I’m still at that point where it’s not obvious yet that I’m pregnant.  I kind of expected that I’d be a lot bigger by now (not that I’m complaining, not at all).

I think I look pretty well for being 20 weeks along, though my waist has increased by three inches.  Chris has taken week by week pictures of me, but I just haven’t put them up yet.

It’s a Boy!

We had our appointment at 19 weeks yesterday.  Everything looks great.  He looks about 19 weeks along and very healthy.  The baby was very cooperative and she could see everything she needed to really well.  She said that he’s very active, and I should enjoy not being able to feel him just yet.  She also said that he has long legs (not sure where he’s getting those from).  Our baby looks so athletic right now.  I’m sure he’s going to be a handful once he learns how to crawl and walk.  It looks like we’re going to have the baby in Belfast.  We have a couple of names picked out, but we don’t plan on revealing the official name until birth.  Our next appointment is in 3 weeks.

Chris completed his first 10k on Sunday.  It was cold and a only a little rainy, but at least it wasn’t windy.  He finished just under 52 minutes.  He managed to run with a terrible side cramp for the last half of the race.

Nothing much going on right now.  Our anniversary is in 3 weeks (the day of our next baby appointment), but it looks like we’re not going to go anywhere for it.  Chris may be working that weekend and we don’t want to make plans because of that.  We are planning on doing a one night stay at a hotel with a Groupon I bought in mid-October.  We’re hoping to go to Germany for Christmas to visit Valentina and Joerg.  I also want to show Chris the Christmas markets as he has never been.  That was one of my favorite things while in Germany.
