Bump Attack 20 weeks

8.24.12

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 :)

  2. You look wonderful, mama! I totally laughed when you wrote that E called your belly Caillou. She is so funny!

    And don't worry about being a new "boy mom." Your instincts will kick in and it will feel like you've known what to do all along!

  4. Can't wait to hear HIS name!!!! Jer and I have had a boy named picked out forever and thought girl names were much harder!! We always joke that if we decide to have more, we will prob have all girls since to us boy names are easier! Haha

    You look great!! Can't believe you are already 20 weeks!! :)

  8. I have felt the same way. So far I'm weighing less than when I was pregnant last time, but I started feeling pregnant sooner, and showed even earlier. I also felt this baby move earlier and she is more active on a daily basis.

  17. You and baby boy are too cute for words! Love that you are talking boy names...I am dying to know what you will call HIM! Parker called Bents "Baby CG" for the first 6 months of his life. Calilou or Baby CG...this little boy will have such a wonderful big sister!

  18. I think had I known I was expecting a boy, i would have been really nervous. Throughout my whole pregnancy I kept thinking I was having a girl. Now? I couldn't imagine anything else! Boys are tons of fun, and you'll have a great time with your SON and DAUGHTER!! Pressure will be off for gender on any future pregnancies:)

  19. You have the cutest maternity dresses! So exciting that you're halfway through!

  20. Cannot believe you are halfway! So exciting! You look fantastic and I love that you can just keep wearing cute dresses. Nice!

    My one boy advice (that you didn't ask for) don't buy those pee pee teepees. Someone gave us some and they are silly. A simple washcloth will do the trick!!!
