We had our 20 week appointment today (although I'm technically 19 weeks and 5 days ;-) ). I can't believe that we are already halfway through this pregnancy! I feel like it's flying by! The appointment today was absolutely amazing! We got to go through all of his little organs, from the brain, to the heart, to the kidneys. We also checked out his little spine and his arm and leg bones. It was so reassuring seeing him wiggle around and see his little heart beating like crazy. In case you couldn't tell, we also confirmed that he is indeed a boy! We can't wait to meet our little man!!

So yesterday after work we hurried out to Brentwood to Kids-n-Cribs, a fantastic baby boutique we found, to take a look at a crib that we were interested in, because we had found it on sale for the weekend at a store in Sacramento. We just went out to look, but we ended up buying! And not only that, but we decided to go ahead and get our Uppa Baby stroller too! We are so excited to have our first big purchases for our little one! It makes it so real to have those items in the house and know that we're going to have a little miracle to put in them in just a few months!

Of course I can't be sure, but while we were sitting at dinner last night all the sudden I felt a little popping in my belly! I think our little guy is finally big enough to kick Mommy so she feels it! Yay! We get to go in a week from today for our 20 week appointment. We'll confirm he's a boy and get to count all his fingers and toes and make sure all those mini organs are where they're supposed to be. I can't wait to see him again!!

So I am 17 weeks today! I can't believe how fast it's going by! I had my doctor's appointment this morning and according to him I'm "cruising"! I got to listen to the heart beat again, which is the most amazing sound on earth! Jason and I first heard it at about 12 weeks when we also found out (very early) that we are having a little boy! It makes me want to rent a doppler machine so that I can listen all the time! It's so reassuring to hear that little heart go crazy in there! The next milestone I'm waiting anxiously for is to feel our little man move! They say it can happen between 18 and 22 weeks, but I'm fervently hoping for earlier rather than later. However, in speaking to other first time moms, it seems to lean towards the later side. Either way, I'm very excited!!
