20 Weeks!

20 Weeks!  That's half way done. :)  Or Kris says half way started.  Either way, it's an exciting milestone for me.  The baby is kicking in there often during the day, and it's such a comfort...  What an amazing experience.  Kris also got to feel the baby move yesterday on our 20 week mark - we were laying in bed and when the baby started kicking, I put his hand on my belly and felt a couple of big kicks!  I love that I can share that with him.  It's unreal to think that we will have a little baby to share a family bond with, who will look up to us as loving parents, guides, and protectors.

How far along?  20 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss:  Prolly about 11-12 lbs by now.
Maternity clothes?  Went shopping at Motherhood Maternity for the first time yesterday.  Clothes were kinda expensive, actually...  I'm not sure I'll be doing a lot of shopping there.  However, they had these long tanktops that were $7.50, so I got four of them.  Very comfortable, and they're very long and stretchy.  Also bought a couple of really cute, comfortable, soft long dresses that are perfect maternity wear.  I'll be wearing a lot of dresses during the summer!
Stretch marks?  None that's new.
Sleep:  I've been sleeping very well lately!  It's been surprising...  and refreshing.
Best moment this week: Sharing the baby's movement with Kris.  AH-MAZING.
Movement:  The baby's definitely getting stronger!  I feel her everyday, and a lot.  It's so good.
Food cravings:  Just good fruit.
Gender:  Doesn't matter at this point - we'll take what God gives us! :)
Labor Signs: None.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss:  At this point?  Not much. :)  Pregnancy's been good for the past week since I've been able to rest from the trips to Texas.  I'm so content to feel the baby move, and I feel generally great.
What I am looking forward to:  Getting the nursery done.
Weekly Wisdom:  Resting makes you feel better!  Putting my hair down and just doing nothing all weekend has been SO good for me.
Milestones:  Daddy felt the baby kick! :D  And we're halfway done waiting for the baby to come.
