halfway there

it's official- we're halfway there.
20 weeks have gone by and 20 weeks left to go.
it's honestly hard to believe.

i now feel little bumps and kicks throughout the day 
that make me smile from ear to ear.
nothing makes me happier.
it's still crazy to think that there is a tiny human in there.
a tiny human the size of a banana.
with a fast beating heart
and tiny fingernails.
but oh, how i love this baby.
all the way to the moon and back.

today we find out if it is a little he or a little she.
i can't wait to know.
it will make everything so much more real.
and to see its tiny profile up on the screen?
and hands? 
and feet?
my heart just might explode.


  1. so wonderful! we waited to find out the sex of our first, who is now 2, but with my 2 month old we chose to find out, and like you said, it made everything so much more real. i felt like i was better able to know my baby even though he was still in the womb. so excited for you and the adventures you're going to have with this little one!

  2. Best feeling! Unfortunately we couldn't be told the gender but it was still an amazing scan. Today is our 24th week :)

  3. Oh, I'm so excited for you. So...boy or girl? xx
