Past the 1/2-way point!

Last week marked the 1/2 way point for my pregnancy. Corbin has been kicking up a storm and Adam has got to feel him once. Of course, the little stinker will kick like 5 times in a row and then stop as soon as Adam puts his hand on my stomach. I can also feel him twisting or turning in there. Definately some cool sensations.
His closet is already 1/2 full with clothes between us and my MIL. I am starting to wonder if he'll ever wear EVERYTHING we bought lol

How far along are you?: 21w, 1day

How big is baby?: He weighed 12 oz last Wednesday

Weight gain/loss?: I've gained 2lbs total 

Stretch marks?: 2 tiny ones on either side of my stomach. I knew they would be coming. 

Maternity clothes?: Definately. I can wear some of my longer pre-pregnancy shirts, but am in maternity pants full time.

Sleep?: I sleep pretty well. I just have really weird dreams. 

Best moment this week?: Feeling him squirm around in there!

Food cravings?: Burger King Onion Rings and Zesty Sauce

Gender?: He's all boy!
Movement?: Definately. He moves mostly after I eat. Guess he likes his food. 

Belly button?: Seems the same to me.
Labor signs?: None
What do I miss?: Feeling rested. Guess that won't be happening again for a while :)
What I'm looking forward to this week? Nothing special planned this week :)

I have a happy heart

Today is one of those days where I really am counting all of my blessings.
I have a great husband, an awesome family, a  home, 3 wonderful pups and a baby boy on the way!

We got started on the nursery this weekend. We painted it a great green and got the furniture together. Somehow we've ended up with a jungle theme, so I can't wait to add the details to it!

I am 19w today! I am almost half way there! I am sure the 2nd half will go a lot more slowly. I am already counting down days.

I hope everyone has a great day today :)

What? It's only been a couple of weeks.

Ok, so I slacked off on the blogging.

On 3/19 we found out that we are having a little boy! He was super shy and kept his legs crossed for a while. We finally got him to move and he showed off the goods. Then, he covered himself up with his hand. Apparently, he is going to take after his daddy. Here is the goods shot :) :

We are super excited and can't wait for Corbin Heath to make his arrival!

On another note:

Pregnancy does weird things to your body. Or, at least, to my body.
My sex drive is non-existant, I'm still waiting for the mythical "2nd tri energy boost," and my boobs hurt like no other. This is not to mention that they are now leaking. Wonderful, great. Yay. And yes, I am being sarcastic.

However, my hair looks great, my skin is clearer than it has been since pre-puberty and I feel generally good. Round ligament pains and hip pain has been the most. Now if only I could feel Corbin moving, we'd have it made!

How far along are you?: 18 weeks, 3 days

How big is baby? He's approximately the size of a sweet potato

Weight gain/loss?: Dunno, I was down 1 lb last appointment two weeks ago.
Stretch marks?: Not yet!

Maternity clothes?: I'm in maternity pants all the time. I can still wear most of my shirts, except they have a tendancy to creep up.

Sleep?: I've been sleeping like a rock. I am totally out at night, and no weird dreams lately! 

Best moment this week?: Getting the nursery ready to be painted!

Food cravings?: A1 sauce. Lots and lots of A1 

Gender?: It's a boy!
Movement?: Nada
Belly button?: Still in.

Symptoms?: None, really
What do I miss?: Not being sleepy

And here is my 18 week picture!
