20 weeks this week, which makes this prgancny half way over. Which also means that we are half way to meeting our new addition!

This week Wasabi is the length of a banana! About 10.5 ounces! This week is the first week that the baby is measured from head to toe instead of crown to rump! I can definately feel the baby moving more now. Even Tim was able to feel it moving around!

In mommy news, I am finally feeling GREAT! I have so much energy and I'm not having any morning sickness at all. My sciatic pain is still present but not as bad as it was. Recently I've been having a lot of round ligament pain (the ligament that connects the uterus to my abdominal wall) because I'm growing so much more quickly now!

My mom and I went shopping this week for my birthday and I now have a complete maternity wardrobe to take me through the end of this pregnancy, which helps me feel like I actually look pregnant now, not just chunky! :)

Okay, so I'm sure this is what you've all been waiting for. We had our big ultrasound on Friday afternoon. Baby is measuring great, legs, arms, head, organs etc, is all measuring right at 20 weeks which the ultrasound tech said is PERFECT! We were even able to get a good look at some specific details on the ultrasound. So for those of you wondering......

Wasabi is..... A GIRL!!!

It doesn't get more exciting than that! After our ultrasound though we went and registered at Babies R Us and Target. Boy was that overwhelming! But we finally picked out all the fun necessities that our little girl will need!

We have another doctor's appointment this week to go over the results from the ultrasound and to schedule more prenatal testing! I cannot believe it's alreayd half way over!

Until next time...
