Week 20

As of today, I am HALF way to my due date! YAY!! I had my "official" 20 week check up today and Antonio went with me. We got to see Baby Boy Simpson and the ultrasound tech said that he looks "PERFECT". She also said he weighs 11 ounces which is right on track. At this point, Baby Boy Simpson measures the size of a cantaloupe.

It also says "Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation... baby's genitals are now fully formed! "

I went ahead and did TP Tuesday a day early. I am now 8 and 3/4 squares, so I am making progress.

I am still getting sick here and there, but it is still getting better and is definitely managable.

I also talked to the NP about some sharp pains I have been having in my stomach and she told me to take it easy with picking Tatum up. Easier said than done, but I am trying to do better.

I did my official weigh in today and I have gained 4-5 pounds now. The nurse didn't tell me and I forgot to ask, but it is somewhere in there. Also, for the record since I know there has been a little confusion, I gained 41 pounds with Tatum, not the 60 that seems to be floating around these days.

We met with the insurance lady today and this baby is going to cost us much less than Tatum did, which is always good news. She told us how much we had to pay upfront and when we started to write the check she told us that we had a credit on our acct, so we only owed about 2/3 the amount. Even better! She also told us that we have to have a name picked out before I deliver so she can send the paperwork up for the baby to get circumsized(I know that isn't how you spell that, but it's too late). EEEKKK!!

Needless to say, we still don't have a name or bedding picked out for the baby.

I guess that's it. I will be updating soon on our weekend and I also need to do an update on Tatum with pictures and lots of stories.

Until next time....

That is huge. I remember Danni's tar crap it was gross. I also remember if we had a boy the whole circumcision discussion. Poor kid, good thin he won't remember.
Name him Buck that's a good solid name.
