Bump Watch - 20 Weeks!...

I'm half way there and it feels great :). On Tuesday we had an ultrasound appt. and found out we are having a sweet little GIRL! I really couldn't be happier...I'm a girlie girl and I am going to have TONS of fun playing dress up and oh the crafts I will be making...SO FUN! It's funny because it really would have been a lot easier for us to have a boy right now...I mean its almost like starting over with all the stuff we are going to have to buy but it seems like the easiest ways are not what me and spenc have in store for us. Though things seem hard at first, I have to admit that things ALWAYS work out for us. And no matter what our 3rd baby will be easy cause we will have lots of boy and girl stuff! I am grateful to know that I will at least have 1 boy and 1 girl. I have always said that I HAVE to have at least one of each. They are both so fun in there own ways and I had to experience having each so I am beyond excited to start life with a sweet little girl too. 

So I know we've only known a few days but I have been on a name hunt ever since and girl names are HARD! I really didn't think we'd have such a hard time agreeing or even finding some we liked. I really don't want a name that is really common but I don't want a name that is too different either. Something like Preston I guess...there's not a ton of them but there are definitely Preston's out there. I'm a little crazy about things sometimes and when I have something on my mind it doesn't leave until I have an answer...so this will probably bother me until we've reached a decision. So please if you have any suggestions or have heard something cute PLEASE share :). 

I've also been drooling over bedroom choices...I can't seem to decide what I want to do! There are sooo many fun choices out there for girls! I came to the conclusion though that I want to make her bedding...i spent quite a bit on Preston's bedding and i really think I could make my own for cheaper and get the colors and design I really want. 

Okay wow I really could go on and on about all the ideas and girlie stuff I have rolling around in my head but I will stop for now and show you a picture of how cute she is already :)!
She's got her little hand by her mouth...and I was just watching the little video we got and it looks like shes sucking her thumb haha. Look...

Telling you I am obsessed with her all ready is an understatement. I am SO EXCITED! 


And this is me today...sucking in is not really an option anymore. I think I'm still in the "fat" stage where you still can't tell I'm prego...more just fat. I started going to the gym about 4 or 5 times a week and doing the elptical for an hour and I can tell its working. I didn't gain any weight this appt :). But with Prestons birthday this week I haven't yet been to the gym since monday...I'm going today though!

congrats! That'll be so fun! Jer and I can only agree on one boy and one girl name (the girl name we've had since our first preg)so we are hoping for one of each. So that means we'll get two of the same sex. Oh well we'll keep what we get. Have fun with that little girl..it'll be great!

You look amazing! Congrats on having a girl, they really are so fun. Although I'm sure boys are too ( I just only have a girl..so I dunno) haha. Good lucky on deciding on a name, it's SO hard.

My mind is spinning just like yours with all the girly stuff you get to do! I seriously want to come over and make some cute baby girl stuff with you especially since it seems like its girl season and I could always use some cute baby stuff on hand for all the baby showers coming up. I'm so happy for you Chels!
