21 Weeks!

We had a doctor's appointment today. I think it will go pretty fast after this. The holidays will be a good distraction. We have another appointment in 4 weeks and then another 3 weeks after that. Then we will be going every two weeks! We were given a schedule for birthing and parenting classes. We probably won't do those until after the holidays when we are closer. The doctor also mentioned that I am gaining weight too fast. Robert thinks she is nuts but I started to worry. I haven't even gained that much and I'm eating well. I am going to try not to worry about it too much, but it will be in the back of my mind.
I also started craving something! Brach's peppermints! Thankfully it's nothing too bad for me. I don't why it can't be fruit but at least it isn't chocolate. I still like chocolate, don't get me wrong, but I don't crave it.
At our appointment today, we had an ultrasound. Robert was going to scan them so I could post them but he didn't have time at work today so hopefully tomorrow. He was so cute, I can't wait to hold him. He had his hands up by his head and was moving around. I still can't believe it, there's a baby inside of me. It's a crazy miracle. I am still so excited, nervous, anxious and thankful.

20 weeks!

Halfway done! I can't believe how fast it's gone and how slow it's gone at the same time. Sometimes it seems like I should be closer to the due date and sometimes it feels like just yesterday I was only 5 weeks. The pictures that we take of my belly never turn out the way I expect. It looks weird to me.
I can feel him move like crazy. Hopefully, we will be able to feel him from the outside soon. He's going to be very active! I want Robert to be able to feel him move so that he can see what I get to feel everyday! I asked him how feels about all of this and his response is that he's happy. I know deep down he's more excited and he thinks about it more than he shows.
We have a couple of names picked out but I want to wait until I see him before we decide on a name. We have a doctor's appointment next Tuesday and we will have another ultrasound.
