20 week survey

How far along? 20 1/2 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: around 4lbs
Maternity clothes? Yup - though I try to still fit in my regular clothes
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: I like to sleep on my right side. I had read that pregnant women should sleep only on their left side. This is crap. I sleep better (having stolen Shay's side of the bed) on my right side.
Best moment this week: Finding out the sex of the baby
Movement: I got kicked today at work.
Food cravings: pickles, Sprite, ice cream, and the other day Taco Bell.
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach. Oh, the good ole days!
What I am looking forward to: Calyn's shower and the IA Girls dinner.
Weekly Wisdom: Taco Bell sucks when you eat ALOT of it. Shay bet me I couldn't eat everything that I ordered.... It was alot.... I wanted to prove him wrong - and I did. Now I am paying for it!
Milestones: feeling the first real kick today.

I have a penis growing in me!

Thats right ladies and gents... I have a little ladies man in me!

The ultrasound went well. We saw 10 fingers, 10 toes, the spine, the heart, the ribcage, and an awesome bicep. When we went in to meet with my doctor, we were met with some "interesting" news. I am being referred to a high risk specialist and have an appointment scheduled for June 10th.

They found a "band" that is connecting my placenta from top to bottom which could potentially get in the way of the babies growth. As of right now the baby is perfect. Measuring right on target. The high risk specialist is a precaution. Shay believes that its nothing and that it is probably just scar tissue that worked its way in my uterus when I had the cyst burst on my ovary years ago.

We haven't settled on a definite name as of yet, and probably won't til the baby is born and we see his face. Lets just be happy that we know the sex (HA! I WON), and start buying lots of little boy stuff!

Above are some pictures from the ultrasound. Shay said that we couldn't post the "money shot" - It could be considered Kiddie Porn.
