20 Weeks

I am half way through this pregnancy!!

Robbie was able to attend the last prenatal appointment and hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time. We were able to sneak a peak at our baby using the ultrasound machine to try to see if we could tell the sex of the baby. It was still pretty early, but if they had to guess, they said it was a girl. I think that's so exciting! I always thought I wanted a boy baby first, but I have a feeling this one is going to be a girl.

Our next appointment is next week and it is supposed to be one of the milestone appointments. We're going to have an ultrasound on one of the good machines, and hopefully they will be able to pinpoint the sex of the baby. I hope it cooperates!

I browsed Babies R Us today and I felt pretty intimidated by how much everything costs! I hope our baby doesn't end up sleeping on the floor. Bassinets apparently don't last very long, and you probably have to end up buying a crib anyway. I suppose I'll just have to keep looking. I think I'm about to get to the busy part of the pregnancy. I am going to have to rearrange my flute lessons to try to take a prenatal class. I also want to take a breastfeeding class.

The closer I get to the end of the pregnancy, the more I wish that I could just stay home and have the baby. I also wish that I could use a birth pool. I've done research on them, not much, but I really think that being in water like that will help me out. I'm going to ask about whether or not we can bring our own to the hospital, but it seems like it will be kind of a hassle to have to put it together there. Hopefully I'll at least have a shower in my room.

I finally bought a blender and made a strawberry milkshake smoothie thing. It was a disaster even though it tasted good. The baby LOVED it! :0) I've never felt it move so much!
