20 weeks

I'm half way there!!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Ours was very nice. We went to Arizona to visit my family! I was so great seeing everyone, meeting my new niece, seeing my sister's new house, celebrating my nephew's 18th birthday and just spending time talking with my parents.

On Thursday night, while sitting in my parent's living room digesting turkey and pumpkin pie...I'm pretty sure I felt the baby move! It was a bubbly feeling in the center of my belly and it didn't feel like the typical digesting grumbles. It happened twice that night! I haven't felt it again since, but it's also one of those things that you have to be paying attention at the right moment and running around all weekend, I didn't get much chances to pay attention.

It wasn't until the end of this week did I really notice how pregnant I looked. Certainly the type of clothes I wear affect that. I just get so giddy seeing myself in the mirror. I constantly tell Rob, "Look!! Look at this belly!"

We weren't going to do any Black Friday shopping since we were out of town, but we actually ended up scoring a few deals. Thursday Rob got an REI Black Friday email for a free infant car seat when you buy a BOB stroller. We were going to wait until the end of Dec. to see if REI had any BOB strollers on sale at their garage sale, but this deal was too good to pass up. So we got a plum BOB stroller, the infant seat stroller attachment and a free infant car seat! Our first big baby purchase. Then I bought some more maternity clothes, some at Kohls and some at Motherhood, both were having great deals. That Motherhood store, not as crazy expensive as I thought it would be and super cute clothes.
