week 20 this and that

Wow, week 20! I feel like it's been forever since I've posted an update. Our big scan is this Wednesday. I'm excited and nervous, of course you KWIM.

DH, FIL, and I went on a walk last night to check the corn and soybean fields. I told DH that was Monkey's first field check and DH had the biggest grin. It hit me as we were walking that today would be 20w and I was half-way through the 2T and then duh, 20w is also half-way through the pg. Wow. My belly button is getting ready to pop and that makes the pg seem more real somehow. I am in awe. I also realize that there is a lot to do in the next 20w! Where did the time go? Ah, and yet...I can't wait to be holding Monkey.

I am still taking Zofran. Each time I don't because I think I can go without it I throw-up multiple times. I'm afraid to not take it now. So far, I think I have a net gain of 1 pound (lost 4, then gained 5). I really hope Wednesday's appointment shows more gain. I was so happy last night because I just wanted to eat everything we had in the house, LOL.

I will update asap after Wednesday's scan. Come on Wednesday!

Yay for 20 weeks! I have rarely been off zofran. Of my 34 weeks, maybe been off it 4 total weeks. Nausea sux but at least it's for a Good cause.

Congrats on making it half way =D I hope your sickness starts to ease away! I eat all the time and I'm still about 9 pounds down from where I started. I've started getting hungry about an hour after I eat a whole meal though so I think I might start the weight gain soon.

Yey for reaching half way! It's funny how certain things like your belly button make it seem more real! Here's to a straight forward 20 weeks!
