Halfway There!

Sorry the image looks bad, it was taken at night with funky lighting. So I fixed it the best I could!

Wow. Am I already halfway through this pregnancy? Sure doesn't feel like it! Our life has been out of control these past couple of weeks. (hence the none existent 18 & 19 weeks... woops) We got a Puppy! Probably a stupid idea? Yeah that's what I was thinking. But his cute little face just makes me want to melt! He is getting his own post here in just a few days! Also school started up. 7 classes! Who does that?

How far along? 20 weeks or 5 months
Baby's measurements: 6.5 in and 10.6 oz
Gender: Boy
Total weight gain/loss: 6 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I'm thinking about it...
Sleep: I have now converted to my side, not by choice though! I find myself waking up on my back pretty much like 15 times a night. haha I guess it's just more comfortable!
Best moment this week: I hit the halfway mark! And we got our official ultrasound actually last week, but it was awesome! He is FOR SURE a boy haha and he is so cute too! We got one side glimpse and I think his mouth looks like Stevens mouth. :)
Miss anything? Cookie dough!! I want it every single day lately...
Movement: I feel him every day now :) Steve still can't feel him on the outside, but I am determined to make that happen soon!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Surprisingly NOTHING!
Food cravings: Strawberry milk, Chocolate milk, and I want coke like an addict wants drugs! haha I only take a sip or two here and there though. I'm trying to be good!
Belly button in or out? It's making it's way out! But it's still in...
Happy or Moody? Happy!
Weekly Wisdom: Don't eat big meals anymore! It makes my belly feel like its going to burst open! haha that sounds gross.
Looking forward to: 20 more weeks of peace and quiet!

Because I am halfway through I thought I'd share some halfway highs and lows:

High: I am no longer nauseous!
Low: I puked today... But I'm determined to call it an accident!

High: We have bought Jack some of the cutest little boy clothes!
Low: Walking in to the store and seeing it over run by cute girl clothes :(

High: I now look like I am officially pregnant!
Low: I can't bend over anymore and feel like I will pee my pants when I try to do so.

High: We have the cutest little puppy ever!
Low: We became parents faster than we needed to be.

High: I can't believe my body can grow a baby and I get to feel him kick every day.
Low: I have the worst acne of my life! I am getting grandma spots on my arms and I am aching like an old woman!

High: I can now eat pretty much anything and not feel sick.
Low: I can now eat pretty much anything and I feel terrible when I do...

High: I know exactly how I want to decorate Jacks room!
Low: I have zero motivation to craft or decorate.

High: I am so glad I will graduate before he gets here.
Low: I look like a fool all winded walking in to class because I can't walk anywhere now without breaking a sweat.

High: I can still fit into my skinny jeans!
Low: I only have one pair left that I can actually button up the front.

High: My hair grows like crazy with these prenatal vitamins.
Low: I don't have any money to get it colored so it looks pretty scary. And it falls out quite a bit it actually too.

Ok I think I can end there! Sorry for the long post!
