20 Weeks

I am amazed, stunned, and a little bewildered that in 20 more weeks, we might just have a baby in our lives.  I am trying to process how much our lives will change, that I won't be able to come and go as we please, that my love of sleep will have to be on the back-burner, and that this baby is really a little person, with *his* own feelings, thoughts, and ideas on how he will process things.  It's a biological miracle.  I go between feelings of elation and excitement to being overwhelmed and just wanting to forget about everything that still needs to happen.

Health-wise, everything is good.  We had an ultra-sound last Friday, and baby looks just fine.  No problems.  Hubby and I were so amazed to see the 4 chambers of the brain, the heart beating, *his* lips moving.  How incredible that my body knows what to do, and that all these cells seem pre-destined to work so beautifully in sync!

House-wise, Matt has finished with the basement project and it now has a lovely red concrete floor.  We get the sense that this may be a summer room because it's going to be very expensive to heat in the winter months.  He's finishing putting all the furniture back, and then I need to shop for curtains to help keep what little heat is in that room, actually in the room.  :)

20 weeks.  I feel like I just found out I was pregnant.  Where has the time gone?
