Halfway there!

Holy cow. Halfway there! I don't know how to turn the ultrasound pic sideways so you will have to turn your head to see BabyJoe. Isn't he cute? Can you tell that he's waving? The anatomy scan was SO FRIGGIN COOL. I made the dr zoom in on his feet to see if they will be ugly like mine. I'm pretty sure my dr thinks I am a lunatic. I feel like in my picture I look smaller than I am in real life. Several people have commented on my girth. Still others sound surprised when I tell them I'm pregnant. I think I look pregnant enough to assume, but maybe they're being nice?
I want to be at the point when people are certain that I am pregnant and not chubby. I want it to be warmer too so I can wear dresses and stop trying to find shirts that cover my growing gut. I have a few maternity shirts, but I'm not really big enough to need those yet. They end up looking silly on me, but most of my regular shirts need a tank top underneath to avoid showing any "overhang" - a dress would take care of all of that. It's too cold to try just yet though.

How far along? 20 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I am officially up 1lb since BFP
Maternity clothes? So far just pants
Sleep: Getting more and more elusive. Mr. Joe doesn't let me have the body pillow so I have to get my own :-(
Best moment this week: The anatomy scan - even though that was last week. Seeing babyjoe move and feeling him at the same time made me hyper aware of every movement now.
Movement: All the time! I feel like I'm starting to learn his personality now that I feel him move so much.
Food cravings: Ice cream and potato chips lately - I better slow my roll or I'll be up way more than a pound at the next appointment!
Gender: BOY
Labor Signs: No thank you!!
Belly Button in or out? Still an innie. I think I will always be though. My belly button is weird.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach!! And beer a little. Being at Disney, but thats irrelevant.
What I am looking forward to: Warm weather and March Madness this weekend. Shopping for nursery furniture.
Weekly Wisdom: People love to tell you how your pregnancy is going to be because they know more than you do.
Milestones: 20 more weeks to go!! Less if I have him when I hope I do!!
