Pregnancy Update: Weeks 19 & 20

Week 19
This is the week we found out we're having a BOY! His name is going to be Michael David, after my husband's best friend (and one of mine) who has passed on. We feel so lucky to get to have a son, and name him for someone that meant so much to both of us.

(The only time you'll ever see my son's junk on the internet... hopefully.)

(His little face. I just want to kiss it already!)

My husband and I also bought him his first teddy bear the evening we found out. Isn't he cute?

His name is Rolth (it's a Jedi name), and he is so, so soft.

Other than finding out he's a boy, this week was fairly uneventful, pregnancy-wise.
Non-pregnancy wise, this weekend was when the Seahawks got into the Superbowl for the second year in a row! WOOHOO!!!

Week 20
The evening before my 20th week kicked off was not fun. I had some stomach issues, and just felt gross in general. Luckily, I had my 20 week appointment with my doctor. I had been jumping around quite a bit more than I should have watching the Seahawk vs Green Bay game, and when I told him that, he said I probably just upset my bowels and that as long as there was no bleeding, I was okay.
I also found out I gained 3lbs since my last appointment, which brings my total pregnancy weight gain up to 8lbs. My blood pressure is still really good at 117/70, and my fundal height was measuring at 19, so I'm right on track.

This weekend I went shopping with my mom and got some really, really cute stuff for the baby. But I might just do an overall baby haul before he's here on the blog, so I don't really want to post pictures of everything right now.

As of writing this post, I am at Week 21. I don't have another doctor's appointment until Week 24, and nothing major coming up.
See you all in 2 weeks!
