Yesterday was my 20 week appointment and baby sure has grown!! Jake was able to get the day off from work so he went with me. We got to see the Jelly Bean's arms & fingers, saw his/her little face & ears, and saw lots of squirming around.
Jake really loved hearing the heartbeat (it was his first time to hear it) and my favorite part was seeing the spine & little fingers. We decided that we would not be finding out the gender; Jake was adamant that we not find out and I didn't really mind either way. The only bad thing about it was that we didn't get to see the toes, but we'll have plenty of toe time in a few months. :)

At one point baby even gave us a thumbs up! I can't wait to meet this kid!
We got some great mail this week too. One of our Facebook friends sent us this adorable crocheted cowboy hat & boots!

And I got (most of) my birthday yarn! I was able to catch The Plucky Knitter's latest update and picked up a couple colors I've been lusting after for a while now. Lincoln is a gorgeous copper that I think will become another honey cowl. The honey cowl was actually my first knitted project, after my learn-to-knit washcloth. It's a great scarf, but because I didn't know how to use stitch markers yet the pattern is a little wonky.

I've also cast on a baby cardigan and hope to have progress pictures later this week.
Pregnancy-wise, I'm often tired, have achey joints, & trouble sleeping, but for the most part feel pretty good. And the energy spurts I do get are great! We're having Jake's aunt & uncle over for Thanksgiving next week so there's a long list as to what still needs to be done, but it's slowly getting smaller. At least I can always close doors to hide messy rooms!
