20 Weeks!

Half way point! Who knew it would sneak up on you like that? I'm sorry, what happened to the last 20 weeks? Didn't I just go in for our embryo transfer two weeks ago? I guess the saying time flies when you're having fun really is true. I have loved every single second of being pregnant, I don't want it to be over in 20 weeks. What if this is my only pregnancy? I know some women hate being pregnant and can't wait for it to be over but I think this is the best time of my life right now. Don't get me wrong, there are some un-pleasantries that come with pregnancy like niagra of the panties and the boob pain. Totally worth every second of it!
 
Awe - my little cantaloupe! I hope that isn't the size of your head when you are born. Ouch!


Best Moment of the week: I still haven't felt the baby kick on the outside yet but The Captain and I can search for the pulsing of the umbilical cord. Just knowing that it is attached to him makes me feel better. It's funny because it will move away from our hand and if he is on his belly then I can't find it any where.

Epiphany of the week: I think my Golden had the epiphany this week or I just now noticed that she knows I am pregnant. Last night I was laying on the sofa watching tv and she was in our bedroom, on her bed, napping. I heard a car door out side and sure enough she comes trotting down the hall to stare at the front door, she realized there was no one coming and came over to me and stared at my belly and then nudged with her nose. I couldn't believe it! It was like she was saying "I am here to protect you and all is okay". Of course, I cried.

Entertaining question/comment of the week: speaking of dogs, my Aunt asks me "What are your plans with the dogs?" I just looked at her, okay it was probably more like a death stare, and then she asks "Are you planning on keeping them?". Really? They are like my children too, am I supposed to discard them just because we are having a baby?

Obsessions: Waiting for a good kick. . .

What I am most looking forward to this week: Picking up the nursery furniture from the store.

What I miss the most: This week I don't miss not being pregnant at all.

Symptoms: oh, the boob pain! My boobs have been sore before but this is just down right painful. I think they are starting to make colostrum.

Milestones: Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies respond best to tastes they've already had via amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you'd like your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch. *Courtesy of TheBump.com

I have been a reader/follower for a while and I just feel the need to comment today!

I love that you think of your dogs as your first children. I am almost 30 weeks pregnant with twin boys and we have a very loving, overly excitable 70 pound lab mix, and she has been our baby from the time she was 9 weeks. We love her, probably more than any normal people should love an animal really lol...but sometimes people just don't get it.

It will be an adjustment for the whole house, her included. We will have to be loving and patient and make sure she adjusts as we do too. But she is our baby and I just know she will be a great big sister!

Congrats on your pregnancy and keep on loving those pups!!!
