20 WEEKS! 20 WEEKS! Halfway! :) Here's my update...

Size of baby:  The length of a banana! Baby Jude weighs about 10 1/2 ounces. At our ultrasound (2 weeks ago) baby was 9 ounces! I can't believe I am halfway... finally starting to "look" pregnant!
Symptoms: Just tired! I am so so so so excited that we know Baby Thurston is a baby boy. :) Otherwise, I found out I have low-lying placenta and they are going to monitor it with more ultrasounds in the next few weeks... I don't mind getting to see the baby again!

Cravings: Hmmmm... still Arby's Roast Beef's are on the top of the list. Lately I have been wanting more veggies & fruit. LOVE baby carrots with ranch... mmmmm.... Popcorn is a top snack also.

Something you Miss: Comfort while sleeping. I know it's only going to get more challenging... but I think I wake up at least 10x a night to re-adjust. Maybe that's why I'm so sleepy? Good prep for when Baby Jude arrives!!

Milestones: Feeling our tiny baby boy move around, revealing the gender at the party & starting our registries! Wow is there a lot to decide on when it comes to registering.... will be doing a post on advice here in the next couple days :)
Looking Forward To: Designing and starting the nursery! We have started to clean out/de-clutter our spare bedroom. We are going for a VINTAGE Sports Themed nursery :) I can't wait! We already checked out some antique stores and found some awesome stuff!

Prayer for our baby this week:

Dear Lord, Thank you for our son in my womb!! He is growing, growing, growing and it is such a great blessing to know that he is OURS. We are naming this child Jude as it means Praise & Thanks. That's what we feel when we think of Jude. Praising God and Thanksgiving for this amazing child you have intrusted to our care. When I think about a BOY, I have no idea what I am getting myself into... but you do! You will give us the strength and ability needed to raise Jude into a godly young man after your heart. Help him to continue to grow big and strong and remain safe as I have this time to nurture him my carrying him inside of me. We love you Lord, Amen.
