20 Weeks

I can't believe we are half way there!! I am so anxious to meet our sweet boy.

How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Well… 10 lbs.  Keep in mind please this has been over Thanksgiving and Christmas where we have been doing a lot of dining out.  I have also developed a sweet tooth.  The doctor said she wasn't going to give me a lecture since it was the holidays :) buuuutttt I need to watch it the next 4 weeks.  I would say 10 lbs overall isn't bad!  I feel pretty proud of myself for not being a whale yet!
Maternity clothes? Took my first trip to Motherhood and got a couple shirts.  Pretty hard to conceal this belly!
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: It's getting a little more uncomfortable.  Mainly because I am very conscious about rolling over onto my back.  Something about it cutting off blood flow and it makes me nervous.  I have been putting either a pillow or blanket behind me that way if I do  roll over, at lease I am still slightly tilted.
Best moment these past 4 weeks: We went to San Antonio for Christmas and were able to stop at the outlets in San Marcos on the way back.  I was able to get Liam's Christmas shirt at Janie and Jack.  We also found a Carhartt  diaper cover to wear in his newborn pictures!  Shopping has been fun.  Lots of fun!  
Movement: Oh man! He is active! Rolling around and kicking like crazy!  Jonas got to feel him move for the first time the day after Christmas.  He is most active in the morning around 8:00 and in the afternoon around 4:00.  It is crazy to me how they are already on a little schedule.  He also enjoys his space.  If I put any extra pressure where he is or sit the wrong way, he will let me know really quick.  
Food cravings: Lately it has been sweets.  Not a good thing.  
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.  Everything is going down just fine!    
Have you started to show yet: I officially look pregnant.  Over the last two weeks my friends have been made comments that it looks like I grew overnight.  I am ok with that though :) 
Baby Name: Liam Jonas Palomino
Belly Button in or out? In but it is definitely different.  More shallow and flatter.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy.  Could not be more happy.
Looking forward to: Getting to see him in 20 short weeks!! Can't wait!  I am also pretty excited about our shower.  Hoping for it to be at the end of March.  Normally, I am on the planning end of all the showers so I am really looking forward to sitting back and taking it all in :) 
Doctor Appointment on January 3rd: This appointment was our anatomy scan.  The technician spent about 20 minutes looking over everything and making sure he was developing how he should be.  I was just happy to be sitting back and watching the monitor.  Catching a glimpse of his little feet or hands.  He is proving to be photogenic already.  Never has a problem showing that sweet profile :)  He had has left arm above his head again but his right hand looked like he was scratching his butt!  Little stinker is going to be ALL boy!  Everything seems to be going along great!  He is measuring perfect at 12 oz.  When we talked to Dr. M she did inform us that the umbilical  cord had a marginal insertion to the placenta.  Basically, instead of being inserted at the center of the placenta, it is inserted at the edge.  She didn't seem too concerned but wants to monitor it starting at 28 weeks to make sure he is growing like he should and that it isn't moving too much.  It is only found in 7% of pregnancies but very rarely causes complications during delivery.  We are in good spirits and have 150% confidence in our doctor.  Not too worried about it.  
Extra:  Another profile shot with his hand over his face.  Also his feet :)
