20 weeks - hello halfway!!

How Far Along: 20 weeks, 3 days
Mini is the size of a: banana and we know she is already clocking in at 12 oz. as of last week!
Maternity Clothes: yes and no
Stretch Marks: nope, nada, stay the hell away!
Sleep: Good!
Symptoms: heartburn
Best Moment of the Week: Seeing Book of Morman in LA with  my sister. So much fun and during the first half little miss was dancing away during the musical numbers!
Movement: Yes and I LOVE it!! David got to feel her move for the first time on Monday night and my sister got to feel her as well. Pretty special. She is most active when I am flat on my back in the evenings.
Cravings: Poptarts - ever since Lindsey mentioned them in a blog post they have become sort of a weekly ritual. Cold of course.
Gender: GIRL
Belly Button In or Out: In
Wedding Ring on or Off: On
Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Nope!
What I Miss: As always sunnyside up eggs...
What I am Looking Forward to: going to the antique faire this Sunday. I also started crafting some items for the nursery.
Labor Signs: Let's hope this is a no for about 18 more weeks.
Nursery: Items are beginning to accumulate! I crafted a sign for the nursery and we also added more clothes to her growing collection - go figure.
Emotions:  Pretty good. When we went to visit my sister in LA David noticed my family pet's dog collar hanging by the door. He showed it to me and I totally cried. Also watched Up with  my nephews and had to fast forward - no way was I watching Ellie die!

Our 20 week ultrasound went really well. Mini is still a girl - thank goodness!!! Everything is measuring and looking perfect! We got to catch a small glimpse of her face and see her nose and mouth and they look just beautiful. Next appointment is the dreaded glucose test...womp,womp. Definitely will be skipping my poptart that week!


  1. YAY for halfway there! Looking great!!


  2. So glad to hear the checkup went well! That has to be the cutest thing when hubs finally gets to feel some kicks, enjoy every minute of it! :)

  3. You are so adorable!! I can't imagine going to the appt and knowing they said girl the first time and then them saying nope just kidding it's actually a boy!! I'd freak!! Love that you and david felt her move - that must be the most special thing!!

  4. Half way already?! So exciting. You look amazing!

  5. mmmm im not even pregnant and now i want some poptarts!!

  6. I can't believe you're already halfway! Time flies. I want to see Book of Mormon so badly...my maternal Grandma is from Utah and I have a huge Mormon family out there, so I think I'd be especially amused.

  7. You look great!! Yay for the halfway mark!! I loved the second half of pregnancy and felt it went by much faster than the first half. I'm still dying to see Book of Mormon- we keep missing tickets when it comes here.

  8. I got on a poptart kick a while back and didn't have pregnancy as an excuse. Why are those puppies so delicious? You look great!


  9. CONGRATS on being halfway done!!! You look beautiful. And that 20 week ultrasound is SO special, isn't it?! I loved seeing Baby B, even though (s)he slept through the whole thing :-)

  10. Yay love that he was able to feel her move!!! love following along!

  11. You're already halfway?? Wow, time is going by so fast!! Still lookin' great my friend!
    And how amazing that not only your sister got to feel baby girl move, but your baby daddy got to feel her move as well. I can only imagine what that feels like!!

  12. can't believe you are halfway already! she will be here in no time :)

  13. It's the home stretch, lady! Happy half-way!

  14. Can't believe you're already halfway! Where is this year going?! I've always had a slight addiction to the brown sugar cinnamon poptarts.. I can't even have them in my house haha!

  15. I had that same feeling at 20 where I thought it is still a girl, yay! ... because I was a little skeptical that they could tell as early on as 14-15 weeks when they told me. :) You are almost there! Good job you little incubator! :)

  16. I can't believe you're already half way there! That bump just gets more adorable every single week!

  17. Up makes me cry and I'm not even pregnant! Looking forward to eating all the pop tarts I want when I get pregnant! Still looking great girl!!

  18. So cute Laura! Glad you are feeling well. The time will go by fast! :)

  19. Yay! Halfway there! Looking beautiful as always! Glad that things are still going well! Good luck with your gluclose test!

  20. So now that I am 20 weeks pregnant, I will be reading all of your pregnancy updates again!! Get ready for some comments on your old blog postings!! :)
