October 3, 2015 Week 20 was ... strange. Baby wise, this was pretty darn exciting and fun! Life wise, it was .... I don't even know the word! How do you use one word to describe all the stuff you feel when there is a shooting with mass casualties in the same building you took classes at one summer, and all while your very best friend is there in class and in lock down for hours?? That was this week!
The week started out beyond exciting. This whole pregnancy has changed for me now that I know what is growing inside of me. Monday we had our anatomy scan in Springfield at the Maternal Fetal Medicine clinic. The number one thing we wanted to take away from that visit was the knowledge that our baby is healthy and progressing as should be. But learning that we are having a little GIRL and that she is perfectly healthy with no markers to signal concern for any abnormalities? Well that was an added bonus! How many times have I said SHE and HER this week? No clue! We never say her name, although we know what it is. And of course people ask, but it's not going to be revealed until she is in my arms in February. Even her very own grandma (aka Glamma) doesn't know which name we have settled on!
On a side note, my belly button is out of control. Do you see how Man Friend's finger disappears into it now?? I can dry off, then lean forward and have more water come out after my shower. I'm like a camel storing water!

My Meniere's Disease has been rearing its ugly head again, I suspect from the changes in the weather and recent stress. It's made the last couple of days pretty difficult when you mix vertigo with regular pregnancy stuff. Oh, and did I ever mention my strangest pregnancy symptom? Sneezing. I can't stop. I hardly knew I was pregnant and the sneezing began!
So that's this week in a nutshell. Very strange, but also very wonderful!
