20 Weeks - Half way there!

Hey there everyone! Ok, so as of yesterday, we are officially half way there! Yeah! I can definately tell that she (i.e. "I") am growing at a rapid pace these days. All my books say that she is having a growth spurt and if you haven't seen me in a while - you'll definately notice that so have I!! (See pics below!). Apparently she is supposed to weigh about 8 ounces and be about 6 1/2 inches long now. One of my websites says she's about the size of a coconut this week!! wow!

Ok, so here are the 20-week belly shots for your viewing pleasure:

Ok, so here's what's been going on other than me growing like crazy. So, before I said that I was starting to feel her move a bit. Well, her little flutters have turned into pokes and then into pokes directly into my bladder!!! What in the world! She's already started giving direct hits to my bladder - that is sooo not cool! I've tried to reason with her and let her know that it is not nice to kick mommy in the bladder - but she seems to be just as stubborn as her mother. Ugh, kids these days! :)

AND the best part is that Grant felt her for the first time on Sunday night. It was very cool for him. She was going to town in there and he must have felt her kick at least a dozen times. I'm so glad that I can share that with him now. Her kicks (even those to the bladder) are very comforting with everything else going on. Now I at least know that she is still happy and doing well in there on a regular basis.

Other than that, the bedding that we ordered from Grant's parents came in and it is BEAUTIFUL! We both love the bedding and are so glad that we picked that one out. And the mobile is adorable with the little lambs on it. - Thanks Susan and Alan! Now I just can't wait to get the nursery put together and get the furniture to put the bedding on it! Her room is going to be great!

We are also expecting to hear from Chad, Grant's brother any day now when Becca goes into labor with little Drew. She is due on Feb 4th (Monday) and we can't wait to meet him. I know that they are excited to meet him, as well and Grant's parents are DYING to become grandparents for the first time. Best of luck Chad and Becca - can't wait to get the news that Drew is on his way! :)

Well, that's about all that is going on here. I still have about a month until my next appointment - which is just a checkup. Grant's follow-up appointment for his knee is Tuesday, so hopefully after that, he'll be able to start "learning" how to walk again. I joke, but I'm sure his leg is going to wonder what on earth is going on when he puts weight on it and tries to use it after 6 weeks of not using it at all. I'm sure he'll be up and around on it in no time since he is sooo anxious use it again! I'll let you guys know how his appointment goes.

Until next time, take care.

I got your website from my Mom thru Susan. I'm cousins with Chad and Grant and have met you once at Rebecca's bridal shower.
It's nice you have a blog and it will be great for everyone to keep up with your baby girl as she grows (in & out of you!) I wish you the best. I have a daughter, Sweeden and she is 7 1/2 months now. The time - pregnancy included, goes by so quickly! Enjoy every second of it! Your baby will grow up so fast then you'll look back at newborn pics of her and get all teary eyed like I do! It's the best feeling ever being a mom! I wish you both all the luck!
