Half Way Babay!

I'm 20 weeks along and here's the juice.  I still get nauseous... I wish people would have never told me that "Oh, your nausea and vomiting will ease up around 12 weeks".  Yeah. Thanks a lot for that piece of wisdom.  Every bit of the 8 weeks past my 12 week mark when I would get nauseous or puke (for the millionth time)  made me so frustrated!! You better be worth it little baby ;) {if the sarcasm didn't translate, I know he'll be worth it 10X over}.

My belly popped out overnight it seems like.  No seriously.  I did a photoshoot on Sunday and the cute little mom told me there is no way on this earth you are 5 months pregnant.  Then, on my shoot on Tuesday, the cute girl asked me how far along I was.  When I said 5 months shes said "seriously?!".  It made me so happy :)  I felt him move for CERTAIN on Sunday!  Before that I couldn't really tell if it was him or not - by that I mean I couldn't tell if it was the baby moving or if the four tacos I ate for lunch were making their comeback in my intestines....  It was awesome to feel it!  And, finally having strangers ask when I'm due is AWESOME!!
yeah baby!! I don't even care that I look nothing short is 7.5 months pregnant :)

At our doctor's appointment we had our 20 week ultrasound!  The kinda scary one where they tell you if your baby was put together correctly.  I don't know why I was so apprehensive... because our little guy is completely perfect :)  He was moving like crazy!  I told Bobbi, my sonographer, that I'd only felt him for sure move twice, and she was shocked!  She said that when I do regularly feel him move, it will be nonstop all the time - because he is a wiggler!  He is definitely a boy :)  he didn't want to show us his cute face, but we got junk shots almost the whole time - we get it baby! You're a dude! 

We still haven't decided on a name.  I'm a planner.  I have to know everything in advance or I start to freak out a little bit.  Working on the house has calmed me down a ton, though.  I get nervous that we won't be able to decide on a name and the hospital will pick one for us! I know it doesn't work that way, but whatever.  Ammon doesn't like to plan things that aren't 100% concrete.  So, him knowing me so well, is probably thinking once we decide on a name I'll change my mind - which could totally happen, too :) So, I'm thinking we'll pick our top five names and have people vote on them at my baby shower and see how it goes :) 

I can't believe how quickly the time is flying by :)  Pretty soon he'll be here!  It's so exciting :D
