week 20: pomagranate

Week 20
this week our baby boy is the size of a pomegranate, which makes me feel very festive for some reason.  christmas is right around the corner now and i can't wait!  loyal and i decided that for christmas this year, instead of getting each other gifts, we are going to go to Buy Buy Baby and get some things for the baby.  i think that will be so much more fun than getting a shirt i will probably have forgotten about in 6 months.  we also decided to go ahead and book tickets to new orleans and i am super pumped about that too!

as far as pregnancy stuff...i have noticed that my face has cleared up significantly.  maybe the "pregnancy glow" has finally decided to make an appearance.  other than that, the only other symptom that i've noticed is a sharp pain in my stomach from time to time.  right on track according to my pregnancy app:

You may notice some achiness in you lower abdomen or even an occasional brief, stabbing pain on one or both sides.  The ligaments that support your uterus are stretching to accommodate its increasing weight.

good to know.  the biggest thing that happened this week was that loyal felt the baby kick!!!  we were out to eat, mexican of course.  after i finished eating i kept feeling the baby moving all over the place.  i told loyal to press on my stomach, right below my bellybutton.  it took a couple of seconds but i felt a kick and told him that was it.  he felt it!  he said it felt as if you put your hand over someones heart and felt their heartbeat.  such a special moment, so of course we had to celebrate with pumpkin breadpudding. :)
