Pregnacy Update ~ 20 weeks

I am so excited to have made it to 20 weeks! It is so awesome to know that in 19 weeks I will get to meet, snuggle and love on our sweet little boy. At my ultrasound I was so nervous that he might end up being a she after all. Before we found out I didn't care one way or another but since finding out at 15 weeks we were having a boy, I have fallen in love with him as a him and can't imagine having another girl. That being said, I am over the moon excited about Abigail being our only princess and if you know Abigail you know we got our girlie girl!

During the ultrasound yesterday, the little stinker kept his hands in his face the whole time so we never got a real good profile shot. I think he fell asleep during the ultrasound so that didn't help either. He was breech (no biggie right now) and was facing my spine. I LOVE feeling him move and watching my belly move. I have not been using my doppler every night since I started feeling him move all the time. In my opinion feeling movement it is the BEST part of pregnancy.

Here are a few pictures...
Here is my 20 week update!
