Whoaaaaa, We're Halfway There

I've been a little terrible about keeping up with the whole bumpdate idea, so now you get the joy of three weeks of pictures in one! Forgive me, I don't have fruit/veggies for two of the weeks. GASP. You will just have to use your wonderful imagination.

How far along: 20 weeks today!

Total Weight Gain: 7 lbs {I'm only 3 lbs below the total weight gain with Gbear... it's taking some getting used to the idea that weight gain is ok!}

Maternity Clothes: Maternity pants {so comfy!} but mostly normal shirts and dresses so far 

Best Moment this Week: We had the anatomy ultrasound on Monday. In true Army fashion, hubs texted me that morning saying he probably wasn't going to be able to come after all. Cue hormonal meltdown. I've been fine going to my appointments on my own {Centering is fun, but I really don't think it's hubs ball of fun} but THIS time I cared. He was deployed last time. I did NOT want him to miss this. Thankfully, his command was understanding and let him leave just long enough to come see the little Boobeary squirming away. {everything looked good!}
Gender: HB couldn't wait, sooooo he knows, but is under threat of castration if he tells me {or anyone for that matter}
Movement: Getting more and more frequent- I can even feel it with my hand sometimes :-)
Food Cravings: Green Veggies: green beans, squash , Butterfingers, caesar salad wraps
Food aversions: most of the same as before, but none of my aversions are as strong {although I still hate ramen, which was pretty much a daily meal pre pregnancy.... what can I say, my diet is still in college lol}
What I Miss: Margaritas, deli meat, sushi
Sleep: I've been waking up with serious anxiety at nights- so candy crush has re-entered my world to calm my nerves
What I am looking forward to: organizing the third bedroom and turning it into a nursery! I've started clearing stuff out and I can't wait until I can see progress

Belly Button: Out and proud haha

And now the pictures!

That's My Jam

I love music. I won't claim to have excellent taste in music, I like what I like {Backstreet Boys comes on the radio you can be sure I'm turning it up} From time to time I hear songs and I think, this. This is my song right now, or in this case, songs. 
The first is by Birds of Tokyo. I had never heard of them until this song and quite honestly I haven't gotten around to listening to anything else by them because I'm just too in love with this song.
And my second song of the moment: On Top of the World by Imagine Dragons. I won't lie, if I had known who sang it first I probably wouldn't have even listened to it. If I hear Radioactive on more time I may just need to stick my head in a freezer {and hope there's some ice cream in there too}, but this song is my happy song. Every time I hear it, it puts me in a good mood and it's the perfect song for rolling down the windows and turning it up loud while enjoying the sunshine.
What are you listening to these days?

Just Call Him Voldemort

Naming a child can be tricky. With some of the crazy concoctions that pass as names, perhaps some don't have quite as hard a time picking a name, but alas the husband and I are struggling.

Sure, we still have months to decide, but dear husband wants to find out if it's a boy or a girl {while I want to remain surprised} and unless I can convince him otherwise, we have to decide a name before the anatomy ultrasound or else he'll totally give it away. We've been joking about names for awhile {before this baby was even a possibility} Awesome names. Fabulous ones like:
Gandalf Oscarmeyerwiener
Ragnar Danger
The Doctor
{clearly we are huge nerds}

Gbear even got in on the action. He suggested: 
Dinosaur Icee
Train WooWoo

My one request when naming a baby is that I would like to use an Irish first name. We've got girl names down {since we didn't use them for Gbear} but finding another boy name has been impossible. I made a list of at least 15 names and HB didn't react to any of them. I later came to learn that he hated them all, but of course, when asked if he had any suggestions there was zip. So at this point, I'm thinking Voldemort is a good option. S/He who must not be named. Has a good ring to it right? Not too trendy?
