This will be a quicky because I have another blog post to do this week… our anatomy scan is tomorrow and Luke and I are THRILLED to see all the teeny tiny parts that make up our perfect little person. We’ll also be finding out whether we need lots of floofy ruffle-butt bloomers or lots of handsome little overalls/tiny loafers. I’m not sure why, but if we have a boy I imagine him dressed as a tiny old man. Maybe we can find him some polyester golf shirts while we’re at it.
Luke is just as excited as I am, as baby has been communicating with HIM the past week or so as well. He gets a few thumps goodnight most days, and loves the interaction. My Darling Heather has also gotten a few “hello’s” in. It’s such a tease, because now I want them to be able to feel it ALL the time. Soon enough. All our trips out west are coming up, so we’ll have a baby kicking/thumping/flipping/wiggling love fest!
How far along? 20 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: ~9-10lbs
Stretch marks? Not so far.

Best moment this week: Luke feeling the baby for the first time. He was a little startled. It was so fun!!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Have you started to show yet: Yes! We were out to eat at our favorite diner and our favorite waiter came up and asked me if I was [rubs his belly]. I laughed and said yes, thinking he was pretty brave to ask such a thing, when he said, “I could see you doing The Belly Rub from across the room!” His wife just had another baby and so he knows The Belly Rub. haha!
Gender prediction: Still leaning towards boy… I’ve been doing the gender predicting stuff. Ruby’s prediction is still out. =P
Belly Button in or out? In, but it feels kind of… hard? Along the top edge. not sure what that means, but it feels weird to the touch.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! And energetic! Wooooooo!
Looking forward to: The anatomy scan! I can’t wait to see our kid again! It’s like Skype for bellies.
