Thursday marked 20 weeks of this pregnancy - the halfway mark of a typical 40 week gestation. Of course by the look of my belly it looks like I'm due any day. I'm feeling good - physically and (mostly) emotionally. I feel like I have a lot to do - but not totally overwhelmed just yet. The halfway point is kind of awesome that way - you feel established in the pregnancy, but not behind...yet.
I haven't really been taking belly pictures - mostly because I feel like a blimp. With Leo, even though I was overweight to begin with I felt like pregnancy suited me - like my figure was built to show off a baby bump; a fertility goddess, if you will. This time I just feel like a suddenly got wide everywhere. Still, I'm sure in five years I will wish I took some shots of this belly - so I'm including few shots even though they are blurry and well, not really my favorite. (jb just read this over my shoulder and reminded me that I cried after seeing pictures of myself last pregnancy - so perhaps the veil of time has/will change(d) my opinion.)
Leo is convinced this baby will be a little sister - whenever asked if he thinks he will be getting a little brother or sister he exclaims "sister!" He is also lobbying pretty hard that we name the baby "Tuna". jb and I are not totally convinced on the name, but we've added it to the list.
