Halfway There!

I'm so excited to be 20 weeks along!  That is, until I think about how long 20 weeks is...then I realize how far I have to go.  Dogs are only pregnant for 2 months.  Do they know how lucky they are? (Don't remind me that they live much shorter lives, that's not what we're talking about here.)  Okay and the opossum is prego for 12-13 days!  So what if they have to finish out the process in a pouch.  Crazy marsupials.  I've been pregnant for 5 long months and I still have basically 5 more to go.  I'm going to be a house.  I know it's all worth it in the end when you get to meet your prize.  I'm willing to wait, just not patiently.

19 weeks - pumMango

I made a killer mango salsa with that sucker after I nursed it.  I've never cut a mango before.  It's a mess! 

Today I have an appointment for my 20 weeker.  I do not get to find out the sex until week 22, which is not good for the patience problem I struggle with.  Any guesses on what I'm having?


  1. I am going to guess a boy! No real reason.. just want Merrick to have a buddy. :)
