a cantaloupe

i am a little bit of denial that we are already to this point! meaning this baby boy of ours could be here in as a little as seventeen weeks - sounds like such a short amount of time when you say it like that, maybe i will just stick to saying four and a half months...that sounds longer.

boy names are so stinking hard! i will touch on this more in a separate post, but i think we hit a turning point last night when tim suggested a name that i am officially in love with, and it is that much better that tim suggested it, i feel more confident about it that way. did i ever tell you rowan is my only baby that the minute i saw her i had major reservations about the name we had camped on for months? now i know it was the perfect choice, but i had a major moment of panic.

we have a had a house guest occupying baby boy's future room, for the last few months, who leaves at the end of july - that means it is nursery time! i am so excited and have been pinning like mad in preparation and painted some possible swatches on the way yesterday.

so there you have it, twenty weeks - we start with our new midwife group on the 2nd of July and get down to business on planning our home birth. i have started replacing all of the pink in our house with a little blue here and there and we are on our way to being ready for this boy!

How far along: twenty+ weeks
How big is baby: around 10.6 ounces
Total weight gain: not available.
Maternity clothes: yes! so much more comfortable but in need of a lot more!
Sleep: not bad, crazy dreams though! i am very exhausted around dinner time.
Best moment this week: our twenty week ultrasound!
Gender: boy! boy! boy!
Craving: fruit and diet coke
Movement: getting stronger, easier to feel through my anterior placenta.
Labor Signs: none, thankfully! this baby has a while to bake still.
Belly Button in or out: more out than in
Stretch marks: this is weird this question is on here, like one week you might say, "oh, they just went away?"
What I miss: being able to eat with out a serious case of acid reflux and heartburn, boo.
What I am looking forward to: shopping for adorable little boy clothes!
Milestones: we are half way people!
clearly i have like three top options and will continue to rotate them at will.
