Half Baked

So I hit the halfway point on Thursday - 5 months down, 5 to go! (Yes, that equals 10 months....pregnancy is 40 weeks, not 36. I have no idea why everyone says 9 months when it's really 10)
I've gained 11 pounds so far but it feels like 20. I can only imagine how heavy I'll feel when I really do hit the 20 pound mark.
I am dead tired in this picture but it was the day I hit 20 weeks so I wanted to mark it with a picture. It is SO hard to sleep on your side when you're regularly a belly/back sleeper. I keep waking up to flip over bc my hips hurt from the pressure.
We had a new ultrasound the other day but I'm not posting those pictures bc they are crap. I could scribble on a piece of paper and paste it on here and it would be just as clear as what the Army tried to pass off as Andrew. I think we got spoiled at 4D Peek. They have WONDERFUL equipment there.

I feel like I just found out like a week ago and I'm already halfway done. Good grief, I need to get on that nursery. We've ordered the furniture already - here it is:

We are thinking chocolate brown on the walls with either his name or a Bible verse scripted onto the wall. Any suggestions? No, we're not using the quote from 1st Samuel about "For this child we have prayed" bc we already have that on a ceramic plate (thanks Gigi!) that we'll have in there. Plus he wasn't planned so we didn't technically start praying for him until after he was already growing in there. We still have to move all the guest room furniture out and into the office, paint the walls, figure out what else is going on the walls, find bedding, finish fitting Sam's stuff into my closet (which has been ROUGH! I had to give up half my closet that was already over stuffed), order a slipcover for the recliner after we figure out the nursery colors....pick the high chair (we've narrowed it down to 2), find room in the kitchen cabinets for bottles and whatnot, BLAH! Do you know how frusterating it is to find time to do these things when your husband really wants to help but is hardly ever home on the weekends bc he's off saving the world? And when he is home on a Saturday, he usually has duty which means he cannot be more than 30 minutes from the base and the closest place to buy baby stuff is in Nashville, 45 min. away? WHY did I have to fall for Superman? Now I know how Lois Lane felt. eesh.

BUT, HEY - HE'S NOT IN IRAQ OR AFGHANISTAN, RIGHT? Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand he's not going anytime soon!!!!!!!!!! We found out a few days ago that he's being held back from the next deployment bc they want him to stay behind as a senior agent to help run the office. So Mr will get to see the first crawl, the first step, hear the first word, etc instead of hearing about them from me or watching them on a webcam or dvd I send to the desert. THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now of course this is the Army and all things are subject to change at any second of any day - but as of now, Mr's not heading to Afghanistan next spring. WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO!


  1. It gets a little rough torwards the end, but it is all worth it, and plus you will loose alot of the weight pretty shortly after you have him. I love the furniture you picked out!

    I found a scrapbooking website, that has a lot of baby quotes.

    can't wait to see pictures of the nursery once you get it finished!

  2. Your belly is finally sticking out further than your boobs, hahaha... sorry I had to!!!
    I told that to Kyle and he said it didn't take long for it to happen to me either, because I had that problem with the extra juice ( amniotic fluid) yes he called it Juice!!! haha... Men!!!
