20 Weeks! Halfway there!!

So yeah I'm growing like crazy! Which means the baby is too!!! That's a very good thing!!!

We had our ultrasound on Monday (pictures coming soon after I do some cropping) and the baby is healthy and growing very well, all the parts and pieces are where they are supposed to be.

We definetly have a Donovan/Cargill/Daniels/Maxwell baby on our hands though he or she was giving the doctor a very hard time about seeing certain things. He or she also would not show us WHAT it actually was, so we are gender unknown until this little baby comes into the world!!! Which I am really ok with, until I realized this means we have to pick out a boy name AND a girl name for when the baby is born. I was hoping to know it was a boy or a girl and have a tentative backup just in case. Oh well! So the name game is on if anyone has any suggestions!

We did some more work to the nursery the other day, changed the outlets, put up CO detector and hung some stuff on the wall. After my appointment on Monday I went online and created my registry for my shower which makes me feel much better. Don't ask me why but it does.

Also a little funny story for everyone, the baby has been kicking like crazy, especially at night when I get home from work and am relaxing, BUT the minute Eric tries to feel it the baby IMMEDIATELY stops. Well I was standing in the kitchen the other day and Eric wanted to "listen" to the baby, so he had his ear on my lower belly and the baby apparently took offense to that and kicked Daddy right in the head, is this a sign????

Week 18!!!

This week was a VERY exciting week for me!! The baby started kicking so I could feel it on Sunday. It is such an awesome feeling!!! It feels exactly like you would expect to feel and very different at the same time. Of course our little one has only let Daddy feel it once!! The minute he comes over the baby stops kicking, but he did get to feel it once and it was VERY cool, for both of us! The baby is lots more active when I'm resting or after I've just eaten (must be he or she likes the little burst of energy food gives him or her!).

This week I also for some unexplainable reason started calling the baby "he", I have no idea why, before that it was she, and I can't bring myself to call it "it". Its a baby and it is male or female, even if we don't know which! BUT to my bring up my next point our ultrasound is in 9 days!! So Baby Maxwell had better cooperate so we can know what "it" is!! ;-) Although if we can't find out we will survive, it will just be harder to register for things, and after the ultrasound that is going to be my next project is setting up a complete baby registry, I have already started one at Babies R' Us, just with the very basics that do not require gender knowledge. I don't know if anyone has noticed latelty but you CANNOT shop for gender neutral things, there is green and yellow and I HATE green and yellow, or at least baby green and yellow! Reminds me of puke....or something!

I found some very adorable bedroom sets for baby at Walmart if its is a girl, we like this one, if it is a boy we like this one, and if we can't find out we start back at square one.

Here is belly picture week 17 1/2.......growing like crazy!!! Not even half way there yet!!!
