Halfway and Hundred

How far along? 20 Weeks, 1 day

Total Weight Gain? 7lbs.

Symptoms? who knows? I think I've forgotten what was like before symptoms.

Stretch Marks? Still just the two.

Sleep? Wake up a lot, to turn over, but it's ok.

Best Moment Last Week? Getting to tell everyone we're having a girl.

Movement? I think so. It feels like my belly is never still, but there are a couple places where I am consistently having twitches, so I think it's her.

Food Cravings? Major sugar. Cake, preferably.

What I miss? Being able to lift heavy stuff myself. I feel like a bum when I have to have someone else do it for me.

What I am looking forward to? Feeling definite movement!

Milestones? We're halfway!!!!!

How is Daddy? Awesome, as usual. He's still having a hard time calling the baby a "her" or "she" though.

This is my 100th post! I can't believe it. I thought about going back and reading through my 100 posts, but I figure maybe I should just leave it be. I would never have guessed that at 100, I'd be 20 weeks pregnant, so I'll just take that and be grateful.

Some of you asked last week if we had a name for her picked out. We've had names for years! We will be calling our daughter Catherin Vaughn. Catherin (without the "e" on the end) has been in the family since the 1740's. All us girls are named Catherin. And we picked Vaughn cause it sounds really cool with our last name. :) But I plan on calling her Cate.


  1. Congrats on your 100th post! And her name is beautiful! Love it when family names are used!

  2. beautiful name! Vaughn is really pretty with Catherin too :)
