Approaching the half way mark

I cannot believe I am almost 20 weeks along! The time is flying by- so much to do! We have a really great idea of what we want the baby's room to look like, and I have started putting together a binder with all of my (our) ideas in it for the nursery, strollers, etc.  It is a bit overwhelming, but I think if we tackle it one thing at a time, it will all seem a bit more managable. Right now, the baby is about 8 1/2 ounces, and 6 inches long, with arms and legs now proportional to the body.  By now, they say the baby can hear our voices too.  Pretty cool!

I bought my first purchase for the nursery over the weekend.  It came from the Hallmark store, and is a plack that says "If you can dream it, you can do it" - it is a walt disney quote and has a little mickey mouse on it as well.  There is another one we want to get that says "sent from heaven straight to you" from the movie Dumbo.

How far along? 19 weeks  
Total weight gain: + 3lbs  
Maternity clothes? nothings changed here... still rocking the belly band, a few maternity blouses that are flow-y, and lots and lots of Maxi Dresses for after work and the weekends 
Stretch marks? none yet
Sleep: our AC was out over the weekend (perfect timing with the 90 degree heat and all!) so that was a bit rough, but we have it taken care of now, and are both sleeping much better    

Best moment this week: getting the fabric swatches for the nursery bedding!!  
Miss Anything?: allergy medicine!    
Movement: still nothing :(  patiently (ya right) waiting 
Food cravings: cereal with fruit, Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad, Nordstrom Cafe's Cilantro Lime Vinagerette
Anything making you queasy or sick: eating normal, with a few extra snacks throughout the day, and a few pregnancy modifications   

Gender: Not finding out and couldnt be more excited!  
Symptoms: I'm feeling really good. Don't have too many symptoms, other than the ever growing belly. Although this heat wave was a bit of a reality check for the months to come
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!! (with the occasional mood swing)
Looking forward to: feeling the baby move for the first time!! continuing to see my bump grow
