Week 20

Today I am 20 Weeks!  
I have reached the half way point in my pregnancy.  
Yeah!  
Baby Stafford is the length of a Banana!  
This week is an exciting week for us on Wednesday morning we get to find out the Gender of Baby Stafford!  I am so looking forward to this appointment that I hope I can sleep the next two nights.  We have some FUN plans this week for our family and friends.  I can't wait!  

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along:  20 weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss:  Not sure, but I will find out on Wednesday January 6th, 2010
Maternity Clothes:  None Yet
Sleep:  Sleeping is going okay I wake up worried that I will roll over on my belly or back.  But I did get a new full body pillow.  I just love it!  
Best Moment this week:  It will be on Wednesday when we find out if we are having a boy or a girl! 
Gender:  Not Yet, but Wednesday is the BIG DAY!
Movement:  None 
Food Craving:  Honey Nut Cheerios and Dark Chocolate
What I miss:  I still miss Chocolate Milk
What I am looking forward to:  Our appointment on Wednesday, I know I have said this several times in this post but I am so excited!  
Symptoms:  Hip pains, but I think that was due to all the driving and sitting I did the past two weeks.  

So if you would like to leave me a comment and guess what we are having I would love to hear from all of you!  Have a great week!

I am SOOOO excited for you, Melissa. We'd commented back & forth awhile back because I'm from Montana too (just returned from Christmas there actually =) and I am SO excited that you're expecting a miracle baby-wow. You have so very much to look forward to, I just can't even tell you. I've done this four times and I even wish I could have more (but we're SO "done", haha). Just wanted you to know how very happy I am for you and I am praying for a beautiful, healthy baby-Praise God!! You are a glowing mama. Happy 2010 =)

Oh you are so sweet not to have maternity clothes yet! I gained 48 pounds (not suggested). I hope you have a girl - they are so much fun to dress! And what a great idea to have a reveal party - might have to do that for my next....

I don't know if I have ever commented before, but I thought this was worthy of a comment....I guess girl! That drive to the doctor on the day of the BIG ultrasound seems like the longest drive ever!

Hansen Family said...

What a beautiful picture, I so wished that I would of taken belly pictures like you are with Aidan and Drew to have when they grow up. What a beautiful way for your little girl or boy to reflect back on their journey of life. You both are already amazing parents by savoring each moment of this pregnancy and the difficult road taken to get to this point. Enjoy your time on this road and continue to document the special moments you have. Thanks again for always sharing with us so at least I can be apart of your journey from a distance. Also like always it is so nice to talk to you on the phone. Look forward to your amazing story that you get to experience on Wednesday. Love to you and Chad

The Lane Family said...

I found your blog through Kelly's Corner!! I have been following your story for awhile and decided to leave a comment. Our family has had a wild ride to get children....from loss to using in-vitro to having a little boy and twin girls.

I think boys are so fun to and wonderful but girls are just as fun!! But my guess is a boy...don't know why it just is!!!

The idea of having a party is AWESOME!! I wish I would have thought of that :)

If you decide you want to check out our fun, crazy life just send me your e-mail to wendelton@gmail.com and I will add you since we went private!!

r- m val said...

i'm guessing boy based on how you seem to be carrying him and what you said his heart rate was the first time or two... but i know you want to a girl...so i can't wait to hear what it is! :)

Kim said...

Melissa,
I can't wait to see your reveal and how you revealed it to everyone!!! So exciting!!! You look fabulous. I wish I had such fun style like you.
I am going to a guess a little boy! But regardless, it will be precious and fun!
