How far along? 21 Weeks! How am I over half way?!
Baby is now the size of: Banana (Random Fact: I eat at least one banana per day).
Gender: A GIRL
Movement: YES! Now they seem to be wave like feelings.
Food cravings: Gum Balls. Those tiny little colourful gum balls you put in an at home gumball machine. I HAVE to have them.
Emotional moment this week: I was pretty disappointed with our 20 week ultrasound experience. Although everything looks great (phew) and baby is cute as ever, I just came home really disappointed with the vibe (and the photos we got to take home). My tech was pure “blah.” Very nice, yes, but had no emotion whatsoever. I mean, I know she does this day in and day out and a baby inside a human being isn’t anything special to her (enter dumbfounded look here) but seriously put on your game face woman and pretend! Beau brought me back to reality by reminding me it was really special for us and nothing else mattered but a healthy little babe.
Best moment this week: Gosh, Beau really treated me like a Princess this week. On the actual day we officially entered 20 weeks he had a surprise perfectly staged in our kitchen. He even wrapped everything he could (I love surprises, and therefore wrapped gifts are truly appreciated). Stunning orchids, a card with a beautiful message inside <3, a beautiful mommy necklace, red velvet cupcakes specifically with cream cheese icing and even little decor pieces to bring the look together. Goodness me, that was SO thoughtful and made my heart so full! If that wasn’t “boyfriend of the year” worthy enough, he surprised me the day of our ultrasound too with a mini cake he had ordered to celebrate our awesome day seeing baby Girl. White cake with the brightest pink icing I’ve ever seen, topped with some precious pink baby booties. Come, on…. what a keeper! And of course, it’s pretty darn awesome seeing your little baby on the big screen.. even if you’re tech is personality-less 🙂
Excited For: I am actually really looking forward to my baby shower. It’s not until September (September 20th to be exact) but my mom’s excitement for it has me really excited <3
I think my belly has had a dramatic growth spurt this week and I am SO thankful that L.B Photography captured such fun photographs for me to cherish.
