I just cannot believe that we are at the halfway point. At the same time... I cannot believe we are only at the halfway point. Does this make any sense? December/January seems so far away... but at the same time, I feel like I went from 3 weeks to 20 in the blink of an eye.
So overall? This week? Great week. Again, the nausea/sickness is completely gone. I'm not fatigued like I used to be. And I just feel great. Now, I do have to say I feel pregnant this time around. With Elliana? I always just felt F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S, and this time? I feel a little large in the belly region.
The great thing is I have only gained 7lbs this pregnancy. By 20 weeks with E, I had already gained 20 pounds. But again, I feel more pregnant this time around.
Also wanted to make note of the fact that I have felt Baby Boy move every day, multiple times a day, and very very pronounced. I know last week I had mentioned that it wasn't so obvious... and I guess he didn't like me saying that, because it's definitely quite obvious now.
Okay. Seriously. Saying baby boy and he is getting me all sorts nervous. Me? A boy mama? Someone hold me. I am so over the moon excited, and at the same time... feel like I'm brand spankin' new at this!
Funny thing Elliana did this week was walk over to the kitchen table where I was sitting with my belly hanging out, stuck out her little finger, touched my belly and said "Caillou." I think I almost fell out of that chair. Husband and I have been joking about the fact that when this baby comes she is going to call him Caillou, and here she is... doing just that. Except, he isn't even here yet!
Husband is doing wonderful as well. He is all nervous as always about things. Wanting to make sure everything is okay with the baby. Nervous about being a boy papa as well. Just the typical Andrew. It's pretty cute. He is also obsessing over names. Hello difference. He was never that way with E. Well.. then again, we had her name picked out at like 11 weeks. Before we even knew it was a girl. Regardless, he wants to name this child...
And I have a feeling the name will be special. Just saying :)
