20 Weeks=Halfway There!
Well we have survived to the halfway mark in the pregnancy and look forward to the end even more with every passing day! For those of you who are wondering here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions:
--Yes, Covey has tried saltines
--Yes, we know what we are having--a baby.
--No, we are not planning on a second ultrasound and we are NOT going to find out the sex of the baby.
--Yes, we have decided on names and they are in pen in the baby book, but we aren't sharing them until after the Cletus is born and renamed.
Cletus seems to have inherited his parents gracefulness. Almost every book I have describe the baby's movements as "fluttering"--Cletus doesn't do that. It is like he swims full speed in one direction, pummels full force into my uterus and does an about face and finds the other side. I am not sure if I should be worried about brain damage at this point (the walls aren't moving but he keeps smacking into them) or thrilled that he is such an active explorer. The first few times it happened I joked that he must be tripping on the umbilical cord.
Cletus made his second trip to visit Granny and Grampy in Charlottesville this past weekend. He wasn't all that thrilled with the car ride. He and his pregnant mommy stopped at all three rest areas on both trips. This was the first time since Christmas (and we shared the big news). One thing that we both had a lot of fun with was shopping for maternity clothes with Granny. Cletus now has room to move without those pesky snaps and zippers in his way. Long live elastic!!
