Halftime Report

Yesterday marked twenty weeks along in this pregnancy with little Milo! At times I felt as if this time would never get here (I've never been so sick!), but sometimes I look back and wonder how the weeks passed so quickly. One thing you may or may not know about me is that I'm a planner; I have little mental checkpoints to help me stay focused on each project or day (or long car drives to, say, Disneyland) I set out on. Now that I have about twenty weeks left until Milo enters the world, I have new little checkpoints set up along the way until December arrives. These include my monthly doctor's appointments, getting the baby's room ready, my grandparents visiting from Tennessee and my baby shower in October, my birthday in November, Thanksgiving (mashed potatoes are always something to look forward to), and then- voila!- December will be here.

I've also been spending some time writing my thoughts to Milo in a little journal that someday he will hopefully enjoy reading and realize that I love him so much, even if he did make me lose my lunch on countless occasions. He's definitely worth all the trouble!

Today we had an ultrasound to find out the gender of our baby, and we're having a son (it's so weird to even say that)! The ultrasound technician took lots of pictures and spent about half an hour with us- we enjoyed every minute. At the beginning of the ultrasound, he was moving and stretching his little arms and legs like crazy and had the hiccups (I thought it was so cute to see his little body make a quick little movement with each one). In 2D, we could see his spine, hands, feet and "boy parts" as he was clearly having a great time in there, moving all around! We got to take a look at little Milo in 3D as well, and could see him sucking his thumb, waving his hand, and moving his fingers all around (I told Parker that he's going to play the piano, just like Mommy). It was crazy getting a little glimpse of his face and knowing that I'm already almost halfway there to meeting this little guy!
