What's that? Oh, nothing, I'm just HALFWAY THROUGH.

Halfway through a pregnancy. Now slightly over halfway thorough. Holy shit. Holy crap. Is this really going to happen?

I hope so because I have a closet full of shit that isn't going anywhere. Baby better come use it!

Here are some pics from our anatomy scan today. Everything looked great, although the kid does have some mutant-ly long arms, apparently. The doctor didn't say anything about it, but she left the screen up as I was getting dressed and there's a little chart that says the averages for everything.

See, mutant-ly long arms:

And small head. I can only assume the baby was trying to make it easier on me to deliver, which is very nice, but since I'm having a c-section it can grow that head as big and smart as it wants to. Methinks it's time to break out some Nietzsche or James Joyce or some shit.

Why have I started cussing in my blog more lately?  Maybe it's an extinction burst, trying to get it all out before the small child arrives.

Anyway. Small head, big arms. Maybe a monkey.

The 3D picture doesn't do much to solve the monkey versus baby debate. Whatever it is, it's pretty damn cute.

Definitely cute, though, right? Or am I already one of those moms that can't see that they have an ugly kid?

I thought the second trimester was supposed to FLY by, but it's not. At all. It's dragging. I just want to get to viability at 24 weeks and then 28 and 32 and 36 weeks (all milestones when babies born at that gestational age do better by leaps and bounds than the previous milestone) and then full term and then have a BABY. Alive. In my arms. That I can then bring home and play dress-up with. Baby clothes are cute!*

*Not the only reason I want a baby. I swear. I also want it to do dishes. And clean up dog poop. And cuddle.


  1. The ultrasound pics are just so flippin' cute! Congrats on reaching the halfway point! :D

  2. Woot! Such a great milestone! I love the screen of all the measurements. And my friend, that is one cute babe!

  3. So...you promised a gender reveal!!! Lol. I am holding you to that!

  4. GAH! I'm so happy for you! And also shocked because my baby has a tiny head and freak arms according to the scan I had Tuesday!

    I so relate completely to the 2nd tri dragging. And to everything you said about hitting those milestones. I'll be over here drinking caffeinated soda to speed up time. Best wishes for these next few weeks to viability!

  5. Very nice lips on your little person...so no one will notice the monkey arms. So happy for you. Hope the next few weeks fly by!

  6. So beautiful! :) Congratulations on making it half way. Good call on letting it all out...kids pick up the naughty words faster than any other! LOL Good luck!

  7. Why does your kid look like she actually has some fat on her at 20 weeks?? Cailin had extremely sharp features or her 3d photo session. No fair! I had to trick my gyno into getting an ultrasound at 28 weeks so i could see my baby with some padding ;o)
