half way

Here we are at 21 weeks! I feel great and everything is going as it should. Even though I'm in my 2nd trimester, I still feel like I have a bit less energy than normal, but that's all part of the fun and games I guess!

I have gotten 2 comments so far on my belly from 2 different girls at the gym. And they were good comments. Like, look at your cute belly! So I guess I can deal with that :)

This last picture is to show you my new cute scarf! And see, you can't tell I'm pregnant when I wear it :) ha ha. Not like I'm trying to cover it up. I've had to pull my maternity stuff out, but luckily I can still wear some of my "normal" clothes. I kind of gave up on my pants because even though the elastic trick works for some of them, my pants always seem to fall down, and then you can see the fly down and well, that's just not cool. So I gave in to maternity pants so I don't have to think about that.

My ultrasound revealed that my cervix was right up by my placenta, so at my next appointment they will have me schedule another ultrasound to make sure my cervix has moved away from the placenta. The complication would be if it is attached, then I would have bleeding come delivery which is obviously not good. The doctor seems pretty sure that it will move, so I'm excited to have another shot at seeing this little guy!!

I have to add that Molly wants to name the baby drummer boy or Prince Phillip. Justin is pretty stuck on Jackson, which I like, but it's sooo popular. So we are working on the name. We'll see what happens.

oh man, just today i read a blog and someone had named their baby "drummer." you should do it. :) crap. wish i could find it now.

also, in 2010, jackson was the 25th most-popular boy name. and although i have NO idea what year you were born, i guessed 1985. and in that year, the 25th most popular boy name was Thomas. so, how often did you see that come up?

Definitely a cute belly. I wish mine was small again! Actually...I just wish mine was gone! I'm looking forward to a flat(er) stomach again!!!!!!!!!

Becky said...

I'll have to echo Karen -- definitely a cute belly! Good luck with the names. Tell Justin it's your turn to have the final say (didn't he pick which spelling to do for Alison?)... haha! :)

Christine said...

As always you look adorable. And I'm not sure I would call pregnancy fun and games :).

Prince Phillip, now there is a name:)

P said...

I think you should name him Prince Charming....I mean he'll take after his Dad naturally and he's the most charming guy I know, right after my HUSBAND, of course. HA.

Maybe you'll just have to SEE him to know. GOOD LUCK. And you look SUPER cute, as always, belly or not. DARLING. LOVE the scarf. Hope you got to go to the game too.......;) Wish we were closer.

You look so cute, the girls at the gym are right!
I am excited for you guys to have a handsome little boy joining your family! Just cause its a boy doesn't mean Justin has the final say:)
