Half Baked: 20 Weeks

Total Weight Gained/Loss?  15ish lbs...ugh!  Thankfully, the weight gain has slowed down a bit and seems to be more steady.  I feel huge though already.

Maternity Clothes?  Heck yeah.  Pretty much all I wear.  The non-maternity clothes that I can still fit in are dwindling.

Sleep?  I bought a Snoogle pregnancy pillow.  It is the best thing in the world!  Love it.  I'm sleeping great at night due to this sucker.  Even the pups and Michael like it. :)

Best Moment of the Week?  BL's room has been painted chocolate brown and we are getting crown moudling and wainscoting installed next week.  We're moving right along!

Movement?  I'm feeling BL move pretty much every day.  Little rolling sensations, flutters, etc., but they are stong enough where I know they are the baby.  :)

Food Craving?  I'm loving Coca-Cola right now.  Not too much, but a tiny little glass every evening or a class when we go out to dinner hits the spot.

Food Aversions?  None...still haven't had Cous Cous, but it doesn't sound as bad as it did before.

Gender?  Still a surprise...this week I'm thinking its a boy.  Last week I thought it was a girl.  Who knows.

Belly Button?  Still there, but getting flatter.

What I miss?  Sushi...been wanting that a little bit more lately.

What I'm looking forward to?  New crown moulding and wainscoting!

Milestones:  BL had hiccups for the first time that I could feel them the other day.  Very funny and cute.

Belly pic--definitely preggers!:

18 Wk Sonogram

We had our 18 wk sonogram last Friday (April 16th), and we were so happy to see that Baby Lloyd ("BL") is looking great.  Everything looked *perfect*!  BL weighed about 10 oz and had a heartbeat of 153.  We are just praying s/he continues to grow and mature right on track.  Here are some pics:
