time.

I'm 16 weeks now and the nausea has gotten A LOT better however, the vomiting hasn't stopped yet. Hopefully soon:) Now, I am just uncontrollably hungry.

Last night was my first night sleeping with a pregnancy pillow and it made a huge difference. I love it! Aaron was not exactly excited when he saw the size of it. Thank goodness we have a king size bed:-) Thanks Erin for the pillow!

I think it is funny how many people already thought I was pregnant before I announced it. I know I was being a little silly waiting so long.

We have our ultrasound in 20 days to find out if it is a girl or boy and I am so excited! We can't wait. Want to take a guess? There is a poll on my side bar.

Okay, on to belly pics. I've debated whether or not to post any. I know it can cause some judgements to be made but this is the first time that I have actually had something that looks like a baby belly and I'm just happy to have one:) (I didn't really have one with my first pregnancy). So be kind:-). With that said, here they are: 5, 10, & 15 weeks. For those wondering I've gained 5lbs so far. Not that much considering my back feels like I've gained 40.
