20 Weeks

We had our 20 Week ultrasound yesterday and the verdict is in. The baby bean is definitely a baby boy! The ultrasound was fascinating. Everything looks a-okay and on course for the due date, March 31. We couldn't be more overwhelmed with awe and excitement.

I purchased my first pair of maternity pants which are considerably more comfortable than the jeans I was bumping out of. My bladder has shrunk to the size of thimble so I am often seen walking briskly to the ladies room and while I haven't had any food cravings I have been listening to A LOT of Metallica. There is a lot to think about when it comes to baby necessities and not A CLUE where to begin, although I know for sure I'm not going to be buying a "used" breast pump. Does that strike anyone else as being completely revolting?

Week 18

click to ENLARGE

So, here is the first of a few, possibly several, BUMP pictures. I know this picture is totally contrived (which makes me a hypocritcal ass. See Week 17) but that's what happens when you're born with the brain of an artist/designer and refuse to use anything other than natural light. I'd like to just clear the air here and say out loud that I don't enjoy having my picture taken. I might feel differently if Annie Leibovitz was behind the camera and I'd just spent 3 hours in hair and makeup but for the most part I consider myself strictly NOT photogenic. So please, bear with me as I try to figure out what works best when it comes to this sort of thing. I can already tell you that our dead yard and car will not be gracing any backgrounds in the future.
