20 weeks

It's hard to believe that I've been pregnant for 20 weeks... Probably b/c a lot of the time, I forget I'm pregnant and I actually almost forgot it was time to post an update!... Anyways, a few things that have changed this last month:

~ I can still lay on my belly, but one leg has to be 'cocked' out...

~ I'm officially out of regular pants. I can still wear a lot of my shirts and cotton/sweat pants, but all dress or jean pants are no longer comfortable...

~ I'm frustrated with all maternity clothes that are offered in stores. Not very good selections...

~ I pee atleast once an hour!

~ And, I'm kinda embarrassed to say this, but I actually fill out an 'A' cup! hahaha! ;-)

~ I feel her kicking all of the time and apparently she's around 10 1/2 oz and the length of a banana! No wonder!

~ Matt and I have decided that she is in fact going to be named Amelia or 'Mia,' whatever your heart desires. I plan on saying Amelia, but Matt says Mia. Anyways, we have no clue what her middle name is yet.... We've got time to figure it out!

See Miss Thang back there. She now insists to feed herself. She does a pretty darn good job when whatever she is eating is thick, but if it's runny, ugh, it's everywhere!

She thinks she is such a big girl!


This is hilarious! A few belly laughs that I got off of babycenter...

Count your blessings:

• The penis of a rhinoceros is 2 feet long.
• The penis of a mosquito is a hundredth of an inch long.
• The praying mantis bites her mate's head off while he impregnates her.
• Elephants are pregnant for two years.
• Many animals give birth to a dozen or more babies at a time.
• Your baby won't be born with hooves.


And, a note that has nothing to do with anything, but I wanted to share in case you haven't seen them.... I just bought a pair of brown & black pair of these... and, I love them!

Yay for the belly pic! Thanks for the update! I love her name! Brian and I are known for calling our kids the short version of their names so, I will probably call her Mia! I love it! P.S. you do the same thing with my kids, Ty, Jax ... :) Tyson calls Dakota, Kota! Hope to talk to you soon. Just a short 45 minutes before the kiddo's eat again!

I am quite sure that when I was prego with JD I didn't look this good at 12 weeks and I never forgot I was pregnant. Hence...I am jealous of you and your cuteness and your ability to forget being pregnant?? Will you consider potentially carrying my future children?? :) Okay...I know creepy coming from your internet friend! :) I am so glad things are going well for you and baby Mia. Love her name! And not to be partial or anything but I think "louise" is a wonderful choice for a middle name. :)

You look great, and I have those same sandals in brown! :)

Be thankful that Cyd is feeding herself, we have such a struggle with Kendra getting her to use her utensils. :)
