We're halfway there

This pregnancy is f-l-y-i-n-g!
Just passed 20 weeks with our little guy and enjoying each day!
I seem to be low on energy these days between our busy girl, my auto immune disease and growing our little guy but I wouldn't trade anything for this. We had our big 20 weeks ultrasound this morning; here's where we're at:

Weeks: 20

Cravings: ha. I could write a novel! I am still loving pickles, very particular on them though. Pizza sounds good every single day, fresh fruit, chocolate malted ice cream and chocolate satin pie from Marie Calendars. Not sure where the pie craving from but my momma surprised me yesterday with a whole pie. Talk about paradise! I promise I'm eating healthy food too. My new favorite thing to have for breakfast and lunch is raisin bran cereal, I splurge on dinner :)

Food Aversions: I haven't had chicken breast yet or a steak but the thought of it doesn't make me want to gag anymore so hopefully that one will be behind me soon.

Heartbeat: between high 150's and low 160's. That saying of a high heartbeat = girl is a silly old wives tale!

Gender: precious baby BOY!

Extras: I have been so busy getting ready for our little man. I sewed 20 burp cloths for him yesterday and am having way too much fun buying clothes, blankets...etc. My belly is still on the smaller side but he is right on track, just tucked back in there. Found out today that he is now breech. The dude is having fun moving around in there! Chris got to feel him kick for the first time last night. Such a thrill for both of us! I am up 9 pounds but and am starting to feel like a heffer. I have to keep reminding myself that it's all for a great cause. I am just starting to "work out" each day. Those words are not even in my vocabulary but I do 100 squats and am trying to keep my arms somewhat in shape with my little arm weights and taking Kate for walks in the afternoon. If anything it makes me feel better and gives me a little more energy. Trying to cherish each day with my girl, I know the end our of our one on one time will be over before we know it. I'm already starting to count down the days until we meet her baby brother, so so excited!!!

Here are a couple pictures from our ultrasound today:




Can you tell I'm having fun shopping???

William is now the size of a cantaloupe!
He weighs about 10.2 ounces and is 6.5 inches long from crown to rump
