Half Way There!

Today marks 20 weeks of pregnancy. That means we are half-way done! That thought makes me excited and anxious all at the same time. Everyone asks how I'm feeling, so I just wanted to give a mass update on detais. I haven't had one case of morning sickness since I got on this roller coaster ride. The worst thing I have dealt with is backne (back acne) and slower digestion (don't make me spell it out people). I have been dealing with some serious nasal congestion that is now turning into a nasty cough, but I think it may finally be going away. If not, our next appointment is this Tuesday and I will ask the doctor to fix me. I'm still waiting for my pregnancy "glow", but I'm not holding my breath on that one. I do believe I am beginning to feel this little squirt squirm around in there. I have gotten a few good kicks that felt like someone flicking me from the inside out. Once was during the relaxation portion of yoga and the second time this little punter got me right in the bladder. I can't wait until Atom can feel him moving around too, so he can share in this awesome experience. I think I am beginning to enter the butter-finger stage of pregnancy that Loree warned me about, because I can't keep anything in my grip. I think I should invest in some steel-toed shoes to avoid any damage to my feet. So other than that, there really isn't much to report. I have been posting my weekly belly shots on Flickr if anyone wants to see what this kid is doing to me. We want to say a big "Thank You!" to Aunt Lisa and Uncle Steven for the new items for the nursery:
